the shape of your eyes.
or BULGING EYE
CLOSE SET EYES
The goal here is to recess the eyelid, from
seemingly to protrude. Uses a dark toned eye shadow and blend this over the
eyelid, fading color away near eye socket. Apply eyeliner along top
lid, and lightly smudge. On lower lid, draw eyeliner at outer corner
only and smudge softly. Apply highlighter on brow line. Please
donít use light or frosted colors on eyelid, as this will make eyes pop
out further. With this eye shape, finish off with some navy or deep
gray pencil on inner rims to help make the eyeballs appear smaller.
These need a dark shadow blended into out half of the eyes to give illusion
that they are further apart. Start by drawing your pencil out a little
just above natural eye crease. Now blend a strong color into the outer
area. The inner top lid area can be left natural or a pale color can be
used if you like. When applying mascaras, brush your top lashes outwards,
concentrating on the color with an extra coat
on outer lashes
Can appear closer set and more
attractive if you emphasize the inner eye area with color to draw eyes together.
Apply eyeliner pencil all way across the bottom lid with only a tiny extension
on the outer corners. Apply any strong colored shadow to your outer socket
line, but instead of extending it up and out, angle it towards your inner brows.
Further enhance this with a lighter shade on your inner lid and complete the
look with mascara concentrating on inner lashes.
SMALL EYES. to recognize this as your
shape, there seems to be very little space between lashes and eyebrows, so we
need to give the appearance of a much larger eye. Apply a light color on the
Use a darker shade in the socket (or crease) of
eye and bring this color to the outer corner to lengthen eye area. With dark
toned eyeliner, outline eye, intensifying color slightly at outer edges of
eye, then slightly smudge. Use a light highlighter along the brow bone
to add width to eye.
DEEP SET EYES
. This type appears like a hooded eye. Place a light
colored shadow over entire lid, and apply a highlighter along the brow bone
line. Use a darker toned shadow, and begin at the socket line and blend
color out above the crease to recess the area. Use a small amount of eyeliner,
in a thin line for definition only along top lid and 2/3'rds along lower lid
blending towards the outer edge.
ASIAN EYE SHAPE
has a minimal eyelid and eyes are wide space. Gently brush a light or
neutral color over eye area and blend towards nose area. Using a darker
shadow, apply to lid, starting along lash line, and fading the color upwards
and out to a half-way pint between lash and eyebrow. Apply eyeliner close to
lashes to give appearance of thickened lash line. Line the lower lid and
smudge to soften the line.
NORMAL EYES. If
you are fortunate enough to have this shape you can be as adventurous as you
like. What you should be aiming for with eye makeup is to make your eyes look
even more attractive by giving them strength with the help of eyeliner pencil.
A pale color can be blended on lid while a darker shade is smoothed into the
outer corners and socket line to give more depth and character. Finish
off with a coat of mascara.
DROOPY EYES. These need to be lifted at the sides with the help of clever
shading on the outer areas of the top lid. A little extra eyeliner slanted
upwards on the corners and further blended and subtly extended with shadow
plus extra mascara on the top lashes.
AGEING EYES can look years younger with the help of
soft contouring. Use eyeliner pencil around the outer corner of the
eyes, making sure that the line is kept thin. Avoid frosted shadows
completely. Apply a soft toned shadow, like a mossy green, light brown
or gray with a hint of blue in it, to the outer eye area, keeping the color
close to the lashes. Use a soft peach color on your inner top lid.
Mascara often looks too thick and unnatural on older eyes, so try to have
lashed tinted instead OR apply mascara lightly.
Then apply your Mascara: Take out the mascara wand and roll it on a tissue to remove any excess product. (Don't pump the wand in the tube -- you'll introduce air and
dry out the mascara.) Hold the wand at the base of the lashes, give the wand a wiggle and pull it through the lashes. Build volume with several thin layers rather than a single
goopy one. Clumps? Comb them out with an eyelash comb or a disposable plastic wand.
