    Hello Di,

    I was born with naturally puffy upper eyelids and now that i’m in my mid 40′s the skin is begining to sag. I’ve never been able or known how apply shadow to my natural puffy lids and now that they droop i’m having a hargder time. Is there away I can comoflage the drooping lid withouot having to where so much shadow? I’ve always been self counsion of my eyes and now its even worst, I hide behind my sunglasses and avoid taking pictures. I have 6 children 5 boys and 1 girl and we don’t have one single family picture, because of my insurity. One more question, do you know why I always look hidous in pictures, but mirrors make me look ok looking? Thanks!

      Hi Lourdes,

      Without seeing your photo, I’m not sure how extensive the droopiness of your eyelids are but there are some things with make-up that you can do that will help. First, avoid very shimmery eye shadow that will draw more attention to your lids. Second, be sure to use a foundation that is lighter than your skin tone before applying your matte eyeshadow. In addition, see my blog on Beauty Sleep where I give some great tips that improve the potential for puffy lids. Unfortunately, as we age, our eyelids begin to sag. If you see a woman in her 60′s with perfect eyelids, then you know she has plastic surgery. An upper lid bleph (or eyelid surgery) is not a major surgery and if this is an area that is of great concern to you, perhaps you should investigate this as an option…..

      Lastly, please let yourself shine in photographs. It is “you” that your family wants to see and I’m afraid that you will deeply regret not letting those special memories be recorded in photo albums. Since it is a concern for you, try having photos taken in dim light rather than really bright light where every line can be seen. Please keep me posted and I do hope that you make it a beautiful day!
