Eyes Look Refreshed and Younger in 30 Seconds

As we age, the skin around our eyes seems to darken, making us look older, but you can make your eyes look refreshed and younger in thirty-seconds with this easy eye tip.

After washing all the makeup from your eyes with eye makeup remover, apply a thin layer of yellow-based concealer from the lash line to the brow. Be sure to cover the dark area at the tip of the eye that rests next to the nose. It is important to not over-apply too much concealer, but don't under-apply either.

After the concealer has dried, dust your face with mineral powder foundation, including covering over the concealer. Again, don't go too heavy on the eyes.

A dusting of brown eyeshadow to the outer half of the eyelid up to the crease and a very thin line of eyeliner (and of course don't forget the mascara) and your eyes are ready for the day. Toss in blush and a natural colored gloss or lipstick and people will be wondering what you've done to look so refreshed.

If you are in your 50's, I hope you are not still wearing as much makeup as you did when you were younger. Unfortunately, too much eye makeup can make a woman over 50 actually look older!
