There are many different eye shapes that should be made up and emphasized differently. First you need to determine your eye shape. Are your eyes almond-shaped or round? Which way are the corners of your eyes pointing? Do you have drooping eyelids? Are your eyes close or wide apart? Regardless of the shape of your eyes, here you will find tips and tricks on how to adapt your make-up to the shape of your eyes.
If you have oval eyes that run up at the outer corner of your eyes, then your eyes are almond-shaped. Emphasizing this eye shape is not difficult. Start at the inner corner of your eyes and draw a thin eyeliner that becomes thicker towards the outside. This is how you emphasize the curved shape of your eyes. If you want to make the eyes look bigger, draw a light eyeliner or eye shadow along the lower waterline.
If you have round eyes, it is best to emphasize the outer corners of the eyes. A dark color would be suitable for this, be it with eye shadow or eyeliner. When you apply eyeshadow, make the colors sharper towards your temple. To accentuate the eye makeup even more, you can coat your eyelashes outwards instead of upwards.
Eyes Close Together:
If your eyes are close to each other, you should apply most of the eye make-up to the outer corner of the eye. When applying eyeliner, start in the middle of the eyelid and pull the eyeliner past the outer corners of the eyes. If you apply light or shimmering eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye, you ensure that the eyes are optically further apart.
Eyes Wide Apart:
If your eyes are wide apart, it is best to draw an eyeliner over the top of the lash line with a dark color. Draw to the inner corner of the eye or even beyond. The eye make-up should become less and lighter towards the outside.
If your eyelids can hardly be seen with the open eye, you have drooping eyelids. If you have drooping eyelids, you should not apply your eye makeup with your eyes closed, as it disappears when you open them. Apply make up with your eyes while they are open, and be sure to apply a good primer before so that the eyeshadow doesn’t smear under the lid. Apply the eyeshadow to both the eyelids and the crease. You should not blend the makeup upwards, but outwards. It is also advisable to draw a thin line over the lashes with an eyeliner.
Rising Eye Corners:
This eye shape is “cat eyes.” It feels like the lower lash line is longer than the upper. To emphasize these eyes, use dark eye make-up such as smokey eyes with dark eyeshadow that you can also apply to the lower lid.
Falling Eye Corners:
if you have eyes that have downward corners, you can use the right eye makeup to lift the outer area. To do this, draw a horizontal line with a neutral color along your crease. You can also use an eyeliner to lengthen the outer corners of your upper lash line upwards.
