Monolid makeup tricks that will make your eyes look bigger

For those of us who are not blessed with big doe-shaped eyes, are always on the lookout for mastering eye makeup tricks that will help make them look bigger. If you have mono lids or small eyes, don’t worry, the illusion of big, beautiful eyes is not too far away. From white eyeliner to lash curlers, we reveal the secret makeup tips for small eyes...


Keep your brows in check

Highlight the inner corner

Eyebrows frame your eyes, therefore it is very important that you keep them neat and tidy. Always keep your brows in good shape, because stray hair below the brow will make your eyelid appear smaller, while messy hair at the top will serve as a distraction—so pluck, brush, and fill your brows in.


Be generous with the concealer

Highlight the inner corner

If you have dark circles, your eyes end up looking smaller than they actually are. Therefore use a concealer to cover them up and brighten the area.


Use nude/white eyeliner

Highlight the inner corner

Unlike common belief, black eyeliner actually makes your eyes appear smaller and boxed in. By tracing the bottom waterline with a fleshy coloured eyeliner (think white, nude, or peach), your eyes will instantly look wider and brighter.


Never ditch an eyelash curler

Highlight the inner corner

Perfectly curled, fluttery lashes automatically give the impression of wider, bigger eyes. If your eyelashes are lifted, more of the eye will be seen. For added oomph, heat your eyelash curler with your hair dryer or warm water before using it.

For an instant brightening effect, use a shimmery, nude eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eyes. This will instantly make you look more awake.
