Large eyes add to the beauty of a face — but what of those who have been gifted by nature with small eyes? Makeup artist Aashmeen Munjaal and Aakriti Kochar, Beauty and Makeup Expert at Oriflame India, share some steps to redefine small eyes without any hassle.
Eyeliner on Top. Well, first and foremost, put eyeliner on the top lid. Make sure the eyeliner is thin and crisp and use a well defined eye liner brush to ensure it.
Groomed Eyebrows. It is all about groomed eyebrows. Keep your eyebrows up and groom it beautifully to make sure that your eyes stand out and look larger.
Play it Pale. Pale eye shadow can actually enhance the size and shape of your eyes. This tip for small eyes is all about putting pale eye shadow along your lid. It can really be any colour that you want, but make sure that it is pale.
Light Colours. Use light colours to brighten the eyes. This makeup tip makes your eyes appear super awake and alert without you having to try too hard.
Eye Shadow. If you are looking for a way to make your eyes really stand out, just swipe a bit of a dark coloured eye shadow along the outer corners of your eyes. That will really make them pop and you can even draw out the colour of your eyes.
Smudge it up. Another great tip for small eyes is to smudge your liner a little bit. This can be done on the upper and lower lids. Now, don’t make it look too smudgy, but just enough.
The Highlighter Trick. Use a highlighter in pearl white (soft sheen) on the arch of your eye brows and on the inner corner of the eyes (tear drop area) using a small brush. This brightens up the eyes and make them appear stronger and bigger.
Use the Curler. Curl your lashes using an eye lash curler, this will open up the eyes even more making them look bigger. Add lots of mascara, a thin top coat for volume and several coats from the bottom to add length which in return create the illusion of big eyes. Do not forget to mascara the lower lashline as well as this will add to the shape of the eyes even more.
Highlight those Cheekbones. Using liquid highlighter along your cheekbones is a great way to highlight your eyes and your cheekbones.
