Try using two different shades of eye shadow from the same color family to achieve instant dimension. Apply the lighter color along the base of your eyelid and a darker color at the crease to add facial dimension. If you are using liquid eye liner, dap between the lashes to fill in any sparse spots.
If you want to emphasize the widest part of the eye, apply a thicker line on top of the lashes, and then fade the color toward the sides. Keeping the color more focused on the higher and lowest point of the eye to emphasize the widest eye section.
To emphasize the contour of the eye, only apply the eye liner to the end of the natural eye crease. Concentrate the eye shadow in the middle of the lash line to achieve a more doe-eyed look.
Do not put eyeliner under the eye, but place it on the waterline; then, follow-up with a blending blush to add the eye shadow to achieve that smoky look.
If you have droopy eye lids, double up the mascara on the upper lashes. An angled brush will make this task easier.
