Question: I Have Rather Big Popping Eyes, But Not Much Of An Eye Lid Crease, Could I Still Try The Smokey Eyed Effect Without Making My Eyes Appear Small?

I have rather big popping eyes, but not much of an eye lid crease, could I still try the smokey eyed effect without making my eyes appear small?


Hi Kelly 

Yes you can use the smoky eye effect. It’s such a versatile look for any eye shape. Remember you can create a crease line just slightly above your natural crease (even if it’s not that accentuated) with a dark eyeshadow. The best colours to use are medium browns to black. To not make your eyes appear smaller, apply the medium brown eyeshadow to the centre of your lid (most protruding part) and blending it towards the outer corner of your eye. Then apply the darker shade( same as the crease) to the outer corner of your eye and if you like you could extend the darker eyeshadow just past the outer eye, to create depth. Apply a lighter shadow to your brow bone. When applying eyeliner, try to make the thickest part of the liner on the centre of your eyelid,then thinning it out towards the outer corner. Curl your top lashes and apply mascara. This will create a lifting effect over your eyelids. Avoid mascara on your lower lashes.
