Beauty advice is one of those things that's only as good as the person dishing it out. Is it interesting to hear a dewy-faced twentysomething model explain her skin-care routine? Sure. But, are we more likely to take notes when an equally dewy-faced fortysomething woman starts talking beauty? You'd better believe it.
To get that kind of first-person, proof-is-in-the-pudding advice, we called on some of the DMV's most stunning women, all of whom are in their forties or older. From a top dermatologist to a Beyoncé doppelgänger, these ladies know what's up when comes to their skin, hair, and makeup routines.

You won't regret it.
