FOTD: Creating a Subtle Double Eyelid

by Roxanne C.

Not everyone’s blessed with obvious double eyelids. Here is a way you can enhance yours if you already have them. If you don’t, you can also try this out since it’s not a drastic black marker-on-paper kind of drawing.


A subtle double eyelid that's easy to create.


Love those lashes!


The trick here is to use a brown eyeshadow (or brow powder) to subtly draw in a double eyelid of your own. If you already have double lids, you can draw the line a little further out from where they naturally end to create the illusion of more of a double lid. Smudge it a little to create a softer effect. The key word here is “subtle.” Using eyeliner would be too contrasting.
