Smoky eyes for the impending century is the final part of the trilogy of articles about the impending eyelid. I’m sure you didn’t miss the last article on arrows for the impending century.
We are already with you examined 4 types of impending eyelids. Now let’s start correcting them using color-shadow correction or, more simply, eye shadow.
Before you start eye makeup, remember 3 rules:
- Define the boundaries of the feather
- Visually visualize the feathering line from the outer corner of the eye to the point where the feathering will end
- And only then proceed to eye makeup
Smoky eyes for the impending century
The first form of the overhanging eyelid is when the upper eyelid overlaps the outer corner of the eye and its central part.
Your task is to visually divert attention from the overhanging outer corner using darkening. Use a natural-colored eyeshadow that blends in with your skin tone if you want to avoid contrasting eye makeup.
As a living example, I’m showing Anne Hathaway with the exact same eye shape and makeup.
The next example of an overhanging eyelid is when the upper overhanging eyelid covers only the central part of the movable eyelid, leaving the outer and inner corners of the eyes slightly open.
Your task is to bring the shading of the shadows to the center of the pupil, to the place where the “fall” begins.
Despite the clarity of Emma Stone’s shading, this example shows that this makeup option has a place to be.
The third form is when the overhanging eyelid does not completely overlap the movable eyelid, part of which opens closer to the inner corner of the eye.
Avoid crisp lines, try to make the shading smooth and soft.
Camilla Belle makeup is a prime example.
This is the most common form of the overhanging eyelid – this is when the entire part of the movable eyelid is covered by the upper (overhanging) eyelid.
In this case, you should completely darken the overhanging part of the eyelid from the outer corner to the inner corner.
Jennifer Lawrence knows like no one else that she has just such an eye shape.
To make Smoky eyes look harmonious for the impending century, determine which type of impending century your case belongs to. If you have chosen the wrong shape, then most likely you will remain unhappy with the result and draw, like most owners of overhanging eyelids, the wrong conclusion: Smoky eyes are not mine.
From all 4 examples, it is clear that not all types of the impending century lend themselves to the same shadow correction. You need to take into account the shape of your eyes specifically, starting only from it. This is the only way to achieve the best result!
