Use concealer strategically: The whole point of concealing is to hide the discolouration and to get an evened out shade. Choose a shade that’s slightly lighter and warmer than your skin tone to brighten and correct any blue or purple undertones. Blend carefully, buffing with your finger or a sponge, working underneath and around the eyes—as well as all over the lids—to get a uniform base. Most importantly, remember to conceal the inner and outer corners of your eyes which tend to look darker.
Brighten your waterline: Lining your waterline with a dark liner is an absolute classic, but it often makes your eyes look about half their size. Lining the lower waterline with a nude liner is the easiest trick of all. For a dramatic effect, you can try a white liner, but it is always preferred to go for a nude one as it looks more natural at the same time gives you the same effect. It is best to carry your liner with you on the go as the liner doesn’t last long on the lower waterline.
Highlight: Tactical highlighting is best to open up your eyes. The highlighter doesn’t just give some life and definition to your cheekbones but gives your cheeks the needed light and structure. Highlight your brow bone, which will lift your brow, on the inner corners of your eyes to open them up, and on the very centre of the lid to make your eyes pop.
Don’t leave out your lower lash line: Adding mascara to your lower lashes will open up the eye for a wide doe-eyed look. Try brown mascara for a softer look. To level things up a bit, use coloured mascara. Adding a little eyeliner to the outer corner of your lower lash line will also help to give an elongated look to your eyes. Use a soft brown eyeshadow to smoke it out, which will make the eye look wider.
Define your crease: Whether you’re going all out with smokey eyes, or opting for a natural look, use your eyeshadow to define your crease. Use a fluffy brush to build in the product onto your crease, a light brown shade will just do the trick right. This adds the dimension to your eyes.
