Hi I'm Jhizet Panosian, celebrity makeup artist and today I'm going to show you how to put makeup on heavy eyelids. As you can see on Ingrid her eyelid is a little heavier on the corners so we're going to create an illusion of a very lifted effect. To do this today I'm going to use L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Lengthening Mascara. For my first step I'm going to use a rosy eyeshadow with a small fluffy eyeshadow brush and apply it all over her lid. And I've already prepped her skin with some moisturizer, foundation and a light powder to really get her ready for the application. You can take that all the way up to the brow bone. You want to pay attention to one thing when it comes to the lids on your eyebrows. You don't want to arch your eyebrows too much because that's just going to add to the heaviness of your lid. You want to shape your brows naturally and fill them in a little bit if they're too thin. Now that I've applied my eyeshadow I'm going to go in with a deep chocolate eyeliner and line her top lash. I'm going to start in the center and with small strokes work outward and you really want to pay attention here on where you extend your line. Again since we're trying to achieve a lifted look, you don't want to droop it down, you don't want to stop at the lash line, feel free to extend the line up because you want to give that lifted effect to the eye and we're going to come back through and do that with that eyeshadow. It doesn't have to be a cat eye and then I'm going to come in and carry that line lightly into the inner corner. Now that I've lined both of her lids, I'm going to create a fake crease above her natural crease to give the illusion of a lifted lid. I'm going to start above her natural crease and work outward and really buff and blend in small circular motions working up. Again you want to think of this direction with every placement because you want a lifted effect. Now that I'm done with eyeshadows I'm going to curl her lashes to give her a wider eye. You just want to grab at the edge of the lashes and squeeze it a few times, release, work it up halfway in the lashes, squeeze a few more times and do it one more time working to the edge of the lashes, squeezing a few more times. And you can already see the difference between the two eyes and how much more lifted this one looks. Next I'm going to go ahead and apply the mascara to her top lashes and you want to use a lengthening mascara with lengthening properties because it's just going to give your lashes a little bit of an extension and you want to work the product rocking it back and forth from the root of the lashes all the way to the edge. And you can already see with just one coat of mascara, the big difference it makes. And there you go. And that's how to put makeup on heavy eyelids. I'm Jhizet Panosian and thanks for watching.
