Found this on a random google search. I have deep set eyes as well and I basically do what this lady recommends whenever I do makeup. Anything else makes my eyes look dark, heavy, tired, old. Sigh… But this works brilliantly. Opens your eyes up, makes them pop without weighing them down:


Hooded eyes mean that the eyelids appear somewhat droopy. Another name for it is “heavy lidded.” Deep set eyes seem to sit back in the sockets. They are the polar opposite to protruding eyes which sit way forward. When it comes to makeup, the idea for you is to open up the eyes and draw attention away from the eyelid. Draw more attention to the eyebrow by keeping them full (but well groomed and arched!) Use light or neutral shades all over the eyelid, and use a darker one towards the outer corners. Use a bit of eyeliner to create a “flick” at the outer corners. Not too big though! To make your eyes look further apart and better shaped, coat all your eyelashes with a thin coat of mascara and then really go all out at the outer corners with a couple of thicker layers! Focus on coating the bottom eyelashes and if you want to use eyeliner, draw a line on the bottom lid, more towards the outer edge. Try to keep any dark shadow and eyeliner from the inner corners of your eyes or else you will make them seem closer together!!! Focus on using a stong lip shade or blusher as well, as the attention will not be on the deep set nature of your eyes. Use pale tones in general to bring your eyes forward! Soft purples are good shades that work well on any coloured eyes, and are not too dark.

I have them as well, and when I don’t get enough sleep, I look twice as tired!

This one is really great, and it’s done on a chart not on a person so there isn’t as much fidgeting around and all that, which some find distracting and hard to follow in video tutorials.

Basically, as the last poster said, you want to de-emphasize the fold of skin that hangs over onto the eyelid and make the area look lifted and brighter–a bit of highlighter on the brow bone can’t hurt, either!
