How to Do Makeup for Almond Eyes | Professional Technique for Makeup on Almond Eyes | Youtube 2017


Hi this video is about how to apply
eyeshadow for almond shaped eyes my name is Melissa Van Dijk and I’m a
professional makeup artist and you can join me every Sunday on my Facebook page
because I’m doing live makeup tutorials but let’s get right into this video at
first I like to give you some tips about how
to recognize if you have almond shaped eyes or not? and then I’m going to
demonstrate you a simple eye makeup look which you can create at home and it
looks beautiful for an everyday makeup look the first tip is to close your eyes
and then you have to ask yourself if your eyelid has a crease and if it has a
crease this is already a good sign and if you haven’t a creased then you might
have a monolid it and now we can move on to the next step for tip number two you
will need to have your eyes open and you need to see the crease if you see the
crease this is already a good sign and you also need to see a little bit of
your eyelid and now we can move on to the third tip next tip check the whites
of your eyes and to be more specific you will need to find out if there’s any
whites visible around your iris if you can see that there is some white on the
lower part or upper part and you will have some round eyes but if you can’t
see any whites on the lower or upper part then you have almond shaped eyes but
let’s move on to the next tip now we will need to find out if you have
downturned or upturned shaped eyes and to find out if you have it or not then
you just need to imagine a line which goes straight through your eyes a
horizontal line and if the outer corners of your eyes are above you have upturned
eyes and if the other corners are underneath you have downturned eyes but
if the outer corners are exactly on that line you have the perfect almond shaped
eyes and we will move on to the next tip for the last tip we will need to
find out if you have close set eyes or wide set eyes and if you have none of
them then you just can play around with makeup and you don’t have to worry about
anything but you can have almond shaped eyes even though you have close set
or wide set eyes I so just keep this in mind how to find out if you have close set
eyes or wide set eyes well just take one eye size and place it in
between the two eyes and if this gap is wider than one eye size you have wide
set eyes and if this gap is smaller than one eye size you have close set eyes and this will also play a big role on how to apply your eyeshadow
but now we will move on to the application now that you know that you
have to perfect almond shaped eyes you can play around with so many different
eye makeup looks because there aren’t any rules with the almond shaped and
with that said I’m going to show you now one technique which you can also do at
home just make sure that you are matching the colors with your skin tone
because I have a light to medium skin tone I’m also going to use these brown
tones but if you have lighter skin tone or a darker skin tone just make sure
that you use something which is visible on your skin tone because then it will
give you a beautiful appearance and it looks just gorgeous on your eyes for
today’s eye makeup look I’m going to use the Smashbox eyeshadow palette and I’m
going to use the light browns and also pinkish tones for my eye makeup look I’m
going to start off with a transition shade a little bit in my crease and
above which is at this shade right here I’m going to use a fluffy zoeva brush
and I’m going into the transition shade and I’m going to apply it in my crease
and also above because when I’m opening my eyes you still will see some colors
which gives it a really nice and flawless look so at first I like to dip
into the transition shade and also tap the excess off and I’m going to apply it
into the crease and above to keep this video as short as possible
I’m just going to demonstrate to this eye makeup look on one side because it’s
exactly the same on the other side but you can join me every Sunday on my
Facebook page because I’m doing a live makeup tutorials and all the
informations are down below in the description box where you can also ask
me any questions about makeup but let’s move on with the eye makeup look now I’m
going to use this brown shade right here with a smaller fluffier brush and I’m
just going to apply it into the crease I’m just keeping this shade right here
into the crease and I’m not going above because I like that the colors are going
slightly into each other and that it looks flawless blended and this would
also deepen the crease now I’m going into this two shimmery
shades righty I’m going to mix it and I like to apply it with my finger to get a
full pigment with this shimmery shade I’m going to use it on the entire mobile
lid and then I like to blend it out a little bit with my finger and a brush now you can take a small fluffy brush
but still flat brush to blend it into the other shades and you can also drag
it down a little bit towards the inner corner and also get a little bit more
precise when you’re going to follow your lash line so that it adds also more
glitter on your lash line so I’m going to mix it again I’m going to tap the
excess off I’m just going close to my lash line so that when I’m open my eye
then it looks really nice and shimmery and I also like to drag it down a little
bit more to the inner corner of my eye and also blend it into the other shades
but still on the mobile it you don’t want to drag it up up to the crease now
I’m going into this dark brown shade and I’m focusing on the outer corner of my
eye and also a little bit into the crease and for that I’m going to use a
fluffy brush but still a little bit more dense brush to keep the focus at the
outer corner of my eye so at first I like to dab a little bit and then I’m
going to blend it into the other shades but I’m keeping it at the outer part of
my eye to add a little bit more depth to my eye and also a little bit into the
crease but not towards the inner corner keep it to the other part for my lower lashline I’m going to use
this dark brown shade again and just keep it very close to the lash line and for
that I’m going to use a pointed fluffy brush to also get it nicely blended and
then later on I’m going to use the light brown and I put this underneath the dark
brown so this is not a dark brown and I’m keeping it very close to the lash
line and also to the lashes and I’m also connecting it with the outer corner of
my eye with the lid above so that it looks like one full eye makeup look so now I like to use the same brush
again I’m just going into the lighter brownish shade and I’m putting this
underneath and blend it into the dark brown now I’m going into this light
shimmery shade right here which I’m going to use as a highlighter and
publication I’m going to use a flat fluffy brush which is also a little bit
pointed at the front to keep the focus in the inner corner and also underneath
my brows and if you have close set eyes make sure that you are highlighting
in the inner corner of your eye because this is so important if you have close
set eyes because this will give you the illusion that they aren’t that close
anymore and if you have wide set eyes keep it matte and also keep it a little
bit darker in the inner corner because then it will give you the appearance
that they aren’t that white said it anymore bear this in mind and then you
can use any application and you can also use any color as you want on the rest of
your eyelid but just keep this in mind this is now one technique and also one
eye shadow look you can create if you have almond shaped eyes and now as the
last step you just need to apply some mascara and you are ready to go this is now the finished look of my eye
makeup look and this is such a gorgeous and simple eye makeup look which you can
create if you have almond shaped eyes but don’t forget that this is just one
technique you can use so many different techniques you can use so many different
colors just play around and enjoy applying eyeshadow thank you so much for

    despite a lot of research, I think it's really hard to determine one's eye shape. I've always thought I had hooded eyes only because my lid that shows is small. Any tips on easiest way to determine your eye shape?

  2. Suzanne Moogan

    Thanks for the video, the look you have created is simple and gorgeous, I hope you can help me.
    I think my eyes are upturned almond, in my opinion, it is exceptionally difficult to define your eye shape
    For years I categorised them as almond, however now I believe
    they are upturned, as upturned are so very close to almond it is difficult to say one or the other.
    Judging them minus makeup my eyes are almond, I have a visible crease and the only whites ever visible are at each inner and outer corner of the eyes , i never see any other whites, my eyes also they have regular spacing, however they do slant upwards, this is when for me it becomes confusing as almond eyes also have a slight outer slant, in addition i have very long blonde eyelashes so that confuses me further, only when my eyelashes are curled back can I see a cat like upward appearance to the outer corners.
    All I can say for sure is my eyes are slightly larger than Catherine Zeta Jones, who I know has almond eyes, however, my eyes slant upwards far
    more than than Catherine's do at her outer corners and my bottom eyelid is longer than the top.
    What catergory would that place me in almond upturned or upturned?
    Another question is my natural eyecolour is sea green, is purple eyeshadow the best shade to bring out the green in my eyes?, I have been told that oyster eyeshadow brings out green and it is more muted for work days.
    If it helps anyone my eyes are identical apart from the colour to Peach Phillips who has slanted eyes and another channel on Youtube.
    Thanks I am definitely subscribing to your channel

    My eyes are almond shaped but slightly hooded. When I'm tired the hoods kind of droop. My go-to is a smokey eye, but I focus the darkest shadow completely on my lid and avoid the crease, and blend a transition into the crease so that it's more seamless. This makes my eyes pop so much more and keeps me looking more awake. I love your tips though! It gives me a little more courage to step out of my comfort zone.

    Honey ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ if you have almond shaped eyes you certainly donโ€™t need any instruction๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    I love your clear instructions. As someone who's new to this I have a tough time watching a lot of videos. Thank you! Will definitely tune in this Sunday

    Thank you! Iโ€™m so glad I found your channel. I have almond shaped eyes & used your tutorial to apply my eyeshadow today. It looks so good! Your directions are clear & your results are wonderful. Iโ€™m looking forward to watching more of your videos.

    I have wide set almond eyes and you mention that we should use darker shades in the inner corners of our eyes. What would be examples of some of those darker shades? Also what do you mean by keeping it matte?

  8. Felicia Nacole

    Thank you so much for this video! Iโ€™m going to start applying the lid color with my finger. Also Iโ€™ve been using a light color on my inner corners but now I know to use a darker color โค๏ธ
