    I have really round eyes and droopy eyelids. Any suggestion on making my eyes look not wider but less droppy when doing a classic look IE in the crease (my crease is covered by skin). HELP

    My understanding is that the reason the crease is darkened is to create contrast, and with lids like yours (and mine btw) there's no need to do this because the contrast is created naturally.

    Honey you don't have droopy eyelids, you just have deep-set eyelids and they are beautiful! If you are looking to create the illusion of a bigger widder eye then you just take your eyes shadow placement a bit above your natural crease. The easiest way to do this is to apply your shadow in the crease and use a very fluffy crease brush to blend it. The fluffier the brush the better because it will "smoke" the color upward creating that pulled effect you want.

    I think it looks fab!

    I have big round eyes, too. Pretty much the same as you. I´d like to post a close up photo how I do my make up, however as I wear false lashes on all my photos you don´t really see that much of where I placed the eye-shadow and stuff :(

    you look beautiful!

    I have big eyes too and my lovely sis often refers to my big 'droopy' eyes, men seem to like them though!

    I have deep set, almond shaped eyes. I almost never put a contrasting eye shadow in the crease of my eyelid because it just always looks weird. I usually pick a pretty neutral color and sweep it across my lids and then I dot it in the inside corner of my eye by the tear duct. This helps to open up my eyes. I also only line my top eyelid, and never line my bottom lashes (the same for mascara application). It helps to open up your eyes as well. Perhaps these same tricks would work for round deep set eyes?
