Why You May Want to Rethink Eyeliner Thickness

Sometimes, less is more in opening up the eye.  

Eyeliner is indispensable with the way it can magically bring out the eyes.  However, it can also do the opposite to close in the eye,  if you lay down too heavy a bold black line to encircle the entire eye.  Instead, you can better glam up eyes and make them appear bigger by concentrating on thickening the look of eyelashes over ringing them with the product that may be actually swallowing them up. 

What I suggest doing is to keep the broadest section of that line at the outer corner of the eye where you have the longest and most lashes and gradually thin out toward the inner corner where the lashes are the smallest.  Just remember, the goal is to take the line across from one end of your lashes to where they stop, laying down as much liner in the area in proportion to the lashes there.  This is how you should line both the upper and bottom lashes.

Once you find the proper thickness of eyeliner fitting for your own lashes, you should play up your eye shadow more instead.  This will be even easier since you have opened up your eyes in this beautiful way!
