Tips for Different Eye Shapes

Now that you've got the basic techniques down, it's time to get more advanced. Eyes come in a million shapes and sizes -- how would you describe yours? To design the best eye makeup for your own pretty peepers, try these optical illusions:

Deep Set

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.


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.


Use shimmery tones to bring light to the eyes. Avoid black at all costs -- it confines the eyes and looks too severe.


Lucky girl -- you can experiment with deep, warm tones. Keep mascara soft.
