Beauty Rewind: A Makeup Guide to Looking Your Best at Any Age by Taylor Chang-Babaian is the makeup book to buy if you are over 40 and need to zhoozh up your look.  Now that women 40, 50, 60, and up are starting new careers, romances, and adventures, many of them find they also need a new look for their new life.

And while it can sound fun to say 50 is the new 30, the truth is that your skin changes as you age no matter how well you take of it. To look chic, sexy, and vibrant a woman has to learn now to adapt her skin care and makeup with each changing decade so her look evolves as she does – gracefully.

When celebrity makeup artist Taylor Chang-Babaian turned 40 she realized that her friends

Were also falling into the trap if not trying anything new or feeling too old to change or try out trends.

In Beauty Rewind, Taylor puts her 20-plus years of experience as a top makeup artist to work, sharing advice on skin care, fitness, hair, and makeup with women from 20 to 60.

She knows her stuff. I love her approach. Unlike other recently-published beauty books Taylor is not a one-look pony. She has many ideas to share with women about how-to apply makeup and take care of their skin. This is not a book with 20 different women all with same pink/brown lip gloss look.

Taylor has worked with celebrities such as Yoko Ono, Adrien Brody, Virginia Madsen, Kanye West, and Yunjin Kim. Her work has appeared in magazines such as Vogue, British Elle, Rolling Stone, and Essence.  It is clear to see makeup and hair is where she shines. Taylor really knows how to bring out a woman’s beauty at any age. Her advice on skin care and fitness is sound, but buy the book for her makeup and hair advice and use it.
