Makeup Tips to Lift Droopy Eyes

It always amazes me how you can create optical illusions with makeup. From watching Eve Pearl's DVD, I learned how to make a nose look more slender and less crooked. Now I've picked up even more makeup tricks about how to lift droopy eyes from my new favorite book, Vogue Make-Up.

Actress Rose McGowan has eyes that are shaped on a downward slope. It's really easy to make eyes like this appear more almond-like, awake and brighter by following these easy makeup tips:

  • Line your upper lashes in an upward sloping manner by using a liquid liner or a sharp pencil. Extend the line just a little bit farther than the outer corner of each eye. Avoid any heavy eyeliner on the bottom so that you draw more attention to the top of your eyes.
  • Next, apply a bone-colored eye shadow to the area just above your lashes and to the 'inner v' of your eyes. Blend a medium shade starting in the crease to just under the brow bone; this will make the area seem larger. Add a subtle highlighter just below your brow; this will also help draw attention to the upper part of your eye.
  • Finish with a few false lash pieces on the outer corner of your eyes. You can curl these and your natural lashes together. Apply two coats of mascara and if you want, add a white or nude eye liner to the inner rims of your lower lashes. Voila, an instant eye lift!

Can I just say, why do we always have to feel like we just have to hide or correct our big noses or eyes that "are shaped on downward slops" like above? Make-up tips about camouflaging perfectly normal and healthy features just don't sit well with me. Rose is beautiful -- she doesn't need any corrections! We're all conscious about some parts of our bodies, but our little features that don't look perfect and like everyone else are what make you unique!

These are great tips, thank you! It's always a mistake to use liner on the lower lashes if your eyes are almond shaped or on the small side. I find that a dab of a highlighter like Benefit High Beam onto the inner corner of the eye really lifts and opens up droopy eyes too.
