How To Make Your Small Eyes Look Bigger
say that eyes are the window to the soul. Some women, however,
are just not blessed with big picture windows. Small
eyes can be a problem if you want your eyes to stand out,
there are ways to solve the problem. The proper makeup
techniques can help you make those small peepers pop.
first place you will want to look in order to create
bigger, bolder, and more expressive eyes is to your eyeliner. Eyeliner can be the cure to your small eye blues, but only
if you use the correct techniques. First of all, you will
want to line the entire top lash line and then extend that
line slightly at the corners of your eye. If you like,
you can also line the bottoms of your eyes, but make sure
you concentrate color only on the outside third of the
eye and extend is just slightly past the edge. Don't be
too dramatic, but just a slight line beyond the outside
edge will do the trick. Keep in mind that a soft and smoky
look will open your eyes up more than thin hard lines of
liner will. Use dark and neutral colors with just a little
hint of black for lining, since bright shades are what
will make your eyes look even smaller.
other place to concentrate your eye enlargement efforts
would be on your lashes. Eyelashes are a great eye opener.
Before you ever apply mascara, you will want to curl your
lashes three times: once at the base, another half way
up, and a third time at the tip. This will help to create
a gentle, rounded curl of your eyelash. Then, as you apply
your mascara, take care to fan out your lashes as you go.
Do so by brushing the inner third of your lashes toward
your nose. Pull the middle third straight out. Then, take
the outer third of your lashes and brush them toward your
temples. By exaggerating your eyelashes in this manner,
you will be able to draw attention to your eyes and help
them to stand out. The more they stand out, the bigger
they will appear to be.
look to your eye shadow. Use caution when doing
so, however. Though it is a commonly held belief, dramatic
eye shadow will not make your eyes stand out. The truth
of the matter is, it will do just the opposite. Too much
dramatic eye shadow will cause your eyes to shrink by shading
them back into your face. If you do have small eyes, you
will want to keep eye shadow really simple. Use only light-colored
shadows first of all. Secondly, never wear more than two
shades at one time. Remember, simplicity will be your friend
here. Brush a light, subtle base color form your lashes
to your brow. Next, use a slightly darker shade to create
just a subtle definition in your eyelid's crease. By keeping
your shadow simple and subtle, you can enhance your eyes
and avoid hiding them on your face.
fourth way to enhance your eyes is to work on the area
around them. For instance, dark circles will make your
eyes look even smaller than they are. If you have deep
circles around your eyes, they can even make your eyes
look sunken. To fix the problem, use a concealer that is
just slightly lighter in the dark circle areas. By simply
ridding yourself of the circles, you will be able to enhance
think about the shape of your eyebrows when trying
to enhance your eyes. Your eyes will seem smaller and closer
together if you have brows that are too close together
or heavy. To help spread out your eyes and open them, tweeze
your eyebrows further out than you might normally. If possible,
it is best to get your eyebrows about an eye length apart
if you can.
Large eyes may be a blessing, but small eyes are not a
problem. By simply understanding where to concentrate your
efforts, you make those small eyes pop and look great.
Practice your makeup techniques and taking care of the
skin around your eyes and you will find that opening and
enlarging your eyes is easy and even a little bit fun.
