Tired of following TikTok makeup tutorial step by step, but still getting a totally different look? It is crucial to understand the reason behind each step. Eyeshadow is not simply about stacking different shades together. Mastering the eyeshadow application skill can add more dimension to your eyes, enhance eye shapes, making your eyes more captivating.
First, lets start with different eye shapes. Understanding your eye shapes is the key to create your one of kind personalized and flattering look.
Forward shift method: Intensify shadow color at inner upper lid and lower outer lid. That way, it lifts inner eyes up to create balance.
For upper eyeliners, avoid flicking it upward. The lines should be thicker in the inner corner and gradually thin out.
Downturned Eyes (Drooping eyes):
Backward shift method: Intensify shadow color at outer corner. The darkest shade should be applied from the highest point of your eye to the end point. For inner corner eyeliners, tightline along the lash line can help pull it lower.
Conceal the indentation at outer corners to give it a lift effect.
Apply shadow to a large region to reduce puffiness. Use a small brush to apply darker shade to the area just above the crease to create more depth.
Add contour to under eye fat to helps draw attention away from upper eyelid.
Apply highlighter or light concealer to nose root and brow bone to add more dimension.
Tightline along the inner corner of upper lash line.
Deep Set Eyes
Apply eye primers or concealers to the lid to even out skin color. The transition color should only be a little bit darker than your natural skin color, and should be applied and blended within crease. Add some shimmers to your upper eye lids to bring your eyes forward.
Eyeliner should be subtle and tight along lash lines.
Start from the inner corner and blend towards the middle of upper lid. Repeat the same on the outer corner. For eyeliners, start from outer rim of iris and extend a slanted line towards outer edge. Connect the line to the inner corner to form a wing.
To create more depth, use a dark brown shadow to blend it out along the wing line. Fill in soft eye liner from inner corner to the outer rim of iris. Trace the line to the outer corner, following the triangle shaped eyeshadow.
