How To Apply Eyeshadow To Deep-Set Eyes
To conceal deep set eyes is something of a difficult task. This video gives you step-by-step instructions to how you can conceal your deep set eyes with clever eye makeup techniques which are very easy to follow.
Hi, I am Myriam. I am a makeup artist, and today, I am going to show you loads of different looks on how to apply different eye shadows, different colored eye shadows, creating classic looks but also some wild looks to go out. Hi, I am now going to show you how to correct deep set eyes.
So, first of all, you prepare your eyelids with your eye makeup primer. Very important because it is going to keep your makeup going on all day and give you more intensity to the look as well. And to correct deep set eye, you are going to choose two colours, one light shimmery color and one matte darker color.
With your first light shimmery colour, so I am choosing here light pink shimmery, you are going to apply it on the top mobile lid. So because it is a light colour, you make sure that you apply above at least three coats so that it is going to show and last. So, the important thing that you are going to correct deep set eyes is you want to open up the eye which is why you are choosing your shimmery color all the way onto the top of the mobile lid.
By doing this, you are going to open up the eye because every light color expands and so especially if we have shimmer or glitter, it is going to expand the eye in the area and make it look bigger. So, I am putting my secret here so it lasts longer, so I am choosing a natural color very lightly with those three coats. Make sure you apply it at the root of the lashes and all the way to the crease but no higher than the crease because you want to keep that area clean for your matte color.
So there, I have done about three coats here. So, what I am going to do now is I am choosing a very soft blending brush. It could be a round brush or the one I have here is great as well and I am choosing a matte, very dark pink colour, and with that brush and my musk colour, we are going all the way along the crease and very gently.
So, what happens by doing this is we are going to recede that area therefore you are going to have the top lid showing more because that is what happens when we have deep set eyes because the eyelids doesn't show much. So, we want to create the illusion of having more eyelids. Very gently here, I am applying my dark eye shadow and I am just going on to stay on the crease.
That's a very simple and easy way to do it. So, the advantage of using a soft brush like this is it is not going to be kept with too much pigment so you don't risk putting too much because you don't want to create something too dark either. They're fairly natural.
Alright, open your eyes. Great! So, you shouldn't go too much higher than the middle of the crease, you shouldn't see much when you open your eyes, what you really see is the top of the lids with your rich color that is showing. I will do the same on the other side, right.
So, all the way to the crease till you use your dark color but make sure you don't use too much on the inner corner so basically you do like a line. Close your eyes so you do that line there right. Just to add the last touch, you go back to the pink you were using with your flat eye shadow brush and you just go back onto it, just in case, by blending the top, you have removed the little bit of your eye shadow so you want it to be quite intense here.
So, you create that lovely contrast with your nice shimmery color and your darker color in the crease. Okay, when you have deep set eyes, you don't really want to put too much eyeliner at the root of the lashes. If you want to put a little bit, you can, so I wouldn't use a black, I would use a more of a gray.
So, if you use a gray just at the root of the lashes, it's nothing thick but just to give a little bit of definition to the eyes. And again, I wouldn't use anything too dark under the eyes so you can just leave it like that or use quite a light eye shadow under the eyes. Open, yes, so close your eyes for me, I need to check, and open your eyes, close your eyes, okay, open, okay.
So, that is your
