Don't do it: 5 makeup mistakes for droopy eyelids (and how to avoid them)
Droopy eyelids are a common feature. Some people have it from birth, while others get it from stress, overwork, unhealthy diet, unsuccessful botulinum therapy, or bad habits. Is it a "sentence"? No, you don't have to go under the surgical scalpel to correct droopy eyelids. Makeup will help with this.
What makeup mistakes should you avoid if you want to make your eyes more expressive? Read in the material of OBOZ.UA.
1. Applying makeup with your eyes closed
Often women apply makeup while alternately closing their eyes. And in vain. At first, you perfectly blend the shadows and draw the arrows, and only then you realize that "all the efforts" are hidden behind your eyelids. It's better to put on makeup while looking in the mirror with both eyes: this way you'll see the result immediately.
2. Clear/wide arrows
If you don't have the "droopy eyelids" feature (which is unlikely if you're reading this), then wide and clear arrows really make your eyes look more expressive. Otherwise, it will have the opposite effect - it will visually add age, make your eyelids heavier, and make your makeup look untidy. How to avoid this? Use an easily blendable eye shadow to emphasize the lash line.
3. Poor shading
Sharp eyeshadow contours can ruin any makeup look because they emphasize droopy eyelids. So, always use high-quality blending brushes that are shaped like a torch or a barrel with a rounded head. As for eyeshadow, go for soft, not too saturated colors.
4. Straight eyebrow line
If the eyes are the "mirror of the soul," then the eyebrows are an exquisite frame for them. And it is the shape of the eyebrows that can correct droopy eyelids: a slight bend visually lifts them. However, it is better not to make them too straight or with excessive curvature: the former will emphasize the eyelids, and the latter will look as if you are constantly surprised.
5. Excessive contrast
Another common mistake is overly bright makeup on the droopy eyelids. This emphasizes the peculiarities of the eye structure. Of course, you shouldn't limit yourself to nude makeup. Just choose soft and muted shades.
