10. Do your brow tails
Last but not least is the finishing touch that makes any eye makeup look better: brows. “Most women in their 50s, 60s and 70s are missing brow tails or have very sparse outer brows,” Linter says. “For everyday you don’t need to fuss, just finish your brow by extending it outwards to stretch the shape and lift your eyes. It expands the look of your entire eye area and makes you look groomed. I like a firm, fine-tipped pencil like the Surratt Expressioniste Brow Pencil ($40, nordstrom.com) rather than creamy pencils, gels or powders, which tend to smear, smudge, look hard or disappear. Look for a narrow-tipped pencil that allows you to apply realistic hair-like strokes.” Other smart choices are the Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil ($9, target.com) and NYX Professional Makeup Microbrow Pencil ($11, target.com).
