I think having angular eyes or cat eyes contribute to people thinking I'm stuck up and bitchy. I'm not mean or bitchy at all, I'm actually shy and sensitive :(
Even just walking into a room I see girls scoffing at me before even knowing what kind of person I am. Even nice people seem overly cautious around me and think I'm irritable. I have had people tell me that they thought I was mean. I think my features also deter guys, because I don't have an approachable girl next door look to go along with my girl next door personality.
And makeup and fashion experts, do you know of any tips and tricks that can soften my look and features?
Sorry guys, I don't mean cat eye makeup with eyeliner, I mean naturally cat-like eyes. I don't wear eyeliner at all
Like Cromartie said, it could be more than just the appearance of your eyes, your expression and attitude really matters.
But if you want to get rid of the cat eye look or just the "mean look in general", just use less make up, don't darken the outer corners of your eyes, but lighten the inner corners and use soft, warm colors on your eyelids. Lighten the area under your eyebrows and work on your skin avoiding foundation.
Don't push it with he mascara either. A little bit, not to glue your eyelashes together and keep it darkest in the middle.
Keep the lip colors light and soft, even try to lighten the lips if they are too red naturally, like mine are.
I suggest some bangs if you think you would be comfortable with them, and a cute pin on the side, style your hair in a bun, braids, curl it.
As a man, I never understood the point of makeup, especially the cat eye look. Could you explain to me what it is supposed to portray. I know it's supposed to look like a cat but what is it supposed to do? Also, if you are confident with your body and face, don't let what others think of you, get to you. People are going to be people, just be you!
Softening your face would require an image of your face since the severity of the look would be somewhat important to know. I am not asking for a photo, but rather just informing you; taht aside I are you entirely sure it's just your eyes? Do you smile often? Do you stand tall? How do your hold your head? Etc. Etc. Generally speaking unless the very first time you meet someone you get this reaction it's a lot more than one feature.
