Eye Types, Styles, and Eye Make up Techniques
If you have almond shaped eyes, you will have very little natural creasing in your eye lid. The best eye make up style for this is to create a contrast between the eyelid and the brow bone.
In order to do this you will need to use eyeliner to line both the upper and lower eyelids. Keep the line as close as you can to your eyelashes. Next use a light shade eye shadow from your lashes to your brow. Then use a medium shade on your eyelid, and then a darker shade on the outer third of your eyelid. To finish this look apply mascara to both the upper and lower lids.
If your eyes are close set you will need to try and create an illusion of width. The eye make up style that you use to create this involves emphasizing the outer edges of your eyes.
Start by using eyeliner on the outer half of both your top and bottom eyelids. Then apply a light colored eye shadow from the eyelash line to the brow. Taking your darker shade of eye shadow, you will then apply this from the outer third of the eyelid to just beyond the eyes edge. Finish with mascara on top and bottom.
Deep set eyes will normally have a very prominent eyebrow bone and this can cause your eyelids to appear hidden. The key here is to make your eyes look more open.
Again as in all our eye make up techniques, you will need to use eyeliner on both the top and bottom eyelids. Smudge the eyeliner to soften the line. Apply a light shade of eye shadow from the eyelash to the eyebrow line, darkening it slightly above the eyelid crease. Blend your eye shadow at the edges to soften the appearance. This will help to bring the appearance of the eyelid forward. Finish with a couple of coats of mascara.
The make up technique for wide set eyes is to make them appear closer. To do this you will to apply eyeliner to both the top and bottom eyelids. Apply a light eye shadow over the entire eyelid. Use a darker shade of eye shadow in the inner corner of the eye lid and blend this up and out. Finish with mascara that is more prominent on the inner corner of the eye.
If you have round eyes, you will need to make them appear slightly elongated. To achieve this you will need to apply eyeliner to both the top and bottom eyelids, extending the liner just beyond the outer corners. With your eye shadow, you will need to focus the light color on the outer section of the eyebrow bone making sure that it is brushed outwards. When finishing with your mascara, you will need to concentrate more on the upper lashes and especially the outer corners of the eyes.
Remember the right eye make up can help to add to the beauty of your eyes.
