A pretty well-known trick to open up the eye area that I’ve been using for years is to add a light, shimmery gold or champagne shade to the inner corners of my eyes. It’s pretty, effective, and a really quick extra step to add to any makeup routine. I do this on an almost everyday basis, no matter what other eye makeup I’m wearing.
If I’m going for more of a cream shadow, I’ll use a cream product. I’ll take a bit of product with a fingertip [usually middle], and dab it right on. If I’m using powder shadows, I’ll take a small smudge brush, and apply the highlight in a sideways v motion.
Some of my absolute favorites:
