Help mom look her best on your wedding day—Christopher Hopkins tells us about a few of the fabulous mom makeovers featured in his book Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45.

Cheryl, age: 61

Her beauty roadblock: "Cheryl is age-inappropriate. Her hair is way too long, and she was looking too sexy for her age. She needs to warm up her hair and shorten it to look much more youthful. As far as technical challenge, her hair color, the blue shadow and liner and pink lipstick are wrong and looked dated."

Hair fix: "We shortened the length, brought it off her face and added warm highlights."

Makeup fix: "We added warm makeup so that the focus would be more soft and monochromatic and not so contrasting to her skin. Softer lips, more focus on the eyes. We also groomed her brows."

Her wedding day look:" Just like this—she looks like she is ready for a wedding to me."
