With age, the Makeup for eyes becomes more and more difficult: the overhanging eyelid interferes, it is not clear how to hide the swelling. Some women try to follow the trends and repeat the makeup that they saw on the catwalk. However, the problem is that life hacks for young people do not always work after 50. Quite by chance, we can emphasize our shortcomings, we just need to put the color in the wrong place or completely forget about it. So, there are 2 main mistakes that make eye makeup age.
Mistake 1 - the lower eyelid is brighter than the upper
It is very important to focus on the lower eyelid. Fashionistas emphasize it with eyeliner or neon colors, add sparkles and additionally color eyelashes. As a result, the look turns out to be very spectacular, and young is at hand.
When we get older, the skin loses its elasticity. On the eyes there are folds in the form of an impending century. The view is narrowed, and it would be necessary to "open it". However, many women exacerbate the situation, emphasizing the lower eyelid. The eyes become even smaller, and all age-related changes can be seen with the naked eye.
Mistake 2 - the fold of the upper eyelid is not worked out
After 50, you can’t just apply monochrome shadows. Only complicated makeup! Otherwise, the eyes will “be lost” on the face.
The main rule to deal with the impending century is dimming. We remove the fold of the upper eyelid into the shade. It is also advisable to walk in dark color along the interciliary line and the outer corner of the eye. Light need to emphasize the bullseye and inner corner.
