If you want your eye make-up to impress and awe, you simply have to take into consideration the shape and size of your eyes, as well as whether the fold of your eyelid is visible or not.

Standard rules for applying eye makeup:

– In order to create the illusion of almond-shaped eyes with a visible eyelid fold, place the deepest tone in the outer corner of the lid with strokes that go up toward the fold. The inner half of the eyelid should be colored in a lighter tone.

– If you have small eyes with a small fold and you want to use dark tones, then keep the dark shadows close to the line of the lashes and add a lighter tone below the eyebrows to open up the eye.

– If your eyes are large, then wear the deepest tone in the middle of the eyelid.

– Use dark tones for large eyelids. This will visually shrink them and create a sense of depth.

– If your eyelids are small, then use light colors to optically expand them.

– If your lids do not have a visible fold, use black or blue shadows applying them only to the lower part of the lid close to the line of the lashes.
