What’s the secret to big, bright eyes? The answer might already be in your makeup bag. Over the years, I’ve picked up various tips and tricks to help brighten, illuminate and make my eyes appear bigger than they actually are. Thanks to some hero beauty products, here are seven makeup tips to make small eyes look bigger.
Even with summer (almost) in full swing, I would say I’m pale 95% of the season. The other 5% is when I sporadically decide to get an organic spray tan or use an at-home slow-glow lotion. Searching for cosmetics that pair well with my fair skin is no easy feat. I usually spend an absurd amount of time reading product reviews searching for those special nuggets of information like “looks great for fair and neutral undertones.” It’s like searching for a needle in a haystack. Sometimes I take the risk and buy the product, most of the time… I don’t.
With that in mind, I made my first purchase last week from ColourPop Cosmetics and now I’m hooked! I purchased a variety of makeup products (more on that in a future post) but one of the products I want to share with you is the ColourPop Highlighter Trio, specifically recommended for fair skin tones.
Needless to say, that made my validation process extremely quick and easy.
The $20 trio includes the following shades:
Scrumptious— a pearlized silvery baby pink
Glazed— a tie dye soft ivory gold
Flexitarian— a pearlized intense white champagne
Just based on packaging alone, I’m obsessed with this collection of highlighters. The texture of this ColourPop highlighter trio is unlike anything I’ve ever owned—like satin putty. As someone who has always relied on highlighter sticks, this formula made it easier to blend and build on for an intense glow. I used my fingers to apply on my cheekbone, cupid’s bow and the inner corner of my eyes. The brand recommends on the store page to use a flat synthetic foundation/cheek brush but using my fingers worked really well too.
