How to: Bigger Eyes with Just an Eyeliner


Lesser and lesser people are wearing makeup nowadays.  “Why bother?” They would say as half of our faces are covered with face masks - thank you OMICRON for coming into our lives this 2022!  #Nothanks

But that does not stop me from using brow products and eyeliner.  Eyeliner was the first makeup tool I used in college (after lipsticks)  and I remembered looking like a fool as I applied it so darkly shaping my whole upper and lower lashline.  

If you studied makeup artistry, you would know that is a huge NO - NO!

To my dear friends who have the same small eyes as I do.  Here’s a trick on how to enlarge your eyes without the need for eyeshadow.  I just used a waterproof pencil liner in dark brown.  Yes, the color makes a huge difference, go for Dark Brown or Dark Gray instead of black!  Black could appear too harsh on a bare eye makeup look!  

I’ll stop blabbling, here’s the half face look.

Can you see the difference on my eye shape and size?

More importantly, it appears like I have eyeshadow on because you need to blur out harsh lines from the eyeliner making it appear smoked out.  So the quality of the eyeliner is very important.  I used SilkyGirl Perfect Stay 20 Hour Dark Brown Eyeliner Pencil for this particular look.

And for you to better understand the trick on how to do it, videos are better right?  Here’s a quick IG Reel I did!  I hope you learn something from me and practice is all you need.
