Ways To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger – With & Without Makeup

Ways To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger - With & Without Makeup

Wing liner

Extend your lines at the outer corners of your eyes with an up ‘n’ out technique. Apply at a 45-degree angle first and then continue to line from the outer corners to the middle of the upper lashline

Strong brows

Have them professionally shaped and try the catwalk model trick of brushing them up to open your eyes.


Mascara is THE magic wand for making eyes look bigger and if you use only one product make it this, but try a lengthening formula over a thickening one. For added oomph try sticking 3-4 individual lashes to the outer corners of the eye to create a cat eye shape.


Apply a touch of highlighter to the inner corner of your eyelids (near the tear ducts) and below the arches of your brows. This will instantly open your eyes making them appear wider.

Curl your lashes

This instantly lifts lashes, our favourite curlers are Charlotte Tilbury (£18).

Brighten dark circles

Colour correct dark circles with an illuminating concealer a shade slightly lighter than your foundation to lift and brighten. We like the affordable L’Oreal Paris Touche Magique Illuminating Concealer (£7.99). Remember to take it down to your cheek in a ‘V’ shape, in order to brighten up the whole face.
