Subtle, Defined, and Opened Eye Look for the Mature Wise Eyes

Eyeshadow application becomes a bit puzzling when one becomes a mature and wise woman.  The muscular structure around the eyes isn't as defined as they used to be, and the skin texture is not as smooth.  Yet, beauty of the eyes is more defined by the years lived.  This is where eyeshadow should just enhance those wise and wonderful eyes.

A Modernized 60's Eye Makeup Tutorial

*Just a tutorial.  Eyelashes were PR samples.*

You may have noticed I am revamping some of my tutorials.  I won't delete the previous ones, although they do show the pictorial history of my posts which at times are embarrassing to me.  But, hey, everyone learns and I just choose to keep them up and just allow people to laugh and shake their heads in disdain.  I see this blog as my scrapbook of makeup looks and my brain trying to understand makeup application.  Anyway…this 1960's eye look is highly exaggerated and slightly more complicated than the others.  This one has a few tricks and tips for application, so read carefully and practice.

How to Apply Winged Eyeliner on Asian Monolids

*Nothing to disclose.*

Sometimes the most beautiful way to enhance Asian eyes is to just keep them simple.  After all, when everyone is wearing a full face of makeup emphasizing each area of their face with so much color; the boldest statement made can be the most minimalistic.

Green Eye Envy Eyeshadow Tutorial


In honor of St. Patrick's Day and somewhat close to the emerald color of the year, I decided to do a simple eyeshadow look.  This eyeshadow look can work on most eye shapes.  When I mean most, I would say if your eyes are hooded and droop at the outer end of the eyes, I would not do the outer eye end shading.  Other than that, the rest of the tutorial works for everyone.  I have used Grace from London Makeup Girl to show how the application compares to non-hooded Asian eyes.  Let's get on with the post.  Oh, by the way, I have to state first that I am using Lonjure Lashes in Timeless which I have received as a PR sample.

Shading the Eyes or Separating the Eyes from the Rest of the Face


It has been a long time coming for this tutorial but to tell you the truth it is hard to do a tutorial using oneself in real time.  In other words it is so much easier to just photoshop the steps, but I decided to show you on my mature eyes how shading the eyes work.

I have eliminated the steps on what products have been used.  I will just mention what colors I have used.  I will also leave out the details of how I did my winged liner and such because I covered that many times in many posts.

Want to Fly? Just Wing It!


Okay, so I explained a bit about the winged eyeliner here.  Yes, this is another post about it.  Why do I do so many posts about it?  It is one type of eyeliner that people want to do yet feel something is not right.  Also, like I said, it helps in creating an illusion of lift on the eyes and if you are not at that age of immediate cell regeneration, then you know every magical technique sans surgery is great to know.

Mad Men Inspired Eyeshadow Tutorial-Joan Holloway


The Mad Men television series not only is an excellent and well written show of the 60's era, it has also influenced the fashion and beauty industry.  For some of us who are old enough to remember, the fashion is remarkable replica of that time but with a bit of that update for today's television.  Same with the makeup, classic and very 60's with the winged eyeliners, the look has been updated to suit the vision of today's modern audience.  One character that continuously gets remarkable attention for her personality and looks is Joan Holloway (Harris).

A Reader Request-The Placement of the Wing Can Determine the Shape of the Eye


This is a short and simple tutorial.  I have skipped the usual brushes being used and eyeshadow colors since this really concentrates on one aspect of makeup--eyeliner.

Elongating the eye

Sometimes, a makeup artist or a regular makeup aficionado may want to change their eyes shape.  This may have to do with adapting the face to a certain character or just adapting an eye look to a certain eye shape.  Whether it is just for fun or for some editorial piece, changing the shape of the eye with makeup alone is always good to know.

Mad Men-Peggy Olson's Look

For a modernized 60's eye look, please check out this tutorial here


This is the final installment of the Mad Men women.  Peggy Olson is the ingenue of the group-makeup wise.  Her taste in make up, although a novice is much more youthful than the other three women.  Even though the 1960's didn't have the variety of colors as they do today, I thought I would just make Peggy's palette more colorful since she still has time to experiment.

Mad Men-Betty Draper's Look

Please go here for an updated and modernized 60's eye tutorial.

Here is one woman who divorced one of the most good looking and philandering guys of the 1960's-Don Draper.  Instead of becoming a woman of her own, she has decided to marry a guy much older than her so she can be taken care of.  Does this stem from the inadequacy of her father and his death?  She is no longer daddy's little girl but acts like one to Henry Francis.

Mad Men-Faye Miller's Look

Check out the modernized 60's eye tutorial here.


In Season 4, Mad Men introduced Faye Miller, a market researcher.  A well educated woman, one with a PhD to her name.  She exudes confidence in her work yet she is vulnerable when it comes to love.

Mad Men-Joan Holloway's Look

Please, check out the updated 60's eye tutorial here.

Disclaimer: The following is just an interpretation.  Make sure you have ample time to practice.  Don't get frustrated and start throwing your make up brushes.  Practice makes perfect.  Also, I can't guarantee that you will find a Don Draper or Roger Sterling at your door with this make up application.

For this tutorial I chose a look that I loved on Joan in season 4.  The makeup in this season has been modernized by the makeup artists on Mad Men.  Although, it still has that 1960's look, it can be worn today without looking dated.  The makeup is still polished but has that sultry eye look.
