eye shape

 

I am really confused.  I keep reading all of these things about eye shape.  While the instructions seem fairly clear I still cannot determine what shape of eyes I have - or what to do to make them stand out.   Can you help me out?  Here is a picture:

Hi Nicoleh114.  You have such pretty eyes and brows!  I have a similar eye shape, but your eyes are not quite as deep set. To really enhance your eyes, I would do a very fine line of eyeliner and then thicken towards the edge which will raise the outer corner.  You have a good amount of lid space so you really have tons of options. Is there a particular type of look you would like to achieve? To really make those blue eyes pop, try using warm bronze tones.

Hmmm... in terms of looking for a particular look - one of the things I really struggle with is moving beyond neutrals and playing with more color. I am in a band and so I need to be able to glam it up on occasion. Incorporating color always seems to be the trickiest part.

To glam it up, I would do a smokey eye. You can do deep blue, plum, and silver/grey shades. Make Up For Ever Aqua Creamliner works as a great base all over your lid to increase the depth of color and it stays put! Then you can play with layering colors on top.
