Layering eye liner, lining both the upper and lower lash lines, using black eyeliner on the upper lid and brown on the lower, and blending metallic colors with matte colors are all eye makeup tricks. These tricks make eyes appear bigger, brighter and more interesting while making the makeup application process more simple.
Lining the inside rim of lower eyelids with white liner is an eye makeup trick that brightens eyes and makes them seem wider. Lining the place where the lower and upper lids meet close to the nose with white liner is another eye makeup trick that makes close-set eyes appear wider.
If applying a straight line of eyeliner is difficult, first draw the line shape with an eyeliner pencil and then smudge the line with a brush to make it appear smooth and soft. Another eye makeup tip for eyeliner is to only put eyeliner halfway across the bottom lash to make the eye appear bigger.
Applying mascara on the backside of lashes as well as on the front is an eye makeup tip that helps lashes appear longer and thicker. Place a business card against the back edge of lashes when applying mascara to avoid mistakes.
