Confidence comes from feeling and looking great in midlife. As women embark on this new chapter they often review their fashion and beauty decisions: but with so much choice on offer how do you decide what will work for you today? This is where Lorraine Candy and Trish Halpin come in. Between them the duo have edited every fashion and beauty glossy on the UK newsstands, so their expertise is invaluable. And with access to the best experts in the business, there’s no styling, make-up, skincare, shopping or beauty treatment question they can’t answer.
