EYE MAKEUP TIPS and TRICKS - Applying Eye Shadow or Eyeliner to create ILLUSION

A few simple techniques using eye shadow or eyeliner can dramatically affect the look and shape of your eyes. An eye pencil can be used instead of eyeliner for the same effect.

How to make your eyes look BIGGER?

Remember, light tones protrude, so you want to bring light to your eyes. Stroke a neutral shadow in a light shade in the crease of your lid above your iris. If you want color, stroke the neutral on first-bone, vanilla, taupe-and then layer the color on top. It lights up the eye as if there were a lightbulb behind the lid. Or stroke a light color on the lids, with a darker color in the crease and along the upper and lower lash lines. Or use eyeliner to follow the natural shape of the eye
and draw a fine line at the base of the upper and lower lashes to give your eyes more definition.

How to make your eyes look MORE OVAL?

Draw a fine line at the base of the lashes. Thicken it slightly in the middle of the lid, and draw it toward the outer corner to make your eyes appear more oval.

How to make your eyes look ROUNDER?

Put eye shadow all around the edges of the upper and lower lids to make your eyes look rounder. Or use eyeliner to outline the eyes at the base of the lashes. As you move toward the outer corner, thicken and "wing" the line upward ever so slightly.

How to make your eyes look CLOSER TOGETHER?

Stroke a light or medium neutral shade of eye shadow on the inner corner of your eyelids. Or use eyeliner to draw the line a bit thicker
on the inner corner of the eye and stop the line where the outer corner of the eye stops.

How to make your eyes look FURTHER APART?

Take a matte shadow in a darker shade and stroke it outward and slightly upward, on the outer corners of the top and bottom lids. Or use eyeliner and start the line just a bit away from the inner corner of your eye. Make it slightly thicker toward the outer edge and extend it in a slightly upward curve.
