I have gotten quite a number of requests on how to do eyeshadow on single eyelids. I personally have double so I’ve cooked up a few things that can help. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions!

Tips
* To create the effect of a crease in the lid, use a deep color at the inside corner of the eye and extend it horizontally midway between the lash line and the brow bone. Blend and blend some more to avoid a harsh line.

* Skip dark liner on the bottom lash line because it would only close up your eyes even more. Use eyeshadow instead and line only up to the midpoint from the outer corner. You can also try bright colors for lining. Teal and violet will make brown eyes pop.

* When using eyeshadow, make sure the color shows up even when your eyes are open. In other words, apply it a little higher than you would on someone with double eyelids.

* You can use lighter shades to open up the eye area. Remember also to highlight your brow bone and inner v.
