The Brow Bone and Lid Area of the Many Eye Shapes

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post other than the place of origin, it has been stolen.*


When you look into the mirror or even when you allow your brush to apply eyeshadow, what you see is not exactly what you want.  Take for example the brow bone and lid.  These two parts of the eyes really change with age.

What you did when you were a teen may have worked splendidly with makeup.  Makeup could be applied without much thought.  That is fine and that is what youth is all about, to have fun.  However, as you know everyone grows old, makeup isn't the same.  Your lid area appears to have shrunk while the brow area has expanded.  In reality, the bone structure has settled and created what I call a "brow bone bulge" (there is probably a more anatomically correct name).  

The brow bone and the lid are the two areas which lie on opposites sides of the orbital ridge.

Brow Bone Bulge


I really shouldn't call it a bulge, but calling it a protrusion sounds like a unicorn horn or something.  Anyway, I think many of you are aware of this area, especially when it comes to photos.  This, by default is automatically highlighted no matter what. To emphasize this area with a highlighter will make the "bulge" look more prominent.  The solution is really to strategically shade this area to deemphasize it.

Here is the bone structure or bulge area on the many different eyes shapes.

Lid Area


Your lid is another important part of your eyes. What you think is your lid can really make or break the complete eye look. This area is larger than what you perceive it to be. It is important to open up this area for the illusion of bigger eyes and a wide-awake look.
