Contouring your eyes can seem confusing at first, but it’s actually really easy! To get the most out of contouring your eyes, you need to understand which parts of your eye shape need to be enhanced and which parts need to be minimized. This article will show you how to use professional makeup kits for color placement to highlight and balance your eyes according to their unique shapes.
This is the most common eye shape. Almond eyes have an up-turned pointed shape and are slightly wider at the top than the bottom. Use a darker shade than your skin tone under the crease to create the illusion of more almond-shaped eyes and a color one shade lighter on your brow bone to brighten up the eye area.
With big eyes, using colors that contour the eye inward and down into the center of your face, will do the trick. This means you’ll want to apply a deeper shade along the lash line and a lighter shade all across your eyelid.
With a smaller eye shape contour, you definitely don’t want to draw attention to the fact that your eyes are small! To do this, use a color close to your skin tone on the lid and a darker color along the lash line. You can also use a highlighter on the brow bone to open up the eyes.
To contour round eyes, you’ll want to use colors that will help create a more angular look. This means using darker colors on the outer corners of the eye and lighter colors on the inner corners. You can also use a highlighter on the brow bone to emphasize the shape of your eyes.
Hooded eyes have a lot of extra skin that droops over the lid, making them look smaller, so the best way to contour hooded eyes is to use light colors to make the eyes pop and darker colors to define the crease. You can also use a highlighter on the brow bone to emphasize the shape of your eyes.
This shape is becoming increasingly popular, thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian. The best way to contour mono-lid eyes is to use a light color on the lid and a darker color along the lash line since there’s no crease. You can also use a highlighter on the brow bone to emphasize the shape of your eyes.
