Makeup to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

May 08, 2016

I have very large eyes, and I get a lot of compliments on them. They're the first thing most people seem to notice about me, and I'm often told that people wish they had large eyes like mine. Perhaps you can't physically make your eyes bigger, but you don't need to be a professional makeup artist to use a couple of tricks to make them look bigger. I'm coming at you today with a tutorial to easily create the illusion of larger eyes.

I've combined a couple of tricks that I've read make your eyes look bigger. This look really isn't difficult to recreate, either, so you'll be doing your own illusion in no time!

To find out how to recreate this look, keep reading!

1. I started by priming underneath my eyes using my Body Shop 'Matte It' primer.

2. Next, I applied my Seventeen 'Stay Time' concealer in 'Extra Fair' on my under eye area and set this in place using the Rimmel 'Stay Matte' powder in 'Transparent'.

3. To make my brows look less sparse, I filled them in using my Freedom 'Brow Powder Duo' in 'Dark Brown', and combed through them with a spoolie to get the hairs in shape.

4. I applied a light bronze shade on my entire eyelid.

5. I then combined a darker bronze and a touch of black on my brush, before taking a plastic spoon (sounds crazy, but bear with me) and placing it over my eye, with the top edge pressed into the spot just below the crease. I then went above the spoon with my brush, filling the crease with the darker shade and creating a sharp line between the two. This creates a cut crease look, which I've read makes for bigger looking eyes.

6. I added a white shade into the inner corner of my eye for a highlight. This also makes your eyes look wider, making you look more alert.

7. Next, I curled my lashes very thoroughly, before applying my Maybelline 'The Colossal Go Extreme' mascara in 'Very Black'. I wanted them lifted and curved to make the eye look more open, and I got it.

8. On my waterline, I used a white kohl pencil from Barry M. This is a widely known trick for making your peepers look bigger, and it really works. The white pencil 'extends' the whites of your eyes.

9. Finally, I applied my Revlon Lip Butter in the Shade '050 Berry Smoothie' to my lips, and I was good to go!
