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)

It is sometimes a struggle waking up in the morning, especially after having not so sound sleep. But one can fake the appearance of a good night’s sleep with some cool make-up effects.

From the power of eyeshadow to a mini-lesson in applying mascara, here’s six bits of advice that can make anyone bright-eyed every single day, reports huffingtonpost.com.

And who better to tell us about them than the women on the streets of New York? Here are the tips from them:

* Use your nude liners: Jordan says: “(I use) a nude eyeliner on the inner water line because I’m exhausted all the time and this takes out the redness and makes you look awake.”

* Get fuller lashes with powder: Emily says: “Sweeping powder over my eyelashes is a great way to make them thicker and elongate the wear of my mascara. I also like holding a piece of tissue underneath my bottom lashes when applying mascara to them; this protects my skin from being smeared with mascara while allowing me to be more thorough with the mascara application.”

* Refresh with some eyedrops: Renee says: “I used to work for Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and this is a trick that all the models use: Put in eye drops just before you have a photo taken, especially if your eyes are tired, and it wakes you up — your eyes look fresh and rested!”

* Double up on your product supply: Sizwe says: “I almost always wear more than one mascara, usually a combination of a lengthener and a thickener.”

* Use a bright eyeshadow, like white, to fake a well-rested look: Jemma says: She makes her eyes look awake with lash-defining mascara and a little bit of white eyeshadow dusted on her eyes’ inner corners.

* Perfect eye-opening winged liner, on-the-go: Kate says: “I start with a cat-eye and then I just blend. I put on both brown and navy. Navy went on this morning and (then) I layered the brown on while I was on the subway and continued to blend.” (Bollywood Country)
