The Best Eye Creams to Wear Under Makeup for Mature Skin

Eye cream is essential for my dry under eyes. It can help with anti-aging and act as a gentle primer for the under-eye area. However, finding the perfect eye cream that sits well with makeup can be challenging. In today’s blog post, I share my favorite eye creams to wear under makeup for mature skin!

I have tried using various eye creams—both drugstore and high-end products over the years—only to find the best ones that have considerably helped me with prepping my under eyes for makeup. Here are seven eye creams that work well underneath makeup on dry, mature skin.

Formulated with Niacinamide, Neurosensine, and thermal spring water, this lightweight eye cream is perfect for those who have sensitive eye areas, watery eyes, or are prone to irritation from dryness.

I truly believe this delivers way more than it promises. I love how the combination of this serum’s brightening and firming properties helps bring a hint of glow underneath my eyes—it gives me a whopping bang for my buck!

    Thank you Stephanie. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I really started paying attention to skin ingredients. I try different eye creams and really want to try the IT Cosmetics and the Kiehl’s Avocado eye creams. Most of the time I use the Derma E Peptides and Collagen eye cream or the Timeless. I like them both but still have more to try. I am really into the peptides and collagen.
