The use of the correct eye make-up and make-up tricks are necessary to make the shape, but possibly also the position of the eyes, look more attractive. You can make subtle corrections so that the eye shape looks good. Wrong use of colours can have an adverse effect, for example with regard to the distance between the eyes.
Oily skin: prefer not to use cream eye shadow, it can run out. Preferably use powder eye shadow.
Normal skin: almost all types of eye shadow and eye pencils can be used.
Dry skin: preferably cream eye shadow or markers, powder eye shadow or eye pencil can possibly also be used. However, very dry skin can feel somewhat tight because of this.
Sensitive skin / allergic: be careful and opt for hypo-allergenic makeup from, for example, Clinique. Unfortunately, an allergic reaction can never be ruled out completely, also because every skin reacts differently.
Recommended eye shadow colours:
Blue eyes: brown, copper coloured, purple, pink, blue, turquoise, grey, silver and peach. Eyeshadow that contains orange hues makes the eyes appear even bluer. Shades of grey can also make the blue of the iris speak more.
Green eyes: various colours of brown, purple, pink, green, apricot, copper and gold.
Brown eyes: brown tones, lilac, azure, turquoise, pink, apricot, green and copper.
Grey eyes: pink, light brown, turquoise, blue, copper, grey and purple.
Far apart eyes:
Emphasize the inner eye corners, here comes the dark colour eye shadow. Choose lighter colours on the outside of the eyelids. Blend the whole. If eyeliner is used, make the line thicker at the inner corner of the eye. When applying mascara, emphasize the centre of the eye. Only use the highlighter below the middle of the eyebrows.
Light colours on the inner part of the eyelids. The dark colours appear on the outside. When using eyeliner, a darker colour appears on the outer part of the eyelids. Mascara: extra on the outside of the lashes. Apply some pieces of false eyelashes to the outside of the eyelids. The highlighter comes under the outside of the eyebrows.
Keep the colours light to the eye, a little darker above it. A white pencil line on the inner edge of the lower eyelid makes the eyes appear larger. Apply mascara especially on the outside of the eyelashes. The highlighter comes under the eyebrows.
Apply a light shade of eye shadow to the eyelid. Eyeliner: apply only a thin line. Mascara: emphasize the centre of the eye. Take a highlighter in a covered colour. Apply under the eyebrows and on the middle of the eyelids.
Covered shades on the eyelids. Eyeliner: a soft and rubbed line. Highlighter under the eyebrows and little mascara.
