For most of us, finding the perfect eye makeup for deep-set eyes is a daunting task. Although, if you learn and incorporate specific ways of applying makeup on your eyes, the task can be accomplished.

You don't have to be a seasoned makeup artist to apply flawless makeup. Just follow the tips and techniques mentioned in the article to accentuate those gorgeous deep-set eyes.

Makeup Tricks for Deep-set Eyes

In order to brighten your eyes, it is essential to perfect some makeup tricks. Take a look at the following step-by-step guide on how to apply makeup for deep-set eyes.

1. Primer

An eyelid primer should be applied before the eye shadow goes on. Following this simple, yet crucial step ensures that your eye makeup doesn't smudge, shift, or collect at the eye creases. Apart from this, it helps keep the makeup intact for a longer period of time, and create a smooth and even base while applying the eyeshadow.

If you don't feel comfortable using a brush, it's alright; use the middle finger instead. Here are the steps on applying the primer correctly.

Step 1 - Take a small amount of primer on a clean eye shader brush.

Step 2 - Using gentle, long swiping strokes, start to apply the primer from the inner corner of your eye, coming outward. Only apply a single, even layer of primer.

Apply Primer over Entire Eye

Step 3 - Once the primer is on, let it dry completely before you move to the next part.

2. Concealer

To brighten up a tired face, disguise dark circles, correct any discoloration, and/or cover up blemishes, a concealer is the perfect weapon. It is important to know that when you apply the color, it has to blend with your skin tone so that it doesn't seem obvious. So, make sure you choose the concealer from a good brand.

The concealer goes on prior to the foundation. So, first and foremost, clean and moisturize your skin before you begin. Also, select a shade that helps even out your skin tone. Here are the steps on applying the concealer correctly.

Step 1 - Load the brush with a little bit of concealer, and start from the inner corner of your eye.

Apply Concealer Under Eye

Step 2 - Dab the brush upward near the bridge of your nose. Then, dab downward, following the area below the bottom lid in a semi-circular shape.

Step 3 - Finally, use your ring finger to blend the concealer properly onto the skin. If you have oily skin, use a translucent pressed powder to set the concealer in.

3. Eyeshadow

The technique used to apply eyeshadow will have a huge impact on how you appear. Since your brow bone extends farther out than your eye shape, we need to use an eyeshadow to highlight the eyelids as much as possible.

Remember two essential points―avoid highlighting your brow bone and refrain from using extremely dark eyeshadow directly over the eyelids. Here are the steps on applying eyeshadow correctly.

Step 1 - Load the base shadow brush with a light, non-shimmery shadow, and apply a single, smooth layer along the corner of the lower lashes and over the eyelid.

Step 2 - Load the blending brush with a slightly darker shadow, and sweep the color from the middle of the eyelid and going outward.

Apply Midtone Shadow

Step 3 - Load the contour brush with a brighter (not necessarily darker) shadow, and sweep it at the outer corner of your upper lash line. Then, go out and upward toward the bottom edge of the brow bone.

4. Eyeliner

Don't shy away from applying an eyeliner. Even though there are a hundred different eyeliner styles, there is a way to apply for deep-set eyes.

Choose either a pencil or a liquid eyeliner with a thin tip. Here are the steps on applying the eyeliner correctly.

Step 1 - Start from the middle (or a bit further in) of the upper lash line to apply a thin eyeliner. While putting on eyeliner, make sure that you keep it thin and closer to the lash line.

Step 2 - If you want, use a pencil eyeliner to apply a thin line on the bottom lash line.

5. Lash Curler and Mascara

A mascara always, always goes after you're done applying the eyeshadow and eyeliner. Of course, there is no one way to apply mascara. However, there are a few tried and tested (plus, successful) ways to get it right. Plus, for women who aren't gifted with naturally-curled lashes, an eyelash curler is their refuge.

Here are the steps on using the lash curler and applying the mascara correctly.

Step 1 - Insert your lashes in an open curler, and gently pinch (and not pull) at the lash line.

Step 2 - Now comes the mascara. But first, take a clean tissue paper to wipe the wand to remove excess product off it. This helps eliminate clumps over your lashes.

Smear Mascara

Step 3 - Hold the wand horizontally, and apply mascara as you pull your lashes inward (towards your nose); do this 3 times.

Apply Mascara Inwards

Step 4 - Hold the wand horizontally, and apply mascara as you pull your lashes outward (away from the nose); do this 3 times. This step will help fan your lashes out.

Apply Mascara Outward

Step 5 - Finally, hold the wand diagonally and apply mascara across the bottom lashes.

Apply Mascara on Bottom Lashes

With so many things to remember, the entire process may leave you overwhelmed. Of course, not always do we have the time to sit in front of our mirrors and spend 10, 15, or even 20 minutes to apply makeup. However, once you get the hang of it, understand exactly how these techniques work, the total amount of time spent will reduce drastically.
