Hi ladies! Today I’m sharing some eye makeup tips for women over 40. Makeup, as we age, is always an evolving process, and I love experimenting with different products.
It’s best to think less is more as we age and to create a soft look, never harsh.
Here are my eye makeup tips for women over 40:
1. Magnifying Mirror
I’ve talked about using a magnifying mirror for a long time; also, make sure you have plenty of light.
2. Use a good concealer.
Next is to make sure you use a good concealer. I have dark circles, so I want to cover those up as much as possible.
Another concealer I like is Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer.
3. Always Prime your eyelids.
A primer will smooth and correct the color of your lids, making them look younger. Primer also prevents creasing and will make your eyeshadow last longer. It’s great to wear all by itself when you don’t want to wear eyeshadow to brighten your eyelids.
I recently purchased this primer and can’t wait to try it.
4. Use matte or satin eyeshadow.
As we age, we have more lines and wrinkles, and too much sparkle in our eyeshadow can accentuate those lines and wrinkles. It doesn’t mean you can wear sparkles, but it’s best not to overdo it. I’ve been using this eyeshadow palette lately.
5. Bump up your brow game.
We’ve talked about this many times, but brows are a game-changer. Gone are the days of plucking our eyebrows; we now know we NEED our eyebrows. I shared my microblading experience HERE.
To make your eyes stand out, you need to pay attention to your brows—they frame your face. I use the tinkle razers to get rid of any stray eyebrows. It’s pain-free (no more waxing!). I’m also using neuLASH neuBROW Brow Serum.
6. Use an eyelash serum to help grow your lashes.
There are all kinds of lash serums, and I’ve shared some different serums at various price points. I’m using the neuLash Lash Serum.
7. Use eyeliner but don’t overdo it.
I typically use dark brown or black eyeliner and tightline my upper lashline.
Some experts say you don’t put anything on your lower lash line, but I use a brown eyeshadow and line just under my lower lashes and then smudge it. Then, I follow with mascara.
8. Use Mascara
Mascara makes our eyes pop, and there are plenty of good mascaras to help lengthen and volumize our lashes.
