Something doesn’t add up about huge eyes that give them that exemplary fantasy look. Your big eyes are striking, and they can give your beauty an air of youth. You don’t realize how big the eyes are. Don’t, even if you don’t have them. Do not alter your eyes’ natural shape. Makeup techniques for the right eye can give the impression of a larger eye. Here are ten easy ways to use eye makeup to make your eyes look bigger.
- Use colored or brown eyeliner:
Black may be your go-to color for eyeliner, but brown or colored eyeliner can make your eyes appear larger and brighter. Try L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Cobalt Blue, for instance, if you have Baby Blue. Use the same pencil eyeliner as you did for the forest green on your green eyes.
- Make an impact with eyeshadow:
Shadows can be used to highlight specific areas of your eyes to make them appear larger, just like lighting your face. Make use of an eyeshadow that is either light ivory or white, like L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Monos Eyeshadow by Paris Beach. Make your eyes appear wide and alert by applying eyeshadow to the inner corners, under the brows, and center of the eyelid.
The eye contour is necessary to create the illusion of a larger face, just as highlights are essential. Make your eyes stand out with a dark brown shade like L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Eyeshadow in Bronze Taupe. To make the eye appear larger, apply the shadow just above the crease. For a brown smokey eye that enlarges the eye, drag the shadow up and out. Apply the same dark brown eyeshadow from the outer corner to the inner corner of the eye along the lower lid line.
- Avoid overwriting:
Using dark eyeliner to line your eyes can make them appear smaller. Instead, draw a thin line above or below the lash line with a precision-tipped liquid eyeliner like L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner. Instead of layering liner, use a medium-toned brown eyeshadow to line your upper lashes while still highlighting your lower eyelid. Using a thin, tapered eyeshadow brush, apply a very thin layer of shadow.
- Recognize the 3/4 rule:
Try lining only the outer three-quarters of your lash line if you want to make your eyes appear larger. If you draw just one line on your lashes, it can make your eyes look smaller and as though you’re all around them.
- Remain nonpartisan:
When it comes to using eyeshadow to make your eyes appear larger, lighter, more neutral hues are your best friends. On your lids, try a neutral brown shade like Matte It Up from L’Oreal Paris Color Rich Mono Eyeshadow.
- Make the lining wider:
Applying eyeliner outward from the outer corner of your eye is another method for making your eyes appear larger. This assists in emulating a longer line of sight. Keep in mind that it might take some practice if you decide to try this tip. This is the kind of makeup that you want to apply strongly because even the tiniest difference can make your eyes appear slanted. Make use of an eyeliner pencil like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro last Waterproof, up to 24 Hour Pencil Eyeliner for this technique. It’s easy to make a mistake with liquid eyeliner, especially if you’re trying this for the first time.
- Apply the long mascara with a swab:
Mascara is an essential component of any eye makeup. First, use a lash primer like L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Primer/Primer to give your lashes length, volume, and drama. Finish with your preferred mascara and your eyelash primer. L’Oréal Paris Air Volumizing Mega Mascara and Lightweight Mega Volume Washable are two examples of volumizing and lengthening mascaras that can be used to achieve a woke look. To fully coat the lashes with the long formula, start by placing the brush at the base of the lashes and work your way up to the tips. Apply three coats for a defined lash for more drama.
- Use light shades for the waterline instead:
You may have been told that applying darker eyeliner to your lower waterline is not a good idea because it can make your eyes look smaller. Make your eyes appear larger by applying eyeliner just below them.
- Make the eyes appear larger by using white:
White or nude eyeliner can be used in this area to make your eyes appear larger if you don’t want to use dark eyeliner along your waterline. You can also add width by drawing a white line below the line that you extended past the corners of your eyes.
