Considered to have “perfect” proportion, any eye technique will work.

The eye is deep into the socket , with a small mobile lid. Apply colors on the mobile lid. With a deeper color on and just above the socket line, blending up and out.

The focus for this eye shape, is to shade “up and out”. Apply liner close to the upper lash line and blend shadow along the socket line in the outer 2/3 of the eyes. Curling lashes and applying mascara can also help to “lift” the eyes.

A fold of skin hangs over the socket line. This happens with age. Use matte colors in medium to dark and keep eye makeup simple.

This eye shade has a bulge from the sock to the lash and can be difficult to work with. The best way to shade this eye is use medium to dark matte colors as illustrated.

My name is Angela Ricardo Bethea and I am the founder and editor behind ( and many other online publications ) ... I love the finer things in life, I'm quite a shop-a-holic and a certified jet-setter. So if I am not behind my laptop to blog, I'd probably be shopping if not traveling.
