In a recent video shared on TikTok, the makeup artist explains the genius tip for making your eyes look larger. She starts the video with two different concealer placements on either side of her face.
On one, her concealer is applied on a horizontal line just under her eye, blending downward. “This will give you the reverse dark circle effect. What this means is that it’s going to make this area [of the face] look like it’s protruding out, and this makes your eye appear a lot smaller,” she says.
So now on to the handy trick you came here for: On the second side of her face, she applied the concealer in a vertical line from the corner of the inside of her eye down to about the midshaft of her nose. Additionally, she added a small dab of concealer on the outer corner of her eye. She then blends (using just her fingers) the concealer out and up toward her eye, as well as up and around the corner of the eye. “When you do this, you blend the concealer into the rest of the face and your foundation, and it helps the eye appear bigger and lifted,” she says.
For this option, a dewy liquid or soft creamy option will likely do best. We adore ILIA True Skin Serum Concealer and BeautyCounter Skin Twin Creamy Concealer (but you can also check out this list for our other favorites).
