You see something different in my photo below?
Well, my right eye (left eye facing you) looks more defined...and bigger!
I'm tired of seeing "How to Achieve Bigger eyes" but when you click on the tutorial, you see heavily done eye makeup --- from dark smokey eyes, dramatic lashes and very thick eyeliner! That's why the queen of "I want to look natural" is finally creating a Photo-torial for fellow natural beauty lovers out there...in less than 5 EASY steps!
Use a basic medium brown eyeshadow. In this tutorial, I used one from Make Up For Ever.
Apply this with a blending brush to create a "shadow" or fake deep set eyes.
Pick any eyeliner of choice. Best if the liner is creamy and easy to "smudge". I am actually loving L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Lasting Silky Crayon in Brown.
1. Making sure to stay very close to the upper lash line, apply a thin layer as shown on photo 1.
2. Apply thickly at the center. This will help create an illusion of a larger eye.
3. With a pencil brush, smudge the liner immediately before it sets.
4. Feather out extending the liner, basis is at the end of your eyebrows.
At this stage, I pulled out a very natural-looking false lashes! Pick ones that are lightweight. BohkToh One is a Thai Brand. This fits my eye perfectly I don't need to trim the lashes!
If you think wearing false lashes is a bit of a hassle, you can skip this step, instead, curl your lashes and apply coats of mascara!
Tip: You don't need dramatic lashes to make eyes appear larger, you only need a pair of lashes that works for your eye shape.
The trick to bigger looking eyes is actually "highlighting" key areas. Using my favorite Benefit High Brow Glow, I highlight the area below the brows and my waterline.
You may choose to use the same Highlight pen from Benefit to do this next step, but my favorite for the inner corner of my eye is from Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay 24H Gel Eyeliner in Butterscotch.
