Stars in their fifties have a way of looking like they are in their thirties, but what if you don’t have the same means to get there? How do you update your look or style?

Christopher Hopkins wrote Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45 so that you realistically get that Samantha from “Sex and the City” look. Or at least you can come close!
