TikTok’s Inverted Filter Got You Down? Follow These Tips to Learn How You Can Even Out Your Features With MakeupJuly 28, 2021
Many of us are more attuned to our facial asymmetries than ever, thanks to hours spent staring at ourselves on video calls or having taken the viral TikTok inverted filter for a spin. Facial asymmetries, like uneven eyes, nose, lips and face, are only natural, but makeup — when applied strategically — can help make certain areas look more proportional. Ahead, find some of the best makeup tips for correcting facial asymmetries.
If you have uneven or hooded eyes, this tutorial by Smitha Deepak is a must-watch. She explains that one of her eyes is more hooded than the other, so to give the hooded eye a lifted look, she slightly raises the arch of her eyebrow using an eyebrow pencil. We like the Maybelline New York Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil for this. Then, she uses a concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Waterproof Concealer, on both eyelids to correct the darkness and shadows that contribute to her eyes looking uneven. After that, she dips a small flat fluffy brush into purple eyeshadow and starts applying it along the less hooded eye’s crease before replicating the shape on her hooded eye to define it and give the impression of more lid space.
