Ways to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

1. Brighten your waterline

Lining your lower waterline with nude eyeliner is one of the easiest tricks in the beauty world. You can use a white pencil liner for a dramatic difference, but we prefer a big liner, which looks more natural and has the same effect.

2. Highlight like a pro

Highlighter doesn’t just give life to your cheek bones; it’s one of the best tricks for opening up your eyes too. Use it on your brow bone (which will lift your brow), on the inner corners of your eyes to open them up, and on the very center of the lid to make your eyes pop.

3. Use concealer strategically

Use concealer on the inner corner and outer corners, which are areas that tend to look darker. By adding light to these areas, you bring the eyes forward and emphasize their size.

4. Lift your lashes

We all know mascara makes a massive difference to our eyes, so imagine how bomb the right pair of false lashes can look. With false lashes, it’s crucial that you find the right style to flatter your eye shape: Depending on whether you have almond, round, hooded or deep-set eyes, each needs a different lash, otherwise, you run the risk of making your eyes look smaller.

5. Don’t forget your lower lash line

Adding mascara to your lower lashes will also open up the eyes for a wide, doe-eyed look: For a softer look, you can use brown mascara or even colored mascara if you like. Adding a little eyeliner to the outer corner of your lower lash line will also help to elongate your eyes.

6. Frame your face

A well-groomed pair of brows is so essential for creating balance and harmony of the face, but also for accentuating your eyes.

7. Conceal dark circles

Bright eyes not only make your eyes look more awake, but they also open up your eyes. Choose a shade of concealer a shade or two lighter, or if you have dark circles, use a peach-toned concealer, which will cancel out purple undertones. Baking under your eyes will also add brightness and help to keep your eyeliner from smudging throughout the day.
