I am a natural blond with dark brown eyes. I have always wanted to change my eye color or at least lighten them up a bit more. So I am in dire need of some makeup tips on how to enlarge and brighten up my eyes.

Achieving a set of bright and beautiful eyes definitely doesn't require a change of eye color. All you need is some insider tips and the right products. Here are three methods for brightening up brown eyes that I use myself:
  1. Starting off with a good base is the first step to beautiful eyes. Try Benefit's Eye Bright pencil. This light pink pencil is perfect for covering up dark circles, and works well on the inner and outer corners of your eyes. If you aren't into pencils, just dab a little concealer under your eyes and use a light colored shadow in the inner and outer corners -- works like a charm.
  2. Creating the illusion of larger eyes is just a white pencil away. Applying white eyeliner to your bottom eyelid will make your eyes look noticeably larger.
  3. I have been using this secret on my brown eyes for years (thanks to a tip from my Mom). Blue mascara! It may sound crazy, but it works. Benefit makes a great one called BADgal lash, which enhances and brighten your eyes. If spending $20 on mascara gives you the creeps, go to your local drugstore and pick up a tube of royal blue mascara from Maybelline for a fraction of the price. also has more tips for brightening eyes.
