4 Tricks to Flatter your Eyes
Have big eyes? Read on
Big eyes are all the rave now. Thanks to celebrities like Zooey Deschanel, Christina Ricci and Mila Kunis, we’ve finally stopped trying to dish out makeup tips to make big eyes look smaller. If anything, bigger has become better in the eye game. In fact, more makeup tutorials are giving tips on making eyes look bigger. But you’re one of those who’ve won the genetic lottery and got a pair of big beautiful eyes? Lucky you. Then again, even those naturals need some help to pretty up.
- More mascara
Mascara is for everyone, yes. But big eyes can only get prettier when framed by thick long lashes. When I say frame, I mean applying mascara even to your bottom lashes. If your eyes are the windows to your soul, those lashes make up its intricately designed frame. The dual-length bristles of its full curl wand lifts lashes up while its essential blend of minerals, antioxidants and natural extracts and long-wearing formula conditions lashes and hold the curl in place. No clumping, smudging or flaking.
Keep them dramatically long with extra body and definition with Bareminerals Flawless Definition Curl and Lengthen Mascara.
- Add shimmer to your shadow
What better way to stand out than to shimmer? A little shimmer goes a long way for big eyes. This shadow duo doesn’t only dazzle in color but also provides smooth, silky texture for effortless application and seamless blending. It’s also long wearing to keep your shimmer glimmer even after the party’s over.
You can line your lash line with matte eyeshadow then proceed to adding shimmer to your lids and under your bottom lashes. Bareminerals Eyeshadow 2.0 in Showstopper features Bravo (periwinkle) and Encore (jeweled lavender) to help you achieve this look.
