Easy Yet Charismatic Makeup Tricks from Experts to Make Your Eyes Pop

These particular eye makeup tips will truly flatter you with innovative and detailed experts’ guidelines.

 To Open Up Your Eyes

To Open Up Your Eyes:

“Take a white eye pencil and line the inside rim of your lower eyelid. This really makes eyes pop! Fun fact: Look at the old black/white photos of the gorgeous women of the ‘30s and ‘40s like Marlene Dietrich and you’ll see this was done to them. Additionally, if your eyes are a close set, use the white pencil to lightly line the section where the upper and lower lids come together, closest to the nose. This will make them appear wider apart. The key here is to make sure it’s subtle.”

For Thin Brows:

“For people with thin brows, use a pencil first that is a bit lighter than your natural color to define the shape, then follow with a brow powder that is close to your natural hair color with a thin, strong angle brush. After, use a brow gel or sealer which will set the powder. My fave is the Model in a Bottle – Long Lasting Eyebrow Sealer. It is by far the best sealer out there and I have tried many.”

Make Mascara Count:

“Make a $5 tube of mascara look as good as the results from a $25 tube by holding a business card up along the inside edge of your lashes and sweeping the brush against it with your other hand. This way your lashes can’t bend out of the way of the brush and you end up coating every lash all the way to the tip. The results will leave you wide-eyed in more ways than one.”

On the Inside:

“Lining the waterline, or inner rim of the eye, adds intensity and extra definition, and creates the illusion of a thicker, fuller lash line.”

Faking the Straight Line:

“Smudging is key when you’re afraid you won’t create a straight line,” says Chang-Babaian. “When applying eyeliner, it’s not about creating a straight line with the pencil, but going back and forth with your brush until the line is smooth.”

Larger Eyes:

“If you completely cover both the top and bottom lash lines with liner, you’re going to close the eye, making it look smaller. To make it look larger, you only want to apply it both halfway on top and bottom.”

Make Them Look:

“Wherever you put darkness is where your eye is drawn to, which means eyeliner allows you to change the shape of your eye.” Got small eyes? Make them bigger with a smoky wraparound. Want to elongate your eyes’ width? Do an exaggerated winged tip.”
