    I am often asked how to make the eyes look bigger, and there are several ways to do it - either you can open your eyes as much as possible with the help of the contrast between light and dark colors, or you can make a sweep that is faded quite far out so that you sort of "pull out" the gaze in all directions. It is very effective!

    Not all sooting enlarges the eyes, if you stay in a small area around the eyes you will not get the same pulling effect. Dare to put make-up quite far out from the eyelid, both over the crease line and on the underside of the eyes :) And work a lot with the make-up brush so that you get really soft edges.

    And a common misconception is that a dark eyeliner along the waterline reduces the eyes, which is only partially true. If you first paint a line along the waterline and then fade it down to the lower lash line, you actually get a magnifying effect instead, compared to if you only paint one line along the waterline. Dare to brass a little darker under the eyes and you get an enlarging effect, preferably wider in the middle than on the sides.

    Today you get an example of such make-up, which is made with Pixi's super shimmery eyedust shadows ”Fairy Dust”Which are magically beautiful! :)

    1. Eyeshadow primer on the entire eyelid and lower lash line, Pixi Eye Bright Primer
      Light eye shadow in the middle of the eyelid, Pixi Fairy Dust (Gold Dust)
    2. Bronze-copper eyeshadow on the sides of the eyelid, Pixi Fairy Dust (Copper Sheen)
    3. Look straight ahead and mark the globe line with the same eye shadow.
    4. Fade the edges
    5. Apply the same eye shadow also along the lower lash line
    6. Apply the light eye shadow also in the corner of the eye
    7. Green eyeliner along the waterline + down the lower lash line, and thin along the upper lash line, gloMinerals Precise Micro Eyeliner (Teal)
    8. Black mascara on all lashes, Magnetic lash mascara


    Do you understand what I mean by sweeping? It does not have to be a completely black sweep to be effective, as long as you dare to apply shade above the globe line and along the lower lash line (preferably wider in the middle of the lower lash line) you will make your eyes look bigger.

    If you also want your eyes to look open and alert, the light in the middle of the eyelid and in the corner of the eye is a very good idea :)

    Surely you can not but love the green eyeliner? Loooove! It is waterproof and fits like a glove, in addition it is so very easy to paint with as the tip is very thin, that is why the pen is called "micro".
