Q: How can I make my small eyes seem bigger?
Cincinnati-based makeup artist Jeni Lee suggests you try these makeup-application steps to help make your eyes pop. Get more eye makeup tips.
1. Apply a matte nude shadow over the entire lid. Try: MAC eye shadow in Orb.
2. Lightly line the upper and lower lids from the inner corner to the outer corner with a soft brown or taupe eye liner. Apply the eyeliner a little heavier on the outside corners. Try: Naturistics Eye Stixx in Sable.
3. Apply another shadow a shade or two darker than the nude (we like Garden Botanika eye shadow in Kava) to your crease and use your finger to blend the color up toward your eyebrow.
4. Finish the look with two coats of black mascara. Try: Estée Lauder Futurist Lash-Extending Mascara.
