Tricia Cusden - enjoying a third, fabulous act in life

Living longer and healthier means embracing a third chapter in life as “fabulously” as possible, says Tricia Cusden, a former management training consultant who has built a successful new business, in her late 60s.

When she and her daughters sat down for dinner in Los Angeles last week, they had to pinch themselves, after realizing they were living Tricia’s dream. Five years ago, instead of retiring, she launched Look Fabulous Forever, a makeup brand designed for women aged over-55.

It has grown into a multi-million pound family business, with millions of YouTube views for makeup tutorials. Promoting Tricia’s product range in Hollywood is a surreal highpoint in the London businesswoman’s inspiring journey.

She is also the author of Living the Life More Fabulous: Beauty, Style and Empowerment for Older Women In this LLAMA podcast interview Tricia explains her belief that we should “go into a period of renaissance rather than retirement,” and feel younger as we explore new adventures, later in life.
