Best Eye Makeup For Droopy Eyes
These tips are some easy to follow tips on eye makeup for droopy eyes. Applying the right eye makeup often does the trick and makes you look much younger. You seem more awake and refreshed.
1. Apply Concealer:
Choose a liquid concealer, it will hold eye makeup better and will let it last all day. Take some on a makeup sponge, dab lightly on skin around the eyes, and blend well. Apply from the lash line until below the brow for better coverage.
2. Choose the Colors Wisely:
With drooping eyelids, we need to take special care in selecting the right colors for the eye shadows. Invest in some light to medium shades, dark shades make the eyes look more tired and aged. Stick to neutrals, browns, taupe and other light shades. Use metallic or pearly shades that will help distract the attention from the droopy eyes.
3. Applying Eye Shadow:
Take a light shade, apply all over the lid from the inner to the outer corner of the lid, and blend well. Go for a slight darker shade and lightly contour the eyelids. Start at the middle area where it is the droopiest usually, work towards the outer edge, and create a wing shape to make it appear diagonal. Blend into the crease, but keep it light.
4. Use A Highlighter:
Use a light highlighter shade under the brows like whites or silver to make the eyes look less droopy. Blend in a bit with the crease shadow to make it look more natural.
5. Lining Eyes:
While black liquid liners tend to be quite harsh on droopy eyes, use a pencil liner or a thin damp brush to apply eye shadow as the eyeliner. Use a dark shade and do not create a harsh line. Keep the line smudged for better appearance.
Use greens, browns or purple instead of black and shimmery or metallic liners help take the attention away from droopiness.
Don’t line the inner corner of the eyes, if you have small eyes just line the lower lash line with a white-eye pencil or a nude pencil to make the eyes appear bigger.
6. Apply Mascara And Fake Lashes:
Mascara and false lashes can take away attention from those droopy eyelids. Apply two three coats of mascara or use some fake lashes to make the outer corner of the eyes more prominent. The length of the lashes then takes the focus away from the droopy nature of your eyes. And that is where we need to focus all our attention on! Drawing away a viewers eyes from droopy eyes.
