Makeup Tips w/Missy – The Deep-Set Eyes

Don’t know whether you have deep-set eyes? Are your eyes sunk into the sockets, or are your lids heavy with a prominent browbone? When you look straight at yourself in the mirror with your eyes open, does your eyelid seem to disappear? You have deep-set eyes.

Apply a light shimmery shadow to your lid from lash line to crease (DON’T GO ABOVE YOUR CREASE!) The light color and the shimmer will bring your lid forward. You don’t want to bring your browbone forward or you’ll really make your eyes look sunken in. Use a matte shadow two shades darker than your skin tone to blend into your crease, keeping the emphasis on the outer corners of the eyes. Draw eyeliner along the upper lash line to just past the outer corner. Keep this line fine so you don’t lose lid space! Or try tight-lining. If applying liner to bottom lash line keep the emphasis on the outer corner coming in only one-third of the way. Now curl those lashes and apply 2-3 coats of mascara!
