This shape often has a distinct crease, so you want to begin by sweeping the darkest tone from the outer edge of the lid halfway into the crease itself. Then fill the inside portion of the lid with a lighter accent color and blend.


For this shape, keep the darkest tone in the center of the lid and blend upward from the lid to the crease. Using this center point accents the eye’s natural shape. Then blend a lighter tone into the inner and outer part of the lid.


This shape often has a small crease, so you want to use darker tones just along the lash line to highlight the shape without overpowering it. Then use a lighter tone to highlight the top of the lid and the brow bones. Blend well.

Remember, darker tones create depth, while lighter tones highlight. So if you’re unsure of your shape, experiment with this principle until you find a look that’s right for you.
