Just like picking out an outfit that fits your body type, you should aim to wear makeup that accentuates your face shape. Knowing your eye shape lets you easily apply the shadows, liners and mascara that best suit you.
When you apply eyeshadow, often times you're applying it lower than you should when your head is upright. But, when you tilt your head up, you're more likely to apply color to the ideal shadowy section of your brow bone.
It's always a good idea to give your face that extra pop of light, but you gotta make sure that you're doing it in all the right places. "Brush on a powder highlighter above your eyebrow to give your eyes an instant lift, and below it to accentuate the eye," said Joanna Schlip, a celebrity makeup artist.
It might seem weird to put highlighter on your cheek, but trust that this makeup technique will brighten up your face and make your eye bone structure pop. "Use a shimmery liquid formula to create a check mark shape to highlight your cheekbones," said Gilbert Soliz, a Sephora makeup artist.
