How to Apply Makeup to Small Almond Shaped Eyes

Women with small eyes often wish they could have the doe-eyed look of many celebrities. Yet, the secret to super sexy eyes seems to be only revealed to the select few. Those of us at home often try to get this result, but only meet with failure. This needn't be the case any longer. You can have eye-popping results by applying your makeup correctly.

Things You'll Need

  • Light neutral eyeshadow
  • Eyeshadow brush
  • Eyeliner
  • Mirror

Instructions

    • 1

      Choose colors. To make eyes look larger, you should use colors that are light and soft. Dark and vibrant colors make the eyes look smaller, and clash with most skin tones. Light shades of browns and grays work best.

    • 2

      Lay your finger across the crease of your eye. The tip of your finger will touch your nose. This defines the section where you will apply the eyeshadow. You will place the shadow at and below the line made with your finger.

    • 3

      Apply the eyeshadow using a sweeping motion with the brush. The brush should be about the size of a fingernail. The eyeshadow should start under the crease and stop at the lash line.

    • 4

      Refill your brush and reapply. This time you want to color the corner of your eye nearest the nose, and extend the shadow approximately 1/4 inch past the outer corner of the eye. This creates a longer and wider eye.

    • 5

      Apply a soft liner. If you wish to use liner, use a soft color. Again, grays, browns and greens work best. Apply only to the upper lid along the lash line, and extend out slightly from the outer edge.

Tips & Warnings

  • Play around with colors and shades to find a perfect match.
  • Keep eye makeup remover on hand to clean up mistakes. Practice with colors and application a few days before going out.
