There is nothing prettier than having large sparkly eyes. If it is good enough for Disney Princesses…! Many of us are not born with such large eyes so we use makeup or different techniques to enhance what we have got. Not all the techniques involve makeup. If you think your eyes fall short from what you would like, I’m sharing a few tips to help your eyes look bigger and better. Thank me later.

A lot of us make the mistake of applying eyeliner all the way around your eye, top and bottom. This goes with your natural shape and if that isn’t large and round, it isn’t going to make your eyes look large and round. Applying eyeliner on the top lid only will open out your eyes. If you want to apply to the bottom of your eye, then only do it a little in the corner of the eye. Only apply to just below the lash too. Don’t apply to the rim either. This will make your eyes look smaller than they are normally!
If you aren’t using a dark eyeliner on the bottom of your eyes, consider using a white liner. This freshens up your eyes and makes you look less tired. I’m being serious, try it! It opens up your eyes too, making them look so much larger. White eyeshadow or eyeliner is also good to apply in the inner corner of your eyes. It will bring more light into your eyes and gives the illusion of larger eyes as the corner of them are ‘blurred’ slightly, if that makes sense?
If you are applying eyeliner to your eyelid, make sure that you make the line go further than the line of your eye. Make it a sweeping, cat-eye shape and it will open up your eyes and make them look larger. Avoid having eyeliner on your eyelid that is too thick.
If you want your eyes to look larger, it is best to avoid too much eyeshadow. That means that the smokey eye look is out. Dark colours on your eyes will make them look smaller. It also draws much more attention to the area. Opt for natural, lighter colors if you want your eyes to look bigger.

To make your eyes look bigger, it is best to avoid wearing false eyelashes. Unless they are quite light, it will make your eyes look heavy. Like the smokey eyeshadow, it draws a lot of attention to that area too and creates a lot of shadows. If you are looking for a way to get longer lashes, without using falsies, there are a few options. A moisturising treatment like LoveLatisse.com helps your lashes to grow naturally.
For eyes that look larger, go for a normal mascara and apply a few layers. Use an eyelash curler and an eyelash brush when fixing your eyelashes. Making sure that your lashes aren’t clumped together will make your eyes look larger and more natural too.
