How To: Know Your Eye Shape

Almond shaped eyes are the most versatile shape to experiment with.

How To: Know Your Eye Shape

20 September 2013

Whether you think your eyes are too small, too big, too close or too far apart, you need to tweak your make-up to enhance your eyes' shape.

For almond shaped eyes like Aishwarya Rai- You can't really go wrong with this eye shape. Smoky shadows, graphic lines, bold colours -- feel free to play.

For downturned eyes like Katrina Kaif- if the outer corners of your eyes tend to droop a cat-eye with an exaggerated upward flick is the easiest way to offset the downturned shape.

For deep-set eyes like Sridevi-You don't need to contour the crease because it will be quite defined already.

For hooded eyes like Blake Lively- Most shadow styles work with this type of eye shape, but pay extra attention to your top lash line and lash base. Amp those up generously with volumizing mascara.

For close-set eyes like Kareena Kapoor-If the inner corners of your eyes are very close to the bridge of your nose, you need to focus on the outer corners.

For wide-set eyes like Alia Bhatt-Dark shades should be focused on the inner corners and blended out to lighter hues on the outer corners.

For prominent eyes like Deepika Padukone-  Contour subtly and use matte shadows close to your skin tone. Play up your lips with a bright pout to balance it out.
