Deep-set eyes are when your eyes are set further back than the rest of your face, and give the impression of having a prominent brow bone. This brow bone can make your eye look smaller and can sometimes cast a shadow over the under eye area. Makeup for deep-set eyes may seem tricky, but once you understand how to dress your particular eye shape, it gets easy!
These simple makeup tricks and tips will ensure that your deep-set eyes look absolutely stunning.
- Apply concealer
- Highlight your eyes
- Don’t forget your brow bone
- Try a pop of shimmer
- It’s all about the mascara
- Just wing it
Dark circles tend to show prominently if you have deep-set eyes and make your eyes look tired and small. It is important to get rid of the dark circles by using a concealer. Start by patting a colour-corrector all over the under eye area. Then go over it with a concealer in a shade closest to your skin tone and blend until it looks seamless for beautiful, highlighted eyes.
Highlight your eyes
An amazing trick to enhance deep-set eyes is to apply a little highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes. This little makeup trick can immediately make your eyes appear bigger, brighter and bring them forward. Use a shimmery white, nude or champagne highlighter in the inner corners of your eyes to make them pop.
Don’t forget your brow bone
Highlighters rock! These little babies do so much more than just making your face glow. Applying highlighter on the brow bone gives the illusion of eyes that are lifted and set more forward.
Try a pop of shimmer
Using a light-reflective or shimmery shade on the lid helps create brightness. Additionally, using shimmery eye makeup is a great way to draw attention to your eyes and make them pop.
It’s all about the mascara
There is no doubt about the fact that long, fluttery lashes flatter any eye shape, but they especially make a world of difference to deep-set eyes. Always use a mascara that’s both volumising and lengthening, and if needed, go ahead with a second coat.
Just wing it
Just because you have deep-set eyes does not mean you have to skip the eyeliner. For best results, always start by applying a thin stroke in the inner corner and gradually make it thicker as you edge outwards tracing a wing.
