Dust entire eyelid with a light, pale, tone to bring the eyes forward. You can intensify color along the upper lashline with a medium tone, but it's best not to darken the crease.Narrow Set
Keep the application on the outer edges of the eyes, extending slightly beyond the outer corners.Wide Set
Begin the application at the inner corners of the eyes. Try to avoid going past the outer corners.Protruding
Choose tones with warmth and depth to make the eyes recede. Dust a medium tone over the entire eyelid. You can also add a deeper tone in the crease or at the lashlines.Small
Use shimmery tones to bring light to the eyes. Avoid black at all costs -- it confines the eyes and looks too severe.Large
Lucky girl -- you can experiment with deep, warm tones. Keep mascara soft.
