4. Try a Cat Eye
Extension is also a great eyeliner quick. This sort of mimics the cat eye look, but it's not quite as dramatic. All you need to do is extend your liner past the corner of your eye and let it curl up a bit. The idea is that it should mimic the curl of your eyelashes. You have to make sure to apply it symmetrically, though, otherwise your face will look a little lopsided.
5. Whiten It Up
Adding white eye makeup can be extremely helpful as well. What you do is use white liner or shadow and place it on the inner corners of your eyes. This creates a lightening effect, and it will make your eyes look bigger. It can also make your eyes look brighter and younger.
6. Cover those Circles
Dark circles can make your eyes look small as well, so one surefire makeup trick for larger eyes is to get rid of them. You can do it with coverup, of course, or you can actually get rid of them. Try cucumbers, or myriad other products that are out on the market right now.
7. Blend, Blend, Blend
Finally, blending is incredibly important. If your eyeliner and eyeshadow is too harsh, then that, too, will make your eyes look smaller than they actually are. Make sure that you soften the lines of your eye makeup. Besides, harsh eyeliner is often too dramatic, and more prone to smearing.
There are likely many more makeup tricks for larger eyes. I should have asked my makeup artist BFF for some of them; he knows things you couldn't even imagine. Since I didn't get that done in time, maybe you can share instead. What are some of your makeup tricks, for eyes or otherwise?
