In human psychology, the eyes are the first feature we are drawn to from a physical to an emotional level. Playing up and enhancing the eyes may not only make you feel incredible about yourself but can also attract other people’s attention towards you. From this, here are 3 tricks on how to make your eyes pop using makeup.

Using this theory for makeup, it is widely accepted that using your eye colour’s complementary shade as eyeshadow will help them appear brighter and ‘pop’. For example;
As well as this, browns, neutrals and fleshy pinks usually appear beautiful on everyone. For example, Jane Iredale “sweet spot” pure pressed eye shadow triple is a universal palette that will enhance all eye colours.
Eyeliner is a crucial step in helping create depth in the eyes. It can also be a great tool in helping design any eye shape you desire!
To give the illusion of defined, feline eyes, use black kohl to line the waterline and lash line, as well as apply a flick/wing at the outer corners of the eyes.
To create the image of large, doe-like eyes, apply a flesh-toned eyeliner on the waterline and a darker eyeshadow just lining the lower lash line. For a more intense look, substitute the flesh-toned eyeliner for a white one.
Using a blue eyeliner such as Jane Iredale Midnight blue eye pencil is a great way of making a statement as well as complementing brown irises.
It is no surprise that mascara is one of the easiest and most crucial ways in making your eyes pop. Correctly applying mascara can elevate any eyeshadow look, or even used by itself it can enhance any eye colour.
To properly apply mascara, first curl the lashes at the roots, followed by a good quality mascara that will lengthen your lashes to make your eyes appear more open, as well as thicken them to create the illusion of more defined eyes.
For example, our Jane Iredale longest lash thickening and lengthening mascara will do just the trick.
