I don’t hate having small round eyes as much as I hate my cheeks, but because my face structure is round and somewhat big, I need to make them appear bigger and wider, specially on occasions that I’m gonna be photographed or just want to look extra pretty :)
If you’re not comfortable with make-up, or you don’t feel okay making yourself appear different from what you really are, then maybe this post isn’t for you.
First step: Brows
Brows define the structure of your face, and they can really help to make your eyes appear bigger. Don’t make them too full or too dark, because the fuller and darker they are, the smaller your eyes will look. Use a pencil, eyeshadow, or any method that you feel comfortable with.
Second step: Eyeshadow
If you know the basic knowledge of eyeshadow, this won’t be a problem. Keep the brow bone with a light color that reflects light, the eyelid with a neutral color (not too dark, not too light) and define your eyelid with the darkest shade, give it a little “wing” at the end and this will help making your eyes appear bigger. Using the darkest shade, line your bottom lashes; eyeshadow is a lot more subtle than a hard line made with eyeliner.
Third step: Eyeliner
Do not use dark eyeliner inside your eye, this will make them look smaller. Instead of that, use a cream or beige eyeliner, or white if it’s a night look.
Fourth step: Mascara and false lashes.
Lashes really bring a lot of attention to your eyes. Use demi lashes if you have round eyes like me, or full natural lashes if you want a more dramatic look. Use several layers of mascara, make sure it gives you volume and lenght.
And that’s it! you can always use circle lenses for that “pop” effect on special occasions, don’t forget that the more dramatic your eyes are, the more subtle the lips should be, but that’s rule you can always break!
