MAKE SMALL EYES SEEM BIG­GER The irony is that small eyes will stand out best when it looks like you’re not wear­ing any eye­liner at all, whereas a thick rim of black all around can drown them out. To start, trace a creamy black pen­cil along your top lids, keeping it as close to the lashes as pos­si­ble. ‘The line should be al­most un­de­tectable so it sim­ply de­fines your lash lines, which helps the lashes look nat­u­rally fuller,’ says Jes­sica Alba’s makeup artist Daniel Martin. Then, swap the black pen­cil for a flesh-toned one and use that to line the in­ner rims of your bot­tom lids. ‘This neu­tral shade tones down any red­ness and at­tracts light to the area, mak­ing your eyes seem bright and open,’ Martin ex­plains.
