1. Determine if you have deep set eyes: Take a pencil and and place one end on your brow bone and one end on your cheek. If your eye is set back behind the pencil, as opposed to right up on it, you have deep set eyes.

2. Apply eye shadow: Apply eye shadow on your eye lid directly above the pupil and on the inside corners. Use an eye shadow with shimmer to bring out the eye. CoverGirl Intense Shadowblast is great for this because it has both primer and shimmer. Apply the deepest shadow to the outside corners only.

3. Apply mascara: Like the darkest shade of eye shadow, apply the mascara to the outer corners of your lashes only. Here we've used CoverGirl Lashblast Length.

TIP: With deep set eyes dark circles under the eye or darkness on the lid is common. Cover these with concealer or corrector.
