I’m not sure why, or maybe it’s just genetics, but I see more and more small veins on my eyelids. I’ve read as skin gets older the skin thins, and eyelids are skin, so…
I like to wear a Guava eye shadow from Laura Mercier. It’s a sheer, peachy kind of color that brightens my lids without a lot of color.
Of late, I’ve noticed that the veins are getting harder to cover, so I decided to revisit eye shadow primer. I had purchased “Linen” from LM, but I decided it made my eyelids too white pinkish and instead used it for my Halloween Zombie make up on my face! It was pretty scary!
Consulting another makeup artist at NM, she suggested I used the Wheat color-totally makes sense because it matches my complexion and covers the veins but doesn’t change the color of my lids. So, my eye shadow has a truer base to start from.
The older I get the less makeup I use on my eyes-seems like I spend more time camouflaging .
Maybe I should check out Dr. Tantisira’s fractional laser – I’ve talked to her before and her skin is flawless-no foundation whatsoever. She does a pre-regimen of sunscreen applied 3-times daily a month prior to procedure and in some cases a melanin-prohibiting cream.
I’m a late adopter in most things – I’m still using an iPhone 3GS – am I sliding into the future?
I wish I may, I wish I might, see flawless skin, smooth and tight!
