Cyndi Lauper Has Some Bold Beauty Advice For Older Women

Aging doesn't mean you have to compromise your style.

More than 30 years after she became a household name with her hit song -- you know the one -- Cyndi Lauper is still just a girl that wants to have fun ... and aging isn't going to get in her way. 

The 63-year-old has said she doesn't mind growing older as long as she still gets to "play." She recently chatted with Vogue to share some of her beauty tips, particularly for older women.

"A woman who is older doesn’t have to look like a grandmamma," Lauper told Vogue. "She can look elegant and not conservative."

Lauper's rule of thumb is to embrace color -- something she's clearly always done. Whether it's cotton candy pink, fiery red or platinum blonde, she is known for experimenting with bold hair color. 

Even so, for older women, she suggests trying softer colors. We're digging her current baby pink hue -- a look Helen Mirren has also rocked. 

When it comes to makeup, less is more, Lauper says. 

“You can do any style of makeup if you’re older, you just need to do it light. Too much makeup will make you look older," she said. 

But it's important to know your face and what works for you -- and not just follow the latest trends. (You can read more about some of our favorite anti-aging makeup tips here.)

And if you're having a bad hair day or just can't be bothered to style your mane -- tossing on a hat is the perfect way to add a touch of instant glamour. 

Time to step outside the box, ladies.
