Every woman desires bigger and brighter looking eyes. You will not be able to achieve this look just by applying some eye shadow over the lid. However, regardless of the shape of the eye there are few genius tricks that can make your eyes look bigger!
Tips to Accentuate Your Eyes and Make it Look Bigger
Perfectly Shaped Brow
It is essential to keep your eyebrows well groomed. Trim them and brush them upwards. Make sure that you pluck or wax anything underneath the brow, so that they are well-shaped. Another important point is to ensure that the arch of the brow is directly above the pupil.
This way your eyes will look bigger, as it will have more height. Color your brows with pencil or a brow shadow. You can dust a glittery highlighter on your eye brow bone, which has to be something light, as it will really help to open up the eyes.
Max Out Your Eye Lashes with Mascara
You can use mascara to create fuller and longer lashes. Choose mascara that contains keratin and collagen, as it will fatten up each fringe of the lash. Also, select a brush that is wide, dense and long, which helps in coating your eye lashes with fewer swipes and reduces the clumps. Always, apply a coat of mascara and then after it dries add another coat. You can also apply a third coat on the outer eye lashes, which would accentuate the shape of the eyes.
Many makeup artists avoid using mascara on the lower eyelashes, as they believe it would in fact close up your eyes. Although, this is true for a few women, eyeliner and mascara on the lower eyelashes can actually make a remarkable difference for others. So, you can try it out yourself and then decide on it.
Women who don’t have naturally perfect and long eyelashes must curl them before applying the mascara, which will open up the eyes. The lashes can also be curled after mascara application. However, make sure that the mascara is dried.
Eye Shadow to Enhance your Eye Shape
Many people have a false impression of bigger eyes and for most of them it means piling on lots of heavy and dark shadows. However, this is not true. Experts recommend shimmery pale shadows like soft bronze or gold to be applied on the upper eyelids. The eyes look brighter, when more light is reflected from the eye area.
You can create an illusion of depth by applying grey or dark, matte brown eye shadow over the crease. This would open up the eyes and in a more credible way, as the entire area is not dark and you are just playing with the dimensions. You should never apply the same color eye shadow as that of your eye because the entire thing merges together and finally nothing looks prominent.
Eyeliner to Widen Your Eyes
You need not skip the sultry eyeliner to open up the eyes. The trick lies in its application. Many women make the blunder of applying the eyeliner as one thick line on the entire eye. Instead, work outwards starting from 3-quarters of the way and giving it a wing tip will further help in opening up the eye. Avoid using something dark on the inner corners, which will make the eye look smaller.
