One of your most important features is your eyes!
If you’ve ever seen photos of celebrities without makeup, you know what a difference eye liner, mascara and eye shadows can make.
Want to make your eyes look bigger and brighter? Try these expert tips to make your pretty eyes really pop.
Even out skin tone -
Dark circles can make your eyes appear smaller. The right concealer can work double—even triple—duty on darkness and discoloration. It can also illuminate the entire eye area and draw attention to darker lashes. Choose a shade that’s slightly lighter and warmer than your skin to brighten and correct any blue or purple tones.
Curl your lashes -
Every woman owns an eyelash curler. Most of us forget to use it! You’ll regret never spending that extra 20 seconds to curl your lashes. It can immediately make your eyes appear wider and more open.
Apply mascara -
Did we mention mascara? Apply a lengthening formula, like Tom Ford Extreme Mascara, along the upper and lower lashes to create wide, doe eyes, and then brush a thickening coat over the top for even flirtier, more battable lashes.
To enhance your lashes (notice a trend here?) and frame your eyes, apply a super skinny strip of black liquid liner along the base of your upper lashes. Felt-tipped options, like Marc Jacobs Beauty Magic Marc’er Precision Pen, deposit rich, inky color while providing control and precision.
Add white eyeliner in the inner and outer corners of the eyes. That really helps to make the eye look bigger and brighter.
Define your crease -
Putting a medium brown eye shadow in the crease is always good. To avoid looking like a 90210 star, use a fluffy brush to sweep a matte formula in an arc from the outer corners all the way to the centers of the eyes.
There’s a reason that even in #nofilter selfies, models seem incapable of taking a bad picture. They know how to find the light or at least fake it. A pearly eye shadow or highlighter dabbed on the centers of the lids, underneath the brow bones, and on the inner corners makes eyes look lifted and awake.
Mind your brows –
Groomed arched eyebrows create a flattering frame for the eyes. And anything that accentuates the eyes is going to make them appear larger.
