Who doesn’t want to flaunt smokey eyes, but unfortunately they don’t work for everyone. So the trick is to find out the right makeup that suits your eyes, otherwise a fashion statement can turn into a fashion faux paus.

Whether your eyes are too small, too big, too close or too far apart, you need to tweak your makeup to enhance your eyes’ shape, reports vogue.in.

Here’s how you can go with the suitable makeup for your eye:

– For almond shaped eyes like Aishwarya Rai: You can’t really go wrong with this eye shape. Smoky shadows, graphic lines, bold colours – feel free to play.

– For down turned eyes like Katrina Kaif: Sometimes it’s genetics, sometimes it’s the result of age and the weakening of eye muscles, but if the outer corners of your eyes tend to droop, a cat-eye with an exaggerated upward flick is the easiest way to offset the down turned shape.

– For deep-set eyes like Sridevi: You don’t need to contour the crease because it will be quite defined already. As tempted as you may be, avoid dark smoky eyes, they give your eyes a more sunken appearance. To make them pop, use light shadows with shimmers and pearlescent sheens that’ll catch the light on the lid and below the brow bone.

– For hooded eyes like Blake Lively: If you can barely see the lid when you open your eyes, you know you have hooded eyes. Most shadow styles work with this type of eye shape, but pay extra attention to your top lash line and lash base. Amp those up generously with volumising mascara. Extend the colour you use in the crease all the way to the eyebrow to create a more definite shape.

– For close-set eyes like Kareena Kapoor: If the inner corners of your eyes are very close to the bridge of your nose, you need to focus on the outer corners. Here’s where you apply your darker/brighter shadows and pull them out. Open up the inner corners with light, highlighting shadows.

– For wide-set eyes like Alia Bhatt: Here you do the opposite of the above. Dark shades should be focused on the inner corners and blended out to lighter hues on the outer corners.

– For prominent eyes like Deepika Padukone: If your eyes are the boldest feature on your face, go easy on the eye makeup. Contour subtly and use matte shadows close to your skin tone. Play up your lips with a bright pout to balance it out. (Bollywood Country)

Make Those Eyes Lustrous

Filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh recently suffered an eye infection thanks to his fascination for eye make-up. If you’re one of those who is fond of enhancing your eyes with dramatic make-up but bothered by the constant itching and redness that it leaves, take care to apply it properly and keep a check on the product’s validity, suggest experts.

Vishal Gulati, who runs a clinic in south Delhi, says improper and forceful application of kajal, mascara, eye liner and eye shadow can develop an allergic reaction or even cause an injury to the eye.

“A lot of patients suffering from redness and irritation in the eye visit us on daily basis. Eye make-up is one of the many reasons. Girls have a tendency of applying the kajal on the inner rim of the eye, which is not recommended,” Gulati told IANS.

“The chemicals used in kajal come in contact with the eye, which cause infection and reactions. Stye, redness, conjunctivitis, blur vision, tearing of the eyes are the problems that people usually face. In extreme cases, it could even lead to blindness,” he added.

Komal Gulati, a make-up artist by profession, listed the do’s and don’ts, specially for eye make-up, and said: “The first and foremost thing that anybody should check before using the product is its validity. Most people take it for granted and do not check it. The eye products that get contaminated the most are eye shadows and mascaras.”

Mascaras are the most dangerous.

“Mascara is most likely to be contaminated because it’s wet; so chances of it getting infested with bacteria or fungus increase. You put the wand on your eyelashes, then back into the tube where bacteria can grow, then back into the eye…so it’s not safe.”

“Also, one should not apply eyeliner and kajal inside the lash line, because poking can damage the cornea. It is also very important to remove the eye make-up before sleeping,” she added.

In fact, one of the key reasons why Ghosh, maker of films like “Chokher Bali” and “Antarmahal”, developed an eye infection was due to “accumulated eye make-up at both corners (inside)” of his eyes, he had shared on Twitter.

“Anybody more or less obsessed than me with eye make-up, please take care to cleanse eye corners properly,” he had suggested to his fans.

Shalini Singh, colour and make-up expert with cosmetic brand Colorbar recommends that eyeliner pencils should be kept sharpened, so that the rough wood casing doesn’t scratch the eye or eyelid.

“Cosmetics should be replaced after every six months (more often if you wear contact lenses) to avoid excess contamination with skin bacteria. After any eye infection, such as conjunctivitis, one should go and buy fresh eye make-up,” said Singh.

“Sharing your eye cosmetic products are a big no no. Each person has different skin bacteria. If you contaminate your cosmetics with another person’s bacteria, you are likely to get an infection,” she added.

The experts also suggest to make-up enthusiasts to safeguard themselves against trying cosmetics at stores.

“The common mistake that we women make is when we visit a cosmetics counter, we use the cosmetics demonstrators! Fresh applicators should be used every time and not the sample products,” said Singh. (Bollywood Country)
