Hi, I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup expert, and today I'm going to show you how to apply eye makeup for small eyes. As you can see, on our model, she has smaller eyes. So, what we're going to do, is we're going to start with an earthy brown on the bottom. As we do want this to look natural and we do want to enhance her eyes and open them a little more. So, you're going to cover the eyelid from the inner corner, all the way to the end, on both sides. Next, I'm going to use more of a mauve dark purplish. We're going to keep this in the center of the eye. It's actually going to create an opening effect, once we're finished. So, we're going to keep that in the center. Make sure to blend it in with the original shadow on the lid, as we don't want it to look unnatural. Take it all the way to the corner. And final, I'm going to use more of a white on the top. This will give the final eye popping effect for smaller eyes. All the way to the end, make sure to blend it with the center color we used. To top if off, I'm going to use a light mascara. Start with the top lids and then, the bottom. Be careful with the bottom lashes, you don't want to smudge. There we go, that is how to apply makeup for small eyes. I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup expert.
