A Complete Makeover - Me

They say we should freshen our rooms up every 3 to 5 years and then a major makeover is usually due every 10 yrs. Well, I took a look at the pic you guys are use to seeing and realized it was taken when I was 60. I really didn't think it was that old. I also realized that I had been wearing my hair basically the same way for all those years and more too. Since I just turned 71, that is more than 10 yrs. and I was definitely due for a makeover. So today was the day.

This is what you are use to seeing. (Sorry for the bad quality, it was a pic of a pic.)


Now the new me. New hairstyle, new makeup, the works!!!


Short and sassy.


See, it is REALLY short. I think it needs a little bit heavier frosting, but otherwise I like it for a change.


A lot more wrinkles since the first pic, but hey, I earned every one of them, and I'm learning to wear them well. lol The make up specialist switched me out to just a tinted moisturizer. It gives the skin a little bit of a glow, and it doesn't settle into those beloved wrinkles. We need to remember to update our makeup every once in a while too.


I've changed out my profile photo to this one. If you see me on the street, I want you to be able to recognize me and be sure to stop and say hello.

So, how long since you did a complete makeover?

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits.

  4. You look fabulous, Marty! I am just starting to learn to appreciate the face that has been looking back at me in recent months. I just feel more aware of my age and myself in general, having quit smoking in May of this year. I did get a little bit of a new hairstyle a month ago, but nothing major going on yet!

  5. Hi Marty,
    You really are such a beautiful woman, both inside and out and you glow with confidence. You are such an inspiration to all of us with your beautiful blog posts and your creative ideas.
    I love your cute, short haircut, it's you and your make-up looks natural and pretty.
    I try my best to look good everyday and wouldn't think of leaving the house without make-up!
    My photo on my blog is current, but it doesn't hurt to get a new look every now and then.

    hugs

  8. You are beautiful, Marty. I LOVE the new haircut!!

    As for me, I recently (2 weeks ago) stopped highlighting my hair such a light blonde and am going with a light brown. We had new family photos taken last week, so, as soon as one of my kids downloads them for me, I'll be changing my profile photo from the 4 year old one I've been using. So, pretty soon, you'll be seeing a new profile photo of me too...and wondering who in the world it is.

    Have a lovely evening,
    Patti

  10. You look great, I like the new haircut. Usually every couple of years I do not get my hair cut and let it get long, this year I cut it and I am very happy with the new look. Sometimes I let my gray grow out too and not bother to dye it. It really does not bother me as much as it does my girlfriends, I think they are afraid of looking old by association.

  11. Marty -- you're a lovely woman! Love your new look -- I decided this year I would post a picture of myself every birthday -- I won't like it...but like you, I want folks to know the "real" me.

  12. Marty you are gorgeous. What to do with no more blue background? I can't wait for your next comment. It will take some getting used to, but what a great before and after! Thanks for sharing. Is that the camera you use to take all your fabulous pictures. What kind is it?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, I think you look wonderful and I love the newer "do"! I need to do the same and go for some change. I've had the same basic hairstyle for years now. Every time I try to change...whooops... the old Debbie sneaks back into my mirror.

    Here's to one good looking chick strolling through life!

    ReplyDelete
  14. And by the way... you have a stunning smile!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm a little older than you and I've been thinking about coloring my hair. You are making me think it's TIME. I like you hair style, cut and sassy! Age is just a number, attitude and good health are where it is at....! No rocking chairs for these "Grannys"! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  16. What a beautiful smile you have!:) I love your new do too! You are stunning!

  17. Marty, I love your new profile picture. If I saw you on the street, I would never in a million years guess you were 71! I love your thoughts on wrinkles, I feel the same way about both the wrinkles and my gray hair. I call them my "earned highlights". Good for you for doing a makeover, I really need to get with that program, I'm in a RUT! Hugs, Kat

  19. You look beautiful and I can't believe your age!! I wouldn't have recognized you because of the difference in hair color. A cute hairdo ! I am a bit frustrated with my oh so tweedy hair, but I tend to react to hair color so I am oh natural and it makes me look 20 years older, I do believe!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Just beautiful Marty-I love it! I always say, the only thing I've held on to for 20 years is a bad hair cut-maybe I need to shake things up too:@)

  21. Beautiful Marty! You are braver than me. I haven't put my photo on here yet. Well beyond the age of 6. LOL

  22. Beloved Marty! I love the NEW YOU! Every bit of it too! I agree with you...every nook & cranny of a new wrinkle brings satisfaction to me too, and I've certainly earned them! I think I'm having more trouble with my skinny neck getting skinnier than I am with my wrinkles debuting from time to time. haha! I'm a huge fan of yours, even though I don't get to visit as often as I'd like. As long as I'm a workin gal, I'll have to deal with less time blogging... :( Darn... But I am "Blessed" to be working...and I've very grateful for that! Huge blessing! Ciao for now my Friend! LOVE THE YOU! ;)

  24. Marty I think you look great! I can't believe you're 71. You really look much younger. I think a makeover is definitely something we should all do. My profile picture is about five years old but as I look in the mirror, I have gained more wrinkles too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Marty,

    Wow! You so don't look your age..you look marvelous darling!! I love your hairstyle..and your makeup is so natural looking..lets your natural beauty shine through!
    Fabulous makeover!!

  30. You look wonderful, Marty. I really like the new hair style. After years of struggling with my super straight hair (in years when curls were so popular)I now love my hairstlye. It makes me feel very confident. However, as I struggle with my weight, I hate taking photos of myself. Funny enough, tomorrow is the annual picture day at our school, staff included :(

    ReplyDelete
  31. Marty,
    I must say that you are as beautiful today as you were 10+ years ago, both inside and out!
    My mom just went to her class reunion as was told over and over again "that she was a clone of her self". She was wondering if that meant she looked old in highschool, but in reality, she still looks much younger than her years! In fact I was looking at her photos from the weekend, and thought maybe she had gone to the wrong reunion! You remind me of her!
    Marty, I wanted to let you know, that your comments over the past year have meant so much to me. I can remember back to the beginning of my blogging, when comments were few and far between, but over and over again, your sweet face would show up and fill my "in box" with encouraging words and smiles. I love to see where blogging has brought you, your cloche parties and tabletop tuesdays are so much fun ! God bless...

  38. Short and Sassy looks good on you! No one would think you were 71! I've been trying to let my really short do grow out just a smidge so I could have a little bit of a diffferent style. You look great, honey!

  43. Pretty lady! I know you are also beautiful on the inside, it just shines through your comments, blog, etc!

    I did my makeover recently, used a picture taken right after my 70th birthday. I think I may do another one soon, as this one doesn't seem to be big enough.

  61. You look fabulous! :) What a lovely lady. Beautiful!:)

    At 44, I am trying to get used to the new lines forming and the sagging of skin where it used to be firm. I'm afraid I'm not accepting aging as well as I'd like. :( A makeover would be nice but I have no idea when I'd find the time.

  62. You give us older ladies hope! I'm 60 now, but use a picture from 55! Maybe it's time I updated too. Thanks so much for your blog.

  71. Marty,
    I love the new YOU! !!
    I wouldn't highlight. . .as an ex-beautician, highlighting adds years NOT subtracts them! Also makes wrinkles MORE noticeable. . .
    so keep what you've got! Darling, you look FABULOUS!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Fondly,

  76. Wow! Marty, you do look great with your new makeover!

    I have been making over myself since April (pictures on my blog sideboard). I have lost 52 pounds and still have 8 to go. In August I got a new hairstyle and clothes but need new ones again. I can't wait for my final reveal on my 38th birthday Oct. 14.

  79. Well no wonder I was flabbergasted when I found out you're a great-grandma; you're far too young to be one! And you look a whole lot closer to 60 than 71, let me tell you.

  82. Marty,

    I love the new look, you look so beautiful and the color is fantastic. We all like to do an upgrade every once in a while and you totally deserve it. I too did a bit of a hair makeover recently and loved it when I got carded the next day, HA, that girl must have been slightly drunk ;-) Your beautiful new look goes with your wonderful sweet personality.

    ReplyDelete
  83. So sorry I missed this the other day! But better late then never right! You look so wonderful Marty! I still cannot believe you are 71. I have not had a makeover in some time! Nor have I changed out my makeup in sometime either. Hmm...now you got me thinking! If I knew mine would turn out as good as yours I'd do it right away! Thanks for the reminder.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Marty, you REALLY DO NOT look like you are 71 years old! What a cutie pie you are. Love the short hair cut. I don't think I've done a makeover since college!! It certainly is time that I did one! I sure hope mine turns out as great as yours, but I'm afraid they don't have as much to work with on me! I'm afraid the makeover artist will say to me: "I'm a beautitian, not a magician"!! laurie
