The image above shows how round eyes can be enhanced to appear more cat-like with dark eyeshadow to the socket line and eyeliner close to the lash line. False lashes can give a wow effect, especially when applied to just the outer corner of the eyes.

Close Set Eyes


Highlighter used to create the look of wider set eyes. Lighter eyeshadow highlighting under the lower lashes. Darker colour eyeshadow used to fan outwards meeting highlighter which expands the under brow area.


Prominent Eyes

With prominent eyes, its all about under brow bone highlighting to create a contrast with the eyelid area helping to draw your glance upwards. With prominent eyes, its important to have impeccable defined brows.

    I have done a few courses at the Cambridge and London venues and loved all of them. Staff is very friendly and professional at the same time which makes it easy to learn the theory and also the techniques. Teachers pay attention to each student and gives honest advises and support. I highly recommend The Beauty Academy for everyone.

    I’m currently doing my VCTC Level 2 & 3 with The Beauty Academy in Birmingham and I am loving all of my courses. I’ve had the pleasure of having both Yvonne and Katy for coursesĀ  and they’re both attentive to myself and the other students, I feel very supported… You simply cannot fault the phenomenal tutors. The support team for the coursework is great and they’re always there to help! Chloe and Vicky at head office have both been extremely helpful in my journey so far. Thank you to everyone at The Beauty Academy.
