Considered the classic eye shape for their symmetry, almond eyes are the most common eye shape. Any look that you see on celebs you can copy on these balanced eyes. Celebs including Sienna Miller and Selena Gomez know that sometimes less eye makeup is more compelling. Follow their lead and lighten up.

Sweep a light, neutral shade over your eye from your lash to your brow bone. Pick a shade that matches your skin tone; this gets you an even base for your light, springy look. You can go in a few directions once you’ve got the base, so pick and choose to match your mood or your style.

Add a shimmery, sparkly color on top of the neutral base. Pick a light hue, like silver, champagne or another light metallic. Sweep the color over the inner region of your eye, both above and below the eye. Subtle shimmer for a light look.

Try a pastel hue instead of a shimmer shade. Apply a bright hue such as pink or purple, over your neutral base, working along the last line. Create an ombre effect by slowly going lighter as you work up toward the brow bone. Your eyes will be playful, flirty and still light.

Coat your lashes with mascara to extend the length. If you’re in a super simple mood, just apply the neutral base to your eyes and add a coat of deep mascara. Understated and sophisticated, as Sienna Miller knows!
