The Right Makeup For Your Shaped Eye


To create the illusion of more space between the eye, attention must be away from the center. To achieve this, apply a light eye shadow from the inner corner to the iris and darker shadow from the iris out toward the edges, blending well.  Eyeliner must be drawn as close to the lash line as possible, from the outer edge of the iris to the outer corners of the top and bottom lash lines and smudge slightly.

To make eyes look closer together, apply a dark liner on the inner corners of the eye and blend.  Eye shadow should be applied starting at the inner corner of the eye, but let it fade out before the outer edges.

Light colors come forward, and dark colors recede. To bring eyes forward, sweep a light shade of eye shadow on the lids from lashes to the brow.  Don’t use too much it should barely look there.

To lengthen the eye, line the outer two-thirds of your upper and lower lash lines and join the lines at the outer corners turning up just a tiny bit. Apply mascara to the outer lashes only.

Line the top lid along the lash line pulling up slightly at the outer corners. Apply eye shadow on the top of the line or smudge it to look softer.

To make eyes look more open, curl lashes with an eyelash curler and apply mascara first to middle lashes, then apply it on the diagonal.
