Begin by applying concealer in a shade that is one level lighter than your skin. Begin with the most interior corner of your eyes to create a nice contour effect.



1 Use concealer:

Begin by applying concealer in a shade that is one level lighter than your skin. Begin with the most interior corner of your eyes to create a nice contour effect. If you are wondering how to spot that area then, it’s usually the area around the inner corner. After you have applied the concealer, let it dry for a minute and then pat with a finger to blend.



2 Even out:

Use an eye shadow primer to even out the tone of your lids. Use both the base and the primer in less quantity for a better effect.



3 Shimmer effect:

Use an eye shadow brush to sweep a light shade with a touch of shimmer from lash lines up to your brow bones. Go for a beige, bone, or taupe as these are the safest colours to choose from.



4 Highlight the creases:

With a tapered contour brush, sweep a medium shadow along your creases. This darkening of the crease will cause the lighter lid to pop, making eyes look wider. Another common trick to make the eyes appear bigger is to apply kajal. However, if you use a charcoal coloured or deep brown kajal, the effect will be even more as it will create a nice contrast.



5 Final touch-up:

Finish by curling lashes and applying mascara. Never over pump your mascara as it will lead to formation of air bubbles in your mascara tube and the effect will be heavy and not the same as desired.
