While there is no eye type that is better than another, there are certainly tricks to make a look work for you.
Don’t shy away from trying new techniques; Juicy has highlighted few eye-deas for the most common four eye types, and what you need to remember:
<strong>Want close-set eyes to appear farther apart?</strong>
Instead of focusing on your lids, you will want to emphasize the outer edges of your eyes to make eyes appear farther away. Use liquid eyeliner and extend pass your outer eye - the thicker you extend it at the end, the better. Like small eyes, thin eyebrows can maximize the space around your eyes. You can even use a brow pencil to fill the edges of eyebrows out to give a longer appearance.
These eye types tend to be wide. They get away with using dark shades to make eyes appear appear smaller. Eyeliner under the eyes instead of over top is great technique to give these eyes a less prominent look. As a rule of thumb, light shades and thinner eyebrows tend to make them appear even bigger. However, if you are going for an over the top look, use eyelash extensions.
<strong>Small Eyes That Won't Pop?</strong>
Dark shades will bury your eyes and make them appear even smaller. Go for light to medium shades to widen up your eye. If you want to use darker shades make sure to apply them to the crease of your eye only and then use a blending technique. Use liquid eyeliner to widen up those eyes. Women with these type of eyes can get away with thinner eyebrows to open up space and make eyes appear bigger.
<strong>Prominent eyes that you'd like to minimize?</strong>
Those with prominent, or big eyes can benefit from darker shades which tend to make eyes appear smaller. Eyeliner under the eyes instead of over top is great technique to give eyes a less prominent look. As a rule of thumb, light shades and thinner eyebrows tend to make them big eyes appear even bigger.

<strong>Want to narrow wide-set eyes? </strong>
Medium to light shades should be applied to the middle to outer part of your eye lid, while darker shades can be used on the inside. For these eye types, well maintained, yet thicker eyebrows tend to work with making eyes look less farther apart. In this case, go easy on extending your eyebrows or eyeliner.
