As we get a little older, we need to think carefully about the makeup techniques that we apply. This is especially true when it comes to eye makeup application, which is a delicate process at any age.
If you were to ask a group of women what part of their body they like the most, many of us would say that we love our eyes. There is something about the eyes that we find fascinating. They are more than just colorful globes. They are windows into our soul. At least, that’s how many of us think about them.

Like many women in our community, I still love wearing makeup. I don’t use anti-aging products to try to look younger. Instead, I use makeup for mature skin to highlight my best features. And, while I don’t want to look younger, I also don’t want to make myself look any older by using the makeup techniques that I learned as a teenager.
As older women, we have a pretty good idea how to apply our makeup. Well, at least we think we do! In a recent video, I discovered that I was making a number of small mistakes when it came to my makeup application.
Not so long ago, the only time when we needed to “pose” was when someone took a photo of us. Older women today interact with technology in so many ways. We talk with our grandchildren on Skype. We take part in family videos. We may be asked to participate in video job interviews. Other women, like me, record videos for our blogs.
Over the years, we have done all kinds of things to our eyebrows. We’ve shaved, plucked, waxed and threaded them. We survived the various “brow trends,” from super-thin to wild to full.
Now, in our 60s, we have a more balanced approach to makeup, but, we still want to look out best. This leaves many of us asking, “What’s next for our brows?” and “How can we create the look that we want, using the latest makeup techniques designed just for older women?”
What are the most visible changes that happen to your body as you get a little older? If you are like most people, you probably said, “wrinkles.” Or, you may have thought about the difficulty of keeping the extra pounds off after 60.
We affectionately call our wrinkles “laugh lines” or even “roadmaps of our lives.” Recently, it’s become popular to say that we should just accept our wrinkles as a natural part of aging.
As the founder of Sixty and Me, I am often asked to review or endorse anti-aging products of all kinds. So far, I haven’t found a single anti-aging product that I really believe in. Part of the reason is practical. I just don’t think that these products work “as advertised.”
