How to draw arrows in eye makeup?
The length, thickness and intensity of the arrowsare determined on the basis of what effect should be obtained. So, if the eyes have an ideal shape, then you can "wear" any arrows - under the mood. But if you need to slightly adjust the shape and size of the eyes, you can follow the following recommendations:
- for close-set eyes to put a contour on 1/3 length along a line of growth of eyelashes on the top century plus on request the same line to put and on the lower eyelid - this method visually expands eyes;
- at wide-set eyes should be an intensive line from the inner corner to the outside along the entire length of the line of growth of the eyelashes;
- at round eyes use a dark pencil and completely outline the contour of the eyes and on the upper and lower eyelid, the line of the contour carefully shade;
- at little eyes It is necessary to use a light line, leading the line through the upper eyelid.
The lower eyelid, as a rule, is rarely reducedcompletely. However, if you draw a pencil-kayal of white or light bodily hue the lower eyelid along the inner edge, this technique will make the eyes visually wider.
Drawing arrows on the eyes, it should be remembered that the line should gradually thicken in the direction from the inner corner of the eye to the outer one. The thickness of the line in the upper eyelid should be greater than the thickness of the line at the bottom.

Using a cotton swab dipped in a toolfor make-up, you can remove possible blemishes and irregularities. If the line turned out to be very uneven, then you can fix it by putting dark shadows over the arrows and carefully shading them.
