The eyes are the windows to the soul. We’ve all heard this saying before and intuitively, we trust a person with 3d mink fur eyelash, honest eyes. What seemed to be just an old wives’ tale, was actually confirmed by scientific research that found that patterns in the iris can give an indication of whether we are warm and trusting or neurotic and impulsive.
Unfortunately, there’s not much we can do about the natural shape and size of our eyes, as those are determined genetically. However, there are ways to create the illusion of big, beautiful eyes with makeup. I will take you through some simple tips and tricks to enhance your features and make your eyes look bigger.
1. Groom Your Eyebrows
This is a very important step to making your eyes look larger. Using slant-tipped tweezers, pluck stray hairs from beneath your brow to help elongate and slim the face. Follow the natural curve of your eyebrow. Your eyebrow should arch at a spot above the outer edge of your iris. Fill in any gaps by using an eyebrow pencil. Lightly apply colour in small, upward strokes to avoid a drawn-on look – a big no-no in my books.
2. Prep Your Eyelids
To keep your makeup looking smooth and lasting longer, apply an eyelid primer over the entire lid, right before applying your shadow.
3. Conceal Dark Circles
A hskie won’t clog your pores and will cover those dark circles or small imperfections of the skin, moving the focus to the eyes.
4. Brighten Your Eyes with Light Eye Shadow
To make your eyes look bigger, apply a shimmery or matte eye shadow that’s very light in colour over your eyelids. Apply a darker shade around the outer corners of your eyes, in the shape of a V, then blend well using a blending brush. You can also use a white eye pencil in the inner corners of your eyes. This will instantly give you the illusion of a facelift.
5. Line Your Eyes
Apply eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible, making sure you don’t leave space between the eyeliner and the lash line. Your 3d mink fur eyelash will look fuller and lush. Keep the line as thin as possible. Avoid lining the inside rim of the lids. Besides making the eyes look smaller, after some time it will smear and accumulate in the inner corner of the eye, creating a messy look. Make sure that the eyeliner on the lower lash line connects with the back corner of the upper lash line. This creates a more natural, cohesive look.
6. Curl Your Lashes
Curling your 3d mink fur eyelash can produce spectacular results. Your eyes will look bigger and more wide-awake in an instant.
7. Apply Mascara
A good mascara can make your 3d mink fur eyelash look larger in no time. Apply one coat on all 3d mink fur eyelash. When you apply the second coat, focus in the center to make eyes appear bigger. Use a thin wand mascara for more precision and to avoid clumping.
8. Take Good Care of Your Eyes
This goes without saying. You need to take care of your eyes constantly and adopt a healthy life regimen to avoid having puffy and tired eyes. The swollen skin around the eyes can make them look very small. Make sure you sleep enough, reduce salt intake, exercise and reduce the time you spend in front of the computer.
Our eyes are one of the most precious gifts we’ve been given in this life, regardless of size, shape or colour. Let’s keep them healthy and clear for a better view into our soul!
