It's undoubtedly terrific to be in the mid-forties. A middle-aged woman has more self-confidence and power except for the unavoidable ageing process.
As we age, the skin stops collagen production and gradually loses elasticity. Unfortunately, this causes annoying skin issues such as wrinkles, dark circles, and fine lines. Sometimes it even causes the upper eyelids to fold over the eyelashes and lower eyelids.
Women over 45 are constantly battling an unstoppable battle to look beautiful, glowing, and younger.
Luckily it's possible to look gorgeous at any age by knowing how to apply eye makeup. Here are five tips that every middle-aged woman must know if they want to look sophisticated, beautiful, and awesome.
1. Black Eyeliner
If you're over 45, we recommend applying a simple black eyeliner in the top eyelid and a nude shade on the lower eyelid. The idea behind this technique is about creating a contrast to brighten your eyes.
Black eyeliner makes the whites of your eyes look brighter and your eye colour vivid and more apparent. Combining it with nude on the lower eyelids keeps eyes pure and youthful.
You can try TONYMOLY Back Gel Eyeliner Long Brush that comes in four colours: brown, latte brown, black, and pearl brown. This eyeliner allows control and precision. It's a last-long formula, so you don't need to reapply.
2. Use a Powder Eyeshadow
Using a powder eyeshadow, it's perfect for mature skin as it has a smoother texture. Powder eyeshadows diffuse fine lines around the eyes.
Other types of eyeshadows can sometimes emphasise ageing signs. That's why we prefer using a more shapeable texture like powder to define eyes.
When applying eyeshadows, it's vital to blend them perfectly to make sure the colour covers attractively, and the finish is silky.
We love ETUDE HOUSE Look At My Eyes New as it's easy to mix and match with different colours to achieve a long-lasting vivid expression. They offer twenty shades to choose from, from matte to satin finishes.
3. Apply Primer
Applying primer ensures eye makeup stays natural and lasts throughout the day. Please note that the eye area is highly delicate, so it's best to use a primer that provides hydration to prevent dryness.
It's also vital to use a concealer under your eyes to cover dark circles. Concealers are terrific for brightening the eyes and giving you a smooth texture.
Our top choice is THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++. This concealer provides excellent coverage, and it's the secret for a smooth skin complexion. It comes in five colours, so it's easier to find the one that best suits your skin tone.
You can also use THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF28 PA++ as an eye primer.
4. Use Warm Eyeshadow Colours
Women over 45 should choose warmer colours to define their eyes. It's best to avoid gray and cool brown shades as they usually make you look fatigued.
We recommend using vanilla or light coffee for lighter skin tones, such as ETUDE HOUSE Play Color Eyes Bake House. You can apply peach, orange, or golds like Orange Parade by MISSHA Triple Shadow for those with darker skin.
5. Create Contrast
One of the most effective ways to look younger is to create contrast between your eyelashes, eyebrows, lips, and cheeks.you can use an eyebrow pencil such as INNISFREE Auto Eyebrow Pencil to create fuller, defined eyebrows.
INNISFREE Auto Eyebrow Pencil comes in seven colours to define and fill your eyebrows to perfection. With so many colours to choose from, it's easier to darken up or lighter down your eyebrows to look beautiful.
We also recommend applying the ETUDE HOUSE Keep My Brows Fixer to hold your eyebrows in place.
The Keep My Brows Fixer allows your eyebrow makeup to last longer. It gives your eyes a radiant and natural look. You can use this brow fixer as a substitution for an eyebrow pencil.
Also, don't forget to curl and extend your eyelashes with ETUDE HOUSE Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara. This mascara is available in three colours: brown, plum burgundy, and black. It adds a natural curl to your eyelashes, making them fuller and well-defined.
Make sure to apply ETUDE HOUSE My Lash Serum to get healthier, stronger, and longer eyelashes. Use it daily as an eyelash treatment.
