All eyes are not created equal, so what might work for a person with almond eyes, won’t necessarily work for a person with hooded eyes. Below is a description of each different shaped out and the techniques used to enhance them.<p>
This eye have a dramatic, sultry look. It can be enhanced by concentrating colour near the eye's inner corners. Extend smoky shadow beyond outer corners to exaggerate them. Brush lashes out.
To make the eyes seem farther apart,
o Apply the most intense colour near the outer corners of the eyes.
o Line top and bottom of eyes in any colour, but begin drawing a quarter of the way out from the inner eye.
o Smudge lines.
o Dust a highlighter (or light-coloured eyeshadow) just below the outer corners of lower lashes to call attention to the outsides of eyes.
o Brush mascara on to upper and lower lashes.
These are the most common eye shape with their upswept lift at the outer corner. These eyes calls for creativity. These eyes can be made to look deeper and more intense.
These eyes are set so the natural crease in the eyelid is not readily seen. Highlighting the brow bone and lining the lash base gives hooded eyes an alluring shape.
To enhance hooded eyes
o Apply a medium to dark shadow on the crease and hooded area.
o Sweep a lighter shadow on the brow bone and on the inside corner of the eye.
o Draw a very thin line along the top lash line (to keep the eye looking open) and smudge with a cotton swab.
o Apply black mascara to upper lashes.
o Line upper lash-line only. Gradually soften shadow as you approach the brow.
This seem to recede, need to be brought forward. The eyelid crease is set back so the area from the base of lashes to brow bone seems hidden. To enhance the deep-set eyes line upper and lower lids (never just upper). Choose light shadows -pale pink, peach or beige- of eye shadow. More intense shading on the brow bone also gives the eyes prominence.
o Draw a fairly thick line all the way across the top lash line with a brown or black pencil.
o Apply a medium to dark shadow on the lid and in the crease. (As on the body, dark colour makes the features recede.)
o Finish with a coat of black mascara on both upper and lower lashes.
<p>To make the eyes appear closer together,
It tends to give your face an open, youthful appearance. This look can be intensified by applying the strongest eye makeup effects near the outer corner of the eye. Keep shadow uniform and within outer corners. Brush lashes straight up.
o Use more intense eye shadow colours near the inner corner of the eyes.
o Line eyes completely – top and bottom – from inner to outer corners.
o Apply a medium-toned shadow to lids and creases, concentrating the colour on the inner corners.
o Use mascara generously, on both upper and lower lashes.
