When your skin is dry, fine lines are more noticeable and your makeup is more likely to move or cake. Prep your lids for shadow with a corrective primer (which covers tiny veins and age spots).
Choose the Right Concealer

Pick a yellow-based formula that's a shade lighter than your foundation. First apply eye cream to any dry spots. Then, with your ring finger or a small brush, dab concealer on the inner corners and along undereye circles to about mid-eye. Gently blend.

Warning: Bright colors, heavy metallic, and glittery shadows broadcast wrinkles. Stick to subtle earth tones (think cream, pale gold, and champagne) to brighten your lids. "Mattes are always a safe bet, but fine shimmer shadows also add a youthful sheen," says Bass.

Line the Lids

Wiggle a rich brown (or jewel-tone) pencil between the roots of your lashes to help with thinning. "It creates the appearance of thicker, fuller fringe," says Bass.

Make your eyes look more open and awake (and counteract any sagging) by gently pumping your lashes a few times with an eyelash curler. Then apply two or three coats of a rich black mascara.
Groom Your Brows

Thin arches look too severe, so you need a brow pencil to add back fullness and give your eyes the illusion of lift. Pick a color that's one shade lighter than your hair color and fill in sparse areas using gentle, feathery strokes.
