Playing around with eye makeup for round eyes is easier than easy. The thing is, that this shape is already advantageous since your eyes are big and charming. Yet, in case this fact bothers you – you can always make them look smaller, the hack is to use a black liner. You can apply black liner to top and bottom of your eye, as well as to your inner eye top and bottom, and that will grant you that desired smaller-eye look. As you may have already guessed, to make your eyes look even bigger, you should add some white or beige liner to your waterline.

When you decide that you want to play around with some eyeshadow, you should keep in mind that placing the shadow over your lid and close to your lash line is all that you need, let the lower lash line be more neutral, so that you do not take your makeup over the edge.

One more thing, the smokey eye is classy, but spice it up with a few dark shades and you will get that perfectly sassy, wide-eyed look, many dream of!

Among all the eye shapes, ladies with close-set eyes desire same – to make the distance seem bigger. To tell you the truth, we happen to know how you can achieve that. The core of your makeup lies in keeping the distance, that is why you should pay special attention to your inner corners, they should be light-shadowed, but no one says that you should avoid shimmer, it is even a better choice. After that, you should pay attention to the way you blend your shadows, they should evenly transform from darker to lighter shades as you proceed from your inner eye corner to the outer one.

While you can use liner over your upper lid, try to stay clear of dark liners when it comes to the lower lash line. Instead, we would suggest you to add some neutral or light, shimmery shades to the bottom. Mascara is also very important here, sometimes even a few falsies added to your outer corner would be a more than nice move.

When playing around with eye shapes such as wide-set eyes you would definitely like to use all that distance to your advantage but without unnecessary emphasis. Stay clear of shimmery shaded added to your inner eye corners, but you can introduce some darker shades to shorten the distance.

Also, with this shape it is very important to pay special attention to your nose, nose contorting is a must. As for the cat eye makeup, make sure that you do not go too far, shorter and more vertical cat eye is what goes best with your shape.

The trick with deep-set eyes is to apply your makeup so that it brings them forward. Applying light color to your lid and a warm color under your brow bone is the best way to create that necessary dimension. What is more, it would be a nice suggestion to divide your lid into three sections, the one with the light shade, the one with the dark and the one the blends the two.

As you may have guessed closer to your inner corner the light shades should be applied, closer to your outer corner – dark ones, and right in the middle, you should blend them well. The trick with your liner is that you should make it the thickest at the outer corner. Besides, you should never underestimate the power of mascara, but only when it comes to your upper lid, do not attract unnecessary attention to your lower lash line.
