Tips to make Bigger and Brighter Eyes

Tips to make Bigger and Brighter Eyes: Part of the fun of makeup is using it to accentuate certain areas of the face. For example, a swipe of contour can create chiselled cheekbones. A little overlining of the lips can create a perfectly plump pout in no time.

And if you’re looking to make your eyes appear more extensive and more open, there are certainly ways to use makeup to do that as well. Creation your eyes look bigger might sound like an impossible task, but there are quick and easy habits to do it within seconds that can become part of your everyday makeup routine.

Bigger and Brighter Eyes

1. Start With Skincare

Before you even begin your makeup routine, you can create brighter eyes using the right skincare products. Look for an eye ointment or under-eye patches that help to depuff, hydrate, and correct dark circles.

The Tula Skincare Eye Feel Astonishing Cooling & Brightening Hydrogel Eye Mask is one of our favourite eye care products for bright, awakened eyes. The under-eye patches use probiotic extracts, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and green coffee caffeine to hydrate, depuff, and wake up the entire eye area—all before you’ve even applied a drop of makeup.


2. Apply False Lashes to the Corners of Eyes Only

According to Alice Dickson, makeup artist and educator at GlamCandy UK, this trick will help eyes look more open. Just apply them to the outer corners only (you can add them to the top and bottom of the lashes if you’d like!).

3. Apply Highlight to the Brow Bone

You can use the eyebrows and brow bones to help sculpt the look you’re after. According to Dickson, applying a highlighter to the brow bone is one way to get the job done. She loves utilizing easy-to-use products like the ICONIC LONDON Glaze Crayons to shape under the brow area easily.

4. Cover Up Dark Circles With Under-Eye Concealer

Dark circles can create the illusion of a shadow around your eye area, making it appear smaller overall. To help make the entire eye area appear brighter and illuminated, use a brightening concealer on the under-eyes to improve the skin tone.

Pro tip: Try applying the concealer in an inverted triangle under your eyes to create a “triangle of light” underneath the eyes. For a full rundown on tackling that technique, read our tutorial on applying concealer.

5. Blend Your Eyeshadow Up to Your Brow

“My most-used technique to make eyes appear bigger is taking eyeshadow very close to the brow,” says makeup artist Lennie Billy. “This gives the illusion that your lid space is bigger and opens the eyes more, especially if you have hooded eyes.”

6. Use Brightening Eyeshadow Shades

Speaking of eyeshadow, your shades can significantly impact how bright and open your eyes look. “When it comes to eyeshadow colours,” Billy says, “using light to medium tone shadows will help your eyes look more open.”

  • Pastel colours
  • Light shimmer shades
  • Light brown shades

For a range of eye-opening eyeshadow options, look for an eyeshadow palette that features variations of the shades above. For example, the complex culture full time Eyeshadow Palette offers a nice mix of brightening neutrals and shimmer shades for a delicate, doe-eyed look.


Is it possible for eyes to get bigger? Your eyes don’t get bigger in middle age. They only grow during childhood and your teens. But the shape of your eyes may change. If you get nearsightedness, or myopia, they may get longer.
