When you pick a glitter eyeshadow, it inevitably draws attention to the fine lines and wrinkles, and no one wants that. Matte eyeshadows may be a little difficult to apply on mature skin, but with the help of a primer and the right tools, you’ll notice how stunning matte eyeshadows look on your eyes.

 

Use waterproof liner more often

Use an eyeliner to define your eyes. While it is best to avoid to kajal (it makes your eyes appear smaller and enhances the appearance of shadows under your eyes), we recommend you use a soft eyeliner pencil to tight line your eyes. This will give the illusion of fuller eyelashes and take away years from your face.
