God, I love Cindy Crawford. She was one of those amazing 1990s supermodels who actually dared to sport a little muscle on her bones, you know? Cindy always had a realistic figure and a girl-next-door-squared type of appeal, and she’s now 46 years old and still getting work, which is fairly unheard of as far as modelling is concerned. Of course, it’s very painful to remember how Cindy looked back in March when she’d done some tweaking; that is, Cindy had either indulged in an eye lift or some very aggressive Botox possibly combined with some eyelid surgery or fillers. As CB stated as well, Botox and fillers can have the paradoxical effect of making one look older, which is clearly the opposite of what one intends when consulting a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Now Cindy is, um, ignoring that little hiccup, and she’s talking out about how makeup is something to avoid because it ages the face. She sort of has a point, and the Mail points towards these photos of evidence that Cindy’s theory works, but they forgot that she’s wearing sunglasses in these photos. I’m including some pictures of Cindy without sunglasses at the bottom of this post, but here’s what she had to say about aging:
As one of the world’s top models Cindy Crawford was used to wearing a thick face of makeup. And you might expect that as she aged she’d continue to plaster it on.
But the supermodel has revealed that she has in fact cut back on her use of war paint – and believes too much ages the face, “As I’ve gotten older I wear less makeup. It can make you look older, and hopefully we get more comfortable in our skin.”
She proved that point on Tuesday while out and about in Southern California’s most affluent city on Tuesday. The supermodel-turned-designer, 46, was casually chic in blue blouse, gray jeans and strappy heels, dark shades, tan purse and windblown hair completing her fashionable look. She wore minimal makeup, but she doesn’t really need it with that natural, earthy beauty.
Married 14 years to nightclub owner Rande Gerber, 50, and mother to two beautiful children, Kaia, 11, and Presley, 13, the world is Cindy’s catwalk.

I would agree that, in general, less makeup makes one look younger. One of my beauty habits is to only wear makeup (with the exception of some subtle eyeliner, which is rather indispensible but not in a Kate Middleton capacity) to a very important function or, say, out to dinner. People usually tell me that I look 25 years old without makeup, but — let’s face it — they’re full of crap since I’m 37 years old. At the same time, I don’t really mind hearing such ridiculous things. Hey, I can be vain too! So Cindy does have a point, but I find it rather unfortunate that Cindy is talking about feeling “more comfortable in our skin” when she’s clearly had some work done. Not that I can knock Cindy by any stretch — her fortune has always been her face, and it’s unfortunate that she felt the need to change her looks to keep up with the modelling industry when, obviously, she looked better before the work was done.
Here’s Cindy going (relatively) make-up free in Los Angeles on 9/11. She looks slightly less tweaked than she did last March, but she’s still not the same Cindy that she used to be.
