Tips to make your eyes appear larger:

– First and foremost you’ll want to provide a nice frame to your eye – make sure your eyebrows are nicely groomed and filled in. If you have thin or unruly eyebrows, I suggest adding a bit more shape and definition to them. Below I used my Benefit brow pencil to define and comb my eyebrows.

– Another trick is the shadow you choose – you could go with shimmery or matte shades (I used mostly shimmery), but make sure the colors aren’t too dark. I find my eyes look largest when I used softer shades along with a slightly dark more defining shade in the crease. See my tutorial for eye shadow blending if you want more details.

– Your eyes also need to be framed with liner. I find a cat eye/winged look creates the best effect. You want to make sure your liner on the top of your lashes is a slightly thicker, bolder line. I would also tight line your upper waterline with a black pencil to create additional definition and a seamless effect.

– You’ll want to make sure and place a light, shimmery shadow in the inner corners of your eye to draw attention and make your eyes appear brighter. This will also make your eye color pop.

– Lining the bottom waterline with a white/nude liner over black (mine is from Rimmel Scandaleyes) is also a great trick for making your eyes look bigger.

– Lastly, if you want big eyes – you’ll need lots of mascara! I used 2 for this look – I used the super voluminous Too Faced Better than Sex on my upper lashes (about 3 coats) and Julep’s Volumizing Mascara on my lower lashes. I find mascara with big brushes like the Too Faced one don’t work well on my finer lower lashes.
