They say that eyes are the window to the soul. If that’s the case, here are some tricks to help you frame them perfectly.
Small Eyes? Skip the dark liner.
If light makes things appear larger, then dark will certainly make them smaller. If you have smaller eyes, skip the dark liner on your lower waterline. Instead, opt for the liner, or even a dark shadow, on just the outer half of the lower lash line. This will draw light into the center of your face, making your eyes look larger and appear more open.
Don’t Skip the Browbone.
To bring any eye look together, take a shadow that has a little sheen to it, nothing overly shimmery, and apply it right under the arch of your brow. This will give the illusion of lifted brows and will finish off any look perfectly.
Inner Corner Glow.
While you have that browbone shade out, place a little on the inner corner (where your eye meets your nose) to add more light and brightness. This creates a focal point, especially if you have smaller eyes.
Don’t Skip the Mascara.
Think of your lashes as the curtains to your eyes. They are often the first thing others notice about you. Find a mascara that works well to provide length and volume to your lashes and apply a generous coat. Then, using a lash comb, gently comb through and separate the lashes. Apply a second coat. Repeat the process until you have the desired effect.
Give Lashes a Thickness Boost.
Normally when you think of ways to boost your lashes, your mind goes right to mascara. However, apply a dark liner or even a dark shadow right at the lash line can give the appearance of naturally thicker lashes. This little trick is great for those days you’re in a hurry but what to make your eyes stand out.
