    I've been lucky. I have blonde hair & always have. So far no grey at all & I'm getting to the point where I almost have to appologize for that.
    I've told my beautician that when it does show up, I'm dyeing it.

    I can imagine myself at 95 saying "Aaaaakkk! I's here! Quick dye it. I don't want anyone to think I'm old!"

    Skin loses pigment as we age ... and so a stark contrast between skin and hair color ... confirms that we are aging and also that we colored our hair. It makes us look older. Gray hair is a gift of nature.

    Lighter hair ... such as Blonde and gray hair serve to frame and soften the *gulp* aging face.

    I was a natural blonde, then when I was in my 30's my hair darkened so I lightened it. Clairol. About 5 years ago I stopped lightening it and to my surprise, instead of showing dark roots, a little grey mixed in my hair and it is now a very pretty shade of light blonde. Almost, but not quite platinum. Strange, but I'm lovin' it!

    I am getting more interested in make up lately.

    I have been using Smashbox concealer in a stick....like it because it does not get on my hands.
    You can do it!

    We all get to things at different times in our lives....like you recently getting to make-up. All things in time, Grasshopper (remember Kung-Fu?)

    I have spent quite a bit of time, on this gray and rainy day, reveling in this thread. It has been very enjoyable! It takes me back to my high school days' pajama parties. I went to an all girls school (Catholic) and we were very close. It was wonderful to hang out and talk about girl stuff. We did this once a year as a fund raiser. Some of our classmates are still getting together for dinner once/month.

    I think a huge component of aging is genetics and moisturizing. I do believe in a quality product. I always look super-better when I moisturize, and I scare myself when I don't! Luckily, I come from a family of good skin. I've always been a minimalist when it comes to make-up. I may not look my age, but I KNOW my age....and I seldom discuss numbers of ANY kind. An older woman at the nail shop, the other day, was telling me a story and she said, "But you're still young....." I said, "Compared to what???" We let that drop!

    I have aged really bad the last 5yrs or so. Used to be when I told someone my age they would be surprised because I looked much younger. Now they're surprised because they think I'm older. The funny thing is, my life got less stressful and I started aging rapidly. Doesn't make any sense to me.

    I've always felt that I wasn't very wrinkled for 67, and attributed it to two things: 1) I've never smoked; and 2) I'm not skinny, so the fat fills out the wrinkles from underneath.

    While riding in the front passenger seat today, the bright sun was coming in my window. I had my visor down and looked up into the mirror and was surprised at how many wrinkles I saw. I said to my husband, "this bright sun makes me look really wrinkled." His response? "I'm thinkin' you'll never look into the visor mirror on a bright sunny day again."

    He's absolutely right. I snapped it shut, and I'm not going there again!
