Hi, I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup expert. And today, I'm going to show you how to apply eye makeup for different eye types. As you can see, our model here has more of an almond shaped eye, it's a bigger eye. So, we're going to start with a natural color. I'm going to go with this greenish brown for the bottom. You always want to go with your darkest color over the eyelid, and work your way from the inner corner, all the way to the end. It's personal preference how high you want to go along the eye, I'm just going to stay along the lid. Make sure it's all applied evenly, you don't want it thinner or thicker in any area. Just a nice, thin coat. Next, I'm going to go with this mauvey brown type color. This is going to help to open up her eyes, since they are almond shape. We don't have to do too much, because she has beautiful, big brown eyes. So, we're going to stay natural. We're going to apply that color along the arch of the crease. And, along the eyebrow bone, I'm going to go with a natural off-white color. Okay. Next, I'm going to add a charcoal colored eyeliner just along the lash bone on top here. I prefer to apply it with a brush, it's a lot softer, it doesn't go on so harsh, just creates a small eye opening look. This will help to accent her almond shape eye. And, we're going to top off this look with a mascara. I prefer Clinique, they have great, great mascara. This is a waterproof. And, look up for me. Okay. And, that is how to apply eye makeup for different eye shapes. I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup expert.
