It’s a myth that it’s hard to do makeup on people with monolid eyes. If you spend a good amount of time on Pinterest and Instagram, you might come across tutorials for monolids that actually work.

And no, I’m not talking about the floating eyeliner trick. Though it does work, it looks kind of strange when you close your eyes and you have an line of liquid eyeliner right in the middle of your lids.

1. Draw TWO eyeliners.

If you can’t pull off one because it just disappears, draw two and make the other one sparkle.

2. Open your eyes so you know where to start

It’s harder to figure out where to place your darkest shade when you have your eyes closed. Apply the color accordingly so you know it’ll show up when you open your eyes.

3. Contour your way to glory

Rather than spending all your time trying to draw the thickest eyeliner ever, try contouring the top part of your eyelid to create the illusion of depth and bigger eyes.

4. Extend your smokey eye a little higher on the lid and line your lower lashes

Similar to the contour tip, apply the crease colors a little higher up to create depth, and line your lower lashes so the color is consistent.

Pernah nggak sih ngalamin pas makeupan repot bgt harus bersihin kuas di tissue ato ganti kuas lain sebelum ganti warna eyeshadow biar warnanya nggak kecampur? Aku tuh saking sering ganti warna tiap makeupan jdnya nyetok kuas sampe banyak, tapi udah nyetok tetep aja repot krn kuas kotor jadi numpukkk. Kzl. Trus akhirnya aku ketemu produk yang bs bersihin kuas setiap mau ganti warna, sayangnya hrs pesen jauh-jauh dari US, berat diongkos sist! Trus kmrn aku br tau kalo ternyata lokal juga udah ada, namanya @swatch2switch cara pakenya praktis bgt dan ini ngurangin rasa berdosa setiap abis dandan krn tumpukan tissue yg menggunung udah berkurang :)) __________ @indobeautygram #indovlogger #ibv #indobeautyvlogger #indobeautygram #ivgbeauty @indovidgram #indovidgram #IVGbeauty #makeupclips #tutinnitut #tutorialmakeup #makeuptutorial #makeupvideo #videomakeup #tutinnituttutorial #motd #toocoolforschool #monolid #monolidmakeup #tutinnitutreview

5. Gear up on lashes

Lashes will bring your eye look up an extra notch. If you can’t do eyeliner, fake eyelashes might just be able to save you. This tip is also great for hooded eyes!

Anybody else just feels like checking out of the news lately? It feels like everyday, the crazies win and there’s a competition on who can be the biggest a**holes. 😖 The Ariana Grande concert full of young kids, the bus stop in Jakarta, the recent Ahok case…gah. I guess in the world seemed like it was going in such a positive direction with the election of Obama & Jokowi, and Ahok doing such a great job, and then suddenly, all the crazies started winning. The only thing keeping me hopeful is that Macron won so the entire world isn’t going crazy just yet. #soapbox Used @litcosmetics’ Lemon Tart, @moonshot_korea’s Jelly Pot in Moon Revenge, and @makeupstore’s Pollution!

6. One color eyeshadow + Shimmer

Own your monolid by swiping on a shimmery eyeshadow all over your lids. Yup, then you’re done! (As a double eyelid person, I can’t do this because the crease just gets in the way of a single color shadow look)

7. Fake a crease by cutting the crease

This really clever eyeshadow highlights the cut area of the cut-crease to give the illusion of a double eyelid. This look only uses neutral shadows, some shimmer, and a good nude eyeliner.

8. Amp up your eyeliner look

Don’t be afraid to go crazy with the eyeliner or the whole eye makeup! Makeup doesn’t have rules!

9. Focus on your lower lash line

While you can go absolutely crazy with your eye makeup, don’t forget to define your lower lash line. It will keep the look balanced and also open up your eyes a bit.

10. Use a good eye primer

When you’re working with lots of liner and shimmer, it’s best to invest in a good eye primer. This will keep your eye makeup from smudging your eyeliner from cracking.
