Makeup trends and eyeshadow colors go in and out of style. At our age, we have seen many of these trends come and go and sometimes even come back. There were other times when I went most days with minimal makeup. Yes, I went through the super bright and shimmery colors of the 80s.
The delicate skin around our eyes is already thin, and each year, as we blow the candles out on our cake after making another trip around the sun, that skin becomes even more prone to fine lines and wrinkles.

Bone-colored shadows, on the other hand, can be too light, giving away any would-be wrinkles or veins beneath.
