What are Wide Set Eyes?
Wide Set Eyes are basically when there is a wide gap between both eyes, often when both eyes are more than a single eye's width apart (measured from corner to corner).
According to some, it gives off a more youthful appearance – lucky you! On the contrary, close-set eyes are when the gap between your eyes is less than an eye width apart (just FYI).
How Can You Tell if You Have Wide Set Eyes?
Look face on into the mirror and carefully measure the length of your eyes (you can do this with your fingers by placing one digit at either end of your eye - just make sure they’re clean before putting them on your face). Then compare this length with the distance between the end corner (closest to your nose) of one eye, to the nearest corner of the next.
If the distance is longer than the width you’ve measured, then you’ve almost certainly got wide set eyes.
Still not sure what we mean? We recommend, then, having a look at some pictures of:

- Oprah Winfrey

Cosmetic Choices for Wide Set Eyes
Do you have wide set eyes and wear makeup? Do you find it difficult to apply the right techniques with your eyeliner and eyeshadow, to really make your features pop and create a stunning WOW moment with your look? Are you looking for help to make your eyebrows really work to accentuate your features (rather than highlight what you don’t want to share)?
We’re going to help you with some helpful hints and advice, so if you want to accessorise your look with makeup, you’ll know exactly what to do to look amazing!
Applying Eyeliner to Wide Set Eyes
Wide set eyes can be tricky to line, too much emphasis or strong lining may make your facial proportions seem out of balance, or make the eyes feel even further apart.
The trick here is to just line the inner halves of your eyes, defining along the top and bottom lash lines. You might find it easier to use an eyeliner pencil or soft kohl, rather than liquid eyeliner, so you can easily blend and smudge in appropriate areas.
For a more dramatic look, you can use a technique that works for most large eye shapes, that is to close in the space with dark colours along the lash and waterline, then at the tear duct, lift up for a great flick at the edge! You can also do the same on the underneath eye line (close to the lash line) and blend it if you want.
Wide set and larger eyes can allow for much more drama and enthusiastic application of eyeliner, so experiment and see what works for your mood!
Getting Your Eyebrows on Point
When it comes to the eyebrows, ensure you keep them thick and filled, while bringing them closer to the nose ridge, this way it creates an illusion of close-set eyes.
To create the illusion of less distance, you need to carefully manage your brows. Drawing the eyebrows inwards and closer can make the distance seem a lot smaller - instead of plucking between the brows, start filling in front of them to get a fuller, softer, natural look.
Thicker brows pair beautifully with luscious long lashes, and softer natural or warm shades - and because you can use eyeliner and eyeshadow in combination with your brow shaping and new false lashes, it’s up to you how much you want to adjust your style, and how much differently you want your face to look (within reason, of course)!
Applying Eyeshadow to Wide Set Eyes
If you want to enhance your natural beauty even further, we recommend a simple makeup trick for far Wide Set Eyes: when applying eyeshadow, ensure you cover the inner corner of your eyes with dark shades and fade towards the outer corner.
By doing this it visually reduces the distance between your eyes, making your eyes look narrower, the attention is then being drawn to the inner corner.
People with other eye shapes will probably tell you that you’re doing it back-to-front, but don’t worry - you’re not! Other eye shapes tend to have eyeshadow applied with light or shimmery shades on the inner half of the eyelid, and then get darker as it's blended outwards - but for wide eyes, it really is the reverse!
For a more natural or faux-natural (made up to look makeup free) look, skin tones, nudes, and lighter colours are a good choice - these can either be ombre and blended (as described above) with the darker natural shades in the middle, or applied as a single layer - matte colours can look a bit much, so look at shimmering shades or eyeshadows with a little extra finish.
