Eyes Trick and Makeup Tips

  • If you’re going to line your eyes but want them to look bigger, line only the top. But if you want to line the bottom too, line just the outer half.
  • Another tip for eyes to appear bigger: Line your eyes with white eyeliner. Darker colors make your features smaller; consequently, black eyeliner would make your eyes appear smaller.
  • Put your pencil eyeliner in the freezer for awhile before applying it. The tip will be more hard and make the eyeliner easier to apply.
  • To give the appearance of wide-set eyes (eyes that are further apart), apply eye shadow/liner on the outer part of your eyes; vice versa for a desired appearance of close-set eyes (eyes that are closer together).
  • For a modern version of liquid liner, dip your eyeliner brush in water, then eye shadow, and apply.
  • If you want a smoky eye, use an eyeliner that smudges easily, and smudge it with a spongy tip. Some eyeliners supply these on the opposite end of the liner part, like Max Factor Pensilks. After smudging your eyeliner, apply eye shadow close to the lashes in the same color as your eyeliner.
  • If you want your lashes to appear thicker, apply coats of mascara. Try not to apply it all at once, or you can get clumps.
  • To separate lashes, use a lash comb. This also gets rid of clumps.
  • When applying any eyeliner, pull your eyelid taut to make a smoother surface for the liner.
  • Apply mascara from roots to ends of lashes while moving wand from side to side.
  • Mascara starts to go bad after about 3 months or so (smell and clumps take place), so make sure to replace it accordingly.
  • Applying foundation on your lids before eyeshadow helps the shadow to stick better.
  • Usually there are three basic shades for eyeshadow and their locations: The lightest goes right below the eyebrow (to make eyes appear brighter), the darkest in the eye crease (to define your crease), and the medium shade goes on the actual eyelid (for the basic color).
