Have People Notice You With These Eye Makeup Tips

by: Angie Leighsmith

What can be more sexy to a warm-blooded male that a woman with big, sexy eyes? Ok, that list can actually go on and on and on. What was I thinking? The truth is, there a large number of men who do find big eyes sexy and seductive. Look at Anne Hathaway, for example. She’s made a career of having big, “doe-y” eyes.

My eyes are kind of small but that doesn’t mean I walk around all the time wearing sunglasses. I have my secrets and tricks to achieving the illusion of big eyes, and I put together this list of some of these secrets. I also asked a few other women who suffer from the same small eyes affliction like me, what they do to overcoming this small eyes syndrome. Here’s what some of what they have to say:

  • Eyeliner is much like a wizard’s magic wand. It has to power to create the illusion of bigger, more expressive eyes. Line the entire top lash line and extend the line slightly at the corners. You can also line the bottom of your eyes, but concentrate color only on the outer third and extend it slightly past the edge. A soft, smoky look will open your eyes more than a thin, hard line. Try to stick with dark, neutral colors with a hint of black for lining. Bright shades will only make them seem smaller and that’s what we are trying to avoid.
  • The right application on your lashes can be a big eye-opener. No pun intended! Curl them three times before applying mascara at the base, halfway up and at the tip. This creates a gentle, rounded curl. Next, fan out your lashes while applying mascara. Brush the inner third in toward your nose, the middle third straight out and the outer third toward your temples.
  • Contrary to the popular belief you may have read in Cosmo, dark, dramatic eye shadow will not make your eyes stand out. In fact, it does the exact opposite. If you have small eyes, keep it simple by using only light-colored shadows, and never wear more than two shades at once. Brush a subtle base color from lash to brow, and then use a slightly darker shade to create subtle definition in the crease.

For many people, the eye area is a real problem. I’m talking about swelling around your eyes, puffiness, and all of the other nasty things that make us look older than we really are. While we were discussing eye care makeup tips so of the women also gave some helpful hints on caring for these types of eye issues:

  • Certain moisturizers should not be applied to the eye area. They cause it to swell up worse than it already is.
  • Separate eye creams and gels are a must if you suffer with puffy or aging eyes.
  • Hold a metal spoon under cold running water for a few minutes and then gently press it onto the eye area to soothe, cool and reduce swelling.
  • Thin cucumber slices are a good one for reducing puffiness and soothing tired, sore eyes.
  • Hemorrhoid creams applied to the puffy area, are fantastic for reducing swelling.
  • Soak used tea bags in cold water for around ten minutes and place them on the puffy area.
  • Elevate your head when you sleep to promote fluid to drain away from your eye area.
  • Place a slice of raw potato underneath your eyes. The potassium in them counteracts dark circles.
  • Avoid salty foods as these can cause fluid retention.
