Do you know that everyone needs a different shape of eyeliner?
If you ever wondered why your eyeliner didn't feel right, that's because there are a right shape of eyeliner for every eye shape!
Your eyes will literally look like the humble almond nut. When you look straight ahead, your iris disappears into your upper and lower eyelids.
"Most liner styles will work on this shape, but a nice technique is to follow the natural curve of your eye, building thickness toward the outer corner. Add a flick for a sleek look or smudge a pencil into the roots and along the waterline for a sultry look."
If you notice that your eyelid droops down over the crease when your eyes are open, you’re the proud owner of some hooded lids.
"Lid space tends to get lost when hooded eyes are open, so be careful not to use too much liner on the top lash line," says Soleimani, who recommends tight-lining the top lash with a dark gel or pencil liner and working it in between lashes, which allows your eyes to stand out without loosing lid space.
Those with down-sloping eyes can get seriously frustrated with the cat-eye. This is because the natural line of their eye means they have to flick up extra high in order to get that feline look.
"Focus on creating a lift at the outer corners and keeping the inner corner open and bright to draw the eyes upward," says Soleimani. Think thin, subtle wings and a dot of highlighter.
