They say that the eyes are the mirror of the soul. For most women they are also the basis of any makeup. Properly painted they can add incredible character and confidence. In our article we tell you how to do eye makeup to optically enlarge them.
Not only the shadow on the eyelid decides how the eye will look like. A very important aspect in this matter is the right shape, size and the way we paint our eyebrows
First of all, they have to be adjusted. Unnecessary hairs around the eyebrow arch disrupt their shape and distract from the rest of the makeup. If you do not feel confident in this aspect, we recommend you visit a beauty salon, where professionals will make sure that you leave with perfectly adjusted eyebrows
Another consideration is how to position the hairs. Brush them upwards using a brush and gel or special soap. This will make your look deeper and your eyes look bigger.
2. Highlight the brow arch
Did you prepare your eyebrows as described above? Great, because we have another tip for you! An illuminated brow arch will deepen the effect you get from the right brow styling. Your eyes will look like they’ve undergone a facelift. Prepare a small brush and a highlighter. Apply a small but visible amount just below the eyebrow. For this trick, it’s important not to put the highlighter too low because this will give you the opposite effect.
3. The art of working with shadows
Of course, eye shadows couldn’t be missing from our tips. No wonder, because they are the basis of eye makeup. So what to pay attention to? The most important thing is that the shadow is thoroughly blended. What does that mean? Simply apply the shadow on your eyelid and then blend it out. Note: always blend the shadow in an upward direction
4. Highlighting the corner
Another important point in the art of eye makeup enhancement is to highlight the inner corner of your eyes. You can do this with a highlighter, a shimmery or matte light shadow, or even glitter. Take a tiny brush, gently spray it with water, dip it in the cosmetic and apply it in the inner corner of the eye. It’s guaranteed to make your eyes pop!
5. The right eyeliner
Eyeliner is a favourite make-up element for many of us. It can be difficult to apply, especially for beginners, but we decide to do it anyway. Why? Because it’s a brilliant way to make the eye look bigger
If you want to do it right, you must remember that there are several types of eyeliner. The best choice will be to make a thin line finished with a swallow. Moreover, you don’t have to start it at the very corner of your eye. You just need to start from the middle of your lash line. If you have a drooping eyelid, make sure that the line does not go into its crease. In this case it is best to draw the line on the open eyelid.
6. Artificial eyelashes
Artificial eyelashes can save any of us. Even if you don’t have great makeup skills and your eye makeup is not sophisticated, it is worth reaching for them. Choose clumps or strip lashes, depending on your personal preference. Your look will take on character, your makeup will be more defined, and most importantly, your eyes will seem decidedly larger.
