Droopy eyes makeup
It is not very difficult to apply makeup for droopy eyes. Follow this simple guideline to achieve the best results:
Color palette for eye makeup
Highlighter: Use neutral colors. If you settle in for dark colors; choose a color that is vividly different from your eye color. For e.g., for blue eyes - try using brown orange, for hazel green eyes - try pimento brown
Eye shadow: Choose pearly pink, orangey brown, pearly beige and soft charcoal/black.
Kohl pencil: Black and brown
Eyebrow pencil - Use brown gray or black gray for a natural brow line.
Mascara: Choose a color that is close to the color of your natural lashes.
The mascara effect
Mascara brightens the eye and lends an opening effect. Two colors that suit any occasion would be black and dark brown mascara. While coating mascara, concentrate on the middle and inside lashes and try and encourage the lashes upwards and outwards. Do not apply a lot on the outer lashes as it can make the eyes appear droopy again. A coat on the upper lashes would suffice for day time makeup. To get a dramatic effect suitable for a late evening, coat both the upper and lower lashes.
Conceal with the concealer
Bags under droopy eyes or even if the color under the eyes look darker or dark circles under the eyes can make the droopy eyes appear more prominent. Camouflage them with a light-reflecting concealer to diminish the droopy look by 50%.
Magic of light color eye shadow
The outer corners of the eyes are turned slightly downward which makes them appear lower than the inner corner of the eyes. Instead of using darker colors, use only light colors along the inner half of your upper lid as darker colors make the eyes look even more sunken.
The eye illuminator is ideal to illuminate the eye instantly. The droopy eyes look lively and brighter. An eye illuminator can also be used on your brow bone. Choose a smudge-proof for a lasting effect.
The finishing touch
Finish the look by drawing a line with a pencil or eyeliner. The perfect finish should be such that the outer part of the line should be wider so that attention is drawn upwards rather than downwards.
Don't ignore brows
The idea is to have brows that distract from the droopy eyes. Aim for a brow that point towards the exterior of the face rather than the lower part.
