Working with small set eyes

I was working with a client the other day getting her ready for the Golden Globes. She is a very beautiful, mature woman with lovely skin and stunning green eyes. However her eyes are on the smaller side so I suggested we line them with a thin pencil. I used dark green instead of black to keep it softer. We then applied a light beige all over her lid and used lots of mascara to really give the illusion of opening the eye. By keeping the lid color light and simple, the eyes will appear larger and if your eyes are closer together make sure to pull that lid color to the inner corners of the eyes. If you want to get a little more dramatic apply individual lashes to the outer corners of the eyes as a final touch.
Simple, but truly magical!
