10 Makeup tips on how to make your eyes look bigger and stand out
Not everyone can be blessed with big, beautiful eyes, even if we all want them, but there are lots of ways that you can make your eyes appear larger and make them stand out more. Here we give you our top ten simple tips on how to make the most of your peepers and how to make your eyes look bigger, brighter and even more beautiful:
1. Use your brows
How to make your eyes look bigger with makeup? Be bold with your brows! Bold brows accentuate your eye area and give your eyes the appearance of being larger, so don’t be afraid to apply gel, powder or both to bring darkness and depth to your eyebrows.
2. Line your lower lids
One of the easiest ways to make your eyes stand out and look bigger is to apply liner to your lower lids (but don’t apply black eyeliner there, as it tends to make your eyes appear smaller), use white or light shimmery effect liner, the shimmer will open up your eyes and make them stand out. Don’t forget to add light shimmery color to the inner corners of your eyes, it will make you look more awake, fresh and will make your eyes look bigger.
3. How to make your eyes look bigger? Curl your lashes
Open up your eyes and make them look bigger by curling your eyelashes; if they are straight or point down, they will only help to make your eyes look like they are partially closed.
4. Fill in the gaps
Once you’ve curled your lashes and applied your mascara, dot liquid eyeliner in between your eyelashes to fill in any gaps, this will help to make the lashes look darker and make the line of your eyes look longer.
5. How to make your eyes look bigger? Clear up your eyes!
We all get tired sometimes and this can show in our eyes, use eye drops to reduce the redness, make the whites of your eyes stand out and bring back that sparkle.
6. Blue is big!
Whatever the colour of your eyes is, blue, green, grey or brown, a touch of cool blue eyeliner will make the whites of your eyes stand out and appear much brighter.
7. How to make your eyes look bigger? Avoid using dark colours
Whatever you do, avoid dark colours on your eyes, as this is almost guaranteed way to make them look smaller. Ditch the dark and head towards the light for larger looking eyes.
8. Accentuating smaller eyes
Make your smaller eyes stand out and look bigger with a little creative drawing. Line your top lash line from the midpoint of your eye to the outer edge and make a flick; and then, also line your lower lash line a quarter of the way in. This little trick will draw attention to the outside part of your eyes and make them stand out and look bigger.
9. How to apply eyeshadow to make your eyes stand out?
Create bigger, brighter, beautiful eyes by using two different shades of eyeshadow of the same colour and add a new dimension to your look. For example, use light brown as a base crease color and accentuate outer corners of your eyes with a dark brown shade.
10. Keep your eyebrows neat
Be sure to pluck or wax your brows to keep them neat and tidy to be sure that your eyes are the centre of attention and not your brows!
