How To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Got 4 hours of sleep, but you need to look like we got 12! Who’s with me? Today we are going to talk about simple tricks on how to make your eyes look BIGGER and BRIGHTER. Biggest tip of them all- avoid lining your eyes all the way around.

Houston beauty blogger Uptown with Elly Brown shares a few easy and simple tricks on How To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger and brighter. See more here!

Overall, my biggest tip to take away from the video below is to avoid using liner all the way around. As you can see, it DRASTICALLY makes a difference. Unless you are going for a bold and smoky eye, I would avoid lining your eyes all the way around.

Instead, try lining the outer corner of your eyes and try using a dark brown instead of black. Also, try the highlighter trick on the inner corner of your eyes! The subtle highlight is just enough to make your eyes pop even more.

Such great tips! This tired mama is always looking for any tips to help me look more refreshed! What’s your favorite highlighter?


Maybe it’s just me but it’s very distracting to have the noises from Liam.


This is very useful tips.
Thanks For Sharing.


Unfortunately the link for the Highlighter is not working. I note from another comment you use the brand Dose of Color; could you please share the shade of Dose of Color that you used in your tutorial? Thanks! BTW you look amazing!
