What is the best makeup for hooded, round & other eye shapes

You may have tried a new look for your eyes, but it didn’t look quite right, even if you followed the tutorial to the letter. Your eye shape could be the reason! We’ve outlined five neutral everyday looks that flatter the most common eye shapes in this LovelySkin post. These are suggestions. You can use them as a guide to create a look, or you can try a new technique. It’s important that you love your makeup and feel confident in it.

Round Eyes

The white of round eyes is often more prominent. You can use a dark shade to elongate and balance round eyes.

Apply a light eyeshadow all over your lids and extend it to your eyebrow bones. Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow shade Oyster is our favorite. This shade can be used on the inner corner. Apply a dark shade of eyeshadow in the crease to create a V-shaped shape on the outer corner. This darker shade can be used to line the bottom lash line. This will modernize your look and bring balance to it.

Eyeliner can be used to lengthen the eye by focusing on the outer corners. Imagine your eye has four sections. Draw a thin line only on the three-quarters of your eye. If you like, flick it out to create a winged effect. Add liner only to the outer part of the lower lash line. Leave the inner half untouched. Finish with one coat. Blue mascara is one of our favorite products. This formula does not paint on but instead forms a tube around each lash to create lush, voluminous lashes. The procedure is available in five shades, including Dark Blue and Dark Purple.

Almond Eyes

Almond eyes have a symmetrical shape, are similar to an almond, and can be slightly rounded at the corners. Almond eyes have the greatest versatility. Any makeup can accentuate them.

Start by applying a light shade of eyeshadow to the lid. Apply a medium color in a V-shape to the outer corner of the eyelid. This will add depth and highlight the upturn. You can choose to apply the same medium shade on the crease and then select a darker shape for the outer corners.

Try a gel in black or brown for eyeliner. Jane Iredale Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner is our favorite. You can use an angled eye brush like Glo Minerals Angled Eye Brush to create a thin line on both the upper and lower lash lines. If you want to make your eyes look bigger, line the upper lashline only. You can curl your eyelashes with an eyelash curler like Blinc Heat Lash Curler and finish off the look by applying two coats of mascara.

Hooded Eyes

The lid appears smaller when the extra skin folds down over the crease. The hooded eye may look like it has a squint. To counteract this, you can use a darker shade of eyeliner and emphasize the crease to give the illusion of a bigger, more balanced eye.

Apply the lightest shade only to the inner corners. Try GloEye Shadow Trio Sandstone for a stunning mini triple palette. Start with the lightest shade – a versatile nude. Then, select the medium shade to cover the entire lid. This shade can be applied liberally, as you will be adding a darker one. Then, use the darkest shade to your natural crease. Diffuse it just above so it’s visible when you open your eyes. This will create the illusion that your eye is rounder.

You can use a matte eyeshadow to create a soft look, or you can opt for a gel black formula. Apply liner along the upper lashline and diffuse it to the outer corners of the eyes. Curl lashes, then add mascara GloLash Lengthening Maskcara Black to complete the look.

Monolid Eyes

An epicanthic skin fold covers the inner corner of monolid eyes. There is very little or no crease visible. As with a hooded shape, we will focus on applying makeup to make the eye look more defined and open.

For this look, Jane Iredale PurePressed eye shadow Triple works well. The medium brown eyeshadow should be swept all over the lid and above the natural crease in an arched shape. Apply the darkest shade just above the medium brown in an arched form. Blend the two colors to eliminate any harsh lines. The lightest highlighter shade can be used to draw attention to your inner corners and brow bones.

Eyeliner can enhance the natural cat-eye shape of monolid eyes. You can use a black gel eyeliner with an angled brush and lightly flick out a line from the corner of your eye, following its natural shape. Start at the inner corner and line up close to your lash line. As you move closer to the outer corners, thicken the line to create the wing. Fill in any gaps that may exist between the lashline and the liner. Finish the look with two coats of mascara, both on top and bottom lashes.

Downturned eyes

The outer corners of the eyes that are downturned have a slight slope downward. They could benefit from a little lift to make them appear more alert and awake. This look will focus on eyeliner, which can help offset the drop in the outer corners of the eyes and enhance their shape.

Choose a liquid eyeliner. The liquid eyeliner will give you a more vibrant color and last all day. We love Jane-Iredale Liquid Eye Liner in Black or Black/Brown. You can create a cat-eye look by using the liner along the upper lashline and flicking it up at the end. Do not use eyeliner, eyeshadow, or any other eye makeup on the lower lash line. This will keep the attention focused on the eyes. Keep the mascara to finish off your look.
