Eyeliner Tips For Aging Eyes
Applying eyeliner doesn’t need to take the whole day, but for sure, when you learn these eyeliner tips for aging eyes, you would realize how different it is to learn new ways to look cool and young.
Eye-Makeup Tips For Women Over 40
1.We do not want you to skip the use of eyeliner at all. It is because of the humble eyeliner or the kohl, your eyes look wider, brighter, fresher, lovelier and very beautiful. This is why, learning how to apply the eyeliner right and when in your 40s makes all the difference. They allow the eyes to pop out and look very open too.
2.What we would look at is to use more of browns and grays as eyeliner hues than the usual black. This is because the black pigments can be very sturdy and harsh on the skin tone and texture, enhancing the fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes- our aim is to have a softer look at the end of the day.
3.Begin with the shading of the outer corner of the eyes, giving two or three very light strokes. And then go inward which helps smudge the eyeliner well and allows the pigment to rest on the lash line.

4.When using your eyeliner, the strokes especially should be thin. Don’t make it any thicker than the lash line or thinner as well- it would look awkward and funny, especially if you have puffy under eyes or large eyes.
5.With the help of a reputed Q-tip, go right ahead and blend the eyeliner for the upper and lower lash line- culminate it in the corners of the outer eye to shape the lids.
6.You must line the lower lashes too, but avoid as much as possible touching the inner rims of the eyes or the lower lash line. The aim is to bring about a soft touch to the eyes and not a harsh rim.

1.When It comes to choosing your brow colour and considering you are in your 40s, you need to start with some filling in. We would look at coloured powders for the filling in, which work better than what a pencil for the eyebrows can do. Aim for fuller looking brows!
2.Sheer eye shadow for an everyday look is best to use. It is light in colour and blends naturally into the skin. You could look for camels, pinks, pale pinks or creams and off-whites too. These are shades that look bright and make the eyes a vibrant lot too. Don’t pick shimmer and shine, opting for matte shades would be the best thing to do.
3.Finally, do enhance the look with three strokes of invisible mascara and not the black ones!
