Best Looks for Different Eye Types

Just as knowing how to dress for your body shape can guide your fashion choices, the eyes can be enhanced by using a make-up application that compliments your particular eye shape.

Hooded Eyes

hooded eyes– Natural crease appears hidden
– Less visible lid

Best Day Look:
To enhance visible lid space, sweep a light shade across the entire lid. Blend a medium shade to crease, diffusing upwards. Line your upper lashline with a dark matte shade, blending upward.

Best Night Look:
To give your eye more distinction, apply a light shade to brow bone and inner corner. Apply a medium shade across the entire lid, blending upwards above the crease. To make your eye look bigger, thinly line your upper lashline with a dark matte shade, diffusing upwards at outer corner.

Monolid Eyes

monolid eyes– Little to no crease and less define brow bone
– Common in Asian eyes

Best Day Look:
Sweep a light shade across the entire lid. Apply medium shade above lid and contour. Line your upper lashline with a dark matte shade to accentuate and define the eye

Best Night Look:
Sweep a light matte shade across the brow bone. Apply a medium shimmer shade to the entire lid. Line your upper lashline with a dark shade, diffusing upward to create definition, with a thinner line at the lower lashline.

Upturned Eyes

upturned eyes– Natural upward lift at the outer corner of the eye
– Visible lid area

Best Day Look:
To enhance the lid surface, divide your eye area in half vertically and apply a light shade to the inner half. Apply a medium shade to the inner half. Line the outer corner of your upper and lower lashlines with a dark shade.

Best Night Look:
Apply a light matte shade to your brown bone. Sweep a light shimmer shade to your lid and to your inner corner. Line your upper and lower lashlines with a medium shade and blend. To even out proportions, line the outer corner of your eye with a dark shimmer shade, blending outward. For more defined look, apply a thicker line at the outer corner of your lower lashline.

Downturned Eyes

downturned eyes– Slight drop at the outer corner of the eye
– Perfect for any eye liner look, especially the cat eye look

Best Day Look:
Sweep a light shade across your lid and to the inner corner. Apply a medium shade to the outer crease to “lift” the outer corners. Line the outer corner of your upper lashline with a dark matter shade.

Best Night Look:
Sweep a light shimmer shade across your lids. Apply a medium shade to crease, blending upwards. Line the entire upper lashline with a dark shade, extending out and up to create a cat-eye effect. For more defined look, do not line your lower lashline.

Round Eyes

round eyes– Larger and rounder
– More whites of eyes are visible

Best Day Look:
Sweep a light shade across your lids. Apply a medium shade to the outer corner of the upper and lower lashline. Use a dark shade to line your upper lashline, extending out and up at the outer corner to elongate width of your eye.

Best Night Look:
Apply a dark shimmer close to your upper lashline and blend upwards. Sweep a medium shade across the crease. Line the entire upper lashline with a black shade to accentuate your round eyes.

Almond Eyes

almond eyes– Shape like an almond
– Perfectly symmetrical with slightly upswept outer corners

Best Day Look:
Sweep a light shade across the entire lid. Apply a medium shade to the outer corner of your eyes to add depth and make your eyes pop. Line the upper and lower lashlines with a dark shade.

Best Night Look:
Apply a light matte shade to the brow bone. Sweep a light shade across the entire lid. To add definition, apply a medium shade in a V-shape along upper lashline and crease. Accentuate the outer corner of the eye with a dark shimmer shade. For the eye to appear larger, tightly line the upper lashline only with a dark matter shade.

*If you wear glasses, think about how your glasses look with your eye makeup. A general rule of thumb is to wear bolder, brighter eye colors with lightweight, transparent frames. If you wear heavier frames, think about toning down your eye makeup. *

Have fun, and remember, it’s just makeup!
