Has the frantic race towards the finish line (and not to mention, the stress of Christmas shopping) got you looking a little deflated? The easiest way to reverse the signs of fatigue is with makeup - expert makeup artist, Sarah Laidlaw, shares her tips for creating big eyes using just a few products.
Create a highlight
Add a touch to the inner corners of your eyes to make them pop.
Blend it out
Take a clean, soft eyeshadow brush and, in little swirls, blend the outer edges. Don’t forget to extend it a little further to create the look of big eyes.
Add some depth
Create a small ‘v’ shape at the outer corner with tan coloured eyeshadow and softly blend so there’s no line. Add a touch to the outer edge of the lower lash line, too.
Define your eyes
Starting at the roots, apply mascara (like L’Oréal Paris False Lash Sculpt Mascara). Make sure to wiggle the wand at the base of the root to give definition, before sweeping the brush through the lashes.
Finish it off
Feeling game? To really give the illusion of big eyes, apply false lashes.
