Jamie Lee Curtis, Good Looks At Any Age

Updated on June 28, 2016

Once I reached the "over fifty" mark, I knew it was time to embrace the idea of aging gracefully. I like to share beauty and health tips.

Looking Young Naturally

I think Jamie Curtis is absolutely gorgeous. She has a look that is healthy, natural, and which any woman might want to emulate. Jamie Lee Curtis and I share something in common: we have some Hungarian ancestry.

With her athletic, yet feminine build, the gamin haircut has been the perfect foil for her, and it melds perfectly with her lively persona.

For those who want to borrow the style and look of this beautiful and magnetic star... read on....

Jamie's Style

Her Look, Her Hair, Her Makeup

"...a classic cut for Ms. Curtis. Jamie Lee's back and sides have been angle cut to create a messy, sexy look and her top section has been razor cut to add body and movement. This is an easy style to maintain with regular trims." -

Of her Pixie haircut one commenter said, "you need good bone structure and a bit of bravery, since there's no hair to hide behind" about choosing this style.

If you look at lots of pictures of her, it becomes apparent that her general style is to be very simple and striking in flattering cut clothing with usually one focal point of jewelry, fabulous earrings, or a stunning necklace. she often chooses silver metals with diamonds, but not always. The key is that with simple well fitting clothing and her short haircut the jewelry serves to highlight her face. It is a very effective look for an older woman.

One thing that is readily apparent about Jamie Lee Curtis is how fit and athletically slim she is. If you have rolls or extra pounds on your frame you can't wear her clothing styles. but you can use her sense of color and design for your overall look.

"Jamie Lee Curtis enhances her gray locks with soft, neutral makeup."

Beauty Tips for Women With Gray Hair

  • Adjust your makeup to gray or silver hair:
  • Choose cooler tones for eyes like pewter and lavender.
  • Choose warmer tones for cheeks and lips like golden pinks and apricots.
  • Choose a light shade of brow color and define the eyebrows.
  • Add extra sheen to your hair with finishing sprays that have glisteners, use mineral powder foundation with illumination for your skin.
  • No copper or orange shades of makeup- choose peachy instead.
  • Steer clear of dark lip colors, and make the lips look plump and juicy with shiny lipgloss.

A pomade gives hold and shine and is great for short gray hair like Curtis' pixie cut. I haven't seen what particular line of hair products she uses, but her stylist spilled about one that is both good for your hair and keeps a well groomed natural look like Jamie Lee's signature style.

Fabulous Makeup Products - Get the Look

To get Jamie Lee Curtis' flattering natural look, all luminous and bronzed, consider that she endorses "Sheercover Makeup".

Studying her photos, she almost always opts for a very natural look that includes pink lipstick, some blush, and accents her eyes with shadows and mascara, done with a light hand.

Glammed-up events occasionally break the rule, but rarely appear better than her signature look.

What Style And Aging Means To Her (And Oprah)

Aging Gracefully

Sometimes it really helps to have some guidance when entering a new phase of life, like becoming a mommy, re-entering the workforce, or any big and important, new phase of life. Aging is no different.

I liked the advice given in this book and the way it is presented. Maybe we have felt our best was behind us -looks wise, anyway, but the idea of "making a comeback" puts it in perspective. We just have to fine tune some things and polish up a bit... we are on our way to a new and exciting chapter of life.

Admiring Jamie Lee Curtis

Getting fit is a big part of the look

Getting fit is important to any woman's health, and the look of the simple form-following wardrobe that Jamie Lee Curtis wears hangs on a body that is not skinny, but certainly is not packing extra pounds. In recent years Curtis cut back on her favorite carbohydrates in breads, etc. to cut her weight for health reasons. Modifying your weight by losing extra pounds will reduce the blood pressure and the cholesterol readings. It also makes you look better in your clothes.

True confession: I'm writing this as motivation for myself- to eat healthier and see these results.

You like a Gap T-shirt, and then six months later you want the same one because the baby pukes all over you. And then they don't make it anymore. So I'm a replicant. When I know something I like, I just want to replicate it.

It's not over yet! We are just beginning to awaken to making the most of our beauty now. A mature beauty, yes, but it has its own attractiveness. Just as we see in celebrities like Jamie Lee Curtis!

What most helped me is advice on clothing. That is more of a challenge than hair or makeup for me. This book has it all covered, though. Chapters on each part of your look given in an encouraging, spirit uplifting way.


Freaky Friday - Jamie Lee Was Perfect For This Part

Fun and Freaky

Freaky Friday is my favorite Jamie Lee Curtis movie. Her great comedic talent really shines out.

Your Opinion on the Activia Ads

Activia Commercials

One of the ways you might have seen Jamie Lee Curtis is due to her involvement with representing the yogurt 'Activia' in TV commercials.

"A lot of celebrities do product endorsement. Curtis just stumbled into the big one. “I never in my life thought when I first was asked by this company, Activia, Dannon, to be their representative, I really don’t think it was just like, ‘Oh, it’s going to be a check, I’m going to do it.’ I really thought, ‘Okay, wait a minute. I’m going to go out and talk about bowel movements and about how people’s digestive tracts work. Some work better than others and why and blah blah blah and that this will help.’ I really thought, ‘Okay, is that going to be weird? I mean, is that going to be weird? You’re an actor, you’re a writer. Is that going to just be a weird thing.’ It has turned out to be the most fun thing.”"

What Are You Doing? - How Do You Feel About That?

How Jamie Lee describes our parenting now.... She is a funny, and articulate. person.

Try to discourage your loved ones from falling prey to this system of dissatisfaction. Men, honor your women and girls. Tell them that they are beautiful and show them that you mean it. Pattern your behavior so that young men can learn about what are and are not appropriate ways to talk about women. There are plenty of things to be anti about as a family. Let's try to stop aging as being one of them.

— Jamie Lee Curtis on The Huffington Post

Continuing To Grow

People know Jamie Lee Curtis as an actress, child of actors, and as a spokesperson for Activia on TV commercials, but she is also a children's book author.

Her books are best sellers.

I like celebrities who have more than one side to them, who have taken time to develop other talents.

Today I Feel Silly: And Other Moods That Make My Day
Today I Feel Silly: And Other Moods That Make My Day

She and her father helped finance the rebuilding of the "Great Synagogue" in Budapest, Hungary.

Everyone Has Role Models

Everyone has heroes, and the actress that Jamie Lee Curtis looked up to was Jessica Tandy. She was another fine actress who was well known for her great character roles and for aging well.

She acted well into her older years and wore her gray locks beautifully.

      1963, Palm Springs, CA. I was 19 and attending College of the Desert preparing for UCLA film school and operating my business, Swim Robert, a swim school teaching all aspects of how to swim and safety around the swimming pool. I was called one day and engaged to come to the Curtis home in Palm Springs to conduct swimming lessons for three young children, Jamie Lee Curtis, her sister and a friend of the family, young boy. After two weeks of intense work I was able to have all three of my young students easily swim the length of the pool and perform simple life-saving techniques, thus "waterproofing" all.

      Didn't know that. Just commented on your Helen Mirren lens. She is one of my role models for aging gracefully and Jamie Lee Curtis is the other. Thanks so much for the lens.

      Bravo for Jaime Lee Curtis, definitely a case of not getting older but better as she ages in health and apparent total well being....and doing it all so very well. She's also quite the children's book author.
