Best Eyeshadows for Aging Eyes: Insights from the Pros

As we age, our skin evolves, impacting how makeup looks and performs, especially around the eyes. Mature skin has unique needs and, thankfully, there are fantastic eyeshadow options to keep your eyes sparkling at any age.

Choosing the Right Eyeshadow for Aging Eyes

Celebrity makeup artists have long recommended specific types of eye shadows for mature skin, favoring formulas that address common concerns like dryness and fine lines. Creamy textured eyeshadows, like Blinc’s Eyeshadow Sticks, are best for aging eyes because of their hydrating properties. They help moisturize the delicate eyelid skin, smoothing out fine lines and preventing the crease that can come with age.

Blinc’s Eyeshadow Sticks are also cruelty-free, clean, and vegan, offering effortless application with a smudge-free finish. These eyeshadow sticks guarantee a foolproof application, whether you're defining, lining, or filling while delivering intense color that lasts all day.

Ideal Eyeshadow Colors for Older Women

For color choices, makeup artists suggest sticking to neutral shades for older skin as they naturally enhance the eyes without being too bold. Beiges, soft browns, and muted mauves flatter mature eyes and complement all skin tones. To add some warmth, consider using gentle peach or pink shades, particularly on the inner part of the eyelid to minimize any redness.

Blinc's The Rare Gem Palette features 12 gemstone-inspired shades, ranging from buttery-smooth matte finishes to glistening pearls and metallics. Each shade is highly pigmented and designed for effortless blending, making it ideal for mature skin. This palette is perfect for creating a variety of looks that enhance the natural beauty of mature eyes without overpowering them.

Eye Makeup Tips for a Youthful Look

To maximize the youthful effect of your eye makeup, here are a few tips from makeup professionals: 

  • Start with an Eye Primer: Applying an eye primer can create a smooth canvas, reducing the appearance of lines and preventing eyeshadow from creasing. Try Blinc’s Eyeshadow Primer, a Vegan and Organic translucent formula that lasts all day without creasing, fading, or smudging. It fills surface imperfections to create a seamless and blurred canvas that will intensify your shadows and liners. This lightweight, ultra-longwearing primer contains a blend of Pro-Age Peptides, Vitamin E, and Alaria Esculenta Extract that help improve your skin's firmness, elasticity, smoothness, and brightness.
  • Opt for Matte and Satin Finishes: Matte and satin finishes are more flattering on mature skin as they don’t emphasize fine lines like frosted or shimmering shadows can. 
  • Tightline with Eyeliner: Applying eyeliner to the upper waterline makes lashes appear thicker and eyes more defined, contributing to a youthful look.
  • Strategic Highlighting: Use a light, shimmery eyeshadow or highlighter on strategic areas. For smaller or closer-set eyes, apply it to the inner corners of the eyes and just under the brow bone making them appear larger and more awake. For larger eyes, highlight the outer corners to create the illusion of almond shaped eyes.

Using the right makeup products and techniques is crucial for gracefully enhancing mature skin, especially around the eyes. Blinc's The Rare Gem Palette and Eyeshadow Sticks provide the perfect blend of hydration, ease of application, while delivering vivid, lasting color, making them excellent choices for those dealing with delicate or aging skin.
