Bigger eyes

There are different types of eye makeup products and techniques that can help you to create the illusion of bigger eyes. You just need to play around with the techniques to find out which one works best on your face.

Some tips to make your eyes look bigger:

Curl your lashes

For wider looking eye makeup, it is important to curl the eye lashes. This must be done before applying any kind of eye makeup. Use a good quality eyelash curler to curl your eyelashes. For better result, use a heated eyelash curler to curl both the top and bottom eyelashes. Properly curled eye lashes will make the shape of your eyes look bigger. In case you have short eyelashes, then you can always opt for false eyelashes which are very easy to use.

Fix the eye brows

When it comes to applying eye makeup to make your eyes look wider and bigger, then you simply cannot ignore your eye brows. It is very essential to keep your eye brows well groomed and in proper shape so that it look nice and neat and in place. Give a thin and arched shape to your eye brows. This will give more space to your eyelid, thus making your eyes look bigger. You can shape your brows using different techniques such as tweezing, waxing or threading. You can do it yourself and get it done at a salon. Also it is also important to color your eye brows with the help of a brow shadow or pencil.


Now it is time to use some eyeliner. If you wish to make your eyes look bigger never use a thick line of eyeliner all around your eyes. It is better to apply a thin line of eyeliner focusing on the natural shape of the eye. Give more stress on the outer corners of your eyes in order to make them appear bigger in shape. Avoid using a jet black eyeliner shade and instead opt for a soft brown or taupe eye liner. You can also use white eyeliner to highlight the inner rims of your eyes.

Eye Shadow

Next it is time to apply some eye shadow. For creating the illusion of a bigger eye you need to apply a light color eye shadow on the base of your eyelid and a darker color at the crease. Just a small amount of neutral eye shadow in a light shade such as vanilla, taupe and bone colors can do the magic. Apply such a pale eye shadow over the entire lid, all the way from your eyelashes to your eyebrows. This will help to define your eyes. Next apply a dark eye shadow in matte brown or grey shade to the crease. Use your finger to blend the color up towards your eyebrow in order to give some depth. Avoid using the same color eye shadow as your eye.


To give a complete look to your eye makeup, you need to use some mascara. For creating the illusion of bigger and wider looking eyes, you need to apply two coats of black mascara. It is better to use volumizing mascara or curling mascara to create the illusion of longer and fuller eyelashes. First apply a layer of mascara, allow it to dry properly and then only apply the second coat in order to accentuate your eye shape. When applying the mascara on the upper lashes, try to focus on the outer edges of your eyes. You can also apply some mascara on your bottom lashes too by holding the wand vertically. Always use an eyelash comb between each coat to remove the clumps and to give a really natural look to the eyelashes.

With all the above mentioned makeup techniques, you can always make your eyes appear bigger and wider than they really are.
