Wide-set eyes

Wide-set eyes

First of all, you don’t need to worry about eye makeup because this eye shape is incredibly easy to work with. Use a darker shade in the inner corner of your eyes to make them look closer together. Apply a lighter shade on the outer corner to enhance the look. Avoid using shimmery eye shadow as it emphasizes the space and can completely bring your eye makeup game down.

 

Close-set eyes

Highlighting the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes work best for those with close-set eyes. So start with that and then apply a medium-shade eyeshadow on the rest of your eyelids, extending a little on the outer corners. Pick a darker shade from the palette and apply it on the outer corner up to the crease.

 

Protruding

This eye shape is quite tricky to work with because you don’t want to the eyes to look too wide or awake. The trick here is to keep the makeup minimal. Start by applying a nude eyeshadow on the entire lid, preferably a matte shade. Avoid crease cut or any look that involves too much definition. Instead opt for a nice smokey eye to push the eye back.

 

Droopy

Apply a little highlighter under your eyebrow arch to pull the attention upwards and counteract the drooping. Apply eyeshadow higher on the lids and avoid defining the lash line which can make them appear droopier.

Start by applying a light shade on the inner corner of the eyes, then add a medium shade eyeshadow above the lid for contrast and finish off with a darker shade along the crease. Ensure you blend the eyeshadow from the outside to the middle of your eyelid.
