Make Your Eyes Look Bigger


Eyes come in all shapes and sizes. No matter how big or small, your eyes are uniquely beautiful. Emphasizing them with makeup makes them even more beautiful. But some people struggle with eyes that they feel are either too big or too small. Others simply enjoy creating a variety of looks with makeup. For those who want to make eyes look larger, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind.

Eye Shadow
Applying eye shadow properly adds dimension to the eye area and helps to make them look larger. To apply shadow correctly, you need to know how to apply color for your eye shape. For more information on applying eye shadow for your individual eye shape, see the link below to ďHow to Apply Eye Shadow.Ē This article outlines how to apply shadow to emphasize any eye shape.

Eyeliner
Eyeliner can make eyes look bigger or smaller. It depends on the colors used and how they are applied. Women sometimes use black liner on the water line and line the rest of their eyes in black. This is a look that many women love, especially when going out. Itís a beautiful look, but it can make eyes look smaller.

If youíre trying to make eyes look larger, donít encircle them with a stark, dark line. Use liner only where needed to emphasize the eyes, depending on your eye shape. Use a white eyeliner pencil on the water line to make eyes look larger.

Curling Lashes
Be sure to curl your lashes before applying mascara. Doing so opens up the eyes and helps to make them look larger. Eyelash curlers are available at most stores that carry cosmetics. They come in a range of prices. Some choose to heat the lash curler with a hair dryer before curling lashes for staying power.

Mascara
After curling lashes, apply mascara. It enhances lashes by making them look longer and thicker. Use brown or black, depending on your natural coloring and preference.

Apply mascara from the root of lashes to the tips. Using a back-and-forth motion during application can help evenly coat lashes and improve the effect of the mascara. Avoid applying too much, which can close off the eye area and make eyes look smaller.

False Lashes
False lashes can amp up the eye area like no mascara can. They come in many lengths and styles so youíre sure to find lashes that appeal to you. Apply them after mascara.

Thatís all there is to it! Making eyes look larger is easy with the right products and application. As with any cosmetics, you should experiment to find out what works best for you.
