What we love the most about makeup is its ability to transform us into something that seems impossible. For example, contouring can chisel your face in a minute, while lacklustre skin can be amped up with a bit of blush. Today, we’ve discovered 7 simple hacks to make your pretty eyes look bigger!
1. Tweeze And Fill
A well-shaped brow can make all the difference. Tweeze away any stray hairs, and then fill in your brows with a pencil. After all, bold brows never fail to draw attention to your eyes!
2. Cover Up
Nothing makes your eyes look smaller, than pesky dark circles. Layer on a creamy, colour-correcting concealer to even out the area. Remember to pat it on with your ring finger, rather than rubbing it in, for a more natural finish.
3. Shadows Everywhere
Ever heard of contouring for your eye? Use a matte brown shadow to define the crease to create depth and shape. An easy way to do this is by following the arc of your eye. Once this step is complete, use lighter, shimmery shades on your lids to open them up.
This expert-approved tip is a classic for a reason! Tightlining involves tracing your upper waterline and filling in the gaps between your lashes, using a dark eyeliner. This trick creates the illusion of thicker lashes instantly. We recommend using a waterproof formula for long lasting results.
5. Go Nude
Speaking of eyeliners, skip the harsh black on your lower lash line. While some pros speak highly of white liners, we found that the hue is too stark against our eyes. Instead, use a flesh-toned pencil to enhance the whites of your eyes.
6. Highlight Like A Pro
The simplest way to look more awake, is to use a highlighter. Dab a tiny amount on the inner corners of your eyes and on your brow bone to lift and illuminate your peepers.
7. Curl On
Stick-straight lashes can cast shadows on your eyes and close them up. Use an eyelash curler to give your lashes a little oomph. For best results, warm up your curler slightly with a blow-dryer before using. Finish up with two coats of mascara.
