Whether you’re heading out on a date, a girl’s night, or simply running errands, you want your makeup to look good. One key aspect of looking your best is to enhance and highlight your eyes. Unfortunately, our eye makeup needs change as we age because we add some delicate lines and tend to find ourselves with hooded lids. The trick to still making your eye makeup look good is to adapt and change to fit the new landscape.
If you’re planning to simply swipe on some mascara or want to go for a deep dramatic look, here are some of our favorite products to help you look your best. They say the eyes are the window to the soul – so add some fabulous window treatments and get out there!
Add a dash of color or some depth with eyeshadow. We’ve listed some of our favorites, from nudes to colorful palettes to fit the occasion. If your eye makeup tends to wear off as the day goes on, consider a 24-hour cream option. It can make a huge difference in how you look at the end of a long day.
Whether you prefer liquid or pencil, a quality eyeliner can help you add shape and contour to your eyes. Here are our top options in each category – with an additional waterproof option so you can wear your liner to the pool or beach without it washing off.
There are a ton of mascaras on the market, many promising to plump, lengthen, or thicken your lashes. What we’ve found is despite the quality of the mascara, the results really depend on your lashes and lifestyle. Still, these are our favorite options that should suit every purpose and need. My personal preference is Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara from Thrive Causemetics because it gives me thicker, fuller lashes.
We all want a little more brow power, and there are few better ways to do that than by using a brow pencil or applying a daily serum that will condition and strengthen your brows. Give yourself the curve and fullness that you desire with the swipe of a pencil – just watch out for that center section. Unibrows still aren’t in fashion.
If you woke up with dark circles under your eyes, cover them with a bit of concealer. Just a dab here or there and some clever blending, and you can make them disappear in a pinch. Some even do double duty to help your eye makeup last longer.
So there you have it, or favorite options in eye makeup for women over 60. If it’s time to update or upgrade your eye makeup game, this could be the perfect opportunity to get some quality new products.
