The Best Makeup Tips and Tricks for Small Eyes The Best Makeup Tips and Tricks for Small Eyes The Best Makeup Tips and Tricks for Small Eyes

One of the most fun things about the makeup world is trying out trending eye makeup looks. But when it comes to doing makeup for small eyes, it can be a challenge to bring those looks to life. If the people who normally sport the looks you want to emulate have bigger eyes, it may even seem like trendy makeup isn’t for you. But that isn’t the case.

Small eyes are absolutely beautiful, and with a little determination, you can rock pretty much any look you want to. It’s all about knowing the right makeup tips and tricks to make your eyes pop. If you’re ready to tackle the topic of makeup for small eyes, give the following seven tips a shot—we promise they’re super easy!

TIP #1: CONCEAL DARK CIRCLES

Concealer is a makeup essential for good reason. Not only does this product help to blur imperfections, but it also works wonders to lighten and brighten your under-eye area. And if you’ve been tackling dark circles, that’s just one more reason to make concealer your new BFF, especially since a dark under-eye area can detract from the rest of your eye makeup. We love the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer thanks to its blendable formula and easy applicator.

TIP #2: ALWAYS USE A LASH CURLER

When it comes to making your small eyes the star of your makeup look, you’ll want to make sure that your peepers can be clearly seen. And one of the easiest ways to do just that is to use a lash curler. Give your lashes the perfect amount of lift with the help of this beauty staple by gently clamping it at the base of your lashes and walking the curler outward for a complete curve.

Editor’s tip: Ready to give your lashes even more lift? Run warm water (but not too hot!) over your lash curler before using it.

TIP #3: SCULPT YOUR BROWS

Sculpted eyebrows are a great way to frame your face and enhance your features, including your small eyes. So, keeping your brows polished and neat is an absolute must. Grab the L’Oreal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara, which helps to boost volume and set your brows for a long-lasting look. Simply use the wand to brush your brows in short upward strokes, then brush across to set your brows in place.

TIP #4: REACH FOR MAKEUP PRIMER

To ensure your makeup for small eyes goes the distance, turn to eye makeup primer to get the job done. If your eyeshadows are always creasing and smudging, an eye makeup primer will be a lifesaver, helping every application last longer. All out of eye makeup primer? No worries! Simply dab a bit of concealer or foundation on your lids as an alternative.

TIP #5: USE NUDE EYELINER

Do you usually wear dark eyeliner on your waterline? If yes, it’s time to switch things up. Give lining your eyes with a nude pencil a shot, and you’ll be shocked by the difference it makes. Instantly, you’ll look more awake, and your eyes will even look bigger! Try this trick with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Nude.

TIP #6: DON’T APPLY MASCARA ON INNER LASHES

Mascara not only gives your eye makeup a flirty look, but it also helps your eyes stand out, which is the number one goal for small eyes. While you may think that a few swipes of lengthening mascara are a foolproof way to amp up your look, we recommend a small shift in technique. Try coating your lashes with the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara, Lasting Volume, but concentrate the formula on the outer two-thirds of your eyelashes to avoid making your eyes look closed off.

TIP #7: USE MULTIPLE COLORED EYESHADOWS

Not only are colorful makeup looks beautiful and eye-catching, but they also work to give your small eyes extra oomph. Not to mention, using multiple colors adds dimension, which works to give your eyes a highlighted effect. Play with color with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eyeshadow in Avant Garde Azure, Haute Hazel or, Violet Amour.
