Big beautiful doe-eyes has been a universal beauty ideal since forever. Bigger eyes make you appear youthful, awake and healthy. We weren’t all born with perfect oversized peepers, but with some tips and tricks you can always bless yourself with beautiful wide eyes. Check out these 6 marvellous steps with which you can achieve the Disney Princess doe-eyes.

Use concealer strategically

The whole point of concealing is to hide the discolouration and to get an evened out shade. Most often dark circles can make your eyes look smaller than usual. Choose a shade that's slightly lighter and warmer than your skin tone to brighten and correct any blue or purple undertones. Blend carefully, buffing with your finger or a sponge, working underneath and around the eyes—as well as all over the lids—to get a uniform base. Most importantly, remember to conceal the inner and outer corners of your eyes which tend to look darker. By adding a little light to these areas can instantly bring your eyes forward and emphasise their size.

Brighten your waterline

Lining your waterline with a dark liner is an absolute classic, but it often makes your eyes look about half their size. Lining the lower waterline with a nude liner is the easiest trick of all. For a dramatic effect, you can try a white liner, but it is always preferred to go for a nude one as it looks more natural at the same time gives you the same effect. It is best to carry you liner with you on the go as the liner doesn't last longer on the lower waterline.


Tactical highlighting is best to open up your eyes. Highlighter doesn't just give some life and definition to your cheekbones, but gives your cheeks the needed light and structure. Highlight your brow bone, which will lift your brow, on the inner corners of your eyes to open them up, and on the very centre of the lid to make your eyes pop.

Don't leave out your lower lash line

Most of us have the habit of skipping this step. But adding mascara to your lower lashes will open up the eye for a wide doe-eyed look. Try a brown mascara for a softer look. To level things up a bit, use a coloured mascara. Adding a little eyeliner to the outer corner of your lower lash line will also help to give an elongated look to your eyes. Use a soft brown eyeshadow to smoke it out, which will make the eye look wider. A harsh line can just do the opposite.


Define your crease

Whether you're going all out with smokey eyes, or opting for a natural look, use your eyeshadow to define your crease. Use a fluffy brush to build in the product onto your crease, a light brown shade will just do the trick right. This adds the dimension to your eyes, but it is essential to remember that excess shadow can make your eyelids look dark, which means the eyes will look smaller.

Go for mascara

Apply mascara BOTH on the upper and lower lashes. Brush a thickening coat of the product for more of battle eyelashes. Make an additional swipe near the center of the upper lash line to draw the eyes upward. It is also advisable to use a eyelash curler before applying mascara, to give your lashes some extra length and curl.
