Line 1. Eye shape: Are they round? Straight? Slanted? Almond? Look at the eyelashes and mentally draw on eyeliner. You’ll see it. Quick guideline? Whatever line you see, if you copy that application in your eye shadow (round eyes, round placement, etc.) you’ll automatically bring out the best in your eyes.
Line 2. Lid Space: How much lid space do you see? A little? A lot? None at all? Guidelines for the eyelid are, the whiter the area looks, the larger it’ll seem. The darker, the smaller. You decide how prominent you want it to look.
Line 3. Eye Bone: The space right underneath the eyebrows. You’ll be amazed at how different your eyes can look by just tweezing and cleaning up stray eyebrows in the area. The larger the ebony appears, the stronger the eyes seem.
Line 4. Eye space: How much space is between the eyes? Same here with eyebrows, just clean up abit and you’ll have wider set eyes in no time. Want them even wider? Start your eyebrow line right above the tear duct.
The basic guideline for eye shadow placement is the same as for eyebrows. Eye shadow ends right where the line from the outer eye to the outside corner of the eyebrow meet. If applied outside that line, it’ll look too smudged and you’ll be wiping off eye shadow subconsciously there cause it’ll look ‘off’. Eye shadow starts right above the tear duct (go any further in than that and you can look cross eyed.)
Key: Darker tones makes the area seem more dramatic and receding, lighter colors bring attention to, appear larger. Same old rules still apply.
Once we have the guidelines down, the fun part of makeup application begins.
