How to Imitate Bigger Lids with Makeup

Some girls have extremely small eyes, or eyes with hooded lids, which is worse if you ask me. The best part is that you can create an illusion for bigger looking eyes if you apply the right makeup technique. Let me show you such a design and you can decide if it is right for your eyes. Take a look at the steps and follow them one by one. Here we go:

  • The skin of the lids can ruin the makeup by producing too much skin oils, which will smudge the makeup layers. In order to prevent such a disaster, you should apply a makeup primer on the lids before any application of makeup products. The primer has one very simple, but effective function – it absorbs the skin oils before they reach the makeup and ruin it.

  • Once the lids are well prepared with the primer, you are allowed to apply the first layer of makeup (finally). Cover the lid with bronze color or something like that. This base color must be neutral and its shade must be close to the color of your skin.

  • Then, take a colored eye pencil and draw a line at the crease or a little bit above it.

  • Smudge this line with a brush. Try to create a winged end at the outer corner of the eye.

  • If needed, reapply the color and smudge again, pull the color only to the brow, not to the lashes.

  • Finish the look with a bold and winged eyeliner.

  • Then, move to the bottom lid and apply the same color as the one at the crease area.

  • Apply thick coat of mascara and enjoy this look. This is how you get a bigger lids with a simple makeup design. Enjoy it!
