Posted on

Creating a perfect Eye makeup is not an easy task at all even for the seasoned beauty buffs. If you are having trouble in decoding all those tricky makeup tutorials then you are at the right place. In this article we share an easy guide to each part of the eye in order to make you understand where all those eyeliners, mascaras, eye shadows should go.

Brow Bone/Highlight

Add a matte or shimmery pale eye shadow directly under your brows to highlight your brows and to open up your area.




Your main shades of eye shadow typically go on your eyelid but here you can show your creativity with your eyeliner.


Apply darker shades of eye shadow between your brow bone and eyelid, right along your eye socket, adds dimension to your eye. Tip: If you are having hooded eyes then you have an advantage of playing with different placements for crease shadow, opening your eyes after each test to see which placement makes your crease shadow visible.


Outer V

The eyeliner or deeper shades of eye shadow are applied in “V” shape at the outermost corner of the eye. For a softer effect blend your makeup into “C” shape.

Upper Lashline

Upper Lashline is at the Right along and above the edges of your upper eyelid where your eyelashes begin. Eyeliner or eye shadow or even mascara can be applied to define your eyes.



It is the inner rim of the eye. Add a smoky look or pale nude eyeliner to make your eyes look wider and more awake.


Lower Lashline

Lower lashline is the area just below the waterline where liner and shadow can be applied to define your eyes.


Tear Duct

Tear Duct is the inner corner of the eye at which you can add a little pale or shimmery shadow to open things up.
