What eyeliner and mascara suits your eye shape?

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Today I'm going to be doing another post similar to my 'What Lipstick suits your skin tone?' and 'What colour suits your eyes' posts. Today I will be telling you which eyeliner looks might suit the shape of your eyes.

Small Eyes
These are all tips to make your smaller eyes seem larger.

  • ensure that your eyeliner goes from thin to thicker from the inner corner to the outer part of your eye, winging it out slightly at the edge but still make it look natural. 
  • Use a pencil liner because liquid liners can look to bold and thick.
  • Smudge dark brown or black pencil liner on your lower lash line to make your lashes look thicker.
  • Use a white or nude eyeliner to line your waterline.


  • Make sure you curl your eyelashes before applying mascara.
  • Use a mascara that will volumize and lengthen your lashes.
  • Make sure to focus more mascara in the centre of you upper lashes.
  • Use several coats on the upper lashes.
  • Don't apply too much mascara on the lower lashes but focus on the centre and outer lashes.

Big Eyes:
These are all tips on how to make your larger eyes look smaller.

  • Apply a black liner on your waterlines.
  • Stick to dark coloured eyeliners and draw a very thin line from the inner corner to the outer part of you eyelid very close to the lash line.
  • Curl your eyelashes
  • Don't apply too much mascara.

Close-set Eyes:

  • Apply eyeliner to the upper and lower lash line, only to the outer edges of the lash line.
  • Use a white liner on the inner rims.
  • Apply a generous coat of mascara.
  • Use a darker mascara on the top lashes.

Wide-set Eyes:

  • Apply liner to the top and bottom lash line.
  • Only apply liner from the outer edge of the eye to the middle.
  • Apply a light colour liner to the inner corner of you eye.
  • Use a bright coloured eyeliner to help your eyes pop.
  • Use brown or black mascara and apply more to the outer lashes, maybe even apply single false lashes to the outer ones.
  • Curl your lashes.
I hope this helped. If you have any other eye shapes that you would like me to cover, please let me know and I'll do another post with those.
