Eyeshadow Illusions: Creating a Different Eye Shape

Eyeshadow is one of the most important makeup. In fact, it’s so important that without it, your makeup would look entirely off. As we all know, our eyes are the windows to our soul (as the old adage goes) and with eyeshadow, it can make our eyes look more prominent. Thus, using this cosmetic can make our eye look beautiful and people would notice our eyes first.

Aside from that, eyeshadow can actually make an illusion. If, for example, you think your eyes look too small, this cosmetic can make your eyes appear bigger or wider. Same goes when you think your eyes look big, it can make your eyes look smaller. Furthermore, it can also make an illusion of making your eyes look farther apart or closer together. So you see, eyeshadow is more than just a cosmetic to highlight your eyes; it can actually make or break your overall look.

I’m pretty sure most people who does makeup regularly have mastered applying this amazing cosmetic to make your eyes look more beautiful. But have you ever tried using it to create a different eye shape? If you haven’t yet, here are some tricks you should know:

Softening Protruding Eyes


For those who are conscious of their “protruding” eyes, don’t be. There are many beautiful celebrities out there who have the same eyes as yours. Notable celebs with protruding include: Amanda Seyfried , Mila Kunis, and Nicole Richie and they all look fabulous, right? If, however, you’d want to make your eyes appear smaller and sexier, here’s what you can do: Apply dark eyeshadow all over the lid, then smudge on the lower lashline. This will soften your eyes and make your eyes look dreamy.

Elongating Round, Narrow Eyes


Miranda Kerr,¬†Zooey Deschanel, Katy Perry, Scarlet Johansson, and many other celebs happen to have round, narrow eyes and they seem to flaunt them anyway they could. So why should you be even bothered by those lovely peepers? But if you really want to elongate your round eyes, here’s what you can do: Smoke out the outer corners of your eyes, while keeping the inner corners light. This will create an illusion of longer eyes as it will separate the inner and outer halves of your eye.

Adding A Deeper Crease On Hooded Eyes


Many Asian women have hooded eyes; but do you know any non-Asian celebrities who has a set of hooded eyes? Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, Taylor Swift, and Kate Moss to name a few. If you have the same and you’d like them to have a deeper crease, here’s what to do: Apply a dark eyeshadow all over the lid. Then, put a little of a lighter color a little above the fold. Finish it off by blending over them with a light, shimmery eyeshadow. This will make the creases on your eyes look more prominent, even when you open your eyes.
