Eyeshadow for Different Eye Shapes

     1. Downturned Eyes

If the outermost corner of your eyes looks downward, you have a downturned eye structure. You can draw tailed eyeliner to make your low eyes more upright.

There are two things that people with downturned eyes should pay attention to when applying eye makeup. First, you shouldn’t go above the crease line when applying eye makeup. When you spread your eye shadow too upward, your eye makeup will look too messy and uneven. My advice is to apply your eye shadow just above the eyelids, below the crease line.

The second point you should pay attention to is to stay away from dark eye shadows. You should use creamy light and sparkling eye shadows instead of dark colors. You can also use a bronze color. You can create ideal eye makeup by spreading your eye shadow from the middle of the eyelids towards the outer corners with your finger.

     2. Hooded Eyes

Even if the eye structure of some women is large, their eyes may appear smaller because their eyelids are low. In this case, it can be difficult to do eye makeup. If you have a hooded eyes you should spread your eye shadow to the brow bone to make the eyelid appear wider. You should use palettes that have vibrant colors. Mix bronze and crimson eye shadow color and apply to the eyelids. Get a bright look in your eyes by spreading the light bronze color to the brow bone.

     3. Almond Eyes

Almond eyes are one of the luckiest eye shapes. The almond eye shape is slightly upturned, just like an almond, neither a large nor a small eye structure. You should aim to make your almond eyes brighter and make your eyelids lighter. For this, take the lightest shimmering nude shadow in your eye shadow palette and apply it right over the eyelids.

Then, use a milky brown eye shadow to mix it thoroughly into the crease area of the eyelids and towards the outer corners. Make sure you use a clean eye shadow brush while doing this process. Those with almond eyes should stay away from very dark eye shadow colors. I do not recommend using colors darker than coffee with milk or similar shades.

     4. Round Eyes

The round eye shape is one of the most prone to makeup mistakes. Those with round eyes should aim to make their eyes look wider by contouring them while applying eye makeup. When applying eye makeup, you should make the focus point right in the middle of your eyes. Place the dark brown color in the center of your eyelids. Then distribute the lighter nude shadow from the same eye shadow palette to the inner and outer corners of the eyelids. The middle of the eye makeup should look darkest, the right and left lighter and brighter. After you get this image, your eyes will look more asymmetrical.

     5. Small Eyes
