Whats your eye shape?

No one is the same, we all have different eyes, faces, noses, mouths, you get the picture. My point is that due to the fact that we all look different we can't all follow the same beauty trends because it may not look good on us. Today I am focusing on eye  shapes and the makeup looks for them.

Here are the different eye shapes.

  • Like an oval face is the ideal face shape, almond eyes are the ideal eyes.
  • Close set eyes are less that one eye width apart and wide set are more than one eye apart.
  • Hooded eyes often come with age as the skin becomes loose, but it can also be hereditary.
  • Deep set are deep in the socket compared to others, the brows can often protrude??? a little bit.

So now you have figured out what shape you are you may be wondering, what the heck do I do now?

Well, my lovely, I am going to tell you the best way to apply eyeshadow and liner to help you achieve the best looking eyes in the room.

Wide Set Eyes - add a shade/darker colour in > shape on the outside of your eye into the crease line and also in the corner of your eye to detract attention from the space in-between and make your eyes appear closer together.
Downturned Eyes - The focus for this is to shade up and out. Apply and blend eye shadow to the crease line in the outer 2/3 of the eye and apply eyeliner to the upper lash line. This will make the eye appear less downturned.
Almond Eyes - Any eye technique will work on this eye shape.

Close Set Eyes - Use light colours on the inner corners and extend the eyeshadow out with darker colours to make the eye appear elongated and further apart.

Protruding/Prominent Eyes - Using medium to dark matte colours you are going to shade the eye.

Hooded Eyes - Use matte colours in medium to dark and keep it simple.
Deep Set Eyes - Apply light colours on the lid and a deep colour in the crease and just above the crease blending up and out.

Asian Eyes - Highlight on lid and brow bone and elongate eyeshadow with a darker shade.

Hope I helped you guys, sorry I haven't posted much I have been away and busy studying.
