Audrey Hepburn once said that ‘the beauty of a woman can be seen from her eyes’, but the Hollywood star probably wasn’t referring to the puffy red peepers when you roll out of bed. It’s no small feat to attain that big and bright-eyed look, especially when factors like work stress and lack of sleep are ranged against you. As a result, many women are resorting to extremes to attain the much-coveted large windows to the soul. In 2014, double eyelid surgery was the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world, but there’s no need to be so drastic. Youthful looking doe-eyes are just a coat of makeup away.

Audrey Hepburn once said that ‘the beauty of a woman can be seen from her eyes’, but the Hollywood star probably wasn’t referring to the puffy red peepers when you roll out of bed.

1

Prep the lids

For eyes that make a lasting impact, start off with an eyeshadow base that will keep your colours fade-free throughout the day. Apply Dior’s Backstage Eye Prime all over your lids using a single finger to construct a crease-proof canvas for your bright-eyed look.

2

Play with contrast

Faking large eyes is all about light manipulation, specifically creating a chiaroscuro effect with muted and shimmering eyeshadows. Taking the Dior Eye Reviver palette, brush your upper and lower lids with the dark brown hue, extending to the outer corners for an eye-opening look. Dab a little well placed beige shimmer onto the center of your eyelids to create illuminated, three-dimensional peepers.

3

Draw the line

Your eyes may be the window to your soul, but your eyeliner is the frame that embellishes the view. Swipe a precise line of Dior Addict It-Line as close to your lash line as possible to create the illusion of fuller lashes, and flick upwards to form a wing at the outer corner, giving your eyes a lift.

4

Plump the lashes

Mascara is the way to go for magnified eyes, but avoid overdoing it. You don’t want lashes of doll-like proportions. Give your lashes a curl, then use the tip of your mascara wand to apply a light layer of product to your top and bottom lashes, resulting in a youthful, doe-eyed look.

5

Brighten up

To give your eyes an extra pop, apply a light translucent concealer around your eye area and dab a hint of white eyeshadow in the inner corner. And there you have it – luminous eyes ready to dazzle any potential suitor with just a single stare.
