Kathy Hilton is a perfect example of mature smokey eyes.
Sexy Smokey Eyes
No matter how many candles you blew out on your last birthday cake, every woman deserves to love the way she looks.
And your beauty choices should not be dictated by the number on your driver’s license – so with just a few little hints and tricks, you’ll be able to rock your very own super sexy smokey eye.
There are no hard and fast, ironclad rules for beauty, but I do need to give you one gentle suggestion.
It is to go easy on eyeshadows that are full of glitter and shimmer, as it tends toward fallout and shines a bit of a spotlight on even the teeniest little wrinkle.
If you do have a sparkle addiction, try to keep the shimmer to a minimum and focus it largely in the crease of the eye.
Smokey eye makeup does not necessarily have to be black or even particularly dark.
In fact, softer shades like plums and olive greens, or dark browns and charcoals may prove to be more flattering to a variety of faces.
Hydrating the skin is key at any age, but especially important for gals over forty, even if skin still leans toward shininess.
Moisturize skin morning and night, and definitely don’t skip on the eye cream.
Do allow a few minutes between moisturizing and makeup application if possible, as cosmetics go on more smoothly when lotion has had time to sink in to the skin.
