Makeup is not a “one-size-fits-all” thing. It has to be customized by simply knowing the best makeup for your eye shape. We all know that there are different eye shapes and there is no singular design or technique that can enhance everything. Read the guide below to know what you should do with your eye shape.
Monolid Or Hooded Eyes
Applying eye makeup is a common dilemma among Asians or women with a monolid type. Hooded or monolid eyes do not have a visible crease so it makes the application of eye make up a little bit challenging. It is also characterized by lesser lid space but with more pronounced brow bones. The first step is to sweep a light-colored shadow across your lid in order to serve as your base color. Apply a shimmery color with a medium shade from your lash line to the middle of your lid. You have to assume where your crease will be and stop there. The last step is to define your upper lash line with a dark pencil or eyeliner. Blend the product upward to create a smoky effect. Another trick is to apply all of these with your eyes open so that you won’t spend time crafting the perfect eye makeup that will just disappear when you open your eyes.
The next type of eye shape is called downturned. This is when the outer corners of your eyes are in a downward motion. It could be subtle but it could also be very noticeable on some people. Take a pearly or white shade and sweep it all over your eyelid but concentrate the product on your brow bone. This will give the illusion that your eyes are more upturned and therefore more alive. Add a medium matte shade on your lash line and then blend it from the outer corner of the crease and upward. Finish the look with a liner that begins from the inner corner of the eye and then flick the wing upward.
Almond eye shapes are characterized by elongated eyes that are slightly upturned at the outer corners. Begin with a light shadow from your lash line up to your brow bone. Deepen the crease by using a medium shade. Apply the same shade along your lash line. You can finish this off by lining the upper and lower lash lines with a dark pencil to make your eyes seem smaller.
