The Trick Gisele Bundchen Uses To Make Her Eyes Look Bigger
May 31, 2016
ExcludeCelebrityBeauty

It's official, I'm trading in the smokey eye for this fun technique: lower lid-shadowing. Especially after seeing Gisele rock it with such a natural vibe. You might think that shadowing your lower lid seems counterintuitive (we're trying to get rid of dark circles here right?). But this trick actually creates the illusion of big, beautiful eyes.






Thank you @hungvanngo @harryjoshhair and @katie_mossman for getting me ready for @fallontonight.

Try skipping lower lining next time and go for a lower-lid shadow. All you need to pull off this look is a small eye shadow brush and/or blending brush and a shadow of your choosing. We love a smokey gray or brown like Gisele is wearing here. Sweep on the color right below your lower lash line, blend and top your lashes with a fresh coat of mascara for insta-sexy.

One of the most important parts of a dewy, fresh makeup look is hydrated skin! To prep, I applied Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentrate. It feels so light but is very moisturizing.(Available on Amazon, Beautylish.com; $28) I also applied Nurturing Force Tropical Tamanu Oil under the eyes, to relieve any puffiness and appearance of dark circles. This product is available on Amazon.com


I took an angled eyeliner brush (favorite is by EcoTools, available at drugstores) and applied Makeup Forever Aqua Brow in #10. I filled them in but didn't give too much definition, just to make them more natural-looking.

I mixed together Makeup Forever HD Foundation in #117 and Mac Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel. Mix these together to give your foundation a nice glow. Once I did that, I applied it to the skin with a Beauty Blender.

It's important to have flawless skin for this look, so you want to cover any blemishes or redness with a concealer that exactly matches your skin tone: not lighter (highlight), not darker (contour.) I used: MAC Studio Conceal & Correct Palette in Medium and used the mid-peach color under her eyes (peach cancels out blue or dark under eye circles), and on any other discoloration and/or blemishes on her face.

I applied a subtle, barely-there shimmer shadow all over (Mac Rice Paper). In the crease, I used Soft Brown by Mac, just to give the eyes some definition. (I used a Mac 217 brush.)

I applied The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighting Powder to the highest points of the face: right above the cheekbones, right on the brow bone, down the bridge of the nose, the cupid's bow (above your top lip), and some near the temples, on the forehead. Be generous with this, but the secret is make sure it' is well blended! Go over everything with a beauty blender to blur any harsh lines. This highlighter looks beautiful on most any skintone, but if you have a much darker complexion, Bobbi Brown's shimmer brick in Bronze will look amazing on you! (I used the brush that came with the highlighter, but a fan or smaller brush will do. Available on Amazon.)
