Magic "haze" will help both enlarge the eyes, and narrow, lift the outer corners or hide the overhanging eyelid. How to achieve different effects, read our article

Before you change the structure of the eyes with makeup, check if they really deviate from the harmonious shape. In each paragraph, we give the rules for determining the features of the eyes and options for harmonizing them with “smoky” makeup.

Makeup for close-set eyes

How to determine? The distance between the eyes is less than the length of one eye.

How to smoke: Don't darken the inner corners of your eyes. Apply light shadows with a radiant texture to this area, and gradually shade dark shadows only from the beginning of the ciliary contour.Make the darkest, richest accent on the outer corners of the eyes and blend towards the temples. This visually “spreads” the eyes from each other and makes their fit more harmonious.

Makeup for far-set eyes

How to determine? The distance between the eyes is greater than the length of one eye.

How to smokey: dark shadows and a leash should be applied from the very beginning of the eye, without making a big light accent at the inner corner. If you plan to paint over the inner eyelid with a dark pencil, start from the very beginning of the eye, darkening the mucous membrane and in the inner corner.

If you want to achieve an even greater effect of eye convergence, use a fluffy brush to blend the intermediate color that you use in the crease of the eyelid, also in the inner part of the eye from above under the eyebrow.

Do not make too much shading from the outer corner of the eye to the temple. Finish darkening within the crease of the upper eyelid.

Makeup for eyes with impending eyelids

How to determine? The movable eyelid is not visible when the eyes are open, or its height occupies less than one third of the space between the ciliary contour and the eyebrow.

How to make smokey: apply a dark shade on the moving eyelid, and blend the intermediate color along the orbital line, hiding unnecessary volume. Achieve soft, natural shading without clear boundaries, then smoky makeup will perfectly hide the overhanging eyelid.

Drop Eye Makeup

How to determine? The outer corner of the eye is lower than the inner one.

How to make smokey: when applying shadows to the crease of the eyelid, shade them in a diagonal direction, stretching the shape of the eyes to the temples. Do not darken the outer corner from below, so as not to "lower" it even more. Instead, leave the lower eyelid clean, or paint over it with shadows completely.

Makeup for round eyes

How to determine? The height of the eye is more than half of its length.

How to make smokey: do not blend the shadows widely over the crease of the upper eyelid. Pull them more towards the temple, and paint over the mucous membrane with a black pencil, which will significantly narrow your eyes.

Makeup for narrow eyes

How to determine? The height of the eye is less than half of its length.

How to smokey: Carefully work out the orbital line with shades of an intermediate color, rounding the shape of the eye. Line the inner eyelid with a beige or light pink liner for a more open look.
