#1 Use hydrating foundation
One of the biggest problem plaguing the eye area is having foundation settle into the lines and emphasizing them. The best way is to use a hydrating eye cream to moisturise, followed by a primer to smooth out lines. Using a hydrating foundation also aids in moiturising the delicate eye area.
#2 Groom those arches
As we age, eyebrows can become sparse and end up having a dropping effect, which makes the eyes appear smaller as well. Filling them in can give the illusion of youthfulness, which is why Korean straight brows are so popular. Using highlighting powder on the brow bone can help the brows look more lifted too.
#3 Line with eye shadow
If you’re still a novice with eyeliners, try lining eyes with eye shadow instead. It creates a softer look which is less harsh and looks better on ageing eyes. The line should be heavier and thicker on the upper lash line and softer on the lower lash line. If possible, try not to line all the way on the lower lash line, concentrating the intensity on just the outer corners of the eye.
#4 Apply eye shadow on the outer crease
Create the illusion of bigger, wider eyes by concentrating the colour on the outer corners of the eye. Keep the colours simple, ideally sticking to neutrals and browns to keep the look soft. Ageing eyes tend to have a lot of creases and lines on the lids itself, and it’s really not necessary to cover the entire eye lid with eye shadow as they might settle into the wrinkles, emphasizing them instead. Remember to put on eye shadow primer to smooth out fine lines.
