She suggested that we avoid lengthening mascaras and focus on a thick full formula product like Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Black.She then curled my eyelashes after applying the mascara with the very unique Ariane Poole Heated Eye Lash Curler.Ariane explains that these are good choices, but, a few new products and change in technique could make all the difference. So we begin with Ariane taking off the makeup on just one side of my face.Then she makes the following 6 tweaks: I had not applied primer before we started taping, because I had used a cream foundation.This is one of her most important makeup tips for older women.After applying primer and foundation, Ariane applied a slightly darker shade of Ariane Poole Mineral Illuminating Pen on the top of the cheek bone, not under my eyes.By stopping the colour short from the end of my eye she achieved a lifted, wide eyed look.

She explained that the concealer should be applied lower on the face so that the light from the concealer reflects back up and hides the dark circle.
This is where Ariane made some dramatic changes to my appearance.
First she used a slightly lighter shade of eyebrow colour, Bobbi Brown Eye Pencil in Ash.
Her technique involved brushing my eyebrows down, outlining them with the pencil and then brushing my eyebrows back up. I suggest that you watch the video to get the right technique because it made a big difference.After just a few minutes, one half of my face was transformed!
