Get your lashes on!

Ok, here goes………let me know what you think by leaving a comment on this post.

The eyes are the most expressive feature on your face, so we should make the most of them. Makeup can make the eyes look a lot bigger. Some of the best ways to make your eyes look larger include some of the following makeup tricks:

Curl Your Lashes
Using a lash curler on your upper lashes can work wonders.  Curled lashes instantly open up the eyes, making them appear bigger. A little secret I have been doing for years on shoots is heating your stainless steel lash curler with your blow dryer before applying to the lashes.  The result is amazing!

Lash extensions
False eyelashes can even further open up your eyes and make them appear larger.

Mascara
For a dramatic look, apply mascara only to the upper lashes. To make eyes seem wider, apply to the bottom too.

Eye Shadow
Eye shadow can significantly enhance the appearance of your eyes. The key to big eyes is keeping your eye shadow palette light. This is because dark colours make features recede, but light colors bring them forward.

Eyeliner
Apply beige eyeliner to the inner lower rims of the eyes (Personally, I think white eyeliner looks too harsh). This is an instant eye opener. Avoid using black eyeliner altogether near the eyes because it will only make your eyes appear smaller.  If you have to use a darker eyeliner, opt for dark brown or grey and blend.

Eyebrows
Framing the face is a necessary step in making the eyes look larger. If eyebrows are left bushy and overgrown, the entire eye area looks smaller.

Brow Highlighter
Apply this on the lower bone of your eyebrows, they are a highlight to open up your eyes.

Eye Drops
Reduce the redness in your eyes. Clear, white eyes make you look fresh, awake and wide-eyed.

Get Enough Sleep
Puffy eyes are small eyes!  So make sure you get enough sleep to reduce the bags under your eyes. This is key if you are on a shoot the next day! Make sure you get enough sleep so you arrive on set looking fresh.

Thanks KAT!

Right, am off to get myself some brow highlighter…..Would go with the more sleep option, but I think I actually overslept last night and this has also given me the small eyed look!
