The Most Difficult Eyes for Makeup!
And while scientists would argue with me that I have dark brown eyes, I would argue back that they look and feel very black to me! Even on a sunny day, with the sun shining directly on them, they don't get any lighter.
And I am ok with that.
The problem is that I also have very light skin which means, I look nothing like Eva Longoria here.
(I believe dark eyes look better on dark skin than they do on light skin.)
But even so.
That's not the whole story for me.
If I just had dark eyes and light skin, I would know what to do with makeup.
Unfortunately, there is one more variable in this equation that are my eyes: they have no crease!
Dark eyes, light skin, no crease... first thing that jumps to your mind?
Well, most Asian eyes have no crease, but at least they have a nice flat area to play with, and to create the illusion of a crease if they wish to do so.
Plus, they point upwards and are great for a cat eye makeup.
While my eyes have no crease, they are not really comparable to Asian ones, because they have no flat surface nor do they point upwards. They are more heavy lidded.
So what kind of eyes do I have???
Well, the closest celebrity I can think of, unfortunately, is...
Ouch! I know...
But what can I do?
I was born with these eyes and my quest of finding the right eye makeup is never ending.
But I don't give up easy, and I'm actually thinking of sharing with you some of my success (and disaster) stories, to help out other dark eyes/light skin/heavy lidded girls out there.
Unless Tori and I are the only ones...
