Makeup that disguises droopy eyes

Makeup can be applied on all eyes, but almond-shaped eyes tend to be the easiest to work with. If you have droopy eyelids, all you need is a few different eyeshadows and the right technique to brighten up your look. 

Here are the steps to follow:

1

Apply a pale eyeshadow to your upper eyelid and along the roots of your lower lashes.

Even out your complexion

Caution: if we have deep wrinkles, dark circles or bags under the eyes, it is preferable to apply makeup only on the upper eyelid.

2

Next, use a slightly darker shade (like medium brown) to sculpt your eye crease. Pull your lid up from the brow and apply the shadow above the area where your eye droops. This will make your outer lid appear more arched.      

Pro tip: Avoid shimmery eyeshadow as it will only draw attention to sagging eyelids.

Get your shine on

3

To add more definition to the outer corner of your eyelid, apply a dark colour, like black or charcoal. Using a precision brush, apply the shadow from the outside lower corner of the eye up to the crease (basically creating a sideways V), making sure to not cross the imaginary line connecting your lower lashes and the tip of your eyebrows. Don’t forget to blend the eyeshadow in.

Bring out your eyes

4

With a black pencil or liquid liner, draw a line across the outer half of your upper lashes. This will make your eyes appear wider.

Pro tip: For the perfect cat eye, make sure to follow that imaginary line we just mentioned—from the tip of your eyebrow to the outside corner of your eye.

Add depth to the look

5

Curl your lashes for a wide-eyed finish, making sure to curl the entire lash for an all-natural look. Next, apply a coat of mascara.

Easy makeup for a stylish vacation!

6

Finally, brush your eyebrows upwards, filling them in with a powder or pencil. For eyes that really pop, cheat a little by creating even more of an arch above your natural brow line.  

Avoid:

  • Mascara on your lower lashes
  • Dark eyeliner or eyeshadow below the eyes
