So we have compiled our top 7 simple tips to make your eyes look bigger using eye makeup, so you can have gorgeous, brighter, wider eyes in a matter of minutes.

1. IT’S ALL IN THE EYE PREP

Never underestimate the power of a flawless complexion to complement your eye makeup. Always use an eye cream & concealer to soothe, get rid of any under-eye puffiness and conceal any dark circles. This will brighten your eyes, instantly lifting and making them look bigger.

2. SHIMMER THE INNER CORNER

If you start to sense a pattern, it’s because brightening your eyes is key to making your eyes look bigger. Help create this illusion by adding a light shimmer of color in the inner corners of your eyes to open them up.

3. DEFINE YOURSELF

Defining your eyes with eyeliner, and even shaping your eyebrows can help create the illusion of larger, prominent eyes. When you look at another person, you’re instantly drawn to defined, sharp eyes. Create extra depth by adding a slightly darker eyeshadow in the crease of your eyes to make them stand out more. We love the ‘Smoke’ shade in the Instant Look in a Palette in Beauty Glow, the perfect matte brown shade to define and add depth.

4. GO NUDE (EYELINER)

We’ve all heard of white eyeliner in the waterline to make your eyes pop, but this can sometimes look a little jarring and contrast harshly which can actually make your eyes look smaller. Try a nude eyeliner like our Rock ‘n’ Kohl eyeliner in Eye Cheat, which is specially designed to make your eyes look bigger, in a universal nude eyeliner shade that suits everyone!

5. PERFECT THE FELINE FLICK

You can extend your eyes and help define with a classic feline flick. Winged eyeliner is excellent for opening up your eyes and reshaping them to give them that cat-eye makeup that is flattering on everyone!
