One of the most common complaints among women when they are applying their eye make up is that their eyes look too small. Here are some simple tips that can help your eyes appear much larger.
Mascara. So many people think that just choosing any old lengthening mascara will automatically make their eyes look bigger. This is not true, all a lengthening mascara will do is make your eyelashes look longer.
Choose a mascara that has a “wide eye” effect, this means that it will lengthen and lift your lashes, whilst fanning them out so that the eyes appears both longer and wider, giving the impression that they are bigger.
Many people say that curling your eyelashes is essential, but the majority of mascaras available nowadays will do it for you, saving you time. Also, very few people can curl their eyelases evenly, one eye always ends up looking bigger than the other. The mascara will curl the lashes much more evenly, quickly and painlessly!
The application is as important as the mascara itself. Pull the wand from the tube and leave it for about one minute, this will give the mascara a chance to dry, this will help eliminate the risk of clumps. This is a tip that is used by make up artists on catwalks.
With the wand at the base of the lashes, gently wiggle the wand from side to side whilst moving it upwards. This ensures that all the lashes are thoroughly coated. Do not forget to apply mascara to your bottom lashes, this subtle definition makes a huge difference. Hold the wand vertically and sweep it from side to side.
Apply a shimmery highlighter on your eyelashes, this reflects the light and makes the eye appear brighter.
If you have pale skin, apply a white eyeliner to the inside of your eye along the upper and lower lash line. This will help to eliminate redness and make the eye appear much more open and awake. If you have darker skin, choose a neutral colour such as light brown or beige.
Be careful when you are applying black eyeliner, if it is not applied properly, it can make the eyes appear much smaller. Start at the outer corner of the eye and bring the line as close to the lashes as possible ( the line should stop in the centre of your pupil)
