Beauty Tip 341: How to make your eyes look bigger

All 4 Women (South Africa) tells us how to make our eyes look bigger.

A few beauty seccrets are shared here and I picked my favourites.

Make your eyes look bigger by making your eyelashes look longer

There are several ways to go about doing this:

-Curl your upper eyelashes with an eyelash curler.
-Apply mascara.
-Apply false eyelashes.

Don’t apply eyeliner all the way around your eyes

Doing so (e.g. the smoky eye look) will make your eyes look smaller. That’s not necessarily a bad thing: small eyes can look mysterious and dramatic, but presumably, that’s not the effect that you want.

When you apply eyeliner on your lower lashes, do it just below the lash line, not inside the rim, and don’t let the line come all the way to the inner corner of your eye. You might also want to line your wetline with white or other light colour. It makes eyes look noticeably bigger, but overdoing it will look stupid!

Extend eyeliner past the outer corners of your eyes

To make your eyes look bigger, the line should move upwards a little as well, mimicking a very long eyelash. This will make your eyes look wider, but it’s a tricky technique. If the eyeliner isn’t applied symmetrically, it can make your eyes look lopsided!

Add white eyeshadow or eyeliner to the inner corner of your eyes

This brings more light into your eyes and gives the effect of them being larger. Make sure it is not a very harsh white. You can also use it on your lower waterline, which extends the white part of your eye.
