Makeup Tips For Almond Eyes

Almond Eye Shape: The iris touches both the top and bottom eyelids when looking straight ahead.

Makeup Tips: Almond eyes are versatile and can carry any look effortlessly due to their balanced inner and outer corners. Enhance this shape by applying a light eyeshadow color like Urban Decay 24/7 Moondust Eyeshadow in Cosmic to the inner corners.

To create the illusion of bigger, more open eyes, avoid lining the entire lid and keep the outer corners free of makeup.

How to do Eye Makeup Step By Step

Applying eyeshadow might seem simple, but mastering eye makeup can be daunting. From selecting the right shades for your eye color and skin tone to choosing the appropriate brushes, there’s plenty to consider.

With countless options, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. That’s why we’ve crafted a detailed five-step guide to assist you in navigating eyeliners, mascaras, and shadows. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, our guide will help you craft captivating eye looks that enhance your natural beauty. Let’s delve into it:

Start With Great Makeup Brushes

Just as famous artists rely on quality brushes for their masterpieces, proper makeup application demands the right tools. Investing in good cosmetic brushes ensures even, precise, and hygienic makeup application. Fortunately, you don’t have to break the bank to get top-notch brushes.

Synthetic brushes are often preferred over natural-fiber ones. They’re more affordable, easier to clean, and allergy-friendly. In fact, all the top performers in our lab tests were synthetic, indistinguishable from pricier natural options.

Apply A Base Eyeshadow To The Lid

Using your eyeshadow brush, select your favorite shade from your eyeshadow palette and sweep it onto your eyelid as a base. Depending on your desired look, you can extend this base color all the way up to your brow bone for a dramatic smoky eye, or stop at the crease for a basic, everyday look.

For the latter, here’s a foolproof trick: apply the color into the crease of your eye while it’s open, then blend downward toward the lash line. This ensures you won’t overshoot your crease or create messy lines.

Concentrate Darker Shadow In The Eye Crease

Concentrate darker shadow in the eye crease to add depth and dimension to your eyes. Dark colors attract light, making your eyes pop in the right places.

To achieve this look, use a domed brush, such as the e.l.f. Blending Brush, to apply a dark shadow along the eye socket. Follow the natural curve of your eye, sweeping the shadow between your brow bone and eyelid. A deep brown shade like Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Thunderbird works well for all eye colors.

For those with hooded eyes, where the upper lid covers most of the mobile lid when open, adjust the placement of the crease shadow. Start by marking where you want the dark color to begin while your eyes are open. Then, close your eyes and blend across, focusing on the outermost corner of the eye in a “V” shape to ensure visibility and avoid the color disappearing when your eyes are open. Smooth out any harsh lines for a seamless finish.

Rim Your Lash Lines In A Super-Dark Color

Rim your lash lines with a super-dark color to make your lashes appear thicker. If you’re not fond of eyeliner, you can achieve a similar effect with a super-dark eyeshadow that’s easier to remove.

Using a flat, short-bristled brush, press the dark color along the edges of your upper eyelid where your eyelashes begin, and also along the lower lash line. If you prefer to line your waterline (the inner rim of the eye), consider using one of our recommended waterproof eyeliners, as the bristles of the brush may cause irritation.

Highlight With A Pretty Shimmery Shadow

To enhance your brows and create a lifted look, apply a shimmery pale eyeshadow or pencil directly under the brow. This will make your brows pop and add dimension. Additionally, apply the same pearly light color to the inner corner of the eye to brighten up your look. Finally, complete the look with a few coats of our recommended mascara.
