Creating bigger eyes with your makeup is the most effective one. It can make an incredible impact on your look, especially at night time when you are going out and the light in a club or restaurant is dimmed. It is a powerful effect and gets the attention and focus from people around you.
Alright, let's get started:
Before we begin, let's not forget that we can't ignore any other part of our makeup. Creating big eyes, doesn't mean we are good to go and don't have to worry about lips or our cheeks.
We are starting by creating the base for the makeup and apply the eyeshadow. Use a rhombus brush and light brown colour, as contour and blend it in. It will give you the healthy & realistic style you're looking for.
Highlight the lid to create a retro effect which creates an illusion of a more open eye. Don't forget to highlight the inner corners as well, which will open your eyes instantly and make them appear wider.
Get your eyeliner going and draw the line as close to the upper lashline as you can. Increase the thickness towards the outer corner.
Use a white eyeliner on your lower lash waterline will give you the effect of a larger cornea and immediately makes the eyes look much bigger.
The next part is to make the lines at the outer corners of your eyes appear longer with an up 'n' out technique. Don't go too thick with your eyeliner otherwise it might look too heavy.
Mascara! Don't forget the apply your mascara, which is one of THE most important steps in your makeup. A lengthening formula will be beneficial for your style rather than a thickening one.
You can also use false lashes but be careful, choosing the wrong lash can create the opposite of what you are trying to achieve. We're also recommending using mascara during the day time and the false lashes at night time.
Keep in mind, we want to focus on our eyes, means we need to keep the rest of our makeup soft and smooth. Too many stress points in your makeup can ruin your entire style.
