Eyes are the mirror of the soul, so many women strive to make them apper more expressive, open and larger with makeup. The right cosmetics and application techniques work wonders.

However, it is not always easy to achieve the desired effect because it is important to know certain secrets and life hacks that create the illusion of large eyes. NYX told us about them in more detail.

Shimmering eyeshadows

Shiny and shimmery eyeshadows are great not only for creating incredible evening looks. They can also play a big role in visually highlighting and enlarging your eyes.

Sparkles reflect light, which makes it seem like the eyes are opening up and the eyelids are much more expressive.

Emphasize only the outer corners

Eyeliner is one of the most important cosmetic products for many women because it can help to enlarge the eyes. All you need to do is apply it only to the outer third of the upper eyelid.

This simple method helps to draw attention to the outer corners of your eyes, which in turn makes them appear more elongated and open. On the other hand, darkening the entire eyelid can narrow the look.

Curling your eyelashes

One of the easiest ways to make your eyes look more expressive is to curl your lashes. The more they point upward, the more open your eyes will appear.

False eyelashes

If you don't like using curling irons or your lashes are too short, then false eyelashes are a better option.

Use white eyeliner

White eyeliner is often considered the best cosmetic for small eyes. Apply it or a light pencil on the lower waterline. This will instantly create the illusion that your eyes are much larger than they actually are.

Darken the crease

If your eyes are small, darkening the crease can help add depth to your gaze and visually enlarge them. The key is to use nude shades to make them look like natural eyeshadow.

Inner corners of the eye

Gently highlight the inner corners of your eyes. This will make your eyes look more open and awake.

You can use a highlighter, concealer, and even light eyeshadow.

Blend the eyeshadow up to the eyebrows

Try blending the eye shadow above the crease all the way to the eyebrows. This will create the impression that the space between them and the lashes has increased, and it will visually brighten and enlarge the eyes. Also, add a little highlighter right under the brow to further enhance it.

Avoid too thick eyeliner

Large arrows can be a great option. They can complement the most daring looks, but if you have rather small eyes, it is better to try to make thinner and more delicate lines.

Shape your eyebrows

Don't ignore your eyebrows. They also affect the appearance of the eyes. For example, eyebrows that are too thick and straight can visually weigh down the look, while the presence of a bend creates the opposite effect.

Of course, you don't need to radically change the natural shape of your eyebrows. This will make you look artificial. However, make sure that they are not overgrown either.
