While some people are gifted with sparkling bright eyes, some are not. When you start wearing makeup, you learn which features of your face need to be highlighted or contoured. Your eye makeup can tell a lot about your face. It can make you look awake or dull. Personally I have small eyes. Sometimes when people see me, they ask me whether I just woke up from sleep. The thing dey vex me  sotay e dey do me to beat somebori , thank God for using makeup to calm my nerves hehehe.

Tips to make your eyes look bigger.

  • When you apply eyeliner on your lower lashes, do it just *BELOW* the lash line and not inside and stop halfway. Don’t let the line to come all the way to the inner corner of your eyes.

  • For your water line or wet line, apply a nude or white pencil. Using a soft nude or white liner in your water line will open up your eyes giving an effect of bigger eyes.

  • Apply a thin line of eyeliner on the top of your eyelid. Extend the eyeliner beyond the outer corner of your eyes making the line to move upwards a little. This helps to make your eyes appear wider.

  • Define your brows. Your eyebrows help to lift your face and enhance your look. Your eyebrow brings attention to the entire eye area. People will perceive your eyes as bigger when more focus is put on the area surrounding them.

  • Highlight the brow bone. Adding a highlight under the tail of your eyebrow ie the brow bone will give a mega lift to your eyes. Concealer is highly recommended for this. Go for a shade slightly lighter than your natural skin tone to illuminate the eye area.  Anything that is lighter will brighten.

  • Curl your lashes. Lash curlers lengthens the lashes making the eyes to look wide open. To achieve this effect, invest in a pair of lash curler and curl before applying mascara. On the alternative, you can use a clean mascara wand (buy one solely for this) and comb your lashes before applying mascara. It helps to lengthen the lashes as well.


Before you commence, make sure you treat any eye problem you might have e.g. puffiness.
Swelling around the eyes can make them look smaller. Reduce puffiness in your eyes with these steps.

  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Wash your face with cool water
  • Place cold used teabags over your eyes. The tannin in the tea act as an astringent tightening the skin.
  • Reduce your salt intake. Too much salt leads to water retention.
  • Exercise. This increases circulation thereby reducing water retention.

Final tip

Before going to bed at night, place two spoons in the freezer overnight. When you wake up in the morning, rub the sleep out of your eyes and place the two spoons over each of your eyes for about one minute. This helps your eyes to appear bigger and brighter throughout the day. Also it helps to reduce the appearance of under eye circles.
