How to Make Your Eyes Bigger in Photos

by Team Facetune / July 4, 2021

Have you ever taken a photo and you’ve got a really huge smile, but somehow your eyes have disappeared? It happens all the time. When you’re in the moment and laughing or smiling, your eyes are either closed, half-closed, or in the middle of blinking.

The most annoying is when you take a group photo, and everyone else looks great, and you are in the middle of blinking and look like you’re about to sneeze. Of course, that’s the photo everyone wants to put on Instagram. And you look like crap.

Eyes are so important, and it sucks when everything else looks great, and your eye is doing something weird. It can really ruin a photo. Apart from your smile, anytime someone looks at a picture, they look at your eyes. They are the window to your soul! So you better make them good!

Well, a few quick tweaks on your trusty Facetune 2 app, and you’ll be uploading a photo where everyone has their eyes open. It’s super easy to make just a few tweaks and make sure your eyes are wide open (not in a creepy way!).

Step 1 – Pick your photo and open it in Facetune2 selfie editor app.

Step 2 – Head to the Face option in the main menu and then select the Eyes option.

Step 3 – Here, you can use all the awesome tools to slightly adjust your eyes and get them into the perfect shape and size. The Size tool can be used to increase the overall size of your eye. Use the slider to increase or decrease both your eyes and then use the Width and Height tool to improve the different aspects of your eyes. The Height tool is super helpful if you are squinting or have your eyes half-closed.

Step 4 – Making your eyes whiter can also help make them look larger and draw attention to them. In the main menu, use the Retouch function to select the Whiten tool. Next, brush your fingers over each of your eyes in turn, and then use the slider to make them brighter. You can also use the details tool to bring your eyes into focus.
