So basically go for three eye shadows, first the highlighter which you sweep across your browbones and inner corners of the eyes. Then, a medium brown eye shadow which you apply on the eyelids from the middle part to the end, extend it a bit outwards. And while packing the color on the eyelids apply it in a round way. And finally to create more contrast, use a dark brown eye shadow on the crease. Then take the eyeliner, and start lining from the middle part of your eyelids and extend it beyond the outer part of your eyes in a straight line.

How to apply eye makeup on protruding eyes – If you have protruding eyes, don’t use any highlighter on the inner corners of the eyes or the waterline. However, below the browbone apply some highlighter. Apply eyeliner very thickly from the inner corner to the outer corner and extend it in a straight line. The dark eyeliner on the lids will downplay the protruding shape of the eyes.

Apply the eyeliner on the eyelids, not in a thick way, and extend it out with a flick.
