It's been over three decades since Madonna took the music industry (and in turn, the world) by storm with her ohmygod-did-you-see-that?! style. From her "Like a Virgin" days to her most recent "Sticky and Sweet" tour, the international pop superstar is the ultimate fashion and beauty chameleon, who never stops reinventing herself.
And while at 53, (yes, she's really 53!), the Material Girl still pushes the envelope with her wardrobe, she's softened her hair and makeup and looks more stunning than ever. Here, her top five beauty cues for looking gorgeous at any age:
Embrace your quirks. While it's rumored that Madonna has had a slew of plastic surgery and other various procedures to enhance her appearance, she's never fixed the gap in her teeth. In fact, it was reported that she was irate when a magazine airbrushed it out on the cover.
Find the right hair color. Madonna has experimented with a slew of hair colors, but her current golden hue best suits her skin tone. Plus, it covers up her grays and makes her wrinkles less pronounced than a dark shade would.
Play up your best feature. To enhance her stunning blue eyes, the singer relies on false lashes and precise liner. And when she wears nude lipstick, it makes her eyes stand out even more.
Take care of your skin. Before every single makeup application, Madonna's longtime makeup artist, Gina Brooke, puts an iced Shu Uemura Depsea Moisture Replenishing mask on the star's face for fifteen minutes to hydrate, de-puff and prep her skin.
Stay in shape. The chiseled star, famous for her macrobiotic diet and intense workout regime, recently announced plans to open a Hard Candy gym in Mexico City and expand the franchise to more than ten locations worldwide.
