Masacara: Your New Best Friend
The number one tool you have to really open up your eyes and make them look bigger is mascara. Experiment with some of the different formulas on the market, but focus especially on lengthening and thickening mascaras. Using an eyelash curler to curl your lashes will open up your eyes even more.
Use a light colored shadow over the entire eyelid. You can use a darker shade in the creases if you like, but dark shadow over much of your lid will make your eyes recede and look smaller. Use shades like peach, pink, gold or tan shades for the lid. Now apply an even lighter shade right in the middle of your eyelid. You can also try using a pastel shadow on the inner corner of your eyes and a darker shade on the outer corner.
Apply a thin line of eyeliner, right at the base of the lashes. Try using a softer color of eyeliner than a severe black. Smudge the liner slightly to avoid a harsh line.Curl your lashes and then apply mascara. Use two or three thin coats of mascara and be sure to let each coat dry in between applications. Place the mascara wand at the very roots of your lashes and pull it smoothly all the way to the ends in a single, smooth stroke.
Shaping your eyebrows will also make your small eyes look larger. Leave the inner part of your eyebrow a bit thicker and create an arch. Use an eyebrow pencil or powder to fill an any sparse spots of your brow.
