Makeup artists have been doing this for years. In order to decide where to apply what, they’ll first consider lid shape and size and which direction to angle your liner in to emphasise and celebrate your eye shape.
Before you go about creating an eye makeup masterpiece, it’s a good idea to consider which shape you have and how you can best dress them to accentuate your eyes as much as possible.
Variety is the spice of life which is why we love all the beautiful eye shapes, which include almond, hooded, round, monolid, upturned, downturned. The question is, how do you know which applies to you? And what’s the best way to bring them out?
