The eyes that are bigger usually appear to make you look younger and awake. All eye shapes are beautiful, don’t get me wrong! There are many people with small almond-shaped eyes; however, there are quite a few people who have complimented them! Not all of us have big eyes. However, we can always create an illusion by using clever makeup techniques.
Here we will take you through some simple tips and tricks that help make your eyes look bigger.
Praise Those Eyebrows
The eyebrows make all the difference, so take a trip to the salon at frequent intervals, and keep your brows in good shape all the time. Follow the natural shape of your eyes. For those who want to keep their brows bold, bear in mind that you have to maximize the space you have so that it creates an illusion of bigger looking eyes. Bold, thick, and beautiful brows bring attention to the eyes. The difference between natural brows and over-tweezed arches is that the natural makes one look more innocent, while the latter makes you appear older.
Expert’s Tip: To get those full and expressive brows, brush them up with clear brow mascara.
Light Neutral Colored Eye Shadow
Use neutral and light eyeshadows. Follow the rule of contouring. Light colors for the areas that you want the light to reflect and darker shades for the areas you want to push back. Using light colors at the center of the eyelids brings them forward. Pick up some product with a brush, tap the excess off and gently apply at the center of the eyelids.
Expert’s Tip: The shadow can be shimmery or of matte finish; it doesn’t matter as long as it is light in color.
Say No To Under Eye Dark Circles
Using a concealer to cover up the dark circles will not make your eyes look bigger, but at least, the dark circles will not draw attention to them when someone is looking at your eyes. So, this step is really important. Color correct your blemishes and dark circles with an illuminating concealer. Ensure you use a shade slightly lighter than your foundation to lift and enhance your look.
Expert’s Tip: We recommend the light and creamy concealer, which is also a great cover-up for spots.
Tightline The Upper Water Line
This is the step that makes a lot of difference. Use a black liner to tightline the upper water line. This gives the appearance of fuller lashes and helps to open up the eyes. Most of the women of this generation like to use the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.
Expert Tip: The formula is amazing and it gives your eyelashes volume without doing much!
Lay Low With The Eyeliner
When using liner on the lower lashline, make sure to only apply it to the outer third. Use a smudger or a brush to soften it out. As for the eyelid, draw a line as close as you can to the lashes.
Expert Tip: You can create a tiny flick and gradually make it thicker at the end if you want to.
Contour The Crease
Contouring the crease helps in creating the illusion of deeper set eyes, which in turn, make them appear larger. Use a matte brown shade from the outer corner to the crease and blend well.
Expert Tip: When you’re going for an intense makeup look, you can contour slightly above your actual crease.
Shimmer In The Inner Corner
Use a highlighter or a shimmery light eyeshadow in the inner corner. This adds a little something extra to your makeup look and also helps you look awake. You can choose two ways of applying this.
Expert Tip: You can blend it out and give it a very sheen look. This makes you look fresh in a very natural way.
