Groom your brows
If you still haven’t figured out the importance of big brows, it’s about time you did. If you have big eyes, know that the way you do your eyebrows is going to play a crucial role in making your eyes appear smaller. So make sure you drive the attention away from your big eyes by going bold with your brows. Keep a spoolie handy in case you’re going for an eyebrow pencil.

Tightline your eyes
Tightlining has long been one of the most effective techniques to making your eyes look attractive. So what is tightlining? This is when you apply liner or kajal in the inner rims of your upper and lower eyelids. How does it help big eyes, you wonder? Well, tightlining works especially for those of you with big eyes because it lends depth to your eyes thereby making your overtly big eyes appear slightly smaller. Moreover, this is also when your lashes will look fuller and your eyes will look deeper set.

Opt for darker eyeshadow
Apply dark eyeshadow, preferably brown shades on the outer corners of your lids and then slowly blend it inwards. When you apply dark eyeshadow on the outer corners, less light reflects off the surface of the eyelid thereby making your eyelids appear smaller.

Try a cat eye
When you have big eyes, you’re constantly trying to find ways to make them appear more almond-shaped. This is when the cat eye makeup technique comes into play because longer the wing, the more depth it will add to your eyes. So make sure you wear a winged or cat eyeliner instead of lining your eyes simply while doing your makeup. If it’s a night out, you can even go for an exaggerated winged eye!

Apply mascara on the lower lashes
While applying mascara on the upper lashes is just the technique to make your eyes pop or look bigger, you need to apply a curling mascara on the lower lashes for your bulging big eyes to appear smaller. This will decrease lid height and give the illusion of your eyes appearing smaller than they actually are.
