Tweeze those brows
Shaping your brows can make a world of a difference and add a tonne of structure to your face. Brows with space between them give the illusion of bigger eyes. Bold and bushy but well-kept brows bring a lot of attention to your eyes. If you have any gaps in your eyebrows, fill them in with an eyebrow pencil. This helps you get fuller brows and adds dimension to your face.
Conceal those dark circles
Crow’s feet under your eyes can cause them to look droopy and tired. Using a concealer to cover those pesky dark circles, is a simple step that can even out your skin tone and divert attention to your eyes. First use a concealer closest to your skin tone to conceal those dark circles, after which you can add a light layer of foundation to even out your complexion. You can use the Fit Me Finder tool to choose the perfect shade of foundation and concealer while you are in the comfort of your home. After applying foundation, use an illuminating concealer to further brighten your eyes. Set the concealer and foundation in place using some powder to avoid any creasing. This is a great way to achieve the illusion of bigger eyes.
Add volume to your lashes
Simple tips and tricks can help you answer your question of how to make your eyes look bigger. Using an eyelash curler can open up your eyes and make you look more awake. After curling your lashes, add a thick coat of mascara to your lashes. This helps them look voluminous and lengthens them. Thick and wispy lashes are the perfect way to get the doll eyes makeup. Lay the mascara on thickly on your outer lashes to achieve the illusion of bigger eyes.
Kohl it out
While applying kajal to your lower lashline, line only the outer end of your lashline. Lining your entire waterline with kajal will make them look smaller. Instead, line only the outer corner of your eyes with some black kajal, this will open up your eyes and make them appear doe-like. You can soften the look using a brush and smudging it slightly. You can also tightline your eyes, as this gives the look of fuller lashes.
Inner corner highlight
Adding a dash of shimmer to your inner corners will really make your eyes pop. After you are done applying eyeshadow on your eyelids, you can take a shimmery shade and apply it to the inner corner of your eye. If you want a more blinding highlight, you can simply use your highlighter and add some shimmer to the inner corners of your eyes.
