If you have really smaller eyes, it can be really hard to find makeup tips for small eyes, right? I don’t have the largest eyes in the world and I’m constantly looking for makeup techniques for small eyes that’ll really help my eyes stand out beautifully! So girls, are you ready to see my top tips for small eyes that will make your eyes appear large and help them stand out? Let’s do this!
Here are some tips to make small eyes look bigger:
#1.Start with groomed eyebrows:
There is nothing more unflattering than unkempt eyebrows on a woman’s forehead. Take a trip to the salon at frequent intervals, and keep the brows in good shape. Follow the natural shape of your eyes to guide you.
#2.Conceal under-eye dark circles:
Using a concealer to cover up the dark circles is preferred. It will not make your eyes bigger, but atleast the dark circles will not draw attention to them when some-one is looking at your eyes. So, this step is really important.
#3.Pale eye shadow on lids:
Did you know that pale eyeshadow can actually enhance the size and shape of your eyes? This tip for small eyes is all about putting pale eye shadow along your lid. It can really be any color that you want, but make sure that it is pale. For me, I use a pale pink or purple and draw out the green in my eyes. Use the color that works best for your eye color!
#4.Use light color to brighten eyes:
In turn, you can actually use light colors to brighten up your eyes and make you appear more awake! This makeup tip works especially well for me in the morning, when I am really tired. It makes my eyes appear super awake and alert without me having to try too hard!
#5.Do not over-do the eyeliner:
When lining the eyes, do not make a full circle around the eye with the black eyeliner. Avoid applying kajal on the inner rim of the lower lash-line; instead keep it outside the lash line. Also, do not extend this line up to the tear duct. Start lining from outer corner, and stop after 2/3rd of the lash is covered.
#6.Nude pencil above kajal:
Remember Rekha’s pictures from all award functions? She usually wears a white eye pencil on the inner rim of the lower lash line. Now, white eye pencil may not look too flattering on Indian skin-tone, so you may use a nude eye pencil to line the lash line. Nude pencil will also look more natural than white, and can be worn during day time too. Try Bourjois Khol and Contour Eyeliner Pencil- 08 Rose Fantaisiste, or MAC Chromagraphic Pencil.
#7.Line lower lash line:
You also want to make sure that you are lining your lower lash line too. Not just your waterline, but also your lash line. Truthfully, this one took a while for me to master, but once I got it down, it totally worked and it looks beautiful every single time!
#8.Reduce puffiness in the eyes:
Swollen skin around the eyes make them look very small. Here is how you can recue any puffiness in the eyes.
- Sleep enough
- Wash your face with cold water often
- Place used, cold teabags over the eyes as the tannins present in tea tighten the skin improving the condition
- Lessen the amount of salt intake in your diet
- Practice exercise which in turn reduces puffiness around the eyes
I hope these ways to make small eyes look bigger were helpful!
