As we age, we tend to lose eyelashes, so they start to look skimpy. Celebrity makeup artist Keira Karlin, who has worked in the entertainment industry for the last 20 years, offers these proven ways to achieve bat-able lashes.
"First, try a thickening mascara. My favorite is LashBlast by CoverGirl — your lashes look like falsies but are a lot more comfortable," says Karlin. "Another cult favorite is Dior Show -- but if you're looking to save some dough, L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black is virtually the same thing." Both LashBlast and Voluminous are about $8.00 in drugstores.
If using a thickening mascara still leaves you with wimpy, skimpy lashes, Karlin suggests a base coat or a lash primer underneath your mascara. "Lash primers can sometimes leave your lashes gloppy; my go-to primers are Dior and Kanebo," she says.
"Get rid of those undereye circles -- the ones that showed up when you first had kids and never got enough sleep," says Laura Kronen, image consultant and founder of Be You Only Better. "Cream concealer with a yellowish hue works for most people."
Use creamy lipstick, not matte. Matte lipstick doesn't have enough moisture content and settles into your lip lines, making them stand out. Avoid browns and red with orange undertones. Instead, stick to true/blue reds. Orange lipstick makes teeth look yellow, and brown lipstick can age you.
Switch from black to brown. If you have been using black eyeliner for years, it's time to switch to brown or brown/black. Jet-black liner is too harsh. Use a powder eyeliner or soft pencil rather than liquid.
Don't overpluck your eyebrows. The natural look is in, and as you age, your brows are less likely to grow back in form if you overpluck. Fill in sparse brows for more definition as necessary, but don't make them look drawn on.
