A Makeup Trick That Makes Your Eyes Look Bigger

A Makeup Trick That Makes Your Eyes Look Bigger

Do you ever wonder how models get their eyes to look super large and wide awake? Well, this is the trick! It’s very easy and you can use your current eye makeup to do it.

  1. No makeup

  2. Take your favorite eyeliner and line the bottom of your eye. Line as close to your eyelashes as possible, and if any winds up on your waterline just take your finger and wipe it away. I like to use a dark brown eyeliner, I think it looks less severe. My current favorite is the Charlotte Tilbury eye kohl in Audrey.

  3. Find a dark colored eyeshadow and a flat slanted eyeliner brush. It’s key that the brush makes a very thin line. I used the Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 palette (an all time favorite) and this brush.

  4. Take the angled brush and tap it into the eyeliner and then stamp the eyeliner on the outer corner of your eye so it forms a sideways V. Stamp it as close to your eyelashes as possible.

  5. Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend out the shadow. To do this you swipe the brush back and forth along the bottom and the top of your eye where the eyeshadow is. I love the MAC 217 brush since the bristles are very dense and good at blending, but any small blending brush will work.

  6. Apply mascara to both your top and bottom eyelashes. Make sure none smudges below your eye, but if it does simply clean it up with a Q-tip.

  7. Here the eye on the right has makeup. Isn’t it amazing what a difference it makes?!

  8. Finished product.

Tell me, how do you normally apply eyeshadow? Do you have any favorite new techniques? I love learning new ways to use the makeup I already have, don’t you?
