Sometimes, you want to change your look a little, and by applying an eye shadow according to your eye shape can be a great way to do it. Read on to learn more!
ROUND EYES – If you have round eyes like Katy Perry, start by applying eyeliner from the inner corners of your eyes all the way to the outside ending in a straight line or small cat eye. Then highlight below the brow bone and the inner corners of your eye with a light eye shadow. To show contrast between the highlighted parts of the eye, take a medium eye shadow color and lightly apply it above your lid. Finally, thickly apply a darker color shadow along the crease of your eye, without going too overboard. Blend the shadow from the outside going towards the middle of the eye in order to give more shape to your lid. Voila! The perfect shadowed, doe-eye look à la Katy. Source: Elle
CLOSE-SET EYES – “With close-set eyes, you want to draw focus away from the center,” says Wang. Sarah Jessica Parker’s liner works because it’s heaviest on the outer edges of her eyes. For more of a daytime look, however, it’s best to avoid any dark colors near the tear ducts. On close-set eyes, Babaian relies on the three-quarter rule of starting color application one quarter of the way out from eyes’ innermost edges. She then lightly applies a dab of highlighter, like Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer ($28), in the inner corners of the eyes and just under the brow bones. Source: RedBookMag
WIDE SET EYES – If the distance between your eyes is greater than the size of your eye, they’re wide set. While there’s nothing wrong with some space, there are steps we can take to make it appear as if things are closer together. Start by tracing your upper and lower lash lines with a black liner, and get as close to the inner corner of your eyes as you can. Finish off by lengthening your lashes with some mascara, focusing on coating the lashes closest to the inner corner of your eye as well. Source: StyleCaster
ALMOND EYES – Freedman declares almond-shaped eyes as “the most fun eye shape to make up.” For day, he suggests using a matte taupe color over the lid, into the crease and upwards toward the brow bone. Then, use a deeper matte shade (we like MAC’s Eye Shadow ($15) in Charcoal Brown) on the outer corner and blend both lines together with a rounded eyeshadow brush. “To really make your eyes pop, add a champagne shimmer pencil or shadow to your inner eye and tear duct area,” Freedman suggests. He says to avoid the urge to use shimmer over the entire lid and crease, because it can make that area too prominent: “You want your actual eyes to pop, not the makeup!” Source: Byrdie
HOODED EYES – Those with hooded eyes know all too well the struggle of smudged eye makeup. Stop that from ever happening again with waterproof and smudge-proof makeup. Fiber mascaras can be great because they don’t smudge, but still come off easily with water at the end of the day. I also find that, generally, leaving the lower waterline free of eyeliner makes my eyes look bigger (another plus for those with hooded eyes). Ever put on a ton of eye shadow only to find it disappear as soon as you open your eyes? That’s a common problem if you have hooded eyes, but it’s easy to fix by simply extending the shadow’s placement above your eyelid’s crease towards the brow bone. Source: Bustle
