Makeup 101 – Eyexquisite

Your eyes, they say, show the strength of your soul. And that strength comes almond, hooded, oval or round shaped. A little bit of eye makeup can go a long way in accentuating your beautiful eyes adding a little bit of mystery and allure.

The key lies in understanding what is the best style of eye makeup to maximize the beauty of your eyes.

If you’re an almond eyed beauty: Your eye shape is characterized by an upswept outer corner. If you have narrow almond eyes, you may want to make it appear larger. In that case, apply your eye liner around the outer portion of the top lid. To make almond eyes appear more round, stop liner before the outer corner of the eye, use a lighter shade of eye shadow or create a smoky, smudged look in that area. If you want to increase the depth and intensity of your  eyes, experiment with eyeliner as a bold sweep on the upper lid and neutral colors lining under the eye

If you’re a round eyed beauty: This eye shape is often large and open looking. Many women like to use makeup to elongate the eye. Extend your eyeliner beyond the eyelid at the outer corners and use a medium shade of eye shadow to create this illusion.

If you’re a small eyed beauty: Oval eyes, downturned eyes, hooded eyes are usually on the smaller side. If you want to open it up and create an illusion of more height, use your eyeliner to create a thin line at the outer corner and gradually thicken it towards the middle of the eye. Reduce it again to a fine line as you approach the inner corner. You could also draw a very fine line under the lower lashes if desired.

So those were a couple of makeup tricks to enhance the beauty of your eyes. But like Sophia Loren says, “Beauty is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes” So stay beautiful, stay glam and gorgeous!
