1. Go for Nude Colours

An amazing quick and simple way to make small eyes look larger is to use a white or nude eyeliner. This will open up your eyes and make them appear wider. To use this technique, apply the white or nude eyeliner to both your upper and lower lash line. Then pop on a good coat of mascara and your favourite eyelashes and your good to go!

2. Winged False Eyelashes AKA Cat Eye

These kind of eyelashes will elongate your eyes giving the appearance they are bigger than they actually are. If you use these kind of eyelashes combined with the nude eyeliner technique below you will notice quite a big difference from doing this! We recommend you use the Luxury 3D Mink or Faux Mink (vegan) eyelashes as these are fluffy and light weight which makes them great for smaller eyes!

3. Avoid Liquid or Gel Eyeliner

Use a pencil or crayon eyeliner rather than liquid or gel. This is because liquid and gel can look too harsh on smaller eyes and can make them look smaller. If you apply the pencil or crayon eyeliner and use the smudging technique below, you’ll be good to go in no time! Brown liners can also be great for smaller eyes as it isn’t as harsh

4. Smudge that liner

This is a great way to give the appearance of larger eyes. By smudging your eyeliner, this will elongate your eyes, you can use this technique on your upper and lower lash line! If you’re looking for something more subtle, try not to smudge it out as much.

How to smudge: Apply the eyeliner to your upper eyelid. We recommend you use an eyeliner pencil or crayon for this as gel or liquid liner won’ smudge as easily or as well. Either use your finger or a buffing brush to smudge out the eyeliner. Be sure to be gentle and careful when doing this as it could easily end up looking like you have a black eye if you go overboard! Gradually smudge the eyeliner out until you’re happy. Apply a good coat of mascara and pop on your favourite pair of false eyelashes. We recommend the Luxury 3D Mink or Faux Mink lashes as these are super full and fluffy whilst keeping it light weight! To apply to your bottom lash line, go through the same process until you’re happy and apply some mascara to the lashes. If you want to go all out, why not apply some dark eyeshadow around where you have smudged to give you more of a smokey affect! This technique will make your eyes look larger and whiter if done correctly!
