2. Cover your eyelid with white eye shadow

If you want your eyes to appear bigger, you can easily use white eye shadow all over the eyelid. It will not only make your eyes stand out, but will also enhance the darker colors you used on top of it.

3. Apply the color

After you have evenly spread the white on your eyelid, you can choose a preferable darker color to put on the crease. Brown is an all time favorite and it never gets old. It is best of you apply the darker color from the middle of the crease to the outer corner which will not hide the white eye shadow. It should appear as an extended triangle across your crease. If you are not using an eye shadow brush, you can simply use a slightly damp Q-tip.
