Whats Your Eyeshape & Eyelid type??

Ok so as I share this was my personal obstacle, I used to love how people who had their makeup look so well put together & NOT too dramatic, i knew it was possible but it Stumped me for months til I finally got it so here you will find the cheat way to discover

1.what your eye shape

2.where to apply eyeshadow

3.how to blend & how much & what color ENJOY!


I have hooded lids due to the fact I have more of my lid thats not showing but I also have deep set eyes b/c I have to create the separation myself for a smokey eye using darker colors for contrast look

Ok so heres a list of some you may know to get more of a visual on determining what type eyeshape & technique you need to achieve the most flattering look =D

Beyonce is a example of a Almond eye Shape, I HATE her lol, but if you notice how easy it is to make about any eyeshadow look good just by covering your entire lid you have this eye type!

Considered to have "perfect" proportions, any eye technique will work.

Singer Tamia has a average eye shape


Apply contour along lash line, then along crease for a V-shape. Blend the application. Create a wedge at the outer corner using an accent color. Line upper and lower lashes

Actress Jessica Alba has wide set eyes

Wide Set:

The emphasis is on the inside half of the eye above the crease. Apply contour shade along lash line from inner corner out, and then back along crease to inner corner. Add an accent color in a small wedge at outer corner, being careful not to extend beyond the edge. Line upper lashes from corner to corner, adding a little lift at the outside. Line lower lashes and gently smudge.

Model Iman has a hooded Lids

Hooded Lids

The key is to use color to make it seem as though more of the lid is showing. Apply contour shade on lid from corner to corner, extending slightly above crease, and under lower lashes, working from outside corner to inner edge of iris. Apply accent color close to lash line above center of pupil and blend outward. Line upper lashes corner to corner, lower lashes from outside corner to inside of iris. (Keep Makeup simple and use matte colors in medium to dark shades)

Actress Penelope Cruz Has Close Set Eyes

Close Set:

The emphasis is on the out half of the eye. Apply contour shade along lash line and in along crease, starting above outer edge of iris, extending beyond outside corner and up. Blend the application. Make a large wedge at outer corner with the accent color. Line upper lashes from inner corner, or past outer corner of eye. Emphasize mascara application on outer lashes.

celebrity "La la" has prominent eyelids

Protruding/Prominent Lids:

The key is to contour below the crease to draw attention away from how much lid is exposed and to emphasize the upper lash line. Add contour shade over entire eye lid, blending carefully. Apply accent color along lash line from inner corner to slightly past outer corner, then in below crease instead of along it. Line upper lashes from inner corner out, with the line getting thicker at the outer corner. Line lower lashes, then gently smudge upper and lower line application.

As I told you ladies you will have a eye type & certian eye lid "la La" is a prime example she also has down turned eyelids
Down Turned Set: The focus for this eye shape, is to shade "Up and out". apply liner close to the upper lash line and blend shadow along the socket line in the outer 2/3 of the eyes. curling lashes and applying mascara can also to "left" the eyes.

This is just a bit to chew on ladies I wish you well on your journey if this poses questions PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR COMMENT, I MAKE THIS BLOG FOR ALL US #MAKEUPJUNKIES!!!!

This is Moddyanew! I have killer allergies and sinuses and I noticed that they seem to flare up while applying makeup and especially to my eye area. Before u know it I'm rubbing them and of course ruining my make up.....any tips like maybe any hypo-allergenic makeup brands/? Stayn tuned...Moddyanew.

First thing I Dont want u to think theres some Miracle product that will make this go away, Its second nature if u have allergies to desire to wipe your eye..But this I will tell u just make sure to use hyopallergenic products that will give less flare to this issue, Also use hand sanitizer to keep your hands free of dirt, Try to be mindful of your beautiful canvas you create when wearing makeup also As for some products I suggest theres tons but here a few I use , Wipes the baby kind any brand really I like Pampers b/c they soft they have fragrance free types & also they are hypoallergenic Keep in mind hypoallergenic means No fragrance,perfumes or dyes! Clinique,Almay & Covergirl all carry productstaht cater to this need .. Hope this is helpful...

Clinique?!! Now that's a brand I'm familiar with using but I didn't know they offer hypoallergenic products!!! Speaking of "familiar" I love clinque but then again I haven't really branched out to other name brand products besides that and Mac of course. I remember you advsing u shouldn't limit yourself to just one name brand because u like one or two of their products. It really does depend on the PRODUCT not the "BRANDNAME". ENLIGHTENED......MODDYANEW.

Yes I know that you Love Clinique so thats just perfect for you , they also carry a pore minimizer I use thats great for reducing oily lids & skin1 of my favs, Yea often women make teh mistake of buying a entire line of a product b/c 1 or 2 worked only to be disappointed the entire line didnt deliver under that same "it works" expectations, Im glad you were "enlightened" I will continue to deliver all my discoveries hun =)
