How to Hide Asymmetrical Eyes With Makeup

By Michelle L. Scion

The human body is asymmetrical by nature. From the top of our head to the tips of our toes, most of us have parts that are not quite equally the same. Although mother nature dealt most of us with this hand, there are times when we want to bring more balance to our features. Using simple makeup to hide asymmetrical eyes is relatively easy by using a few tricks and guidelines.

Step 1

Apply liquid eyeliner to each eye. Start at inner part of the eye and move towards the outer edge, making the eyeliner thicker towards the outer corner. Apply the eyeliner thicker on the smaller eye, to give the illusion of both eyes being the same size.


Step 2

Add eyeshadow to the eyes. Place darker eyeshadow on the crease of the smaller eyelid to match the other eye. Soften and blend the makeup lines really well, avoiding precise, clean-edged lines that may attract attention to the asymmetry.


Step 3

Curl your eyelashes. Use the curlers, especially for the smaller eye's upper lashes, to open the eye. This gives the eye look bigger, and makes the eyes appear to be the same size.


Step 4

Affix false eyelashes to the outer corners of your upper eyelids. Dip the end of the false lashes into lash glue. Press into the upper lash line and hold for 30 seconds. Apply one coat of mascara to bond the eyelashes together. Creating bold lashes detracts from the asymmetry and gives your onlookers something else to focus on instead.
