Eye Makeup Over 50

… and sometimes over 40.

Heavy eye makeup can make women look older, not younger. Dark colors and thick eyeliner draw attention to wrinkles and weigh down a face. Lighter colors can appear to give a lift to your face. Don’t believe me? Watch this…

Still not buying it? How about this…


I don’t wear much makeup. Most days, I don’t wear any at all because I work from home and don’t need to. If a video conference is scheduled, I might fill in some eyebrows and brush on a coat of mascara.

I do, however, take care of my skin. I use No7 Restore & Renew face cream day and night. I realize this collection is designated for age 60+, but early prevention never hurt anyone. I always remove makeup before going to bed, which is something I didn’t always do when I was younger. Not only is it good for my skin, but it’s also refreshing and relaxing.

Genetics play a role in the whole aging process, but so does taking care of your skin and yourself. Avoid the sun, don’t smoke, and try to relax and have fun.
