Our 6 Top Tips on How to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger and Brighter
Bigger, brighter eyes can really finish off your look, and giving your face the appearance you’re after. But it can be difficult to achieve those big doe-eyes, whether it’s down to dullness, lack of sleep, or even just the products you’re using.
However, making your eyes look brighter and bigger can be simple. To find out how to make your eyes look brighter, just keep reading.
Step 1: Hydrate skin with an eye cream
Start off by hydrating your skin with an eye cream, like our Advanced Génifique Eye Cream, which gives brighter and more youthful-looking eyes. Inspired by microbiome science, the formula is enriched with seven prebiotic and probiotic-derived extracts, as well as hydrating hyaluronic acid.
Just blend a small amount of the cream between your fingertips and sweep under and above the eye contour. Continue with gentle strokes along the crow’s feet, repeating three times, and then tap around the eye contour with your fingertips to help stimulate your skin.
For cooling and depuffing skin, try our Advanced Génifique Light Pearl serum. Formulated with caffeine and arginine, it’s ideal for your morning skincare routine. It instantly cools your skin and targets the effects of eye stressors on the skin around the eye contour.
Step 2: Shape and highlight your brows
Shaping and highlighting your brows with a pencil can go a long way to giving you brighter eyes. Use our Brôw Define Pencil to draw short, upward strokes for defined brows – mimic hairs and fill in sparse areas.
Our pencil comes in three shades to suit your brows, and it’s dual-ended with a retractable tip for ease of use. For a natural eyebrow look, blend your brows with the brush.
Step 3: Lighten your under-eyes
Dab on an illuminating concealer, like our Teint Idole Ultra Wear All Over Concealer, to hide dark circles. Its skin-loving formula gives up to 24-hour hydration and breathable, comfortable coverage that’s suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
Available in 20 shades, our concealer is enriched with pure colour mineral pigments, and it’s easy to apply with the ultra-flexible duo face applicator. Use a lighter shade to highlight and illuminate your eyes, making them brighter.
Step 4: Apply white liner to the lower lash line
For this step, you can use a light-coloured kohl pencil to line the lower waterline – this will instantly brighten and open your eyes. Then, apply a small dot to the inner corner of the eyes for an extra boost.
For a similar effect, you can apply highlighter to your browbone or in the inner corner of the eye. Use our Teint Idole Ultra Wear Highlighting Stick with its lightweight cream-to-powder texture that glides comfortably and is highly concentrated in light-reflecting optics. It’s easy to apply too, so you can even use it on the go.
Step 5: Lash serum
Next, it’s time to use a lash serum. Why not try our Cils Booster Lash Revitalizing Serum? It leaves your lashes feeling conditioned, protected, nourished and stronger, while looking thicker too. Formulated with four amino acids, as well as hyaluronic acid, our serum hydrates and revitalizes your lashes. Plus, it’s suitable for sensitive eyes.
Just apply along the lash line from root to tip twice daily. Then, wait for around 90 seconds before you apply your eye makeup – you’ll be well on your way to getting brighter eyes!
Step 6: Use a lengthening mascara
To give your lashes a boost and open your eyes up, don’t forget to finish them off with a lengthening mascara. Our Lash Idôle Mascara is a non-clumping mascara that gives you volumized lashes for up to 24 hours, as well as a 140% eye-opening effect.
It comes with a mascara wand that has 125 different bristle sizes and 260 micro-bristles, and the product itself has a new gel emulsion formula that provides a feather-light feel and zero clumps.
For bigger lash volume, just hold the wand horizontally near your lashes and apply the mascara in an upward swiping motion for the top lashes and a downward swiping motion for the bottom lashes. To get more fanned-out volume, simply layer as desired.
Follow these steps and you’ll be able to help make your eyes look bigger and brighter, and don’t forget to check out the rest of our eye makeup too.
