Green and Pink look using Hi-Fi Cosmetics

I realize my eye areas aren't very symmetrical at all. One eyebrow is higher than the other and I have much more of a fold in one eye than the other. I'm certainly not nitpicking at my flaws or fishing for compliments from anyone. We all have flaws. It's a part of life. I just acknowledge that I have them and try to work my way around them. It's my face so I gotta work with it, ya know? However, it makes doing these types of looks sort of difficult. Do I do each eye to how each eye looks best? Should I make one eye match the other eye...and which one? So annoying. I typically try to match my left eye makeup to my right, but it's still not easy to make them look even since the shape of my eyes are significantly different from the other. Anyone else have weird eye areas that are hard to work with sometimes?

  1. I love how you did this! The dark color on the edge is very, very awesome!

    I know what you mean about your eyes being different, mine are as well. Despite being very, very British (my mom was born there), I almost have monolids thanks to my dad. We are a squinty peoples XD (I think I posted a pic of my dad and me at my wedding...we have big chipmunk cheeks & the same eyes, its so weird!) I also had a really, really terrible boyfriend in highschool that busted my left eye. The scar is basically gone, but it left my lid a weird shape, sort of wavy-like. That's why I almost always take pictures of only one eye...I'm a bit sensitive about it, but no one really says anything. I never noticed your eyes were different, but I know to ourselves, those flaws are noticable. Does it help that I think you are beautiful? XD

  2. I love this! I have sacrelicious coming to me and I have spike the punch, I gotta try this :)

  3. This look is so springish, I love it.

    About being uneven... when I was 14 only my right armpit would get hairy. My left one didn't get any hair until like a year later. Probably TMI, haha, but it's so weird!

  4. I love what you did with these colors. I never would have thought to put them together until now! Very springy! :)

    I have the exact same symmetry issue! When I was in the first grade, I had an accident that required a lot of stitches under my left brow. I guess when they pulled it together to stitch it, they basically gave me a brow lift, because that one is WAY higher than the other. I also have more visible lid on that eye, probably due to the "lift", so I have a really hard time making them match as well. And I have to get my brows shaped differently so they look a bit more symmetrical. I guess, in a nutshell, I feel your pain!

    However, you are LOVELY, and I wouldn't have even noticed if you didn't mention it. :)

  5. This is so different and lovely. My fav part is the lip though - great color and shine!

  6. Lisa Kate,
    Thank you! And that really sucks about ur boyfriend. I hate stuff like that. So terrible! I'm sorry you had to deal with that. :-(
    I haven't noticed anything in your pics either. It's probably something you are more aware of than anyone else. Which is normal. You are so beautiful!

    You should try it! Thank you. :-)

    Hee hee! Armpit hair is so funny! I don't think I've ever had anything like that. So interesting and weird! Are the armpits even now? :-P

    That's essentially how my eye is...but not from an accident. So my eyes are naturally annoying. So in pictures I do sort of raise my eyebrows to make it look more even. Otherwise, it sometimes is super noticeable and I look like I'm making a goofy face! Hee hee. Thank you!

    Thank you. :-) Yes, this is such a juicy lippy. I love the colour.

  7. I LOVE that lipstick!

    Your eye make-up looks fantastic! I can't do anything other than a smokey eye. LOL!


    P. S. Great blog name!

  8. Hate Gene,
    Thanks. :-) Smokey eyes are great. You can still use various colours and combos to switch it up a bit. :-)

  9. Um...hee hee...I meant Kate Gene...NOT Hate Gene. XD

  10. I know I'm very unfashionably late to this party but I was going through your Hi Fi Cosmetics posts and came across this one and needed to comment.

    I never actually noticed your eyes being different from one another and I really love your attention to detail in your makeup application. Reading your blog and seeing your photos inspires me.

    My eyes are very assymetrical. The left side is quite a bit higher than my right and I think my left eye is larger as well. I never paid much attention to it until I started doing FOTDs about 2+ years ago. Now, I'm very tuned in to my flaws since I see photos of myself (and in close-up) on a regular basis. I don't think I've ever mentioned my "off" eyes before because I figure if I never mention it, no one will notice (now the cat's out of the bag *gasp*).

    I mean, how many times has a friend pointed out that they have a huge zit on their chin and you didn't even notice it until they told you?

    I apply makeup to suit each eye. I don't know how I would go about making them look more even. I also can't raise my right eyebrow to make it look more even with the left higher one because it's my left brow that naturally wants to go up. I have a bad habit of giving a "look" by raising that brow (like Ice Cube's screwface). At my age, I'm just learning to love and accept myself perceived flaws and all.
