The perfect natural makeup look is more about enhancing your best features. You don’t need a lot of different makeup products to achieve natural youthful look. As a matter of fact, natural makeup only requires the basics. Let’s start with the eyes. One of the first facial features that show skin aging is the eye area. If you are currently struggling on how to perfectly apply your eye makeup over the wrinkles and fine lines around your eye area, you are definitely going to find this article helpful. Keep on reading to know how to perfectly achieve natural eye makeup for mature skin.
Begin with prepping and hydrating your skin.
As mature skin tends to get a lot drier, applying a good moisturizer prior to makeup is very important. According to Dr. Farid Mostamand, founder of Ageless Derma, “Moisturizer is vital for your face and your body to ensure that the skin is constantly nourished and replenished. Left unattended, dry skin can become itchy, irritated, and red.” Applying makeup over dry skin would only accentuate your wrinkles. In order to prevent this, use a deeply-hydrating moisturizer. Let it set for around 5 minutes before proceeding to applying eye makeup.
Go for neutral shades that complement your skin tone.
Neutral shades that go well with your natural skin tone will make your eyes look brighter and more youthful. Shades like brown, bronze and taupe are neutral colors that are very easy to work with. If you find it difficult to mix and match colors, purchase eyeshadow pots or palettes that come in duos or trios.
Use budge-proof eyeliner.
Look for indications like “long-lasting”, “longwear”, “waterproof” or “smudgeproof” when picking up an eyeliner. Low-quality eyeliners easily smear and it would greatly affect your natural makeup look.
Groom and define your brows.
Be careful not to draw your brows harshly. If your brows are naturally bushy and shaped, just groom it and follow its natural shape using an eyebrow pencil. On the other hand, if your eyebrows are thin and sparse, use light and gentle strokes when applying your eyebrow pencil.
Don’t forget to highlight your brow bone.
Highlighting your brow bone using a light shimmery eyeshadow will give your features a natural lift. It will accentuate your bone structure and therefore draw attention away from your wrinkles.
