Consider this the “no makeup” makeup look on steroids. Makeup aficionados are picking up techniques that can create the look of larger eyes without looking like they have a ton of makeup on.
TikToker @grandmajojo_s showcased how she does it. Read on for her step-by-step tutorial.
This technique is easy to follow, requiring just a few clever eyeliner and eyelash tricks. We’re here to break down the steps, so you can achieve this captivating eye enhancement!
Step 1: Apply a light eyeshadow base
Start with a soft brown eyeshadow and apply it across your entire eyelid, focusing on the lower part.
To elongate your eye shape, use a slightly darker brown eyeshadow on a small, flat brush. Extend it from the middle of your eye outward.
Step 2: Create a subtle and sultry eyeliner look
With a light brown eyeliner, create a soft, thin wing at the outer corners of your eyes.
Next, dip a small, flat brush into an eyeshadow that matches your eyeliner’s brown shade. Gently blend and soften the eyeliner to give it a seamless appearance.
Step 3: Making the ‘doe eye’ look
When it comes to your lashes, opt for a natural-looking lengthening mascara or use subtle false eyelashes to maintain a natural appearance.
To achieve the larger eye effect, focus on extending your eye shape. Apply small individual sections of false lashes at the outer edge of your eyeliner.
To elongate your eyes at the inner corner, use the same brown eyeshadow shade as your eyeliner on a thin brush and lightly fill in the inner corner gap.
Step 4: Line your lower lashes for a doll-like eye look
For your lower lashes, apply mascara starting from the middle to the outer corner of your eyes.
Then, use a light brown eyeliner to draw fine strokes under your eyes to create the illusion of lower lashes.
Using a light brown pencil liner, draw a new lash line to connect the drawn-on lashes.
Step 5: Enhancing the aegyosal with highlights and contouring
To complete the look, apply a touch of concealer to fill the gap between the outer edge of your eye near the waterline, and the newly drawn lash line. Carefully blend it out.
Lastly, use a light brown pencil liner to contour your “aegyosal” (under-eye puffiness) to accentuate your eyes and make them appear larger.
There you have it! This technique is perfect for days when you want a lighter eyeshadow look that still leaves you looking stunning!
