Staging Your Comeback

June 23, 2008 12:13:08 PM PDT
Make up ads, fashion articles and how-to books are often aimed at 20-somethings. But women of all ages are anxious to look their best. Christopher Hopkins known nationally as "The Makeover Guy" (TheMakeoverGuy.com) says it's time someone paid attention to women over 45. Hopkins believes that as women age, they become more beautiful but often feel less attractive. With tactics that turn back time, Hopkins has taken his 20 years of makeover experience and secrets and unveiled them in his new book, "Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45" (HCI Books -- $22.95).

"Staging Your Comeback" is not a typical quick fix makeover book, but rather a complete head-to-toe beauty revival, Hopkins says. He wants to motivate women to revive their looks with his proven comeback system, dramatic visual makeovers, humor and practical, easy to understand tips. The book gives "boomers" simple solutions to revive hair, makeup and clothing that does not cost a fortune. Hopkins also offers insider tips on lifting eyes without plastic surgery, how to handle thinning hair and dressing for every body type.

Obsessed with the ease in which busy women "let themselves go," or "focus on others, instead of themselves," Hopkins has dedicated his life to making over women in need of a comeback. He helps women with the challenges they face as they grow older and arms them with no-holds-barred advice and wake-up-call techniques to fight their way back to center stage as they enter what Hopkins calls "our second acts.""Staging Your Comeback is a labor of love to help women who want to look their very best but are too busy to spend the time or can't put all the pieces together," Hopkins says. "I don't see a woman for what she should be, I see a woman for who she can be."

In "Staging Your Comeback," readers will learn how to:

  • Recharge their beauty battery with the "Four A's" (Aspire, Approve, Assume, Affirm)
  • Reinvigorate their passion for fashion with "Big Five" (line, proportion, color, texture, accent)
  • Revamp a wardrobe to flatter a changing body
  • Refresh a face with "visible lift" makeup techniques
  • Renew their spirit and maintain the new look with their very own "Revival Guide," Armed with amazing before/after images, Christopher shares insider secrets to avoid a "dated" look and achieve a contemporary yet classic look:
  • Choosing the right eye and lip colors for an individual's look - and what to avoid!
  • Applying make-up with know-how for today's (not yesterday's!) look for day/evening and special occasions
  • Determining whether to hide or highlight graying or dulling hair
