Wellness Wednesday: How to Look (and Feel) Your Best

(Posted May 19, 2021)

On the evening of May 19, our chapter hosted a 90- minute presentation featuring professional makeup artist Elise Marquam-Jahns who specializes in helping women 50+ look on the outside how they feel on the inside.  Thirty-one women from our chapter as well as from other chapters across the country attended.  

Since many of us have adopted a more casual, minimalist approach to fashion and makeup during the past year, Elise shared with us how to take our makeup look “up a notch” by focusing on four research-proven makeup techniques that help those of us over 50 look our best.  Following her presentation, she answered many questions about makeup techniques, products and tools and removed the makeup on one side of her face to demonstrate the dramatic difference that using these four techniques can make.

To learn about the makeup techniques, products and tools Elise shared and other techniques and tips which can work best for us now, check out her weekly Thursday videos on her YouTube channel (Boomer and Beyond Beauty with Elise) as well as her Facebook page and website.  And if you’d like to be added to her weekly mini-newsletter list, contact her at
