Enhancing the Eyes: Part II

By  | 

Welcome back #Podozians!

I am sure you are as excited as I am about this post. You must have been asking yourselves, what is my eye shape? When will she post it?

Is the crease on your eyelid visible? If yes, you have hooded eyes. Hooded eyes feature an extra layer of skin that droops over the crease, causing the lid to appear smaller. The rule is to Line your entire upper lash line using a thin line and do the same to the lower lash line beginning from outer eye corner to the inner eye corner. Let the eyeliner you have applied to be as close to your eyelashes base as possible. Try to line your upper inner eye rims too to help your eyelashes to look much thicker. I recommend that you try the  best brands of liquid eyeliner as a pencil or gel eyeliner will transfer their color to your eye hoods when you open wide your eyes. I recommend the Milani High Tech Liquid Eye Liner.

If the crease isn’t visible. You have round eyes. Round eyes refers to the type of eyes whose width and height is nearly the same. These eye types can be very sexy and attractive if you know how to use makeup correctly because these eye types are actually adorable and crazily beautiful. The general rule is to apply eyeliner on your outer eye corners while leavng the inner eye corners untouched to draw attention to the outer eye corners. This will help your eyes to look wider and less round. I suggest the BH Party Girl Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Pencils.

Wide set eyes or far apart eyes refer to eyes, which are more than an eyeball apart i.e they can actually have a third eyeball. This eye types tend to make someone to look youthful and much more open in their appearance. To enhance this type of eyes, you will have to apply eyeliner on your upper and lower lash line. To do so, apply eyeliner only towards the outer lash line using a thin soft stroke.  One tip for using eyeliner is to use white eyeliner on your inner eye rims to help open them up and not to overwhelm them. The Oriflame Very Me Double-Night Glow is perfect for this.

Close-set eyes tend to have distance or space between the two eyes which is smaller than the width of one eye (less than an eyeball apart). These people are characteristically found with narrow noses (slender nose). When applying eyeliner to enhance this type of eyes, you need to apply it both on your top and lower eyelids but from outer eye corner to midway your iris. You can create winged or cat eye looks. The Oriflame Bold Impack Kajal Eyeliner is what I will recommend for this.
