Beauty Tips for Round Eyes

December 29th, 2013 • Posted by Spa Je' Moi • Permalink

There are three basic eye shapes: round, oval and almond. Round eyes are exactly how they sound -- round. Christina Ricci, Zoe Deschanel, Katy Pery, Ayumi Hamasaki and the Olsen twins are a few celebrities with this eye shape. If you also have this eye shape, take a look at the makeup tips we have below to help you work with your unique eye shape.

  • Using a medium earthy shade of eye shadow, sweep shadow across the eye lid and blend a darker earthy shade into the crease and out at the corners. Use a light shade of eye shadow to highlight the brow bone and inner corners of your eyes.

  • If you want to elongate your round eye, apply eyeliner to the bottom and top two-thirds of your eye and extend it beyond the outer corners. Leaving the inner corners of your eyes unlined focuses attention on the outer edges, making round eyes appear more balanced and proportionate.

  • If you want to elongate your eye even more, apply two coats of mascara and focus on the outer third of the eye.

  • If you want your eyes to appear even rounder, apply eye liner to your top lid and stop at the outer corners. Do not extend the eyeliner beyond the corners.

  • Lash extensions look great on round eyes. Try placing them only on the outer corners of your eyes to bring more balance to your features.

Some people also believe that our physical characteristics are clues to our personality traits. People with round eyes are believed to be outspoken, emotional and dramatic. They are social, charming, artistic and creative. They enjoy living life outside the box.

These are just a few suggestions to help you understand your eye shape and how to work with it best. If you like doing your makeup a particular way, we're not saying to change that. If you have a technique that you like and works for you, then stick with it. If you'd like a little more help at enhancing your unique features, don't hesitate to call and schedule an appointment. We'd be more than happy to help.
