Do you love eye makeup that makes your eyes stand out? I know I do. Because of that I am always looking for tips to make your eyes stand out. Here’s a list I put together to share with you girls.
1. BLUE EYES

If you want to make your blue eyes stand out start by using the right eye shadow colors. Brown, beige and silver work best, but maybe not altogether.

2. BROWN EYES

Browns eyes can really pop with gold, tan and blue shades of shadow. The color contrast is what helps bring them out.

3. GREEN EYES

Can you guess what colors will make green eyes stand out? Makeup artist suggest using purple, blue, sliver and pink to really emphasis green eyes.

4. SMALL EYES

Sometimes smaller eyes don’t get as much attention, but with the right eyeliner tips you can really make your eyes stand out. You are going to want to line your top lash line from the midpoint of our eye to the outer edge. You can even go beyond the edge just a little. Also line your lower lash line a quarter of the way in. This technique draws attention to the outside of your eyes making them appear larger.

5. BRIGHTEN UP

Are your eyes looking a little dull? Try to brighten them up with a little peach or beige liner along the bottom rim from corner to corner.

6. EYELASHES

My favorite way to make eyes stand out with by curling lashes. If your lashes are straight or point down this technique will really open up your eyes.

7. MASCARA

Mascara has a way of taking your face from boring to vivacious. Black mascara is the key to making your eyes stand out. In my opinion without mascara all other techniques are useless.

8. EVEN BRIGHTER EYES

Another tip to brighten up your eyes is to use a little white shadow on the inside of your eye near the tear ducts. Just this little bit of white can make a huge difference.

9. HIGHLIGHT

Don’t forget to highlight your brow bone. This is the area beneath your eyebrows and above your crease. Add a simple light white or beige shade to the area for full effect.

10. EYEBROWS

While we are on the topic of eyebrows let’s not forget to keep those bad boys tame. Unruly eyebrows can draw attention away from your eyes. If you want your to make your eyes stand out be sure to pluck or wax your brows.

11. DEEP-SET EYES

Do you have deep set eyes? If you do here is little tip. Use a shimmery shadow in the hue appropriate for your eye color. The shimmer will draw your eyes out more.

12. NEUTRAL LIP COLOR

Either you want to draw attention to your eyes or your lips. You can’t do both. That’s just too much drama for one face. If you want to make your eyes stand out wear a neutral lip color.

13. DARK CIRCLES

Conceal dark circles under your eyes. We want people to notice your eyes for good reasons, not because you have bags and look like you haven’t slept in days.

14. BLACK LINER NO-NO

While a heavy black eyeliner circle around your entire eye will attract attention, it’s not the kind of attention we were seeking. Avoid doing this. It makes your eye look really small.

15. FALSE LASHES

I think fake lashes look terrific and with black liner are gorgeous for a night out or a special event. I don’t think the same look is as effective for a run to the grocery store or post office. Save the all that glamour for the right occasion.

16. GLASSES

Do you wear glasses? Don’t worry you can still make your eyes stand out. Add a light concealer underneath your eye all the way to the outer corner. The light color attracts attention and hides in shadow caused by glasses.

17. BIGGER LASHES

If you want to add more drama to your lashes without going all out with faux lashes, trying applying a couple more coats to the outer lashes. It will make them appear thicker and longer.

18. BOTTOM LASHES

Sometimes these poor little guys just get forgotten, but if you really want to make your eyes stand out you will show them a little attention. Don’t go crazy, one or two coats of mascara should be enough.
