Makeup for deep set older eyes is different than other eye shapes. Without the right makeup, the deep set will accentuate their “older” appearance. Here’s how to camouflage those deep set eyes.
If you have deep-set eyes, you know that sometimes it can feel like the world is conspiring against you. The shadows under your eyes are almost too much for makeup to handle, and even if you manage to get a good base, it’s hard to find colors that won’t end up looking muddy or dull.
But don’t worry—we’ve got some tips for how to make the most of your makeup routine when you have deep set older eyes!
First off, the best thing you can do is go with a foundation that’s very light and sheer. This will help prevent any buildup in the creases that are already there naturally and allow for easy blending of other colors on top of it.
Next up: bronzer! Bronzer is great because it adds warmth to your skin tone without being too dark or heavy; just apply it lightly along the perimeter of your face with a fluffy brush, then blend it out toward your temples.
And finally: mascara! This one might be tricky because if you have really thick lashes (like yours truly here), then you’ll want something that won’t weigh them down too much or cause them to stick together when they’re wet—in other words
Makeup for deep set older eyes
Older skin does, lamentably, have a tendency to sag, and this can make our eyes appear smaller and more deep set like Angie’s. However, by blending a matte eye shade – and adding a brightening touch of lid colour – you can open them up beautifully. Deep set eyes can also cast more of a shadow, so adding concealer under the eye can help.
To address deep set eyes, our makeup artist recommends
1. Defining brows with Bring Back Brow Shape
2. Applying eyeshadow in a mid-tone to the lid area
3. Applying eyeshadow in a light-tone into the socket line and outer corners of your eye
4. Applying eyeshadow in a darker mid-tone on the top and bottom lash line
5. Dotting Sheer Brilliance Lid Colour on the brow bones for luminance
5. Finishing the look by applying mascara
