What's your eyeshape?

Posted on November 11, 2014

Want to know your eyeshape? then you better read it! this will help you determine your eyeshape. And once you figured it out, you will now look for a make up application that will compliment your eyeshape.

DEEP SET EYES

They are large and is deeper, thus you'll surely thought they have a more prominent brow bone.Since your lashes will likely graze your lids, it's better to apply  a waterproof mascara to prevent smudges. A dark eyelid does not work for this eye shape. You want to highlight the eyelids of deep-set eyes as much as possible, to help bring them out. A dark lid pushes them farther back into the head.There is no need to highlight the brow bone, since it is already prominent. Highlighting brings it forward even more, and we want it to recede.

MONOLID

Monolid or mono eyelid or Mongolian fold (outdated incorrect term) or Epicanthic fold (technical term) or slanty eye (derogatory term) is a single eyelid, instead of double eyelids. They are usually seen in asians.Create definition and the illusion of dimension on your flat surface with a gradient of eye shadows, dark to light. Always curl lashes for a lift.

HOODED EYELIDS

Hooded eyes feature an extra layer of skin that droops over the crease, causing the lid to appear smaller.   If someone has hooded eyes, their eyelids always look as though they are partly closed.  They are also sometimes called "Bedroom eyes". Avoid using a dark eyeshadow over the entire lid, because it can make the lid appear heavier and will make the eyes look closed and small.

 

PROTRUDING EYES

Protruding eyes create the appearance of projected lids in the eye socket area. Luckily, the bulge gives you plenty of lid space to play with! Never highlight the eyelids – the eyes will appear even more prominent. Remember, everything we highlight is visually pulled forward. A deeper or contour shade across the entire eyelid helps to minimize the fullness and makes it appear to recede.

UPTURNED EYES

The upturned eye takes the form of a classic almond shape, with a natural lift at the outer corner. Your objective should be to create a downward illusion on the up turned outer corner of the eye. One way of achieving this objective is applying dark eyeliner on the outer corner. Most people often turn to liquid eyeliner. This is good if you want to create dramatic looks. However, if you want subtle looks, which will perfectly reduce the upward turning appearance, you need to go for waterproof eyeliner pencil.

DOWNTURNED EYES

Downturned eyes have a slight dropping on the outer corners. This is the perfect shape for creating a sexy cat’s eye shape. They are sometimes referred to as "sad, puppy-dog eyes". You want to create what we call an "open-ended" eye, which means that the color from your top lash line and bottom lash line do not meet at the outer corner of the eye. If the color meets at the outside corner, it will accentuate the droop. By leaving it natural, you actually create a visual lift to the eye. When applying mascara, be sure to concentrate on the middle to inside lashes. Defined lashes in the outer corners of the eyes also accentuate the droopiness.

CLOSE SET EYES

People with close-set eyes tend to have distance or space between the two eyes is smaller than the width of one eye(one eyeball). These people are characteristically found with narrow noses (slender nose). To help you visualize checkout on people and celebrities we have give you below. Keep the inside corner of your eyes and the areas closest to your nose as light as possible, to help visually push the eyes apart. Concentrate the darker shades on the outer corners of the eyes. Always elongate your darkest shadows, to help pull the eyes apart.

 

WIDE SET EYES

To determine whether or not you have wide-set eyes, measure the width of one eye. The space between your eyes should equal the width of one eye. If the space between your eyes is greater than on eye width, your eyes are considered wide-set. Your goal is the create the illusion that they are set closer together (visually pushing them in).To visually "push" your eyes closer together, you need to darken the inside hollows of your eye next to the bridge of the nose. Deepening the color in this area helps your eyes appear to be set closer together. To get the needed color depth, do not bring your contour color all the way in – just layer your midtone shade.
