Step by Step Tutorial for Making Eyes Look Bigger
Hey all!!! Today’s tutorial is not based on any look, rather a technique which makes your eyes look bigger. There are several ways to open up your eyes. This technique is a combination of some old tips and new tricks. Some of us are already blessed with big eyes; but for people like me who are born with small eyes, this technique will help to make them appear bigger.
Not just for the technique, you can try this tutorial for an everyday eye look as well. The colors are very wearable and will suit all eye colors. Hope you guys like this attempt. 🙂
Lets start with the tutorial.
Products used for the eye look:
- Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original.
- Jordana 12 Hr Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Continuous Almond.
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Beautiful Eyes Palette.
- Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Reef Sand.
- Bourjois Khol & Contour in Ultra Black.

- Sonia Kashuk Crease, Blending and Liner Brushes.
- Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush.
- ELF Eye shadow Brush.
Prep before the eye makeup:
Before starting with the eye makeup, make sure you have clean and moisturized eyes and face. This will ensure that the makeup looks flawless and natural.
Eye Look to Open Up Your Small Eyes:
Step 1: Start with filling and defining your eyebrows. Apply and blend a concealer or a primer on the lids.
Step 2: Apply a cream base in either white or cream shade. Blend it well. I have used Jordana 12 Hr Made To Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Continuous Almond.
Step 3: Apply a light brown shade in the upper crease area with a fluffy blending brush. Instead of taking it down towards the inner corner, take it towards the brow and try to form a slanted straight line. This will open up the inner corner of the eyes.
Step 4: Apply a dark brown shade in the crease area and blend with the light brown applied in the upper crease area. Take the dark brown out towards your temples, instead of rounding off on the outer corners. Be soft while applying towards the brow, as the strong shade needs to be on the outer corner of the upper crease.
Step 5: Apply any light shade on the eyelid. I have used a shimmery peach shade to contrast the dark brown on the upper crease. Take this shade more towards the inner corner and slightly up towards the brow. This will make a major difference in opening up the eyes.
Step 6: Apply a shimmery pale eye shadow on the inner corners. I have used Coastal Scents Hot Pot in Reef Sand.
Step 7: Apply a matte highlight on the brow bone and blend with the shade in the upper crease area.
Step 8: Tight line the upper lash line using a black eye pencil. I have used Bourjois Khol & Contour in Ultra Black.
Step 9: Apply a winged liner to the upper lash line. Start the line from the inner 1/3rd upper lash line, rather from the inner corner itself. I have used Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight in Paris.
Step 10: Apply a black liner on the lower lash line, again starting from mid of the lash line.
Step 11: Smudge the line with the dark brown used in the crease. Pull the shadow towards the winged liner.
Step 12: Curl your lashes and apply any mascara.
This is the final eye look.
Apply your foundation and concealer. Set it with a powder. Apply a subtle peach blush and your favorite neutral lipstick. And you are good to go!!! Try this look with any other set of shades to add color to the look. Hope this technique works for your eyes. 🙂
[alert-note]I had done a similar eye look long back and totally agree on this making our eyes appear bigger. The lower lash line application from the middle makes all the difference in my opinion. Fabulous attempt Himani. 🙂 [/alert-note]
