Bigger eyes generally seem to make you look younger and more alert. All eye shapes are beautiful, don’t get me wrong! We don’t all have big eyes. However, we can always create an illusion using clever makeup techniques. Just a few simple adjustments to your makeup routine are all you need to make your eyes look bigger.
Ways to make your eyes look bigger
Brighten Your Waterline
Lining your lower waterline with a pale eyeliner is one of the easiest tricks in the beauty bible. You can use a white pencil liner for a dramatic difference, but we prefer a beige liner that looks more natural and does the same thing. Top Tip: Eyeliner doesn’t last long at the lower waterline, likely because it blinks about 1500 times a day. Please take off the eyeliner and reapply it every time you go to the bathroom.
Eliminate morning puffiness
You can do this by keeping your eyes in the water, from dipping your face in ice cubes and pickles to applying cool eye drops around the eye area.
Use bright eyeshadow.
Speaking of eyeshadow, the shadows you wear can significantly impact the brightness and openness of your eyes. When you use light to medium hues, your eyes look more open. You can use pastel colors, light shades with glitter, and soft brown eyeshadows to create the illusion of bigger eyes. The full-time eyeshadow palette offers a pleasant combination of neutral and golden tones for a delicate look of plump eyes.
Also, contour your eyes.
Just as highlighting is essential, the eye contour is critical for simulating a more prominent appearance. Wear a darker shade of brown to define your eyes. Something above the crease of the eyes creates the illusion that your eyes are more pronounced. Drag the shadow up and out for a smoky brown eye that will expand the look of your eyes. Take the same dark brown eyeshadow and apply it along the lower lash line from the outer corner to the center of the eye.
Try making your eyes bigger with cat lining.
A cat eye helps lengthen and lengthen any eye shape. Line your liquid eyeliner (hold the eyeliner as close to your lashes as possible) because a cat eye can look very heavy and dark.
Apply mascara to the Lower Lash Line
The mascara helps open the eyes, creating a broad look of plump eyes. While trying to apply a thick layer to the upper lashes, we often forget to add a dash of mascara to the lower lashes. Highlighting the lower lashes goes a long way in making the eyes look bigger.
A little touch of false eyelashes can make your eyes bigger and luscious. Instead of an entire row that can make the eyes a bit boxy and too defined, stick with the outer corner. The upper corner of the eye draws the gaze outwards and upwards and is the perfect finish to any look.
