In fact, for adult women, there are no rules about what kind of eye makeup they should or should not wear. Cosmetics is a tool for self-expression, so you shouldn't limit yourself because of your age.

However, if the makeup you wore in your youth looks different after 40, then it's worth adjusting. Instyle shared the best tips on this.

Shimmering eyeshadow

Sparkles can focus too much attention on wrinkles and emphasize the structure of the skin, so makeup artists usually recommend that adult women avoid them. But the problem is not with the product itself, but with applying it too high above the eyelid crease.

Try adding shimmer to areas where the skin is fairly even, such as the center of the eyelid closer to the lashes, or use it as a light eyeliner.

Inner corner of the eye

Don't be afraid to emphasize the inner corner of the eye. This will instantly give your eyes a fresh look.

Experts recommend using shiny champagne-colored eyeshadow for this purpose.

Colors

If you want to make a classic smokey eye, it doesn't mean it has to be black. Do not limit yourself to colors, because the smoky effect can be done with any of them.

Makeup under the crease

If you use dark colors for eye makeup, apply them under the crease of the upper eyelid. Otherwise, they can emphasize age-related changes and visually add years to your face.

"Cat eye"

The essence of the trendy cat eye makeup is to stretch the eye to the temples with the help of shading and create a mysterious look. However, if you see age-related changes in your skin, you should start doing this more carefully. A color that protrudes too much beyond the eye area will draw attention to the texture of the face, so make the cat eye less elongated.

Balance

The key to harmonious makeup is balance. If you have made bright eye makeup, you should leave the rest of the face more restrained.
