Ditch your frustration about applying eye makeup by embracing these looks that'll play up your specific eye shape
The classic Asian makeup lookWhy it works: Margaret Cho has "small eyes that kind of downturn at the ends," so to counteract that, she used dark brown eyeshadow on the upper edges, says Babaian. Her makeup is also "focused more on the eyebrows and the dark lip, which accentuates [her] fair skin tone."
Who should do it: Women with small, downturned monolid eyes.
How to get it:
Step 1: Prep lids with foundation.
Step 2: Sweep brown shadow on your lids, paying more attention to outer corners of the eyes to counteract the downward sloping.
Step 3: Apply a darker brown shadow just above the previous brown.
Step 4: Line a black shadow along your top lashlines.
Step 5: Apply a thin line of black cream or liquid liner on the mid to outer corners of your eyes, again to help lift them.
Step 6: Apply highlighter on your lower lashlines to make your eyes look more open.
