10 Ways Eyeliner Can Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Line bottom lash line from the outer corner halfway inward with a dark neutral colo

Line the inner rim of the lower lid with a flesh-toned pencil like NYX Faux Whites Eye Brightener in Linen to give the illusion that the whites of your eyes are rounder.

Apply Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara to your upper and lower lashes.

Less Liner

Line bottom lash line from the outer corner halfway inward with a dark neutral color. Stay as close as possible to the lashline. Try NYX Faux Blacks Eyeliner in Obsidian.

Ignore the upper lash line entirely and just apply mascara to bottom and top lashes. Try Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Mascara.

Tip: Skip this if you have round eyes, which look best when the top lash line is darker and thicker.

Upturned Ends

Draw a super-skinny strip of black liquid liner along the base of your upper lashes. Stay as close to the lash line as possible. Try the L’Oréal Telescopic Liquid Eyeliner for this step.

When you get to the end, flick up and out to make the eyes appear larger.

Halfway Haute

Using black liner, start at the center of the top lash line and draw out, making it thicker at the outer corners.  The thickness makes it look like your eye shape extends to where the liner is. Try Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Proliner in Obsidian Black.

Use a soft shadow brush to smudge and soften the line slightly.

Bright Lights

Use a navy or aqua liner across the entire upper lash line (both colors make the whites of eyes looks whiter). The L’Oréal Never Fail Infallible Pro Eyeliner in Navy works perfectly for this step.

Curl lashes and apply three coats of black mascara to top lashes only. Add the L’Oréal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara to finish off the look.

Lighten Up

Color your waterline with white eye pencil to instantly open them up with the NYX  Professional Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk.

Dab a bit of pearly highlighter on the inner corners of eyes and underneath brow bone, the YSL Touche Éclat Glow Shot Highlighter is a great go-to for this step.

Curl lashes and apply two coats of the L’Oréal Paris Feline Noir Washable Mascara.

Tip: This look works on smaller eyes only if you add dark liner to the upper lashline. Otherwise, it doesn’t create enough depth to make eyes appear larger.

New Neutrals

Swap dark-brown liner for a brownish gold like Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Bruns Frivole, and black for a grey like L’Oréal Paris Infallible Super Slim in Gray since lighter colors open up the eyes. Line outer third of top lash line to wake up your eyes.

Curl lashes and apply mascara to top lashes only, concentrating on outer third to create major lift.


Line the upper lashline from the center of the eye outward, extending the line just slightly past the corner of your eye (but without drawing upwards at the end, like a traditional cat’s eye). This gives the illusion of wider, almond-shaped eyes.

If drawing one long line is difficult, draw from the outside in with short connected strokes. Gel liner makes it easier to create a clean, smooth line. Try Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black.

Tip: If your eyes are downturned, add in the upward flick at the end to make them look lifted.

Two-Tone Liner

Layer two different colors of eyeliner on the upper lashline to wake eyes up. Start by lining your upper lashline with a dark brown liner.

Draw another line exactly over the brown one using a two-toned liner like the Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Ether.

How to Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Step 1: Do not use black liner on your waterline. This will visually shrink your eye shape.

Step 2: Do not wear dark, matte shadow. Flat and dark colors on the lids will make your eyes recede.

Step 3: Don’t go overboard with your false lashes. Too much of a good thing can be...too much. Heavy lashes on the upper lash line weigh down the eye make it look like it’s closing.

Step 4: Never skip your undereye concealer. Dark circles obviously make you look more tired, but they also make eyes look smaller.
