Avoid These 6 Eye Makeup Mistakes

Makeup can be a fantastic tool to not only boost your confidence, but help maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. As the years go by, makeup becomes more than just a routine; it becomes an ally in your quest to look younger and feel your best.
However, makeup can sometimes work against you, especially around your eyes. So, keep reading to learn how to avoid common eye makeup mistakes that may add years to your look. 


Mistake #1: Too Much Dark Eyeliner


In your makeup past, you might have used eyeliner to give yourself a more mature look. But as you age and aim for a younger appearance, it's a good idea to go easy on the eyeliner, particularly black. Using too much black eyeliner can make your eyes seem harsh, especially when you're using lighter eyeshadows.
Instead, choose an eyeliner like Blinc's Eyeliner Pencil in a soft brown shade, applying it lightly along your upper lid. This eyeliner is ultra long-wearing and waterproof so it can't smudge, fade or run, like other eyeliners, making you look older.
Its Clean and Vegan formula is also infused with hydrating Vitamin E and anti-inflammatory Chamomilla Recutita, both nourishing and gentle on the delicate skin around the eyes. The creamy texture makes it easy to layer and blend before drying to a lovely matte finish. The idea here is to define your eyes in a subtle way, without the harshness of heavy, dark eyeliner.

Mistake #2: Overdrawn Eyebrows


Your eyebrows play a crucial role in shaping your face, and as you age, they require a little more attention. First, avoid overdrawing them and embrace your natural shape to avoid harsh lines. Second, choose a product like Blinc's Eyebrow Mousse for a natural youthful look. This versatile formula not only adds a natural touch of color to your brows but also helps shape and nourish them. The result? Soft, non-brittle brows that look fantastic. With six available shades, stick close to your natural brow color, or go a tad darker. It's light, Vegan formula can’t fade, run, or smudge even with sweat, oily skin, and harsh weather. It's infused with peptides and natural vitamins A and E, providing a range of anti-aging advantages that improve skin elasticity. Clinical studies have revealed a 53% boost in skin moisture within a single week and a remarkable 67% reduction in fine lines after six weeks of consistent use. In a nutshell, it's a fantastic solution that easily fills in sparse areas, adds volume, and keeps brow hairs in place. No more harsh lines, just a more youthful and naturally beautiful you. 



Mistake #3: Not Enough Mascara on Outer Lashes


For a more youthful appearance and natural look when applying mascara, pay special attention to your outer lashes. Opt for a mascara like Blinc's Tubing Mascara, that uses innovative tubing technology, created by Blinc over 3 decades ago. This formula is not an oil-based paint like traditional mascara. Instead it wraps each lash in tiny, water-resistant "tubes". Tubing mascara is ultra-longwearing, and can't smudge, clump, or flake, even when faced with sweat, tears, eye rubbing, or oily skin. To apply mascara to your outer lashes, start at the lash line of your upper lashes, then sweep the mascara wand upwards and outwards towards the outer corner of your eye. Focus on your outer lashes to create a lifting effect, making your eyes appear wider and more open. Blinc's Tubing Mascara is ideal for this technique; it elongates and defines the outer lashes beautifully, and is easily removed with just warm water and gentle pressure, without harsh rubbing or eye makeup removers. This leaves no residue or racoon eyes , which can add years to your look As for your lower lashes, eye careful, as excess mascara here can cast shadows and accentuate fine lines and wrinkles. Instead, use a small eyeshadow brush to gently dab a soft shade of brown eyeshadow on the lower lashes. By focusing on your upper outer lashes and going light on the lower ones, you'll get a refreshed and more youthful look.

Mistake #4: Uncurled Lashes


Curling your lashes is a simple yet highly effective technique to instantly lift your lashes and open your eyes. For this, choose Blinc's Heated Eyelash Curler. Unlike regular clamp-style curlers, this curler gently shapes your lashes using a controlled heat setting. This not only gives a longer-lasting curl but also eliminates the risk of crimping your lashes, a common mishap with conventional curlers. By precisely targeting the lashes and providing a gentle, upward curl, Blinc's Heated Eyelash Curler helps create the illusion of bigger, more youthful eyes. Remember to curl your lashes before applying your mascara for best results.

Mistake #5: Heavy Eyeshadow


Steer clear of heavy, dark, smoky eye looks that can add years to your face. Instead, go for neutral eyeshadow shades and choose soft shimmers that add a touch of radiance. Choose Blinc’s latest Eyeshadow Sticks for smudge-free, water-resistant eyes in a single swipe. Its creamy texture allows ample time to blend, line, fill, and define, ensuring a subtle and elegant finish.


Mistake #6: Concealer Overload


Concealer is a magical tool, but too much can accentuate fine lines. Match your concealer to your skin undertones, and make sure it's slightly lighter than your foundation. Use a brush and apply a light layer in an upward angle starting beneath the outer corner of your eye and ending at your brow's tail. Blend well for an instant, youthful lift. Embracing the signs of aging is a journey when you have the power of makeup to help you look as youthful as you feel. Choosing the right makeup products that enhances your features without aging you prematurely is the key.
