Got deep-set eyes? Here’s how to enhance them with makeup!

If you have eyes that look like they're deep in your face and make it look like you have a prominent brow bone, then you have deep set eyes. Because of the defined brow bone, it can sometimes look like you have smaller eyes and make your under eye area look darker. 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

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 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.
