There’s no denying that a lot of ladies would love to have bigger, more beautiful eyes. There’s just something so jaw-dropping about women who have bold looking peepers. Like, say Angelina Jolie! Her eyes are absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, not all women were born with those big beautiful eyes. Learn how you can fake them with these 4 simple tweaks that will make your eyes look bigger.
Step 1: Base face
You need to start by creating a base on your face. This is the best way to start working on the rest of your features. Make sure all of your makeup is completely washed off before you begin. Use a primer first, before slathering on some BB or CC cream. Don’t go over the top with foundation, as it can get into the fine lines around your eyes; this won’t give you that fresh-faced look you’re hoping for. You can contour or strobe your cheekbones, forehead, and chin now. Just make sure you leave the eyes free for you to work your magic later on. Pencil in your eyebrows, so that you now have a perfect canvas to work from. The more flawless your face looks, the more your eyes will pop.
Step 2: Get rid of bags
The last thing you want is giant black bags under your eyes. They’ll make you look tired and squinty, even if you’re feeling full of energy. If you’re looking for a permanent solution to this problem, then you could try out blepharoplasty. If you’re in a rush then there are other ways to handle this problem. Used tea bags that have cooled down, can help reduce eye puffiness. You can also use an under eye cream, infused with cucumber. In fact, you can just use cucumber if you really want. Once the puffiness has gone down, you can work on concealing those bags. Use a concealer that’s one or two shades lighter than your skin tone. You can now contour the rest of your under eye area.
Step 3: Lines and shadows
Next up, you’re going to want to grab some eyeliner and eyeshadow. Start off by using white eyeliner on the inner bottom eyelid. This will make your eyes look bigger and fresher. Now, you can opt for a neutral color to sweep over the entire eyelid. This will make other colors stand out more when building up your look. Use a dusky color to work into the crease of your eye. You can pull off a doe-eyed appearance with browns, deep purples, and grays. Play around with different smoky-eyed effects to see which works best for you. Don’t forget to blend! Grab your eyeliner and line your eyes. Not all the way around, however! This can make them look small. You want to start from the outer corner and finish around halfway in. Right where your iris is.
Step 4: Finishing it off
Finally, it’s time to finish the look off. Your lashes will play a big part in how beautiful and bold your eyes look. If you’ve got the knack, you can use false lashes for a truly statement finish. If it’s a daytime look, then a lengthening mascara should do the trick. Make sure you apply two to three coats evenly on top and bottom lashes. Now, all you need to do is add some blush and some lipstick. Your look is complete! Those eyes look absolutely gorgeous, dahling!
