What do peeps do about their eyelids when you try to put on eyeshadow and your eyelid sort of wrinkles iyswim? Mine are just so creased and it's disconcerting when trying to apply eye colour. They look ok at first but as soon as I try to blend.... sadIs it about primer? Powder v cream shadow? Hydration? What? It just looks yucky to me when I try. It makes me think of my nana. Now, I loved my nana but I don't won't to feel nana like!

I use Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion as I need my make up to stay on all day and it works well. Maybe also look into an eye cream as well as your normal moisturiser? I had to completely change all my make up around 6 months ago as my skin had changed with the menopause if that helps.

My mum is your age and she tends to apply an all over colour instead of shades because that's what looks best on crinkled eyes ( sadly I think it's just something you have to adapt to with age)

Mine are ok since I've been using LRP redermic R (at night) and Redermic C (morning). It seems to temporarily uncrinkle as it moisturises.
