3 Quick Tips to Make Your Eyes Appear Bigger


Image source




I’ve been wearing my glasses a lot more than my contacts lately. One of things I don’t like about wearing glasses is that it makes my eyes appear smaller. Personally, I’m a fan of the wide-eyed look. So I thought I would share these 3 simple tricks I use to make my eyes appear bigger.

1.  I curl my lashes. I cannot tell you how much this helps. After curling my lashes, I use two coats of mascara to help my curled lashes stay curled all day.

2.  I line my waterline with white eyeliner. This helps the white of my eyes appear bigger helping to create the   illusion of bigger eyes.

3.  I line my eyes with eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible. I make sure not to heavily line my eyes. Heavy eyeliner will make your eyes appear smaller.

Do you guys have tips and tricks to create the illusion of bigger eyes? Do share!

I have a thing for thick, bold brows. I think it helps frame the eyes beautifully. Plus, I feel it gives the face a gorgeous classic look.

Mine aren’t the thickest or the boldest, but this is what I do to try to achieve the look!

My favorite holiday makeup look is the red lips. It could be soft, bold, glossy, matte, sheer or dark. I love them all. I love the red lip. I love it because if done simple, it can be so classy and glamorous. It’s also the quickest makeup look to put together. You don’t have to worry about eye or face makeup. If I do decide to do a little eye makeup, it’s always the cat eye. I always use liquid liner because it gives a clean and precise finish.

I love, love, LOVE to use glitter nail polish during the holidays. It’s the only time of the year I will sport glittery nails. My go-to glitter shade is gold. I love to layer it or wear it alone. I think it adds a nice warm touch.

Do you have a favorite holiday makeup look?
