How To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Heey Guys!!

First off , I want to say sorry for not posting in a while, i had really hard law exams which i had to study for, so there was no computer near me!

So i'm back , for another while anyway :)

Today I want to talk about  How to make your eyes look bigger !!
They're are 7 steps in my opinion.

  • The first rule of thumb is to apply the lighter shadow on the inner corner of your eyes (even the tear duct). For those of you who are not quite sure where that is, this image will clear things up.

Inner corner = yellow dotted area

  • Secondly, it's a good idea to apply the darker shade to the "outer V". This will elongate the eye almost immediately. Once again i'll enclose a picture for clarification.

Red line = outer V

  • Thirdly, which is optional, but i choose to do it, is to add a matte shade to the "crease " of your eye and blend like crazy. This will add depth to the eye, thus, giving it that "pop".
crease=dark shadow above lid

  • If you want to apply black eyeliner apply it to the upper lash line. If you apply it to the lower lash line it will instantly make your eyes appear narrow and small looking. Furthermore, it's been recommended, to add white eyeliner to the lower lash line. 

  • A winged cat eye also makes the eye look bigger. This is where you extend the liner past the outer corners of your eye.

  • It is important to have shaped eyebrows. It would be a waste of time to have put in so much effort and left an ungroomed eyebrow. A tidied  eyebrow will look more noticeable straight away.

  • (Optional)- Apply false lashes to the eye, sometimes even the lower lash line. Others recommend not wearing mascara on the lower lashes and say that it has a great effect, but i can't do that personally, as i feel like i have a naked eye.

Finally, this is an image that encapsulates all of the above steps in one look.

Hope this was helpful and that you enjoyed it. If you have anything else to add , please do

Talk soon !! :D
