About the Author

Lois Joy Johnson


As a top beauty and style editor with over twenty five years of makeover and photo shoot experience I'm not taken in by trends, gimmicks and hype.Maybe it's because I've worked hands-on for over a decade with thousands of real-life readers, A-list models and celebs over 40 as one of MORE magazine's founding editors and its beauty and fashion editorial director from 1997 to 2008. I know how women feel about age as their faces and bodies change and their lifestyles, finances, work, relationships, tastes and interests continue to evolve. My beauty book THE MAKEUP WAKEUP( co-authored with makeup artist Sandy Linter) and my fashion sequel THE WARDROBE WAKEUP were inspired by the millions of magazine and online readers who shared their concerns and the behind-the-scenes experts who shared their secrets.
Like you, I live a real everyday un-star-like life ( with a few diva moments thrown in to keep things lively) as a wife, mom of two amazing adult daughters and a Yorkie Poo Louie and that's just fine with me.Check my weekly beauty and style column on AARP.org for more straight talk!
