Bigger Brighter Eyes



Big bright eyes is something I definitely try to achieve on a daily basis. Not only because they make me look awake - something I struggle with - but they make me look more fresh faced and youthful.  I've come to accept that I'm probably never going to get the recommended number of hours sleep a night! And with my hereatory dark circles,  I turn to makeup. So do I thought I'd share some products that help my eyes look bigger, brighter and more awake!


NYX Above And Beyond Full Coverage Concealer | £5.50

First step to looking awake and having brighter eyes is getting rid of those horrid dark circles! And this concealer is my best friend! Its full coverage and formula means dark circles are banished for the day without creasing or moving. Its yellow toned, which is perfect for counteracting blue tones, which my dark circles are! I then like to go over this with a highlighting concealer.


L'Oréal Lumi Magique concealer | £8.49

If your dark circles aren't that bad this concealer is perfect for brightening up the under eye area. Its lightweight, creamy, easy to blend and doesn't crease! I like to use this over the top of the NYX concealer.



Makeup Geek Eye Shadow Pan | £4.99 each                                                                           POST

A light dusting of a highlighting shadow in the inner corner and brow bone insantly opens up the eye and makes me look more awake. Repuzel and Shimma Shimma are perfect for that. Shimma Shimma is a lovely champagne colour with a frosted finish, that catches the light beautifully. Repunzel is another champagne colour only more peachy in tone.


This is an off white milky shade, that is brilliant for lining the lower water line. Because it's white it instantly make eyes appear bigger and brighter. This lasts around 6 hours in my water line. I also love it as an eye shadow base to.

Essence Big Bright Eyes | £2                                                                                           POST

Another water line brighter that is brilliant! This reminds me of the Benefit Eye Bright pencil but less pink and a fraction of the price! I love this for eye highlighting the brow bone, and inner corner before going in with a powder, to really bring light to those areas.


This is an old favourite! A brilliant nude pencil that works fantastically on the lower water line. This is more under stated than the NYX jumbo pencil, which I prefer, it makes the eyes look bigger in a more natural way. And the formula of this eye liner doesn't smudge or budge on me!

L'Oréal Volume Million Lashes Mascara | £9.99

And lastly, this is no secret to achieving bigger eyes, but a good couple of coats of mascara. This L'Oréal one is great for lengthening and separating the lashes. It has a plastic wand, which I prefer and holds the curl all day.
