You can change the size and shape of your eyes with makeup. You will need cosmetics, desire, and the right makeup technique.

Things you'll need

  • Eyelash tweezers
  • Mascara
  • Eye shadow with mother-of-pearl
  • White eye shadow

Step by step guide

If you have small eyes, dark shades of shadows will not suit you. Dark colors will visually reduce your eyes. You should choose a light pearlescent eye shadow. However, it is worth choosing shades without strong shine. High gloss will spoil the technique and visually reduce your eyes. But light mother-of-pearl will make the look more open. It should be applied to the moving eyelid.

White eye shadow will emphasize the area under the eyebrow and the inner corner of the eye. Then blend a darker shade along the outer contour of the upper eyelid.

To emphasize the eyes, you can use eyeliner. However, you need to be very careful, because a thick line is unacceptable. You need to make the thinnest line possible. Don't take it beyond the outer edge of the eyelid. A better option would be to use a light pencil.

If you need to correct the round shape of the eyes, you need another technique. On the upper eyelid should make a thin eyeliner brown or dark gray. The line should be drawn as close to the roots of the eyelashes as possible. From the middle of the eyelid, the line should be gradually raised to the outer edge of the eyelid. We go a little beyond the edge of the eye. This will allow us to give the eyes an almond shape.

Now let's move on to the eyelashes. Twist your eyelashes with tweezers. It is important to apply a little mascara to the upper and lower eyelashes.

Useful advice

If you don't like the shape or size of your eyes, emphasize the perfect shape of your eyebrows.
