Your eyes are too small and you dream of big eyes? No need to worry about simple make-up techniques to enlarge the look. Stars like Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian use and abuse it, so why not us! 10 secrets for day and evening make-up to enlarge the eyes and make the look bright and glamorous as you wish.
Secret 1: Perfectly designed eyebrows to open and rejuvenate the eyes
Eyebrows, too thick, bushy, too thin are to be banished for the little eyes. It is necessary to “open” the eyes with a well drawn eyebrow line which, in addition to giving the illusion of a younger look, will give the illusion of larger eyes. For perfect eyebrows, consult the Che Beauté: Success every time you wax and make-up your eyebrows (in drawings)
Secret 2: Correct dark circles and unify the eyelid to “open” the eyes
Apply your concealer by lightly tapping on the coloured area of the dark circles (see How to apply your concealer). Nailing dark circles is essential (especially when they are dark), because they darken the eyes and make them smaller. Apply an eye shadow base from the moving eyelid to the eyebrows.This base not only allows the eye shadow to be xed for the whole day without it getting into the small folds of the eyelid, but also illuminates the eyelid and thus opens the eyes.Tip: If you don’t have an eye shadow base, apply your concealer instead. But if your eye shadow has a tendency to drool, invest in a base with an eye shadow base, you won’t regret it!it! They are available at very affordable prices (for example, the brands: Kiko, Essence, elf)
Secret 3: How to apply and choose eye shadow to enlarge and stretch your eyes
Always choose pearly or iridescent eye shadows that are the allies of the little eyes.(1) Apply a light pearly or iridescent eye shadow (beige, pinkish beige, sand, golden beige) to the moving eyelid to illuminate and open the eyes.(2) Apply a much darker shade (brown, purple, copper) from half of the eye, starting from the hollow of the eyelid and stretching outwards. Add a tip of the same eye shadow to the outer corner of the moving eyelid(3), always stretching outwards. If you have no or few dark circles or if you have camouflaged them well, apply a light eye shadow under the first half of the eye(4) and dark under the second half(5), your eyes will look even bigger (technique used by Jessica Alba).Use a uy brush on and under the eyelids to “melt” the eyeshadows.
Secret 4: Draw a line of eyeliner or dark kohl pencil
On the eyelid, draw a line of kohl pencil or eyeliner of a dark color (black, dark grey, navy blue, dark purple, etc.) flush with the eyelashes. The line is very n at the beginning of the lash line and then thickens gradually. To enlarge the eye and give it a nice almond shape, draw what are called “wings”.Consult the Beauty cheek: How to draw your eyeliner line. A little advice: For all those who have trouble with the eyeliner line (and there are many!), opt instead for a kohl pencil line that you can blur by gently tapping with a cotton swab. The line drawn with the eyeliner requires a certain dexterity and more practice
Secret 5: Draw a white or beige pencil line inside the eye
To enlarge eyes that are too small, a trick is to draw a white or flesh-coloured pencil line for light skin tones and beige for dull skin tones inside the eye.
Step 6: Draw a dark kohl pencil line along the lower lashes
On the underside of the eye, draw a line of dark kohl pencil (black, dark grey, navy blue, dark purple, etc.) following the lower lash line, but only on the outer half of the eye so as not to “close” the eye. The line is n then thickens by stretching outwards. To “outer” the kohl pencil line, tap it gently with a cotton swab.
