I learned quite a bit watching this tutorial video on how a mature woman can use her makeup to look younger (or older – Yikes!).
Use Eye Primer
Eye primer helps prevent caking and creasing. Two Faced
The primer should also make your shadow pop.
Eye Shadow Colors
Using a lighter eye shadow color on the lid makes your eyes look bigger while using a dark color, makes them smaller.
Save the darker color for the crease and lid.
Using an empty magnetic eye shadow holder, you can create your own favorite palette and keep it all in one place.
Also suggested with this video is Nars NARSissist 12 Hour high pigment shadow palette.
Eye Liner Should Kick Up
Instead of following the natural eye line, with mature eyes we should kick up at the end.
