Woman! Give those Eyes a Great Feel. See Tips



The main thing you have to remember when you are choosing your eyeshadow colors is that dark colors deepen
the eyes and that light colors will make your eyes stand out. Choose the right colors for your face and eye type
and have some q-tips near you in case you mess something up.
There are different types of faces and eyes and for each one there is a different technique that you should use
to make your face look more appealing:
Wide-set eyes: on wide set eyes you use the dark tone in from the inside corner of the eyelid to the middle of
the eyelid and apply the light tone from the center to the outside of the eyelids.
Close-set eyes: if you have close set eyes you have to apply the dark tone of the eyeshadow from the centre to
the outside of your eyelides and go beyond the outre corner. Then apply a lighter color from the center to the
inside of the eyelid.
Droopy eyes: if you have droopy eyes then you have to apply the darker tone on your eyelid and go upwards in a
wing shape. Use the highlight tone under your eyebrows.
Big eyes: In this case you apply the dark eyeshadow tone going outwards and a little bit upwards on the eyelid.
The highlight should be just under the eyebrows with a lighter color.
Small eyes: If you have small eyes then you apply the darker tone of eyeshadow on the socket of the eye and
the upper part of the eyelid. On the lid you should use a lighter tone of eyeshadow and highlight under the

How to Apply Eyeshadow for your Eye Color

When you are applying eyeshadow you can use different eyeshadow colors to bring out the color of your eyes.
You can either match your eye color or you can contrast it, start out by trying out different colors to see how
they go with your eyes.
When you are applying eyeshadow you have to choose and apply the highlight color carefully because you want to
complete the makeup effect your are trying to achieve. Like I said before, blending is crucial, blend the outside
edge of the crease to make your eyes look bigger, be careful because if your highlighter is too close then you
may end up with eyes that look like beads. Don’t put eyeshadow on your brow bones because it is exaggerated,
keep it simple and put color up to the bone but not on it.
