EYESHAPES AND SHADOWS
ALMOND EYES: Considered the perfect eye shape and you can try almost every eye shadow technique. They all look good.
CLOSE SET EYES: Area between the eyes is smaller than one eye. Apply light colours on inner corners. Use dark colours on the outer corners, blending up and outwards. Eyeliner applied on outer corners only. Emphasize outer corner of lashes by applying mascara more to that area as well as individual false lashes can be added to the outer corners too. Avoid using liner on inner wet lines.
WIDE SET EYES: Area between eyes is wider than one eye and flat. Contour down sides of nose from brow downwards. Pencil eyebrows closer together subtly. Shadow application should be soft and subtle. Accentuate inner corner of eyes, with dark colours. Emphasise middle of face. Apply dark eyeliner on inner wet lines.
DEEP SET EYES: Eye is deep into socket with a small eyelid area. Highlight eyelid and inner corner with light shadows. Use deeper colours just above socket line and blend up and out. Creating a more open eye.
ROUND EYES: As eyes look round you need to make eyes elongated. Apply darker shadows on outer corners and blend up. Use eyeliner to extend and elongate the eye. Lengthen brows with pencil or shadow. Apply individual lashes to outer corners. Avoid shimmer and pearl colours.
HOODED EYES: Fold of skin hanging over socket line, normally with age. Highlight eyelid with light shadows and create a higher socket line with darker matt colours, blending out to outer corner. Use matt shadows to highlight under brow.
DOWN TURNED EYES: Need to make eyes appear turned up, on the outer corners. Blending darker shadows along socket line and up using 2/3 of the eye area. Apply thin eyeliner on top lash line. Curling lashes and apply mascara and a few individual lashes on outer corner of eye. Gives the “Lift” appearance.
