Beauty and fashion trends are always a mix of the worst and best ideas. Championed on social media and retail sites, they usually have little to do with our 50-plus reality. But after the past few chaotic years we are all ready for something new. My advice? Just ignore the low-rise jeans, miniskirts and catsuits. Say no to yellow eyeshadow and emerald-green eyeliner and let the phrase “New Year, brave new you” be your guide to a fresh start.
