Eye shadow Techniques for all Eye Shapes

Not sure how to shadow? Here you go!

Almond eyes: Accent this perfect eye shape by concentrating a warm, mid-tone to the crease

Round eyes: Blending the shadow beyond the outer corners of the eyes will lengthen this shape. Create a cat eye with liquid eyeliner to further elongate the eye.

Close-set eyes: Create space by applying a highlighter color to the inner corners of the eyes, near the bridge of the nose. Adding a few individual eye lashes to the outer third of the eye will draw attention outward.

Slanted mono-lid: Rather than attempting to create a cut crease, it is best to concentrate color along the eyelash line by blending upward towards the crease. Highlight the eyebrow bone to create more dimension.

Full eyes: Minimize the most prominent part of the eye by concentrating the deepest shadow color at the center of the eyelid, carrying it just past the crease.

Small eyes: To make small eyes appear larger, extend the lightest shadow slightly above the upper eyelash line.
