Prominent eyes

Woooohhhhooooo!!! Thank the universe for giving you prominent eyes, because you can have so much fun playing with makeup.


Prominent eyes have the most visible eyelid which means you can express yourself with colours that will take your looks to the next level.


Maybe you’ve already experimented with the cut crease makeup techniques and wondered why they don’t suit you.


You’ve probably seen thousands of girls on Youtube pulling off the perfect cut crease look, but when you’ve tried it the end result doesn’t come close and I know how disappointing that can feel.


Fortunately, it has nothing to do with your makeup skills.


Even top makeup artists CAN'T produce a cut crease makeup look that works on prominent eyes.


Instead, let's explore your wonderful uniqueness with an awesome technique that will spice up your makeup game and win you compliments over and over again.

Smokey eyes

This is a look that can't be worn by girls with deep set eyes, because it would make them look like a raccoon.




Your time to shine Chicabella!


Get your brushes and let's put on some makeup.


Start off by applying a dark eyeshadow all over the eyelid up to a couple of millimetres from the crease, making a half circle shape.


Because you're working with dark eyeshadow, make sure to kick the brush prior to the application so that the residue of the eyeshadow doesn't end up on your under eye area.


You can do the same by swirling the brush on your hand first.  


Next dab the brush into the middle colour and apply it onto the crease, fading it into the dark eyeshadow and slightly over the crease.


The main aim of this look is to gradually blend the three colours (light, middle and dark) together from the lash line to the brow bone.


The final step in building a lovely colour gradient on your eyes is to apply a light eyeshadow above the crease, blending it into the middle colour and slightly onto the brow bone. 


To finish the look you can use any of the following techniques, but for a classic smokey eye, apply a dark eyeshadow all over the lower lid and blend it with a middle colour.


You can also use the same three colours on the bottom lid, but make sure you use small blending brushes so that you don't end up with the dreaded raccoons eyes.  



For a fresh, bubbly look apply a line of light eyeshadow all over the lower part of the eye. This will really open your eyes and visually bring them forward.



For a more sophisticated look, connect the upper lid with the lower lid by applying a dark eyeshadow on the outer 1/5 of the lower lash line, followed by middle or light colour.


This is how you will achieve a more sculpted, cat-eye look.


Night out

If you want to add some drama, gradually blend all three eyeshadows together from dark, to middle, to light.


The darker you make the eye on the outer corner, the more party eyes you will have and the same is true for a light/shimmery colour around the tear dot. 


Going to the lower lash line now, you have various options...

Lower lashline

Fashion makeup on protruding eyes

Remember when I told you how lucky you are having prominent eyes?


Well, here's another makeup technique that’s easy to use and brings a stunning result. 


First, apply a dark eyeshadow on the outer corner of the upper eyelid, concentrating the intensity of the colour close to the lash line.


Blend it well towards the inner corner of the eye.


The way you finish the outer edge is your personal preference.


For a more sculpted look, leave the edges sharp and for a softer look, blend it thoroughly. 


Apply a middle colour to the centre of the eyelid in an angled stripe and blend the edges in all directions.


As this look requires blended edges, build the colour intensity gradually. It is way easier to add colour than it is to take it off.  


Now let's make your eyes pop so that you show your lovely soul to the world.


Cover the start of the lid with a light colour, or shimmery colour if you prefer, and blend it over the middle colour and up.


Leave the inner part of the lid unblended and with a soft edge.


The bright colour will make your eyes pop without affecting the appearance of your nose.


Finish the look by using one of the lower eyelid makeup techniques as described above and remember, practise makes perfect.


Trust me, girls you see on Instagram have invested a lot of time and effort in perfecting their skills, so be prepared to keep working on it if you want to achieve the same.


Don’t give up and soon enough you too will be rocking the makeup styles others can only dream of wearing.
