Choose the best concealer that will offer the right cover for a yellowish tone. Try to find a concealer that is darker than you think you need, and that contain orange pigments.

Eye Makeup

The key to bring out the best of your small eyelids is to use the perfect combination of eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow. Choosing the right eyeshadow depends on whether you would like a spectacular or a more casual look.

Usually olive skin tones look fabulously with prune, copper, dark brown and beige shades. Apply these colors with confidence in order to accentuate the look and create the impression of deep-set eyes. Keep away of eye shadows that have yellowish undertones, these will only spoil your look, and make you look washed out. Other favorable options could be purple, bright lilac, dark blue and wine tones.

Use eyeliner to correct the proportion differences and to create a frame around the eyes. Droopy eyelids can be easily corrected with a few streak of liner. This will definitely lift the eye area. You can either use black, purple or navy eyeliner to outline the shape of the eyes. If you wiggle a kohl pencil between the lashes it will have the same dazzling effect as traditional black tinted eyeliner.

A volume or long lash mascara will top the eye makeup and will add volume to the often very straight eyelashes. Those who were not blessed with curvy lashes can use this trick to still provide their look with a mysterious aura. Make it 2 coats for the guaranteed success.

Have fun!
