Tips on making your eyes look more beautiful

Big eyes always look beautiful. The only problem is that not all of us have naturally big eyes. If you have ever wished for magical eyes, then you are not alone.

With some simple tips, you can make your eyes look beautiful.  So here you go with a guide to having beautiful eyes:

Get rid of the eye bags

Eye bags can hide the beauty of your eyes. So, if you are tired of the morning puffiness, here is a tip for you. Place cucumber on your eyes and leave it for 10 minutes. Have dark circles? You can simply colour correct them by using an illuminating concealer. Its shade should be lighter than that of your foundation. Create a ‘V’ shape down your cheek to brighten up your face.

Curl your eyelashes

Giving your eye lashes a lift is going help make your eyes look beautiful, of course.  For that, you must invest in an eyelash curler that instantly lifts the lashes and widens your eyes.

Brighten the waterline

To make your eyes look wider, you must use a neutral shade inside your lower eyelids too. Don’t pick white, choose a creamy flesh tone.

Contour your crease

Just like you contour your cheeks for giving them a definition, you must contour your eyelids too. Use a slightly darker eyeshadow than your natural skin tone along the crease of your eyelids.

Shimmer the inner corner

Use a shimmer light eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eyes.  This will make you look awake.  You can create a sheen look by blending the highlighter out. If you want to make your eyes sparkle, then do not blend the shimmer out.

Play with the eyeshadow

Another way of making your eyes look brighter is to play with the eyeshadow to see what color brightens your eyes.  Beauty experts recommend using light eyeshadows. Here is a rule of eye shadowing. Use light colors in the areas that you want the light to reflect and apply dark shades on the areas that you wish to push back. When you use light colors at the center of your eyelids, it brings them forward. So start applying the product from the center of your eyelids.  You can choose either shimmer or matte eyeshadow.

Use a luscious mascara

With a great mascara, you can make a huge difference in the beauty of your eyes. If you have thin lashes, it does not matter, just apply 3 to 4 coats to make your lashes look thicker.

Here are some additional tips on making your eyes look bigger:

  • Do not use dark colors such as gray or black. They don’t really make your eyes big. However, it is ok to use soft brown for adding a crease.
  • If you have small eyes already, do not apply a thick eyeliner.
  • When applying eye makeup, if your eyes get irritated, use some eye drops. Redness in the eyes can make them look smaller.

If you haven’t been gifted with big and beautiful eyes, these tricks will help you big time.
