Over 40 Beauty: Favorite Eye Products 2017

Continuing on with my favorite beauty products from this year, it’s time to discuss my fave eye products! I used at least two of these eye products every time I wore makeup. Whether it was an everyday work look, or an evening glam, these products took me through the days and nights with impeccable performance. And not only are these products versatile, they work perfectly for us women who are over the age 40 and don’t want to necessarily be limited by current beauty trends. These products provide us with a classy and sophisticated look without being too plain or too overly dramatic. Let’s begin…

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer

My favorite eyeshadow primer. I’ve been using this one for years and always find myself going back to it whenever I try something else. I ALWAYS wear an eyeshadow primer whenever I wear eye makeup. I recommend you do too, and you definitely can’t go wrong with this one.

Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palettes

Another favorite that I’ve been using for years. My favorite this year has definitely been the Naked Heat eyeshadow palette, but the classic palettes are my must haves as well. I think you can make all of the Naked palettes work so it really doesn’t matter which one you choose. But for us ladies who like natural and earthy tones, the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette is one you won’t wanna pass up!

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

It’s taken me years to find a concealer that works for me that doesn’t actually ENHANCE my dark undereye circles. This one is easy to use, covers great, and doesn’t take much to get the job done. It’s a little on the pricey side compared to anything found in the drugstore, but I promise you, it’s totally worth it.

Anastasia Brow Wiz

Brows have always been tricky for me. I do have brows, but getting them to look nice and even hasn’t always been my strong suit. When I finally tried the Anastasia Brow Wiz, doing my brows took on a whole new meaning. It was actually easy for me to make my brows look natural and full. The brow wiz lasted all day for me and never faded or sweated away.

Anastasia Brow Powder Duo

On those days when I wanted to do something a bit more dramatic with my brows, I reach for this brow powder. I use the color Ebony on this one and it works perfectly for my skintone and hair color. It’s super easy to use, doesn’t have that ashy or grayish tone like so many other brow powders and it doesn’t fade throughout the day. Make sure you get a good angled brush if you do decide to buy this.

Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara

This is by far, the fastest, easiest mascara I’ve ever used. It really does only take one coat to achieve thick, full looking lashes. It doesn’t flake, smudge or smear. I wear this every day to work and I have been asked on more than one occasion if I’m wearing fake lashes.

L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara

Another great mascara for more dramatic and bold looking lashes. I like this one for evening looks because the black is really, really black. It’s also a thicker, heavier mascara so it works well if you do plan to wear false lashes. Again, I’ve been using this for years and I always have a tube or two in my makeup bag.

So these are the eye products I’ve been loving throughout the year 2017. Many of these products I’ve used for awhile but they continue to bring me amazing results time and time again.
