If you have deep set eyes, choose light and nacreous tints of eyeshadows, it would help to make your eyes appear visually bigger. Apply light eyeshadows on your eyelid from the inner corner of your eye to the outer and a bit further. Light colors should be applied in the middle of the lid, and darker colors – on and just above the socket line. Blend the darker shade up and out.

You can visually reduce the range between your eyes if you apply a darker tint of eyeshadows from the outer corner of your eye to the middle of the eyelid. Apply a lighter eye shadow from the middle of your eyelid to the inner corner of your eye. Blend in different shades in the middle of the eyelid.

Close set eyes are those narrower than one eye width. Apply some corrector on the inner corners of both eyes. Using an eyeliner draw a very thin line with along the upper eyelashes so that it becomes thicker near the outer corner of your eyes. Apply a very thin layer of light eye-shadows from the inner corner of your eyes to the middle of your eyelid. Then apply eyeshadows of darker tints starting from the middle of your eyelid to the outer corner. Blend the colors in the middle of the eyelids. Use more mascara on the outer corners.

If you have Asian eyes, apply light eyeshadows on your eyelids. Use a pencil to make a thick smoky line along upper eyelashes (the line should be thick enough to be seen well when your eyes are open). Under the lower eyelashes draw a thinner line. In order to make your eyes visually wider apply brown eyeshadow on your eyebrows. Cover your eyelashes with two or three layers of dense mascara.

Eye Makeup for Those Wearing Spectacles

If the frame of your spectacles is bright, it is not necessary to add color with eyeshadows. It is better to pay attention to your eyelashes and put the accent on them. If you usually prefer brown mascara, try a black one. To give you eyelashes more volume and make them fluffy, use a dense mascara and apply it from the roots to the tips. Those wearing tortoise or horn-rimmed spectacles should find time and correct the shape of eyebrows and color them if it is necessary. It’s important that your eyebrows and eyes determine your face, but not the spectacles.

The Secret of Big Eyes

Shadows of dark shades make your eyes visually smaller, deep set, while light tints, on the contrary, make them appear bigger, “open them wider”. If you want to create the effect of big, beautiful eyes, choose light eyeshadows. Apply eyeshadows after the application of eye pencil or any other kind of eyeliner: it would make your look softer and dreamy. If you want to make your look more dramatic, apply eyeliner after the application of eye-shadows. Then curl your eyelashes, it would add them shape. Then finish your eye make-up with a layer of mascara. In order to add more volume to your eyelashes and to make them appear bigger use a dense mascara. Never line the inner edge of the lower eyelashes, it would make your eyes visually smaller.

    Hi, Claudia, try darker shadow shades and use dark eyeliner for the upper lids. You can apply the eyeliner just close to the lash line, starting from the inner corner. Always use black mascara, as it can “hide” the puffiness. As a rule, dark colors make things and body parts visually smaller.

    Also, drink less water and eat less salt, as these two ingredients often contribute to eye puffiness and swellings.

    For anyone reading in the future: Not drinking water is the VERY WORST thing you can do for any physical issues – especially those relating to the skin (swelling or not). Definitely decrease salt intake, as salt acts as a water-retention agent, but water is what we in the medical profesison refer to as the “forgotten vitamin;” many bodily functions/issues can be significantly improved by drinking plenty of water – and don’t worry about the myth that the more you drink the more you’ll have to pee; this is true for only the first few days, and then your body literally soaks up all that water and uses it where it needs it. (And by soaking it up I don’t mean that you’ll retain any of it uselessly – like in your eyelids…). Just wanted to add my two cents – other than that, I think the article was very informative; thanks for the tips.

  2. i have really big eyes, like really big. my friends always have eye shadow and eyeliner on. but, it never looks good on me so i go out to parties wearing no make-up at all. i hav bags under my eyes. but all i do is sleep, so i dnt even no how they go there. all i want is beautiful eyes. and there is no website that can help me. so im just putting this out there if there is anyone with the same problem?

  3. I LOVE your article!!! thank you very much!!! I’ve “asian” type of eyes and I always wanted to enhance them, wanted them to appear a bit bigger – I tried your tips with the green + yellowish Pupa eyeshadows (baked) and it looked fantastic!!! And I don’t feel bad because of the word “asian”. Should people with wide set eyes do? Or should those having close set eyes feel offended that it’s written here this way? That’s everything, but offensive. The author wanted to help you look better and have a nicer eye makeup based on your eye type!!! Is that bad???
