4 Tricks to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Curl lashes

Step 1: Curl lashes

1. Curl your lashes!

  • Curling your lashes instantly opens your eyes, making them appear larger.  You can also hit your curling iron with hot air from your hair dryer for a few seconds before using, to really get curl that lasts.

 

Mascara

Step 2: Tightline Upper Lash Line and Apply Mascara

2. Tightline and apply mascara

  • Tightline your upper lash line using a black eyeliner.  This step defines your eyes, and makes your lashes appear fuller.
  • Add a few coats of your favorite mascara.  I’ve been loving Covergirl Clump Crusher

 

Nude liner

Step 3: Apply Nude Eyeliner to Lower Waterline

3. Line lower waterline with nude eyeliner

  • For some makeup looks, you line the lower waterline with black pencil.  This can be beautiful when you’re going for a really smokey look!  For smaller eyes (like mine), this doesn’t give me a wide-eye look at all.  Instead, line your waterline with a nude pencil to really open them up and appear larger.  I used a nude Makeup forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner,  I’ve also used NYX Wonder Pencil.

 

Highlight

Step 4: Highlight Brow Bone and Inner Corner of Eye

4. Highlight!

  • Adding highlight to your brow bone and the inner corner of your eye is one last trick to open your eyes and make them appear larger!  These steps together all take about 5 minutes!

For a simple, fast eye makeup routine – I’ll do these easy steps and also prime my lids and add a sweep of bronzer in my crease for definition.

Hope these tips helped!  Let me know in the comments what you think, or if you have any eye makeup tricks you swear by ❤

Describe Your Type of Beautiful:  

Natural beauty!  I don’t like to put on a whole lot of makeup, and when I do put on makeup I like it to look very natural for the most part.  I don’t need to be smoochin’ someone and have my face come off.

Natural Eye Makeup Look

This is my go-to, everyday makeup.  It is quick and easy, and very natural looking.  Definitely no-makeup makeup.

Products used:

nm8

  • Mascara– Maybelline Lash Discovery
  • Black Pencil Eyeliner
  • Eye Shadow Primer– Benefit Stay Don’t Stray
  • Bronzer– Benefit Hoola
  • Highlight– Too Faced Candlelight
  • Eyelash Curler
  • Blending Brush

*Optional*

  • Small Angled Eyeshadow Brush
  • Black Eyeshadow

1. Prime Eyelids-

To act as a wash of color for the lid!  I don’t use any other eyeshadow for this look, only a bit of bronzer in the crease.  Put some on your lid and blend it out with your fingers.  I cover the entire lid, all the way up to my brow.

2. Line Upper Waterline With Black Pencil-

I always do this with any eye look as it makes the upper lashes appear thicker!

3. Tightline Upper Lash Line With Black Eyeshadow (Optional)

Since my eyes are hooded, instead of using liquid liner or lining my lashes on the lid,  I’ll often tightline my upper lash line with black eyeshadow.  To do this, take a bit of shadow on a small angled brush and push the shadow into the lash line, right at the roots.  I do this at the inner lash line and also on top of the lashes, again as close to the roots as possible. nm3

Describe Your Type of Beautiful: 

Loving Beautiful. I really do want the best for everyone, and for everyone to have love in their lives, especially love with honesty and trust. I believe in being there for people whenever they need you (if you can be), and doing everything that you can always, with a good heart and mind behind it. Even if I don’t receive it back from anyone, I know that the one person upstairs matters and that He does. It’s easy to be negative. It takes more work to always be positive, but I would rather love and be positive and see all the good things happen, and see the good in most of everything, then to not.

I want to love, and be loved, and all others to be loved… I truly think that is my beautiful.

My go-to outfit would definitely be a wonderful, cute sundress, or a button up with a pencil skirt!  Other than that, for laying at home or a quick run it would be leggings with a cute tank or hoodie (depending on the time of year ) and a cap!
