If you are a makeup lover, don't you get excited to see a beautifully packaged eye shadow palette? You obviously do! After all, the eye shadow is one of the most transformative of all makeup products. Those colors, textures, contours and combination capabilities give us an overwhelming number of possibilities when it comes to creating new looks. However, what looks good on someone else, may not necessarily look good on you. If you're wondering why, know that it all boils down to eye shape.
Here we give some tips on how you should wear your eye shadow depending on your eye-shape.
To create an overall balance and to keep away from looking over-the-top, use just one color of eye shadow, if you have round eyes.
Start by applying eyeliner from the inner corners of your eyes, all the way to the outside ending in a straight line. Next, highlight below the brow bone and also the inner corners of your eyes using a light eye shadow. Use medium eye shadow color above your lids. This will ensure a contrast. To complete the look, use a darker shade along the crease. To finish, blend from the outside towards the middle.
In the case of deep-set eyes, you can use the same application techniques as you would for round eyes. However, keep in mind that you have to accentuate the highlighted areas and not overpower it with dark shadow. In that case, apply the dark shadow lightly.
Women with monolids have a natural cat-eye shape, which can be accentuated.
Instead of using black liner, you could try layering a trio of blue shadow. Begin with a blue liner along the upper lashline. Follow it up with a blue eyeshadow right above the line, extending it outward. Next, use a lighter shade above the blue eyeshadow extending it even further. Toss in a white shimmery eyeshadow on the rest of the lid going up to the brow line in order to complete the look.
You are lucky! Every eye shadow style looks good on you. The bronzy and smokey top that list.
To get the look, simply use two cream bronze eye shadows and a deep bronze eyeliner. To begin, go in with the darker shade on the lid. Next, layer with the lighter shade on the crease to the brow. Finally, rim the entire eye with the liner before you blend.
For down-turned eyes, use your eyeshadow to shade the same way you would in the case of almond-shaped eyes. Here, the only difference is the liner. It has to be much heavier and has to go all the way from the inner corners of your eyes, extending all the way outside.
Hooded eyes usually do not need much of highlighting.
You can simply use light shadow on the inner corner of your eyes. Then apply a medium hue to your hooded lid. To give the illusion of a rounder eye, go with a darker shade around the crease. Finish by extending your liner further.
Now line, shade and highlight like a pro!
