Place your finger at the outside corner of your eye and softly pull your eyelid so that it is easier to apply your eyeliner. Draw the line almost into your eyelash line. Do it on both eyes and then take your eyeliner brush, dip it into black eye shadow and just smear the color gently over the eyeliner line. This will soften the look. 7. Take some black mascara and apply one or two coats onto your eyelashes. 8. For a very dramatic look, you might want to put on some individual lashes and finish that off with a touch of mascara.

25. Eye Makeup Tips When Wearing Glasses

Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing the correct glasses / spectacles for you:

The thickness of the lens must be the same as that of the frame. The glasss or spectacles frame must sit comfortable on your face. The frame must be functional and practical. The glasses must also be attractive and suit your face shape.

Face Shapes Round Face


If you have a round face, then it is very important that you do not buy a round shaped frame, because your face will look more round. It is ideal to choose a square shaped frame this will soften the roundness of your face. If your square shaped frame is multi colored, then the darker color of the two must be on the outside corners of the frame.

Square Shaped Face


For a square shaped face, it is important not to buy a square or rounded framethis will make your face look funny. The emphasis must be on your eyebrows, so the ideal shape will be an oval or rectangular frame.

Copyright University of Makeup

Handbook

Heart Shaped Face

Any frame can be worn for a heart-shaped face, except a tear dropped one.

Long Face

If you have a long face, then the emphasis must be on the width of the frame on the side. A big frame can be worn with ease.

Please note that the frame must never be underneath your eyebrows. Hairstyles Feathery Hairstyle

If you have a feathery hairstyle, then a plain frame will look suitable with that.

Formal Hairstyle

With a formal hairstyle a striking frame can be worn.

Always remember that your frames color must suit the color of your hair. Eye Shapes Wide Apart

For eyes that are wide apart, wear an oval or rectangular frame.

Close to Each Other

For eyes that are close to each other, it is important to wear a rounded shape. This will give the impression that the eyes are not so close to each other.

Always ensure that your eyes are right in the middle of each lens. Nose Shapes Long Nose

If someone has a long nose, then the bridge of the glasses must sit low onto your clients nose. This will actually divide your nose in half and make it look shorter.

Short Nose

If your client has a short nose, then the bridge of the glasses must be a bit higher.

Forehead Shapes High Forehead

For a high forehead, ensure that the frame of the glasses sits just above your eyebrows.

Copyright University of Makeup

Handbook

Short Forehead

For a short forehead, the frame of the glasses must sit onto your eyebrows.

How to do makeup for someone that is far-seeing / long sighted:


Such a person can see very well on far distances, but not on short distances. The lenses of these glasses are normally very thick and this will make the eyes appear bigger. It is thus very important to apply your make-up very neatly because every fault, etc. will show through your lenses. Use light make-up eye shadows, not any shimmering make-up, black eyeliner or black mascara. Keep it subtle by using rather brown mascara and remember to put the eye shadow color in the crease of your eye, following your eyes shape.

How to apply makeup for someone that is short-sighted / near sighted:


Such a person can see very well on short distances, but not so good on far distances. The lenses of the glasses will not be thick at all and this will make the eyes appear smaller. Use stronger colors such as charcoal, dove-blue, plum, etc. and remember that the emphasis must fall on the fold of your eyes and the outer corners of your eyes. You can use a shimmering color over your existing eye shadow just to accentuate your eyes. Finish it off by applying black eyeliner and mascara. Watch the Video Tutorial
