The Almond Eye

Hi Guys & Dolls,

Makeup for me is about telling a story. The story of the almond eye is powerful, elegant, and sexy. They don’t ask for your attention they command it. The look is bold and graphic, flowing with the eye shape, enhancing it, redefining the scale. The matte black is a stunning look on it’s own, but by adding a tasteful amount of glitter it becomes luxurious. By pairing the bold eyes with a nude or mostly-nude face, the story is edited and clear- the eyes have it.

Who this look is great for: Nearly everyone, but particularly if you have smaller eyes. The shape draws the eyes out giving them a bit more real estate, the bold color pulls focus, and by leaving the inner rims bare if creates the illusion that your eyes are wider. If you have very red or pink inner rims line with white.

Who might this not work for : This might not work for you if you have a very prominent ocular(brow) bone, particularly if it is strong on the side of your eye as it will interfere with the shape.

I encourage you all to try it- unleash your inner vixen.
