Quick Eye Makeup Look for Women Over 50

5 Materials
2 Minutes

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you a super simple eye makeup routine for ladies over 50.

If you’re in a rush in the morning or you simply don’t want to spend a long time on your makeup, this routine is perfect for you as it only takes a maximum of two minutes of your time.

The products I'm using today are from the Look Fabulous Forever range, made specifically for mature skin. However, you can achieve the same results with any brand of product.

Tools and materials:

  • Primer
  • Eyeshadow
  • Thin brush
  • Eyeliner
  • Mascara
Applying primer

1. Primer

Start by priming your lids. This will create a nice even surface to apply the eyeshadow.

Applying eyeshadow

2. Light eyeshadow

Now add a light brown shade of eyeshadow.

Pick up some of the dark brown shade of eyeshadow on a thin brush and draw a thin line at the bottom of your lids.

Also, apply some eyeshadow to your waterline to frame your eyes and add some smokiness.

5. Eyeliner

Next, line your eyes with eyeliner.

6. Mascara

The last step is to accentuate your eyes with mascara.

Here is the finished makeup look. I love how my eyes are nicely framed with the mascara and the eyeshadow.

The two shades of brown eyeshadow are gorgeous neutral colors that compliment my natural skin tone.

    You got it girl! It is how I have been doing my eye makeup for about 50 years... I am 78! It is a classic method that works well on all ages. It is a "less is more" approach that most men prefer over a overdone makep look on women of all ages!
