Do you love eye makeup? Did you know that there are some impressive tips to suit your eye shape and make them look even more stunning? If you don't, you are in the right place. We will tell you how to determine your eye shape and what works for them.


It sounds a lot of work but trusts us, it is simple and hassle-free and is absolutely worth it. It is incredible to see how knowing the basics like the shape of your eyes can help you accentuate the highlighting features of your beauties and help you further enhance them using eyeshadow and liner. And we have fractionated the entire process for you right here so you can perk up your peepers - and soon you will know about these well-kept secrets too!!!

So Let's Start With Knowing Different Eye Shapes

1. THE ALMOND EYE

To know whether your eye is an almond eye or not all you need to do is see if they look like an almond: rounded in the middle and slopes into two points on either side. Almond Eye shape is the most commonly seen eye shape and has maximum flexibility when applying makeups.

EYESHADOW FOR YOUR EYES

We can not emphasize this enough that your eye type is a very versatile one and you can play along with simply anything. We still would like to give our two-cents and add a little bit of what we know. We recommend you to use one type of shade and surround your entire eye with it in an oval shape and add deeper shades on the outer corner of your eye on the top and bottom.

While your eye type is flexible in terms of make up the most suitable would be the cat-eye or Wingtip. We recommend you start thinner towards the inner corner and gradually thicken it towards the outer corner. This will highlight your upturned shape eyes.

Apply the eyeshadow and layer it with the eyeliner and you are all set!

2. THE ROUND EYE

To know if your eye shape is round all you need to do is ensure you can see your entire iris without being covered by the top and bottom eyelid. If so, congratulations you own a pair of beautiful round eyes!

If you want to flatten the shape of your eyes the aim will be to elongate the shape of your eyes to get an illusion of the almond-like eye. 

But if you want to accentuate the shape of your round babies, we recommend you ensure the optimum use of the huge eyelid space that comes as an advantage with round eyes and fill it with colorful eyeshadows.

Wing it as if you have no hecks to give. Start your liner at the highest peak of your eye and work your way outwards. This will balance the round feature of your eyes.

What are you waiting for?! Go girl! Rock your eyes!

3. THE UPTURNED EYE

Well the simple way to know whether your eyes our upturned or not, you simply need to notice the direction of your outer corners. In this eye shape, the outer corners of your eyes are lifted.

Aren’t your eyes, the yes to die for? They have it all so all you need to do is compliment those peepers by following the lower and upper lash line. Darkening the outer corner of your eyes will add the perfect depth it will need.

While you exaggerate the upper lid with eyeliner, apply smudged eyeliner or a nude liner along your lash line and inner corners. This will create an illusion of big and bright eyes.

And who doesn’t have big, bright eyes?!

4. THE DOWNTURNED EYE

This one is pretty much a no brainer and yes you guessed it right. This one is the opposite of upturned eye and that means if your eyes are sloping downwards, you have a downturned eye.

EYE SHADOW FOR YOUR EYES

Well, you aren’t deceiving anybody with all the innocence that your eyes appear to be. 

The main aim with a downturned eye is to create an uplifted look as it may look sleepy at times. We highly discourage any use of dark shadows or liners on the outer corner that can accentuate the downward slope. But we can create a balance by putting colored contact lenses, applying makeup upward and placing the darkest shades to the outermost corner of the eyes.

As we have a downturned eye, we cannot follow our lash line, instead, we can apply an upward 45° flick or a smudgy liner instead of a well-finished liner.

Go have fun with your eyes!

5. THE MONOLID EYE

The name says it all. They are one seamless canvas with no crease. Basically, creaseless beauties.

Celebrity with your eye type - Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Ali Wong

EYE SHADOW FOR YOUR EYES

The most suitable eyeshadow for monolids would be to blend outward using the lower lash line as your guiding line.  Monolids can also be adorned by a dark shadow on both, the upper and lower liner to achieve a beautiful look.

Tight line - this will make your lashes appear fuller and also help define your eye shape. 

Decorate your creaseless beauties!!

6. THE HOODED EYE

As the name suggest again, the hooded eyes are called so because of the visual hood. This visual hood may be contributed by the brow bone or a little extra skin.

Celebrity with your eye type - Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, Emma Stone

As the hood overlaps over the eyelid, you can go for the cut crease and work your magic there. This will add an illusional dimension to your appearance.

We would highly recommend you to go for a thick bold wing to uplift the eye.
