Almond eyes

If you see a visible crease in your eyelid and your iris touches both the top and bottom eyelids, you have almond eyes! Almond eyes lend themselves perfectly to dramatic makeup looks, including graphic liner and sharp cut creases. Make your almond eyes appear larger and more awake when you apply a light-colored eyeshadow underneath your lower lash line.


Round eyes

Round eyes have a visible crease and a more circular appearance, without any tapering in the outer and inner corners of the eyes. The whites of the eyes are also visible on either the top or the bottom of the iris. When applying makeup on round eyes, place the most vivid colors on the top lash line and outer corners, while keeping the bottom lash line makeup to a minimum. As round eyes generally read as cute, using a darker eyeshadow can give a more serious and sexy look.
