My Bourjois Eyeshadow Secret and Other Makeup for Older Women Tips

Like many older women, I sometimes have trouble getting my makeup to play well with my glasses. In this video, I’d like to share a special product that I have found that really helps to make my eyes pop. I usually apply it in a special way, which I will get into in a second.

Moving from a Daytime Look to a Nighttime Look

I’m not super fussy with my makeup. If I’m just going around town, I usually apply a neutral tone. But, if I want to go out in the evening and make more of an impact, I need a liner.

The only problem is that I’m not super steady when it comes to using an eyeliner. So, I’m always on the lookout for easy to apply alternatives. Today, I’d like to share one of my favorites.

Using Bourjois Eyeshadow in a New Way

You may already be familiar with the Bourjois line of eye makeup products. They’ve pretty easy to get a hold of these days.


Now, in my opinion, one of the most unique aspects of their eyeshadow products are the brushes. They probably intended these to be used to apply eyeshadow to the entire lid. But, in my case, I use them as a liner. This gives me much more confidence than using a gel pencil.

In this video, I’ll give you a quick demonstration of how I use the brush to apply the eyeshadow right along the lash line. It really makes your eyes pop!

Getting back to my original point, using this technique allows you to create a sophisticated look that goes well with glasses. When you watch the video, I think you’ll see what I mean.

What do you think of this technique? What are your favorite eye makeup products and how do you apply them? What is your favorite color eyeshadow? Please join the conversation.
