Eye Shape Please
I feel that I have almond shaped, close set, protruding eyes which I absolutely hate! I feel like dark make-up makes them recede more (which I like), but then I get the gothic comments. Help!
Your eyes seem a little more deep set than protruding, so the dark colors you're using are making them seem even deeper, which is good if you like it!
Maybe try gel/cream versions of the eyeshadow so that it's not flat.
To make dark colors work for you, keep them on the lid.
If you're looking goth and don't want to, perhaps you're putting on liner too thick or smudging the colors too widely around your eye.
If you line your bottom lashes, don't smudge, but rather use a brush to blend it.
Also, try unifying the area under the eye with concealer, or foundation and highlighter. That will brighten the area, and the darker makeup will probably then look better.
