One of the best things you can do is Highlight your lid. God gave you a crease you don’t need to deepen it. So instead of hightlighting your brow bone like all the other eye shapes you want do put midtone on it. You are trying to push back your browbone and bring forward your lid. You also want to be very light handed with your accent color. Just on the very corner of your eye don’t bring very much into the crease. Demi or her make up artist 🙂 did a really good job in this picture. She is such a natural beauty I think. Deep set eyes can tend to be a hooded eye as you age so make sure you use a FABULOUS eye cream to help with wrinkles! Deep set eyes are beautiful help them guide them to be that way!
Check back for the Beautiful eye series in Mastering Makeup Mondays. I loved learning from International Makeup Artist Robert Jones and one of the first things I really tried to master was how to apply eye makeup for specific eye shapes. Today we will focus on the basic or sometimes people will refer to it as a standard eye. Either way you don’t have to tweek your eye shadow to make your eye look any way this is the ideal eye shape, or the eye shape most people want to make their eyes look like. A lot of people really forget the middle color the midtone it is usually the most boring of the three. But it makes the biggest difference! Highlight color should be skin colored or a shade or two lighter. The midtone is usually a shade of brown this shad is usually matte.
It makes a HUGE difference in a lot of eye shapes. It gives depth to your eye. You will be surprised how much more sophisticated your makeup looks when you use all three correctly. The accent color frames the outer part of your eye and if you choose the right color it can emphasis the color your eye as well. If you remember the blog post I did about choosing colors Go opposite of the color wheel if you want to make your eyes pop! Now that is not to say someone with blue eyes can’t wear blue but if you want to POP your blue eyes you shouldn’t 🙂 I just say don’t do it on a regular day basis 🙂 Hope you love my series. Check out for the next 5 or 6 weeks! Hope you enjoy if you have any questions please feel free to let me know!
Make your eyes sparkle like the celebrities do. I love doing this little trick because it looks great in photos. If you are getting married or doing any pictures I love doing this ALL the time. Of course I do because I LOVE makeup so I do it all the time but if you want to only on special occasions you can do that too. I think it makes a huge difference. When you highlight the inner corner of your eye it draws attention to that area. The only time you might not want to highlight there is if you have wide set eyes. because it kind of pushes your eyes apart a little visually. You should for sure do this EVERY day if you have close set eyes. Let mek now what you think try it a couple times and see if you or anyone else notices! 🙂 Happy Sparkling!
