Angela Bassett is simply gorgeous. She’s in her 50s and doesn’t look at day over 35; maybe those kids are keeping her young.
At any rate, Angela just has two movies out for the summer—already released “Jumping the Broom”, and “The Green Lantern”, which is coming out on June 17.
Aside from her incredibly sculpted body, Ms. Bassett’s skin doesn’t show a sign of aging! She changes up her hair with regularity and always looks amazing.
I don’t know Angela’s tricks for maintaining her beauty, but there are a few tried and true rules for keeping it hot after 50.
Check out these 5 tips for skin care, hair care and makeup that will insure you maintain your beauty in your 50s and beyond. And if you are in your 30s – 40s, now is the time to put these simple rules into practice!
1. Less is more
Take a look at Angela Bassett’s makeup—it’s minimal, yet polished. Her skin is even, eyes are emphasized, brows are defined, cheeks have a flush of color and lips are glossed up. That’s all it takes! Lightweight foundation paired with creamy blush gives skin a fresh look.

2. Stay current
Angela has been around for a hot minute, but is she rocking the same style she did 10 or 20 years ago? No way. So take note, stay current, yet keep your look age appropriate.
3. Beautiful skin
Must have’s for skin over 50: sunscreen, moisturizer, exfoliators and anti-agers like retinol, vitamins and peptides.
