Before we begin talking about different eye shapes I want to tell you some little make-up secrets that can be helpful for you in creating a perfect look of yours.
Here they are:
Shadows of dark tones make your eyes visually smaller, deep set, whilst light tints, on the contrary, make them appear bigger. If you want to create the effect of big, attractive eyes, prefer light eyeshadows. Eyeshadows should be applied after an eye pencil or any other kind of eyeliner: this will make your look softer and dreamy. For a more dramatic look, apply eyeliner after the application of eye-shadows.
Don’t forget to curl your eyelashes, and then cover them with a layer of mascara. Avoid lining the inner edge of the lower eyelashes, as it can make your eyes visually smaller.
Wide Set Eyes
Put darker color from inner corner to the center of your eyelid, blending into medium shade that started from the outer corner. The lightest shade should be concentrated in the center under the brow.
Close Set Eyes
To correct that with the help of an eyeliner draw a very thin line along the upper eyelashes so that it becomes thicker near the outer corner of your eyes or you may start lining a quarter of the way out from the inner eye corner.
Put a very thin layer of light eye-shadows from the inner corner of your eyes to the middle of your eyelid. After that apply shadows of darker hues starting from the middle of your eyelid to the outer corner. Blend the colors in the middle of the lids. Mascara both upper and lower lashes but use more mascara on the outer corners.
Deep Set Eyes
Apply light colors in the middle of the lid, and darker colors – on and just above the socket line. Blend the darker shade softly up and out.
And put the lightest shade under brow. Remember, dark colors on brow bone will make deep set eyes look even deeper. Avoid using eyeliner on top lids, which will sink eyes further back. But line lower lid under lashes on outer one-third. Then smudge pencil line to just a shadow to minimize heaviness of top brow.
Then sweep a lighter shadow on the brow bone and on the inside corner of the eye. Draw a very thin line along the top lash line (to keep the eye looking open) and smudge it with a cotton swab.
Apply dense black mascara to upper lashes only.
Draw a thinner line under the lower eyelashes. To make your eyes look visually wider put brown eyeshadow on your eyebrows or apply a brown pencil. Cover your eyelashes with two or three layers of dense mascara.
Small EyesTo enhance small eyes
apply a medium-toned shadow (such as soft grey or blue) to the crease and lighter shadow on the eyelids. Then use a soft-colored liner both on the top and bottom lash lines, extending the top line across the entire lash line. Apply black mascara on upper lashes.
Your best decision is – medium to deep shades of shadow on the lids as they help to minimize the appearance of your lids. Liner when applied to the lash bases from corner to corner gives prominent eyes a smoldering and mysterious look. Finish with a coat of black mascara on both upper and lower lashes.
If you wear glasses your make-up should depend on the color of the frame. If the frame is bright, you don’t have to add color with eyeshadows.
Pay attention to your eyelashes and put the accent on them. Opt for a black mascara.
To give your eyelashes more volume and make them fluffy, use a dense mascara and apply it from the roots to the tips. Besides, you should correct your brow line as it will be seen before people see your eyes.
