Eyeshadow application is no doubt my favorite part of the makeup routine! Not only can you create different looks through the use of different colors, you can also use eyeshadow to alter the shape of your eyes and correct your flaws. For the next couple of entries, I will be focusing on the use of eyeshadows. But first, let us look at the different ways on how to correct the shape of your eyes.

Wide-set eyes

How to do makeup on wide-set eyes

To make wide-set eyes appear close together, blend a taupe or brown shadow from the beginning of the brow down the sides of your nose to make the eyebrows appear closer together. Use a darker color in the inner half of the eyelid and blend it close to the corner of the nose to “pull” your eyes together. Save the lighter color for the outer half of the lid. When applying eyeliner, start from the inner corner of the eyes and stop right at the outer corner. Do not extend the line upwards or past the outer corner.
