When we age it gets a little bit harder to do eye make-up well. You might wear glasses, have hooded eyes or a few more wrinkles than you did 10-years ago, but this isn’t a bad thing – instead it is a change thing. What you need to do is to adjust what you have always done and pay more attention to choosing and using the right products, in the right way. So if you need a bit of help and you would like to know how to do a simple smokey eye, I recorded a video earlier today and popped it up on my @geriatric_mum instagram account.

My favourite pencil to achieve the simple eye look is this: Ariane Poole Gel Eyeliner Pencil in colour Brocade. It is easy to blend, the colour and intensity lasts a long time and this deep gold colour isn’t too dark. It is a total winner.
Top tip: always use an eyelash curler for a bright-eyed wide awake look. I used the Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler in the video. It is available in the UK if you shop around online.
That’s it for now. Hope you enjoy the video – give it a like if you do.
