Best eyeshadow shapes to try

 

1. Inner corner

 

People who have wide eyes can go for an inner corner. Throw some color inside your lid and blend it. It helps to reduce the space with your eyes. This look is maximum in minimum efforts. It automatically throws all the attention to the inner shape of your eye so if you want to flaunt the shape of the inner eye then you must go for this one.

 

2. Outer corner

 

If you have closed or small eyes then apply some eyeshadow on the outer corner of your eye. this will flaunt your entire eye’s shape. It also gives the appearance of having larger eyes. This looks so classy when done with bold colors.

 

3. Both the corner

 

If you are confused between, what should you choose then go for both as to why not? Apply dark eyeshadows on both the corners leaving the middle space highlighted in between. This does not look less than a fairy tale. Your eyes look beautiful and all the attention of the face is transferred onto your eyes.

 

4. Outer corner “cat shaped”

 

When you are going for a cat-shaped outer corner all things are clear in the head. The shape looks completely out of the box and it’s quite popular by its means. The main purpose of this shape is to pull up the outer corner of the eye. the day you want to look naughty and mysterious just like a cat goes for this one.

 

5. Outer Corner & Crease, Blended Upwards

 

The look can be attained by applying the darker shades of eyeshadow on the outer corner and the crease blending it to perfection till the brows. The highlighted brow is also blended within the eyeshadow.

One plus point for this shape is that it fits almost every eye shape so whatever is your eye shape you can go for this on without thinking a bit. One tip for hooded eye people, blend the eyeshadow a little more upwards so that it is visible.

 

6. Banana

 

This shape will make your eyelids look a little longer. Apply the eyeshadow on the outer corner taking it all up to the inner corner. You do not have to bend it down the inner corner; it needs to be exactly above the inner corner giving it a shape like a banana.

 

7. Whole inner part

 

Now it’s pretty simple to understand that by its name that the eyeshadow needs to be applied only in the inner part but as a whole. This gives a bold look to your eyes. The eyeshadow is not for everyone out there. But if you want to experiment with your look then you must try it.

 

8. Just the crease

 

This shape creates a depth inside your eyes. Here the game is a little reversed if you apply a light eyeshadow to the crease, your eyes will look much larger. It is called the ‘cut crease’. Go for this one if you have small eyes and you want to make your eyes look bigger and larger.

 

9. Whole lid

 

This shape is for the days you do not want to go wrong with anything. Apply any color it may be light dark highlights anything but just cover the whole lid with it. it is a minimalistic look and a savior for beginners. You do not need to have so many skills for this one.
