Deep-Set Eyes

Suggested steps for correction of these types of eyes are:

  1. Use a light pencil on the inside rim of the eyes.
  2. Apply light, glazed shadow on the eyelid, slightly darkening the area above.
  3. Outline the outer extreme of the eye.

Protruding Eyes

Suggest steps for correction of these types of eyes are:

  1. Eyeliner must be dark and thick.
  2. Use a dark pencil on the inside of the eyes.
  3. Apply a dark, matte shade to the lid and light ones just below the brows.
  4. Use a lot of mascara on the eyelashes.
  5. Widen brows in proportion to the eye.

Close Set Eyes

Suggested steps for these types of eyes are:

  1. Sketch a line on the eyes with the dark shadow, starting halfway and extending until the outer corner.
  2. Use ivory on the inside rim of the eye and dark pencils on the outside.
  3. Use a lot of mascara on the upper and lower lashes.

Wide Set Eyes

Suggested steps for these types of eyes are:

  1. Use a dark shadow to draw a thicker line on the inside and thin out toward the outside.
  2. Use dark eye shadows on the inside, smudged outwards and light-tone shadows on the outside.
  3. Intensify the eyes with mascara focusing on the inner lashes closest the nose.

Round Eyes

Suggested steps for these types of eyes are:

  1. Make a line with dark shades on both the eye lid and along the lower lash line, making sure that the lines are slightly horizontal and long. Smudge the lines and then clarify with an eyeliner.
  2. Apply light-toned shadows under the eyebrows and dark ones from the tear ducts to the temple in a slanted angle.
  3. Intensify the eyes with mascara, focusing on the middle and outer lashes.

Down Turned Eyes

*It is important to avoid descending lines* Suggested steps for these types of eyes are:

  1. Make a thin line from the tear duct and slope the ending upwards creating a thicker line on the outer corners of the eyes. Do not go past the lid.
  2. Place light shadows on the inner corner of the eye and darker shadows on the outside.
  3. Apply a large quantity of mascara, extending the outer lashes.
  4. Give a point of luminosity on the eyebrow arch with a metallic or shimmer tone.

Small Eyes

Suggested steps for these types of eyes are:

  • Apply light shadows on the upper lid.
  • Create a slight dark shading over the eye fold.
  • Line the eye above and below.
  • Apply a lot of mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

The use of glasses should not be an impediment for makeup, but this should be adapted to different scenarios.

Short-Sighted Vision

The eyes appear smaller than they really are, so it would be necessary to enlarge them with makeup.

Use light-toned colors under the brow bones and on the insides with dark tones from the middle of the eye and outward.

The eyeliner should be applied thin on the inner corner of the eye and become thicker toward the outside corners.

Long-Sighted Vision

In this case, the lens enlarges and deforms the eye.

Use dark shadows on the lid and smudged into the crease. Avoid shimmers and metallics on the eyes.

Line the eyes with a dark pencil and apply mascara softly.

Remember that practice makes perfect. For in-person makeup lessons, use the contact page.
