From this point on, I’m urging these women to think before they post
Founder of innovative, cult new makeup brand STUDIO | 10 taking UK by storm and described by India Knight, Sunday Times Style, as 'genius'. My ethos is about supporting other women to look, feel and achieve their very best, at any age!
You're in the ladies afterward and two women walk in - one of who is the CEO of the company you just pitched. "It was ok - well researched", one says. "Yes", agrees the other, "but I'm still set on the other team. I can see she knows her stuff, I just feel more comfortable with someone younger and fresher being in charge." You didn't get the account.

Because it's the truth. I, like everyone else you meet, don't see what you do in the mirror. You focus in on that one thing you dislike and think will make such a difference. I see your great skin, I see your quick humour in the lines around your eyes.

If a woman at 45 fears ageism, how should one at 65 feel? We all know that whilst compulsory retirement is no longer legal, there are other ways to undercut and undervalue a member of staff who is perceived to have outlived their purpose.

I love fashion. It might be considered a frippery to many but it's part of my identity, my passion and my time. Fashion matters and can make a real difference not only to how you look, but how you feel.

Right now, you're full of ambition - eager to make your mark on the world and start building the empires you've got planned in your head. You've worked hard, you've got great business instincts and are going to go far.

These stress levels are extremely familiar to me. I've lost track of the number of Christmases lost worrying about work in between cooking for the starving masses, wrapping presents, keeping everyone happy and ensuring everything looked picture-book-perfect for the stream of 'perfect family' essential insta-snap.

We bring our skills, our ideas, our creativity, our mentoring and our history. Studies show that older women bring a sense of rational to a table - we know when to take calculated risks and when to sit back. We're calmer and we're smarter.

Who decides when I'm too old? No-one, so mind your own business! Would you ever have surgery to hide how old you were, possibly to keep your job? Despite working in the beauty industry, it had never occurred to me that I might be judged on my abilities and effectiveness in doing my job based on my age.

As a makeup brand owner aimed at women 35 plus, I know our beauty needs change as we age, and so should our makeup in terms of ingredients, textures and shades that work better for maturing women.

It doesn't matter who you are, or where you are from, there is one common experience in life we all share. We will at some point face a feeling of failure. It might be losing a job, getting divorced, failing an exam or falling out with a friend but at one time or another we all have to face disappointment and find a way to recover from it.

I absolutely believe that the years both pre and post 50 are less now about the age of invisibility and more the time women step into their brilliance, free of so many of the anxieties that beset younger women.

It seems to me that we women have a problem. We *sharp intake of breath*...age. It's true. Despite all scientific research, none of us has yet found a way to stop the march of time, regardless of which potions, lotions and treatments may promise us otherwise.
