Today, I wanted to give my two cents regarding some tips on how I do eye makeup for my small eyes. Hope you find my Makeup tricks for small eyes useful:
A winged eyeliner gives the illusion of a longer upper lid. Make sure to not make it so thick that it covers your entire eyelids, which will make your small eyes appear smaller.
I forgot to add in here ^ that tighlining also helps a great deal. But I hardly do it because the liner always starts to transfer on my waterline. So, I don’t do it unless I’m doing a smokey eye wherein I have applied a black kohl on my waterline. Do you also face this transfer problem? Any solution would be highly appreciated! ^_^
This a very helpful technique to define eyes. I take a matte brown eyeshadow on a fluffy brush and blend it from the middle of the eyelids to outward direction. If you want a lift in your eyes, don’t follow the socket line like I do. Just blend the eyeshadow from middle to straight upwards.
I wear smudged eyes using eyeliner a lot in winters. Smudged eyes do have a tendency to make small eyes appear smaller but here’s what I do to avoid that. I don’t smudge liner all the way to the inner corners. Plus I smudge the liner from the outer corners in an almost straight direction. I also tighline my upper waterline here. Check out my post on how to do easy smokey eyes using just eyeliner. It will take a few practice sessions but it is easy.
