The eyes are one of the first things we notice about other people, especially when we see someone whose makeup is done to draw attention to all the right places. Did you know there are certain tricks you can do with your eyeliner and eye shadow that can actually make your eyes appear bigger?
Try these makeup tips and tricks to make your eyes pop!
Tip 1: Place Light Shimmer on the Inside Corner
Placing a little dab of a light eye shadow color, preferably with shimmer, in the inner corner of the eye makes eyes appear larger, more open and more alert. This quick addition to your makeup routine can make a big difference for your eyes
Tip 2: Swap Out Black Eyeliner with White or Nude for the Lower Lid
Instead of applying that black eyeliner to your lower lash line, use a white or nude liner. This creates the appearance that the whites of your eyes extend down farther, making the eyes seem bigger.
Tip 3: Don't Connect Black Eyeliner
If you love your black liner and still want to use it on your top and bottom lash lines, don't connect it. Leave a small gap between the two lines to create the illusion of space and make the eyes look bigger.
Tip 4: Apply Two Coats of Mascara with Powder Between
Two is better than one, right? When it comes to mascara, it can really help define and volumize lashes. After you apply the first coat of mascara, dust a little powder over your lashes before applying the second coat. Not only does this help make the look more dramatic, but it also helps avoid clumps.
Tip 5: Finish Your Eye Shadow with a Clean Brush
One of the biggest mistakes even self-proclaimed makeup lovers make is not blending eye shadow enough. The best way to do this is to finish off your look with a few strokes of a clean, dry brush to smooth and blend the lines.
Tip 6: Don't Skip the Brows
Eyebrow grooming - and even using a bit of product to make the eyebrows look more defined - is more popular than ever before. And that's for good reason! Having bold, beautiful brows only helps accentuate the features of the eyes and brings the focus of your face to your eye area.
