Kilay is life, but really, you shouldn't forget one important element that can help bring out your features: your eye shape. It's pretty easy to enhance it—all you need is a good, reliable eyeliner and a steady hand. Still, some people find it a daunting task, mostly because they don't know how to flaunt what they've got.
Worry not, CGs! Here's a guide to properly apply eyeliner for round, close-set, and chinita peepers.
What they are: Big and doll-like, giving you a wide-eyed, innocent look.
Consider yourself lucky, because round eyes can go with any liner technique! The best look for you, however, is the popular cat eye.
Hack your way to a perfect flick by using a business card diagonally placed on the outer corner of your eye so it's parallel to the outer edge of your brow. Use the edge to trace a little wing. Line the rest of your eye and connect it to this flick. Voila!
What they are: Your eyes are less than one eye-width apart.
With your facial elements clustered towards the center instead of being evenly laid out, this kind of eye shape may cause your face to look wider than it actually is. However, properly using eyeliner can help offset this issue.
Since your eyes are close together, you can opt to create the illusion that they are far apart by applying a bit of concealer on your eyes' inner corners. This will help create space between your peepers. Then, create a cat eye with an extra chunky flick, to make the outer corners of your eyes look visually wider.
What they are: Your eyelids do not have a crease, aka you're chinita.
Chinita girls have an innately charming appeal, with eyes that adorably crinkle up when they smile. However, having monolids can be frustrating because when you open your eyes, the lids tend to hide your eyeshadow or eyeliner. To counter this, draw a thick line from the lashes until the part that could be seen on the upper lid when your eyes are wide open. This creates the illusion of a double lid.
