According to this make-up fan, using black eyeliner on your lower eyelash line is hugely ageing. 

Shira, who has amassed 68.5k followers on the social media app, shared her anti-ageing tip and said: “Make-up mistakes to avoid if you’re over 35.”

She explained: “Lining your lower lash line with a dark black pencil liner definitely had its moment in the 90s.”

But according to Shira, if you are over 35-years-old, it’s time to “retire” the black eyeliner pencil from underneath your eyes.

She advised: “Instead, smudge a medium brown eyeshadow along your lower lash line, stopping halfway, for a fresher and more youthful look.”   

She then added: “This is a fresher, more youthful way to line your lower lash line.”

In the clip, Shira lined one of her eyes with a black eyeliner pencil.

She then took a brush, with some brown eyeshadow on it and smudged it along her eyelash line. 

You can instantly see a huge difference between both looks and we agree, the eyeshadow look is much softer and fresher.

Shira’s video has clearly impressed many, as it has quickly amassed a whopping 443.6k views.

It has 12.2k likes, 106 comments and 144 shares.

But TikTok users were left divided at Shira’s tip – while some agreed, others couldn’t bear the thought of parting with their black eyeliner. 

One person said: “I’m so glad I found this! I’m just starting to wear makeup again at 36 and I wasn’t sure where to start.” 

Another added: “I agree, I think the lower lash line eyeliner ages people.”

A third commented: “Omg I keep telling my mom this. And she won’t even listen to me and I’m bridal makeup artist!!!!! 😂” 

However, not everyone was as keen on Shira’s tip. 

One user noted: “You can take my black eyeliner when I’m dead.”

A second chimed in: “I’m keeping my 90s liner!!! Emo for life!” 

Whilst someone else posted: “I will never stop doing the bottom black liner. I’m over 40.”

Another user claimed: “This hurt my feelings. I’m 34.25 and I’m too young to think about this. 😞”
