Make your eyes look bigger with make-up – technique 2

Start with the brows to get a beautiful eye frame. Shape them and fill them in using an eyeshadow or a pencil, use a comb and fix the effect with a brow gel. Apply an eyeshadow base to even out the skin tone plus smooth the right concealer under the eyes to hide dark circles. Use a delicate light beige eyeshadow as a base. Apply a slightly darker eyeshadow, working from the middle of the eye to the outer corner. Use dark brown for the outer corner and smudge it above the crease as well. In the inner corner, use a very light beige to get the contrast and add definition to the eyes. Use a black eyeliner for the upper lash line – move from the middle to the outer corner. The further you go, the thicker the line gets. If you know how to do the winged eyeliner, go for it to enhance the eyes. Define the water line with a white pencil for even bigger-looking eyes. Use a lash curler and mascara. For a bolder effect, apply two coats.

The rule is simple: light shadow for the inner corners, dark colors for the outer corners.
