Small eyes are some of the most strikingly beautiful eyes you will ever see. A few celebrities who have small eyes include Jennifer Hudson, Renee Zellweger, Taylor Swift, Jamie Chung and Nicole Scherzinger. If you have eyes like this too, then you know what a struggle it can be to apply eye makeup. Not all makeup techniques work with small eyes and if you're not careful, you can end up looking like you have itty-bitty, beady eyes. Here are a few tips to enhance your stunning small eyes.

  • Use light, pale eye shadows, like bone, taupe, heather and soft white, to make eyes appear bigger and more open. Avoid real dark eye shadows, because they make eyes look a lot smaller and closed up.

  • Shimmery eye shadows will reflect light, making eyes appear even bigger.

  • Highlight your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes with a light or shimmery eye shadow to make your eyes look more open and awake.

  • Blend darker shades of eye shadows on the outer corners of the eye to make your eye color really pop.

  • Line your upper lash line and extend it slightly past the outer corners of the eye, like a cat eye, to make your eye appear even bigger. Avoid thick strokes of eyeliner as this will make your eyes appear smaller.

  • You can also try slightly smudging your eyeliner, which will help create the illusion of a bigger eye.

  • Tightline your eyes with a white or nude eyeliner instead of black. Tightlining your eyes with black liner will make small eyes look tiny and closed up, while a white or nude liner will open up the eyes.

  • Pump up the volume! Make your eyes appear even bigger by curling your lashes and apply two coats of mascara, focusing on the middle and the outer eyelashes.

  • Consider applying false lashes or lash extensions to the outer two-thirds of the eyes. This will help give the illusion that you have big, beautiful eyes.

Have you heard of the Ancient Chinese face reading principles? The main idea behind it is that certain facial characteristics are linked to certain personality traits. Those with small eyes are said to be detail-oriented observers. They tend to be private perfectionists, so it may take awhile to get to know people with small eyes.

Small eyes are alluring and seductive. Be proud of your stunning, small eyes! Now that you are empowered with the knowledge you need to enhance your beautiful peepers, all you need to do is practice.
