These 7 Mascaras Will Give Women Over 50 the Lashes of Their Dreams

As we age, our makeup needs to be upgraded.

No longer can we wear the same cosmetics we once donned religiously in our youth. That's not to say you can't, but one definitely needs to be more selective with what she covers her face in.

This sentiment rings especially true with mascara. When our lashes were once lush and long, they've started to become sparse and short. To breathe new life into them, we've rounded up the best mascara for women over 50.

Your lashes will look the best they've ever looked with an added boost of one of the mascaras on this list. Which one will you buy?
