Eye see a correction is in order. Not every one is blessed with almond-shaped eyes and symmetrical eyebrows! Some of us need a little corrective help with our wonky, close-set eyes or wide apart eyes, thank goodness make-up artists have found a way to almost create an optical illusion of perfection.
Note: A darker shade is camouflaging or disguising an area and a lighter shade is highlighting an area.
Protruding eyes (This type of eye has a bulge from the socket to the eye lid)- Apply a light colour such as vanilla all over the eye as a base. Use an eye liner to define the eyes with a slight extension at the sides. From this use a round tip brush to apply a dark colour of your choice, continue with a secondary dark colour and fill in to the eye line.Highlight the brow bone.
Deep set eyes (Eyes are set deep into the socket with a small eyelid. The brow bone appears more noticeable)- Apply a light coloured shadow all over the lid to accentuate the eyes and a slightly darker shade can be applied to the extreme outer corner and blended upwards and outwards.
Wide set eyes (Your eyes are more than one eye width apart)- To create the illusion your eyes are closer together you need to apply a darker shade nearer the inner part of the eye and gradually going lighter towards the outer part.
Close set eyes (Your eyes are less than one eye-width apart)- The eyes can look smaller as they are closer together, so apply highlighter to the inner corners of the eyes and use other colours upwards and outwards.
