When it comes to beauty, moms and grandmas, like our friends at the Greenwich House Senior Center in Manhattan, know best. From the advice they received from their mothers to the secrets they pass on to their daughters, these nuggets of wisdom have been tested time and again—and again and again. In our very special Beauty Week video above, these gorgeous ladies let us in on their everyday beauty regimes, kooky old-wives tales, and a DIY fake eyelash trick that trumps anything we've yet seen from Lady Gaga. We hope you're as charmed by these matrons of beauty as we were.
