Learning how to apply makeup for small eyes is pretty simple, you just need to have the right eye products to make it happen and a little practice. Before we start, though, let me tell you the makeup products you will need to make your eyes appear bigger.

Makeup Products You Need to Make Your Small Eyes Look Bigger

  1. White Eyeliner Pencil
  2. Black Eyeliner Pencil
  3. Eyeshadow Palette With Neutrals
  4. Lengthening + Volumizing Mascarahow to make small eyes look bigger

Makeup Steps to Make Your Small Eyes Look Bigger

  1. Apply a pale and shimmery eyeshadow to your entire eyelid.
  2. Use a brown eyeshadow in the outer contour of the eye.
  3. Apply black eyeliner to the outer upper and outer lower lash line and then go over it with black eyeshadow. My model had eyes that slanted down, so we made her black liner slant up to counteract and bring balance to the eye. That’s not necessary if your eyes don’t slant down unless you want a slight winged liner look.
  4. Next, use a shimmery pale eyeshadow and sweep it on the inner-lower-lash-line making sure that there isn’t a harsh line between the black liner and the shimmery shadow. It should be a gradient blend.
  5. Use a white eyeliner in on the lower rim of your eye.
  6. With a volumizing and lengthening mascara, sweep two or three coats on the outer lashes avoiding mascara towards the inner eye.
