I know beauty comes from within, but when I wake up, I go to the bathroom and lay out the paint-by-numbers face. I coordinate my lipstick and nail polish. I love eye makeup — I do three colors at least. When I look in the mirror, I feel stronger. This is my armor. I got my eyes done in my 30s, the lower half of my face in my 40s, and the whole thing in my 50s. You should do what you need to feel good. Every morning my husband Bill says, "You look so beautiful, honey!" When I die and meet God, I want to be able to say, "I used every gift you gave me."
