    Does eyeshadow a change with glasses? How do you fix a droopy eye on one side?

      With glasses no, but for a droopy eye, you’ll want to do a couple things!

      Try to angle your eyebrow so that the peak of it is above the outer edge of your pupil when looking straight. In terms of eyeshadow, place a darker triangle of brown in the corner and blend up into the crease. Only line the bottom lash line rim so it defines your eyes without drawing them down. Blend whatever colour of shadow you want onto the rest of the lid, and then place a bit of pearlescent shadow on the inner corners of you eyes. And then curl your lashes, or add false ones to open up your eyes even further!
