Brow bone/highlight

If you want your brows to pop and open up your eye area, you can add a matte or shimmery pale eyeshadow directly under the brow.


Generally, your main shade or shades of eyeshadow go on your eyelid.


Between your brow bone and eyelid, applying a darker shade of eyeshadow here, right along your eye socket, adds dimension to your eye.

Outer V

The outermost corner of the eye where eyeliner or deeper shades of eyeshadow are typically applied in a “V” shape, though you can blend your makeup into a “C” shape for a softer effect.

Upper lashline

Right along and above the edges of your upper eyelid where your eyelashes begin, you can define your eye with eyeliner or eyeshadow, or even simply mascara.

The inner rim of the eye, the waterline can be host to dark eyeliner to add a smokey look or pale nude eyeliner to make the eye look wider and more awake.

Lower lashline

Just below the waterline, your lower lashline is where liner and shadow can be applied to define the eyes.

Tear duct

This is the inner corner of the eye, and where you can add a little pale or shimmery shadow here to open things up.

Super cute sparkly look ✨👌💜 @rfadai
