Eye Shadow Tips

Updated on April 27, 2016

Makeup is an amazing finishing touch for any style that you’re sporting that day. It may give you confidence or it might just be fun. The two makeup sections that I get most questions about are contouring and eye shadow. Feel free to use the photos below for a visual

Small Eyes

The sides of the eyes are each dark. Then in the middle you will want to put a light colored eye shadow. Then at the very edges of each eye there should be no makeup at all or a lighter colored makeup, preferably white or peach pencil. The rest of the eyeliner should be a lighter color as well, such as a warm brown with a gold sparkle. Then you’re done.

Large Eyes

Make the outer sides of your eyebrows a lighter shade. For the eye shadow you will want to stick to dark colors and avoid anything light or frosty. It’s a great opportunity to do a darker smoky eye.

Droopy Eyes

I actually have droopy eyes myself. There is not much to it but it will make a huge difference. You will want the inner side of the eyebrow (closest to wear a uni brow would be created) to be darker. Then create a winged tip with your eyeliner.

Winged Eyeliner

Grab a stick, whether that is another makeup brush or a popsicle stick, really just anything that is straight. Put one end at the side of your nose and the other side at the edge of your eye and leave about an inch that is going past the eye. Then use the line to apply a perfect eyeliner wing. Then that’s it!

Deep Set Eyes

Use a Medium colored eye shadow on the entire brow, the only place that you will want to use something other than a medium color is along the crease. Apply a light color all along the crease and make sure to blend it. This will bring out the deep set eyes and make them pop. But don’t let the color be too frosty. Use a color that will compliment the medium dark color. Then take a lighter color along the lashes on the top and the bottom. Then you’re set

Eyes W/O a Crease

Apply dark coloring on the inside and outside of the eyes. Grab a new brush and then rub back and forth to blend it in. It should end up being lighter in the middle. And there you have it.

Bonus Tip: I personally love the color I use on my eyes to pop, not to mention last all day. To do this you will want to get a crème that will act as a primer. The crème can be white or skin toned. Then just place the makeup on top. Another way to make it pop is to use a crème color that is the same as your eye shadow. For instance if you are going to use blue eye shadow then use a blue crème first, but be careful because it is going to pop like crazy, but it’s a wonderful kind of crazy.

I hope you found this helpful!
