Having large, prominent eyes is any girl’s dream, as they help to instantly grab the attention of another person. They also help in developing conversations that are more engaging. Although not everyone is naturally born with big, bright eyes, they can be made to look bigger by applying skillful makeup. In this article, we will provide you with some makeup tips to make your eyes look bigger.
Add length to your eye lashes
Curl your lashes up and then vertically sweep one or two coats of your favorite mascara. In order to get lashes that appear longest, start by taking the mascara wand and then directly applying the product to the ends of your lashes in upward motion. If you are keen on achieving a thick effect, apply the mascara at the base of your lashes by using brisk right to left strokes.
Add more dimension to your eyes by working with two different shades
Use two different shades of eye shadow from same color family to create a dimensional effect on your lids. The lighter shade can be placed on the main higher points, such as the center portion of the lid, or the inner corners. The darker shade can be applied around the outer corners to make your eyes look bigger and brighter.
Increase brightness of your eyes by applying white shadow
Use white shadow effectively to add appeal to your eyes. Instead of smearing white shadow all over your eyelids, just apply some white with a pencil just around the inner corner of the eye. This will instantly make your eyes look brighter.
Caring for your lashes
Take proper care of your eyelashes. Although there are plenty of makeup tips that focus on this part of the eye, the first and most important thing that you should do is curl them regularly. This will allow you to give some volume to them help you to open them wider, as your eyes are not really masked by your lashes. If you want extra volume to your eyes, you can go for false eyelashes, but it is better if you stick to single lash applications by just adding a little more thickness. Avoid experimenting with your lower lashes as they are usually too cluttered and can even make your eyes appear smaller.
Give proper attention to the eyebrows
Make sure that your eyebrows are in proper shape. Although bold brows are quite the in-thing nowadays and many actually go for thick eyebrows, they require a bit more maintenance than their thinner counterparts. The brows should ideally be trimmed and properly manicured. Brows play a major role in complementing your facial structure, so bear that in mind while you are shaping them.
Following the crease
If you are applying an eye liner or an eye shadow, it is important that you extend your application all the way till the crease. This will give a more voluminous look to your eyes.
Complement your eye makeup with a nice shade of lipstick
Combine a nice eye makeup with a bright shaded lipstick, as this will make your face and eyes appear more dashing.
