Get your brow in shape

Well shaped eyebrows create a flattering frame for the eyes. Anything that highlights the eyes makes them appear larger.

Use a concealer

Applying concealer can hide dark circles that make your eyes appear smaller. It can also highlight the entire eye area and draw attention to your lashes.

Apply eyeliner

Lightly line the upper and lower lids from the inner corner to the outer corner with a soft brown or taupe eyeliner. Apply the eyeliner a little heavier on the outside corners to make your eyes look longer rather than rounded.

Line under your eyes

If you aren't one to use dark eyeliner on your lower lash line, take a neutral or white pencil and trace there instead this will brighten your eyes.

But if you do prefer a darker lower line, do a few extra strokes towards the edge of your outer eye for a wider-looking gaze.

Apply lipsticks

Apply a matte nude shadow over the entire lid, as this will even out your coloring and create a good starting base.

Coat your lashes  

You can wear fake lashes if your natural lashes are short. The bigger and thicker your lashes, the more attention your eyes will command. Curl your lashes and then apply a few coats of black mascara.

Using a highlighter or white powder, dab the inner corners of your eyes. To draw more focus to your eyes, use the highlighter under your brow bones as well.
