Green Makeup for Green Eyes…Another big eye look!

Hello there green eyed girls! Or other eye colored beauties! This look looks great with whatever eye color you have and if you are just wanting to use up some green eyeshadow! This look is intense and mystical looking. I had a lot of fun creating this look, and if you want to re-create it on your own eyes keep reading! 🙂

As you can see below, this look is made up of different hues and finishes of green eyeshadows. I used a light gold on my brown bone and inner corner of my eye to open my eyes up and make them look bigger and brighter! I then applied dark mossy green color to the inner corner (above the gold) and the out corner then blended the colors out to look smooth and smokey. I glammed up with look with a dab of gold eyeshadow pigment on the ball of my eye, on top of my lid. This is well will give the appearance of larger eyes, because the light will reflect off of your eyelid.

Here you can see I added some mascara, but skipped the eyeliner. Eyeliner can take away from all the work you put into your shadows on your lid. Besides, kipping the eyeliner can give your look a fresher appeal and enhance the length of your lashes! Using these green eyeshadows, with darks and lights, can connect with your own green eye shade, and make your eyes look greener! My eyes always jump in the intensity of their color when I use green shadows. I used a white eye crayon, as I usually do, on my bottom water line, this really pushes the look and makes your eyes pop and look huge!

I finished the look with my foundation, concealer, and pressed powder to make my skin look pale and flawless. Then I combed my eyebrows and added some matching colored eyeshadow on them in order to fill them in and shape them. I also set them with clear eyebrow gel, which is nice when I don’t want them going anywhere! lol :p I used a red lip liner in a punch color to fill in my lips and then added a clear gloss on top. The light red shade works great for this look, because it is not too bright so it does not compete with the eyes, but the red is a contrasting color of green so they work in a very interesting and pretty combo!

How To Get Bigger and Brighter appearing eyes? TIPS & TRICKS!

Hello darlings! In this blog post I will help you transform your small droopy, tired looking eyes into big beautiful ones! Unfortunately most people, including myself are born with smaller sized eyes and hooded eyes. My eyes are slightly hooded, so most of the time I have to put in the extra effort with my eyeshadows to make sure not only you can see my eyeshadow, but to make my eyes appear larger.

There are so many ways to achieve a wide eyed look. I know we all see women like Mila Kunis…or Ann Hathaway and are like WHY DO I NOT HAVE DOE EYES THAT CAN MAE YOUR HEART MELT?! Or…At least I do this lol. this is where makeup is a magical tool, it can slim down your face and make it appear to lost ten pounds. Makeup can transform someone from shy and awkward feeling to confident and proud. Makeup can achieve anything is pretty much what I am coming to realize.

You guys can see here that I am rocking a wide eyed look! If you look you can see my highlighted brow bone, and inner corner. You can see the brown eyeshadow swept above my natural crease. I also brought up the arch of my eyebrows. I used minimal eyeliner and extended it past my outer eye. As well I packed on the mascara to create larger, brighter, and bigger eyes!

So if you ever find yourself wishing to have bigger eyeballs, eyelids, or brighter eyes then read on for my tips and tricks!

#1) Use brown eyeshadow. If you have lighter skin, than stick to a brown two shades darker than your own. If you have darker skin use an eyeshadow two shades darker as well. Take the eyeshadow and instead of cutting your crease with it, drag a line following right above your crease. Then blend this line in with a fluffy blending brush. Remember not to use a shimmer eyeshadow, because you want this to look natural. Applying eyeshadow and darkening the skin above your natural crease will give your eyes more dimention, but also give the affect of larger eyes, and a larger eyelid. This is an amazing trick for hooded eyes.

This step can lso be repeated on the lower eye, using a sweep of brown shadow under neath makes your eyes pop out more, just blend off any harsh lines.

#2) Use a Highlight. Using a highlight, as well as brown eyeshadows to contour your eyes can make a huge difference int he appearance of your eyes. Highlight with a slightly shimmered white or tan eyeshadow (depending on your skin tone) and apply a light amount on your brow bone, just under your eyebrow. I like to use a white eye crayon, such as Nyx’s in Milk, and line your waterline, and inner corner of your eye. This extends the white of your eyes and creates the illusion of larger eyeballs.

#3) Raise your brows! If your eyebrows are somewhat close to your eyes, it can make them look smaller on your head. When filling in your brows, create a higher arch and bring your brows up! I am not saying draw on fake looking ones, but with a little bit of lift in your arch, it can make a huge difference. Especially with a highlight under your brow bone, because this will draw light onto your eyes and make them stand out greater.

#4) Black Eyeliner. You can use black eyeliner to tight line your top lid to make your eyelashes seem fuller. As well as applying a thin line of black mascara to your inner corner of your eye and create a wing. Winged eyeliner tends to elongate your eyes. On top of this look you can add false eyelashes which also make your eyes appear larger and have fuller lashes.

#5) For my ladies who are desperate for larger eyes, and don’t mind touching their eyeballs! lol You can purchase contacts to wear daily that have a larger iris than your own natural one. You can purchase these online in many different colors and shades. These will basically make you look like your iris is a lot bigger, and your eyes as well. These are pretty interesting and make a huge different, as well as a lot of girls on Youtube are using them.

Some Don’ts:

-If you want bigger looking eyes don’t completely line around your entire eye with black eyeliner…this actually makes your eyes look closed off and smaller.

-Don’t cover your entire lid in black eyeliner…Most of the time if your eyeliner covers your entire eyelid, then it makes it look like you have barely any eyelid at all.

-Do not use dramatic lipstick. I do in the picture above, but because I felt like wearing red lipstick that day. But if you are looking to create a dramatic wide eyed look then go with some nude lips or light glossy ones, so all the attention stays on your eyes!
