Step-by-Step: How to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Few of us are born with huge doe-eyes, but thanks to make-up anything is possible! So, if you’re curious about how to make your gaze more captivating, then check out this 5-step guide!

1. USE A BRIGHT EYESHADOW
Start by using small patting motions to apply a light-coloured eye shadow to your eyelids. This technique will give you a more even application, and the light colour will brighten your eyes.

2. CONTOUR YOUR EYES
Select an eyeshadow tone that is slightly darker than your skin tone, and apply it to the creases (in the fold above your eyeball). This helps to give your eyes definition.

3. BRIGHTEN YOUR WATERLINE
Choose a light eyeliner (white or light pink) and apply it along your waterline. The light colour will make your eyeballs appear larger and mask potential redness. For extra effect, use a black eyeliner along your upper lash line.

4. CURL YOUR LASHES
Long lashes = bigger-looking eyes. So, take out your trusted eyelash curler and make it work for you! Remember to always curl before you apply your mascara or your lashes could break.

5. USE MASCARA
Finish your look by defining your lashes with a black mascara. Wiggling the brush back and forth will give you a fuller finish every time. Two coats will give that dramatic effect!
