Learning how to apply eye makeup the right way when you're a woman over 40 can help enhance your eyes and even make them pop!
Isn't that what we want?
As we get older, eye makeup tips change.....And so should you..................
I'm not sure why, but I know that I cannot wear eye makeup the same way I did in my 20s and 30s...
The first thing I noticed once I hit my 40s is that the skin around the eyes (and especially eyelids) got very thin causing shows dark shadows - due to blood vessels - to show through. This always caused me to look a bit bluish or bruised.
A dramatic eye makeup look can make a world of difference in how you look and – more importantly - how you feel.
So I started to experiment with applying a small amount of concealer or foundation in the corners of the eyes and on the eyelids.
This not only helped the eyeshadow to adhere better, but helps smooth out skin tone.
Eye Makeup Tips Step 1 - Eyeliner
Eyeliner – One of the most defining eye makeup tips is apply an eyeliner – liquid or pencil – which ever you feel more comfortable with. Most women find a pencil eyeliner easier to work with, especially if you’re a beginner.
2 - If it’s hard to draw a straight line, try making short dash like strokes across your eye lash line.
3 - For a more dramatic eye makeup tip, try running the pencil across your lower lids too. Start by pulling your lower lid down a bit, and draw a line from the inner lower lid towards the outer part of the eye.
Eye Makeup Tips Step 2 - Eye shadow
2 - Sweep the shadow across the lid from the lash line up until the eye crease.
Eye Makeup Tips Step 3 - Mascara
2 - Apply the mascara by first running the mascara brush along your lash tips – starting from the inner of the eye – toward the outer eye. Then place the brush at the base of your lashes and wiggle back and forth while brushing upward. Let it dry and apply another coat.
3 - Afterward, you can use an old tooth brush or mascara comb to separate your lashes.
For an even more dramatic look, apply a shimmery shadow to the top portion of the eye - right under the eyebrow and in the inner corners of the eye.
Reapply another layer of eyeliner to the top and bottom eye lids. But this time, apply a thicker line and smudge with a Q-tip for a dramatic smokey eye makeup look.
