Simple Make-up tricks to get huge Anime Cartoon eyes


In the past, I have searched the internet for ages on how to create this an Anime Manga Huge Eye Make-up look and just come up with confusion and lots of hard long ways to achieve it. 

There are lots of ways but basically, you need a Make-up artist degree to do them...... Well lucky for me I have been trained in make-up artistry but I am also trained in the attitude of couldn't be bothered to take 2 hours to put some eye make up on 😁😅

So I have taken the 1000's of eyes I have seen and simplified it so anyone with basic make-up skills can get this look. I should have taken photos with each step for a tutorial but I will explain the best way I can below

INSTRUCTIONS on how to become an Anime 2d Character with your make-up

1/ The first step always is to do a base on your face/eyes, either with some foundation, primer or a compressed powder. I use all of them but you don't have to. 

Don't skip this step otherwise, your eyeshadow etc will have nothing to hold to and won't last very long.

2/ Use white eye shadow across your whole lid and up to your brow

3/ Use a silver eye shadow (either matt or shiny whatever you have) on the inner eye part of your lid, and about 1cm above this, not all the way to your brow

4/ Using a charcoal or black eyeshadow blend in corners for depth.

5/ With a white pencil eye-liner draw a thick line under your eye, when you get to the tear-duct keep going about 1cm to your nose, create a point and do a short line to the top of your lid

6/ Get your liquid eye-liner and create a standard top lid line until you get to the corners. At corners create 2 lines which should be in the same flow as your natural eyelashes creating fake long eyelashes. After you do this draws some extra little lines almost have down the line to create an illusion of it being lashes.

7/ Under your eye in the centre draw a line about 5 mm from your bottom eyelid. DO NOT put on your actual lid or inside it, this will close up your eyes and make them look smaller. When you look at the line at a little distance it will create an illusion of the eye being bigger. This is also why you need the white eye-liner as that opens up your eyes.

8/ Still with the liner draw 7 little fake lines going downwards off the mainline.

9/ Apply your Mascara.


Above is a quick picture I drew to explain it a little better. Hope this helps. The trick to the eye-shadow is to BLEND, always blend! No exceptions! My drawn picture does not have it blended well, don't do it like that 

When doing the eye-liner, take your time. If you are not confident in using a liquid you can use a pencil, your lines would not be as sharp though. You can buy liquid eyeliner marker pens now, they are pretty awesome and easy to use.

Like I said you can use these eyes for any Cosplay, Anime, Manga, Cartoon or even for the Lolita look. Have fun with it and let me know how you go. Also, remember this is not meant to look natural, that's why you can get away with the drawn-on lashes, have fun with it and become a 2d character.
