How to Use Makeup to Make Eyes and Lips Appear Larger
Long ago, having lush, full lips and big, doe like eyes was a sign of fertility in a woman. Today, having big lips and eyes is still very favorable, yet not all of us are blessed with them. This article will tell you how to use your makeup to emphasize your features in the best way possible.
For comparison purposes in our pictures, one eye will be made over while the other will remain naked.
Apply concealer.Concealer in a shade slightly lighter than your skin tone illuminates the eye area, eliminates dark circles, and draws attention to dark lashes. Dab it underneath and around the eyes, and blend.
Pick a neutral shade of eyeshadow that matches your skin tone to use as a base.Apply it from your lash line to your brow bone.
Blend a darker neutral shade, such as a mauve, gray, or brown, onto the outer corners of your eyes and the crease of the eyelid.Emphasizing these two areas gives the eyes subtle definition, and creates the illusion of wider eyes.
Dab a pearly eyeshadow or highlighter upon the inner corners of the eyes.Blend upwards toward the middle of the eyelid, as well as on the brow bones. This step brightens and awakens the eyes.
Gently pull the lower rim of your eye down.Apply white eyeshadow either on an angled brush or your finger. This step helps reduce the look of bloodshot eyes, and has an instant opening effect.
Line the eyes in brown or black, making sure to give a tiny "flick" at the outer corners to elongate their shape.Do not line the lower lashline, as this shrinks the eye.
Gently grasp lashes with an eyelash curler.When eyelashes are straight, they cast a shadow on the rest of the eye. This step, which takes less than twenty seconds, often has the biggest effects.
Swipe on mascara.Whether its two applications or seven, the creation of a dark veil of lashes is the most important step in making the eyes appear larger. With semi-shut eyes,focus on the center of the upper lashline and on the lashes at the outer corners of your eyes. A waterproof mascara on the lower lashline prevents the inevitable smudging and creasing .
Comb through lashes with an eyelash comb.Slowly pull the comb upwards through the lashes. This step gets rid of clumps and defines the individual lashes, making it look less like you're wearing mascara.
Groom brows.Arched, well-groomed brows frame the eyes, and the first time you look in the mirror after grooming them, you'll ask yourself why you never did before! Tweeze stray hairs above and below the brows, then fill in the gaps with an ashy-colored pencil or powder.
Slather on that lip balm!Moisturized lips are necessary as a base for lipstick, liner, and gloss.
Define the lips with a liner that will matches your lipstick.Instead of applying it so it perfectly reflects the shape of your lips, level out the curve of the cupid's bow. This will help your lips appear plumper on top.
Fill in your lips with a warm, rosy lip color.Avoid plums and wines because just like dark clothing makes our figures look slimmer, dark lip colors will make our lips look smaller.
Dab a clear gloss into the middle of the lips.For an extra "boost", a lip-plumping formula will plump up lips further with a refreshing tingle.
Highlight the cupid's bow with a pearly eyeshadow or a creamy highlighter.
Compare the results when you get your finished look.

- Blend everything.
- Make sure none of the lipstick gets smeared on your teeth or on the surrounding skin of the face. It looks very clown like if you do.
- Use eye shadows as close to your skin tone as possible but not the exact same color. You still want it to look like you're wearing makeup-just not piles of it.
- White (or silver) eyeliner/eyeshadow looks raunchy as a tightline on medium to dark skin tones. Use a nude or peach color instead.
- If lips are very chapped, rub a warm, damp washcloth over them to remove dry skin..
- Be very careful while applying any eye makeup, especially mascara and eyeliner. You could harm your eyes if you aren't cautious.
- Don't tug or squeeze to hard on the eyelash curler when in use. If you squeeze gently and lightly, you should be just fine.
- Do not apply eyeliner thickly and around the whole eye. This actually makes the eyes look smaller. You can use white eyeliner or a very light pastel colored eyeliner to line the rest of the eyes that weren't lined with the black.
