Eyeshadow techniques for different eyes

Makeup is a complex part of grooming; and eye makeup is the most important part of your make up. There are several products you use on your eyes that include eyeliner, eyeshadows, kajal, mascara, and eyebrow liner. Here we will discuss how eyeshadows can be applied with several techniques for different eye types.

Round eyes

Women who have rounder eyes can highlight the brow bone by applying a light shade eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eyes. A medium shade eyeshadow on the center part of the lid and a darker shade of eyeshadow around the crease can give a perfect look to your round eyes.

Close-set eyes

Women with close set eyes can do away with two shades of eyeshadows – light and medium. Highlight the eyelid with the light shade and then add the medium shade to the out corners of the eyelids. Medium shade can be applied several more times to make it look slightly darker than the usual.

Deep-set eyes

The eyeshadow techniques used for deep-set eyes is similar to the techniques used for round eyes. However, the dark eyeshadow should be less lightly applied.

Almond eyes

If you have almond shapes eyes, you can actually use several techniques and even experiment a bit. This is because almond shaped eyes are the most symmetrical eye shapes and many different eyeshadow techniques can be used on them.

Hooded eyes

With hooded eyes, your eyes may look smaller as there is an extra layer of skin that covers the crease on your eyelid. You can use a lighter shade eyeshadow on the inner corners of your eyes and dark shade on the middle part of your eyelid and continue the shade to the outer part of your eyelids. This technique will make your eyes appear rounder.

Monolid eyes

People with monolid eyes can apply a darker shade eyeshadow on the on the entire eyelids and give it an ombré effect as you blend it onto the upper section of your eyelids.

Tip: Don’t forget to blend the shades you have applied on your eyes and blending is the most important part of eyeshadow techniques. The eyeshadow shades need to be seamless and hence blending is essential.
