Making Eyes Look Larger

The first thing that you need to do is prime your eyes for makeup application. Start by applying a drop of primer or concealer on your eyelids and in the area below your eyes. Ideally, the concealer should be two shades lighter than your skin tone. If you want increase the longevity of your eye makeup, then you can add a dab of lip balm to your eyelids before applying an all-over light shade of eye shadow. After the light-colored shadow is in place, you will be ready to apply a darker or bolder shade. If you are adventurous and wish to try wearing a bright color, then this would be the time to apply it. Women who favor a more conservative look will want to use a rich neutral-toned eye shadow. Apply the darker shade from the center of your eyelid to the outer corner. You will want to cover the area from outside of your eyelid to the crease of your eye. The inner part of your eyelid will not need any of the darker color.

After applying your eyeshadow, you will be ready to add some eyeliner to your eyes so that you can make them look larger. For a dramatic look, you can use dark black or boldly-colored eyeliner. Apply the liner to your upper eyelids only for a natural look. For more pronounced eyes, you can apply the liner to both the top and bottom of the eyes.

Once your eyeliner dries completely, you can then add the illusion of length to your eyelashes by using an eyelash curler. Afterward, apply mascara to your eyelashes, then curl your eyelashes again. When you have completed all of these steps, you should have large, beautiful eyes that you cannot help but show off to everyone. This look should last throughout the day, though you may need to touch up your eyeliner when the evening approaches. Be certain to completely wash off your eye makeup at night so that you can repeat the process of making your eyes look bigger the following day.
