Small Eyes

What You’ll Need:

  • Brown or black Eyebrow Pencil
  • Pale (pink) Eyeshadow
  • Dark (brown) Eyeshadow
  • Black Liquid Eyeliner
  • Black Mascara

    Small eyes need help looking larger. You can open them up and enlarge them by enhancing eyebrows using a colored eyebrow pencil. Use brown pencils if you have fair skin and black pencils if you have dark skin. This really opens up your eyes. Then use soft colors like a pale pink shadow over the entire eyelid, up to the brow. Then outline your eyes with a darker color like a brown shadow.

    Apply your brown shadow following your lash line, both above and below your eye. Be sure to apply it from the inner corner of the eye to the outside corner. In other words, circle it around your eyes! Smudge the shadow under your eyes just a bit. Use a black eyeliner above the lash line and finish by using a black mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

    Round Eyes

    What You’ll Need:

  • Brown or Black Eyebrow Pencil
  • Pale (green) Eyeshadow
  • Dark (green) Eyeshadow
  • Liquid Black Eyeliner
  • Black Mascara

    To correct round eyes, you need your makeup to help elongate them and make them appear wider. To do this, use a pale shadow over the entire upper lid, up to the brow and then line it under the lower lash line. Apply a darker shade (in the same color) over the upper lid only, to the crease. Apply black eyeliner along the upper lash line only, making the line thinner towards the inner eye to thicker at the outer eye. Extend it slightly beyond the outer eye. Sweep black mascara on top lashes only. Apply several coats. These eye makeup tips will help lengthen round eyes.

    To define Asian eyes, softly arch your eyebrows. Fill in any gaps with your eyebrow pencil. Apply a light (white) color eyeshadow over your entire lid, up to your brows.

    Heavy Brows

    What You’ll Need:

  • Light Shade (white) Eyeshadow
  • Shimmering Light Shade (lilac) Eyeshadow
  • Dark Shade (violet) Eyeshadow
  • Black Pencil Eyeliner
  • Black Liquid Eyeliner
  • Black Mascara

    To balance heavy brows, you’ll need to first brush them, then shape them. Remove stray eyebrow hairs by plucking them out of the way. Apply a shimmering shadow over the entire eye area, up to the brow, then apply your white shadow around the inner corner of your eyes. Apply your darker shade (violet) around the outer corner of your eyes, extending slightly beyond lash lines and underneath your lower lash line to accent your outer eyes. Do not connect the darker outer shadow with your lighter inner shadow.

    Darker colors should not follow along the entire lash line, but instead only be placed only around the outer eyes. Line bottom lashes with black pencil liner and use liquid liner along upper lashes. Finish by applying black mascara on top and bottom lashes. These eye makeup tips will offset heavy brows by drawing attention to your eyes instead.

    Use these eye makeup tips to transform your eyes. You'll feel better, create an eye-awesome finish, and look fantastic; throughout the day and into the night!
