Written by Urvi DalalMay 01, 2020

Big, bright eyes look super attractive. Now while not all of us are lucky enough to have naturally big peepers, we are lucky enough to have makeup to help us fake them. Some clever makeup techniques are all it takes to make your eyes look a lot bigger than they actually are.

Read on to find out some smart yet simple makeup hacks to make your eyes look Disney princess-like big and beautiful.

A half-almond smudge to the rescue

If you want your eyes to look bigger, then you must focus on the shape of your smokey eye. Go for the half-almond eyeliner smudge by working very close to the lash line on the outer corners only. When you have covered half your lashes from the outside, slightly buff it out for a softer appearance.

Middle lashes are the key area

Mascara can literally make or break your look! But it is important to be strategic with the application. Once you have curled your lashes, apply a thin coat all over your lashes to lift them up but apply a thicker coat right in the centre. This is a great hack to open your eyes and make them look brighter.

Use a white or nude eyeliner

This is a classic eyeliner trick that will instantly make your eyes appear bigger. Use a cream-based nude or white eyeliner on your waterline to open up your eyes and make them appear brighter. This also helps counter redness in the eyes.

Make use of your highlighter

We all love us some highlighter on the cheekbones, but this little baby also helps to open your eyes like nothing else. Apply a bit to the brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes to give you that bright-eyed effect.
