Eye Makeup Tips for Sparkling up your Small Eyes
Prep your eyes with concealer
The very first step is to prep your eyes with a concealer as this is the most effective way to keep the makeup last as long as possible. Moreover, if you have any under eye circles or bluish discoloration just under your inner eye, then do not fret over, as the concealer will mask them completely. Just three dots of concealer are enough to get proper result. Remember to pat the concealer until it disappears with your ring finger and not rub.
Selecting the right eye shadows
Dark colours such as browns, blacks and navy blues are a complete no-no for the small eyes because they tend to make your eyes look more smaller. Instead, you can always opt for the lighter shades that are reflective such as lavenders, golds, peaches, ivory, silver, cream, pale pink, yellowish beige and soft green. They are the perfect shadows that can certainly make your eyes look bigger, sexier, bolder and more beautiful.
Follow with eyeliner
When it comes to the eyeliner, it is essential to select the darker colours like navy, charcoal, brown or black to contrast against the whites of your eye shadow. It is recommended to use pencil rather than a liquid eyeliner or gels as they will chip and flake but the pencil can be pushed around easily to form a stunning shape. Moreover, when you apply an eyeliner on your eyes, ensure that it goes from thin to thicker, from the inner to outer eye corner on your upper lash line. While some people like consistent thickness which is fine if your eyes are set quite far from each other.
Add some shimmer
One of the secrets of professional makeup artists is putting a bit of your lightest eye shadow near the darker tones in the inner corner of your eye - the light on the eye makes it pop. Moreover, this will also help in giving the desire shape and definition to your eye.
Curl your eyelashes
The most effective tip to make your eyes look bigger and bolder is by curling the eyelashes. To add a more dramatic effect, try heating the curler under a blow dryer for a couple of seconds. However, test the curler before applying to lashes as there are high chances where you can burn yourself.
Once you are done with the curling, it is now time for the mascara. The trick is to first apply mascara on top lashes and then continue with the bottom ones. Let them dry for few minutes.
