Trends Report: Eye Love Beauty - Age Appropriate Eye Makeup Application

When Mom told you to “act your age,” she left out the bit about not looking it. When it comes to eye makeup, there are some key tips to remember for dazzling eyes that don’t reveal how many candles decorate your cake.

Teens/20s. At this age you can really go out on a trendy limb: go for glittery shadows in bold colors and exotic color combinations. Keep it chic by passing on eyeliner and opt for a lash-lengthening mascara to frame the eye.

30s. Create a dramatic impact with a liquid liner applied to the upper lash line that extends to the outer corners in a delicate wing. Cream shadows are a good choice for a natural look, and for a little more pop, apply a bit of shimmer under the brow and at the inner corners.

40s/50s. Focus on your brows, which tend to get sparse with age. Apply a brow powder with a stiff, angled brush, using feather-like strokes for the most natural look. Use a pearly shadow below the brow bone to highlight.

60s plus. Creating a flawless eye starts with the right foundation – always use a primer to even out skin tone. Set with powder and line the upper lashes with a liquid liner, and top off with a waterproof mascara in your best shade.

I haven't even attempted the liquid liner, let along the delicate wing. I have a feeling it would not look like it's supposed to. But you've inspired me to at least go get help with it. :)
