Drain the morning puffiness invading your peepers with a cool shot – submerge your face in ice cubes and cucumber, or dab cold eye drops around the eye area (a MAC makeup artist tip).
Brighten dark circles
Shadows under your eyes will set your eyes back. Mask dark circles with an illuminating concealer a shade slightly lighter than your foundation to lift and brighten your eyes. Remember to take it down your cheek in a ‘V’ shape, in order to brighten up the whole face.
Brighten the waterline
As black liner inside the lower eyelids will close your eyes, a brightening neutral shade will open them. Try a creamy flesh-coloured tone which will conceal redness perfectly.
Contour the crease
As you may shade your cheeks to give them definition, try contouring your eyelids to give them secret shape. Sweep an eyeshadow shade slightly darker than your natural skin tone along the crease of your eyelid.
Highlight the inner corners
Apply a touch of iridescent shadow or highlighter to the inner corner of your eyelids (near the tear ducts) and below the arches of your brows. This will instantly open your eyes making them appear wider.
Frame your eyes
Never underestimate the importance of maintaining a strong brow shape – they’re the frame of your face! Have them professionally shaped and brush them up to open your eyes.
Apply lengthening mascara
Mascara is THE magic wand for making eyes look bigger and if you use only one product make it this, but try a lengthening formula over a volumizing one. Add a bit of WOW! – try sticking 3 – 4 individual lashes to the outer corners of the eye to create a cat eye shape.
Alternatively, a full false lash creates a bold lash that gives the appearance of drastically longer lashes. Apply the eyelash glue directly to the false lash then press onto the lash line.
Draw fine lines
Draw your liner as close to the upper lash line as possible and don’t enclose your eyes by lining them all the way around – especially at the bottom. Increase the thickness gradually toward the outer corners.
Wing liner up and out
Extend your lines at the outer corners of your eyes with an up and out technique. Try not to go too thick with your eyeliner, as this can often look a little heavy on smaller lids.
