how to make your eyes look bigger
De PuffPuffy eyes are just not cute. Try some under eye de-puffing treatments to help your eyes look their best. I absolutely love the Liz Earle Eye Brightening Tonic, it’s cooling and soothing on dry, stressed out skin areas. To be honest - anything you have lying around thats cooling will do. You could even use a cold spoon or cool camomile teabags. Anything that takes the puff out of tired eyes is a winner.
Up your brow gameBrows are my thing. I’ve wrote a ton of posts recently on eyebrows and how to make the most of your eyebrows (here, here & here) Groomed arched eyebrows frame the face and open up your peepers giving the illusion of bigger eyes. Make sure you fill them in so they are neat and tidy with a clean, defined shape. I recommend the Sleek Eyebrow Stylist - a waxy pencil which defines the eye brows without feeling too harsh. Great for giving a natural but sharp finish.
Curl it Girl!Everybody should own a pair of lash curlers. I got throughout phases of using them and then not using them, but taking that extra 20 seconds to curl your lashes makes a world of difference. It really opens up your eye area and makes a huge difference. I love the Shisedo Eyelash Curlers ones - there is something about them that other lash curlers just don’t have.
Mascara, Mascara, MascaraAn obvious one but lengthening mascaras like on the top and bottom lashes creates a doll doe eyed look. Apply the mascara in a up and outwards motion to really make the most of enhancing eye shapes and giving a wider eye look. My pick of lengthening mascaras has to be YSL BabyDoll Mascara, it's perfect for defining every single lash, holding a curl (see previous step) and making eyes look wider.
Tightline / WaterlineTightlines are terrifying - its something I still haven’t quite mastered. To enhance your lashes and frame your eyes, apply a black eyeliner under the top lash line to fake fuller lashes. In contrast to doing the tight line, opt for a lighter colour in the waterline. A flesh toned pencil will open the eyes and brighten them. Steer clear of whites in the waterline as it can look really harsh and unflattering. I really like the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Eyeliner in Nude and Black - Super creamy and last all day on the eyes.
