7 Steps to Beautiful Anime Eyes
By Sandy Tang

Have you ever wanted to learn how to get those beautiful, anime-inspired eyes? With the right steps, it’s easier than you may think with just makeup.

With Animate! Miami and Halloween right around the corner, there are wonderful opportunities to dress up those eyes for any cosplay or costume.

Here is a brief tutorial on how to make your eyes standout:

STEP 1: Base and Primer

Begin with a base of foundation and powder before starting on the eyes. You want to prep the eyes with eyeshadow primer. My favorite is Urban Decay Primer Potion.

STEP 2: Eyeliner Prep

What I find most important is the placement of your eyeliner. You want to extend the liner further than where your eye ends.

STEP 3: Eyeliner Wings


Then draw your wing line to extend the eyes. Doing this will enlarge your eye and make it a nice almond shape.

STEP 4: Complete Eyeliner on Both Sides


Do the same for both sides.

STEP 5: Lower Lash Line

The next important thing is to draw your new lower lash line. You want the line to start about 1-2mm below your natural lash line. It will look funny at first, but in the end it will all come together. This will be the enlarging effect for the eyes.

STEP 6: Add Upper Lashes

Now my favorite part: the lashes. I start with my biggest pair of lashes I have. I'm using House of Lashes in Iconic. They are big and fluttery and look amazing in photos. They are a bit intimidating in person but they are so beautiful in photography.


Here are both of them on.

STEP 7: Add Lower Lashes

Step 8: Finishing Touches

As a nice finishing touch, I suggest using white eyeliner on your lower lash line and it will emphasize the enlargement of the eyes. Circle Lens are also a great bonus because they are colored and enlarge your irises.


Lastly, put on a cute wig to tie the whole look together.

Make sure to practice, practice, practice! I suggest you try applying the makeup in advance of your cosplay event or costume party. It will get easier with time. Most importantly, make sure to have fun! Happy Cosplay and Happy Halloween!
