Video: "Reveal" The Look: 6 Makeup Techniques For Small Eyes
Celebrity makeup artist Alena Lapina in her column tells how to "open up" the look with the help of makeup.
1. Primer is our everything
The first rule and must be followed! Be sure to use an eyelid primer before applying eyeshadow. The skin of the eyelids is more moist, and if you have a drooping eyelid, additional safety net is needed for the stability of the make-up - thanks to this trick, the shadows will remain where they were laid.
2. Get inspired by smoky
Forget about the classic makeup scheme (with a darkened fold over the movable eyelid and outer corner). Instead, pay attention to the smoky eyes makeup scheme. That is, focus on the eye contour and smooth feathering on the eyelids.
3. Don't forget about the lower eyelid
Take your favorite palette, and focus on the lower eyelid, but only with smooth shading behind the eyelash contour. This creates an imitation of the shadow falling from the eyelashes.
Find the right texture
No mother of pearl! Instead of visually "drowning" the eyelid, pearlescent shadows will only accentuate the swelling.
4. Use mascara
Paint over both upper and lower eyelashes with mascara to visually "open" your eyes as wide as possible.
5. Carefully with arrows
I would advise you to avoid shooters altogether, but if you really want to, then draw them wide! And in any case, do not lower the tail of the arrow in the shape of the eye.
6. Keep your eyebrows in shape
And finally, the eyebrows. A properly chosen eyebrow shape can lift a heavily lowered eyelid and open very small eyes! Do not make your eyebrows straight - they should be "spaced" or slightly crooked.
