Makeup is so much fun to experiment with. You can highlight your features or cover them up. When you start wearing makeup, you learn which features of your face need to be highlighted or contoured. The first thing to learn is that which mistakes you’re making and how to avoid them. Your eye makeup can tell a lot about your face, and it can make you look awake or dull. To enhance your eye makeup, the first trick is to avoid dark and harsh colors.
Here are some easy tips to make your eyes look bigger:
Blended Eyeliner: If you like wearing eyeliner, make sure it’s properly blended. Leaving you eyeliner un-blended creates a very harsh look and make your eyes appear smaller. Use a soft brown color and blend it very close to your eyelashes, you can extend the liner by blending and this will create an illusion of bigger eyes.
Don’t pencil your waterline: For your lower lash line, take a dark brown or black eye pencil and apply it on the outer half of your eye. Always, apply the pencil below the lower lashes. If you apply it on your waterline, it will make your eyes look smaller.
White/nude pencil: For your water line, apply a nude (Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eye Liner – Nude) or white pencil. A light colored pencil will give an effect of bigger eyes. Take the same pencil and highlight the inner corner of your eye. You can also apply a white shimmery eyeshadow on the inner corner to brighten your eyes.
Curl your lashes: Many women underestimate the power of lash curler or don’t own one. Invest in a good quality eyelash curler like the Shu Umera or Eyelash Curler Kevyn Aucoin Curler. The affordable dupes for these curlers work just fine, like the E.l.f. Eyelash Curler or Sally Hansen Classic, Flirty Eyes Eyelash Curler. To hold your curl longer, heat your lash curler with a hairdryer and curl your lashes.
Fill your brows: Your eyebrows are the frame for your eyes. For thin and sparse brows, use a shade lighter than your natural brow color and follow the shape of your brow. Use a pencil or brow powder for filling. If you have naturally thick brows, you don’t need much to do. Just apply brow gel to keep them in place.
