Colors That Suit the Shape of Your Eyes

You’re preparing for a hot date and you would like to have not-so-heavy makeup, but still end up looking sultry. You could also be preparing for a big corporate event where you need to walk the red carpet. For this, you need to imitate the look given off by Hollywood celebrities during the awards-giving season. However, you have no idea about how to do your own makeup.

The good news is that you can always book an appointment at any of the beauty salons in your area and describe the look that you would like to have to your stylist. On the other hand, if you do not have time to visit beauty salons during the day of the event, you can simply focus on creating a dramatic eye makeup look – and arrive in style for the occasion.

Eye Makeup Tips for Every Face/Eye Shape

Even if you only want to have minimal makeup, a hot date or a red carpet event deserves something more dramatic. You can start off with a tinted moisturizer or a liquid foundation which matches the color of your skin. Even if you match the barely-there makeup with light blush and nude lips, you can still create a dramatic look by having stunning eye makeup.

For this, you need to know which makeup suits the shape of your eyes and face. Take a look at the following tips on how you can do just that:

– If you have almond eyes.

Look at yourself in the mirror and check on the shape of your eyes. If you have almond eyes like actresses Liv Tyler or Catherine Zeta-Jones, you can do pretty much any eye makeup that you feel like doing. The only thing to avoid is putting too much eyeliner on the upper lid, as this will make your eyes look heavier and smaller.

– If you have downturned eyes.

Downturned eyes have a downward angle at the outer corners – similar to the peepers of actress Katie Holmes. This kind of eye shape needs to give given a lift, so use heavy mascara and apply eyeliner with an upward twist on the outside.

– If you have heavy-lidded eyes.

If you have heavy-lidded eyes, you can play with colors a lot. The only thing that you need to be careful about is using too much mascara or eyeliner.

– If you have deep-set eyes.

For women with deep-set eyes like Demi Moore, you can also use lots of mascara. Also, try not to apply eyeliner on the water line to make your eyes more evenly set apart.

– If you have hooded eyes.

Lastly, if you have hooded eyes with a heavy lid – try not to go heavy on the eye makeup and focus on other aspects of your face instead.

For more ideas, look for specific types of eye makeup on the Internet so that you can imitate the look that you’d like to create – and look your best on the night of your event.
