How To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Concealer isn’t the only way to fake eight hours. Research found that a combo of liner and mascara made eyes look 6 percent bigger. (Not piddly! Eye differences are perceptible at just 5 percent.) To reap max benefits, try these enlightening moves from makeup pro Suzy Gerstein.

Step 1. Lid Eye Shadow

Bright eyes look more awake, so apply a peach hue (it nixes discoloration), such as L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Mono Eye Shadow in Little Beige Dress ($6, lorealparisusa.com), from the lash line to just below the crease.

Step 2. Crease Eye Shadow

Blend a rose-gold shade, like Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Antique Rose ($25, bobbibrowncosmetics.com), into the crease, which will create the illusion of depth, making your eyes look larger.

Bold eyebrows are just minutes away with these 3 ways to fill in your eyebrows:

Step 3. Mascara

Sweep on a lengthener, like Revlon Super Length Mascara ($5, amazon.com), and let it dry. Then apply a second coat to the lashes at the outer corners, focusing on building volume there, which draws the eyes up and apart. (Avoid these 5 mascara mistakes.)

Step 4. Liner

Choose a gel formula, such as Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner ($25, sephora.com), that closely matches the color of your lashes (brown for light hair, black for dark). Draw an ultrathin stroke (sans the winged effect) along the upper lid. Skip liner altogether on the bottom; it minimizes eyes.
