How to Lift Drooping Eyelids Using Makeup | Tip Off Tuesday

Drooping or low eyelids can be visually lifted using makeup to correct the look.  Obviously this is no miracle, we won't be picking up a scalpel or anything just using a little cosmetic correction technique. 
  • Keep the under area of the outer brow tweezed to provide a better arch.
  • Use eyeshadow to shade along the eyelid fold, blend and smudge outward.
  • Place highlighter directly under and along the eyebrow arch.
  • Eyeliner should be applied very thin and thickened slightly at the outside corner in a point to provide a lifted look.
The RIGHT eye pictured marked R has the eyebrows tweezed less and no highlighter added.
The LEFT eye pictured marked L was tweezed using the method described above and the highlighter was added along the arch.

In doing the outlined steps above you keep the attention from drawing downward and away from the lowering eyelid.
Highlighter on the arch of the brow is a nice way to showcase any eye type.  Keep those eyebrows looking precise and held in place using this DIY brow gel.

side note:  I realize my eyelids aren't exactly hanging low but you get the idea of how you can open and lift the space.


  1. That is exactly what I was thinking...you needed a dropping eyelid model for this one. ;o)
