What's the best eyeliner for older wrinkled eyelids
by Anita G.
best eyeliner for aging mature eyelids
I'm over 50 and have noticed little tiny wrinkles on my upper and lower eyelids.
Just like you, I love to wear eyeliner, but it just doesn't seem to look as good as it used too and I think part of it is due to the wrinkles around my eyelids.
Plus, I just don't think I look the same with eyeliner anymore and that makes me sad because that is all the makeup I ever wear. Without eyeliner, I look like I'm ill and my eyes just fade away.
Any suggestions on the best type of eyeliner makeup for mature aging eyes?
Editor's Note: Hi Anita and thanks for your question regarding eyeliners for wrinkled eyelids. This is a very common problem for women over 40 or so.
The problem I found was that while thicker crayon type eyeliners go on much smoother than waxy pencils (and fill-in those little skips in between the wrinkles of the eyelids) they tend to wear away half way through the day.
And, if you apply a heavier layer in hopes that it will last longer, then it looks a little too dressy for daytime look.
I always aim for a natural, but yet defined eyeliner makeup look. I want people to notice my eyes, not my makeup!
I recently started experimenting with gel eyeliners and have to say, I'm pretty impressed.
I've been a fan of Maybelline eyeliner pencil for over 40 years. But lately, I've noticed that it tends to skips over those little wrinkles on the upper eyelids leaving little white dashes.
So after some experimenting, I found a nice creamy gel eyeliner that gives me the same natural look without skipping (filling in those tiny wrinkles) and I don't have to keep re-apply it during the middle of the day.
