How to Do Eye Makeup for Close-Set Eyes
Our makeup artist's share their secrets to elongating and lengthening eyes for a beautiful, balanced look.
First use fingertip to apply a light layer of Prime Time Eyelid Primer to eyelids.
Apply a neutral matte shade with a soft sheen, like Vanilla Sugar Eyecolor, from the brow bone, blending down to the lash line with the Full Tapered Shadow Brush, which gives a high payoff of color.
Press Vanilla Sugar Eyecolor on the eyelids with the Full Tapered Shadow Brush. Start at the lash base and pat up to just below the crease color.
Buff on a slight amount a Smoky plum shimmer, such as Soul Sister Eyecolor, with the Eye Defining Brush. Concentrate the color in the outer crease and extend slightly past the outside edge to elongate the eyes.
Load up your Soft Focus Liner Brush with a velvety navy blue Liner Shadow, like Midnight Sky, and tap off any excess. Press the angled edge of the brush right at the lash base of the outer corner of the eye, pressing the color on for a precise, defined line. Concentrate the color on the outer corner and fade color as you work your way to the inner corner.
Layer a few coats of Flawless Definition Mascara onto lashes to frame eyes and really make them stand out. Start at the lash base and wiggle wand in a zigzag motion to separate lashes. Extending the outer lashes elongates the eyes.
To give the look more definition and balance, use the Eye Defining Brush to apply a very small amount of Midnight Sky. With just the tip of the brush, lightly buff the Liner Shadow into the outer crease.
