Thinning lashes
Like brows, eyelashes become thinner and faded, too. They get drier, more brittle and fall out as you get older. Laura suggests having eyelashes professionally dyed as well, if they aren't too fragile. Plus, a reliable way to make your eyes "pop," she says, is mascara.

Apply mascara, focusing on the base of the lash. Don't place a heavy load of mascara on the tips of the lashes or they'll look clumpy and heavy. "As women get older, they should focus on highlighting the contour of the eyes," Laura says. "Place mascara at the root, then [lightly] paint each individual lash."
