How To Make Close Set Eyes Look Wider?
Let’s find out the best makeup techniques and the mistakes to achieve wide-set eyes look.
1. Take Care of Your Eyebrows
Well-groomed, well-defined eyebrows play an important role in making the eyes appear wide. Starting to draw them from the bottom can help a lot to make the final part more defined. Just take a pencil and, with a thin liner, lift” it by slightly stretching the outside. It will make your face balanced, and your eyes appear wider and more appealing.
2. Correct Use Of The Mascara
Many girls still do not use the eyelash curler, although it is useful to get fantastic results. Mascara is the must-have in a makeup bag that every girl needs.
Remember that no mascara can ever replace the action of the eyelash curler. The straight and sloping eyelashes certainly don’t help make your eyes look bigger and deeper. After bending your eyelashes, it will be much easier to get a sexy look with mascara. For best results, look upwards and lift your upper eyelid slightly. At this point, start applying mascara from the lash line and slowly go upwards. In this way, the eyelashes will appear longer and thicker. Apply mascara on the lower lashes to better define the look.
3. Use Shimmer and Bright Eyeshades
It is best to use eye shadows with bright shades to get the wide-eye look. So use the shades like ivory, peach, gold, rose gold, champagne color, or with shimmer texture to make them appear wide and bright. To further emphasize the shape, making the makeup more three-dimensional, it is necessary to create a clever play of light and shadow through the cut crease. Then choose a slightly darker eye shadow, for example, a brown or taupe, and carefully blend it slightly above the crease of the eye, in the part of the eye bone. It might be a daunting task if you are an amateur. Don’t fret; just remember these make-up rules that use the primer before applying eye shadow.
4. Turn Your Eyes Into Smoky Eyes
Smoky eyes are certainly one of the most popular makeup techniques from both the beauty addicted and the makeup artist. If you have close-set eyes, turn them into smoky eyes, and we bet you, you won’t regret it. But if you are not a fan of dark hues, you can follow Sarah Jessica Parker. She has close-set eyes, and yet you may have seen her sport fabulous smoky eyes makeup! The secret is to use two eye shadows and blend one light and one darker for a very chic effect. Apply the dark color near the lash line, then switch to the light shade and finally go back to the dark, taking care not to make clear strokes, but blend well.
5. Soft Eye-Liner
If you fear that the eyeliner can weigh down the eye, making it appear smaller, you have probably never tried the soft eye-liner technique. The soft eye-liner is the best method to define the look without weighing it down. Apply the eyeliner along the eyelid from the inside out. The line should be thin and slightly stretched at the end; in this way, not only the eye appears wider, but also, the eyelashes will be thicker.
6. Black Pencil Only To The Outside Of The Lower Eyelid
The black pencil, applied inside the lower line of the eye, has the great advantage of creating a very sensual effect, but unfortunately at the same time, it makes the eyes look smaller. The secret lies in using a black pencil still in the lower eyelid, but applying only in the outer part, in the area of the lower ‘ lash line.’ In this way, the eyes turned out flawless by blending them well with the help of a brush, but not weighed down! Of course, other dark pencils, such as brown, gray, plum, or the like, are also fine.
7. Pencils With Clear Nuances
The makeup for close-set eyes not only makes your eyes look bigger but also makes them bright and less tired. Use pencils of light colors such as ivory, butter, nude tones, and champagne. These shades work wonders when you apply them inside out. The contrast between the light pencil on the inside and the darker one on the outside creates a chic and defined effect, capable of enhancing even the dullest looks.
