I keep seeing this being done, and it looks horrid.
This.

It's totally possible to make your eye look bigger by leaving a bit of a gap, but when the gap is almost as wide as your actual eye, you're leaving the realm of "cute" and entering "wtf." It reminds me of halloween creepy doll makeup, in a bad way.

Has anyone else noticed this being done or am I alone in thinking it looks terrible?

I agree, I really don't care for that look. I think, done tastefully or done for a photoshoot or as stage makeup, it looks quite nice on girls with smaller, more upturned eyes. When you have larger, rounder eyes, though, it just makes your eyes look sad and, frankly, a bit droopy >w<

I guess that's the disadvantage of doing makeup off tutorials, though- something looking good on a model isn't a guarantee of it looking good on you, even if it's done correctly!

I agree with you. It's much too extreme.

It would look even weirder on my eyes I suppose. Mine are really big already. I'm sort of tempted to do an ita makeup tutorial sort of as an example of what not to do. Mostly because I really want to try all sorts of weird stuff that I've seen done for lolita.

What do they think they're doing? Making their eyes look bigger with white eye shadow?

Geeze, some people.

It's like the white eyeliner on the water line trick, but obviously gone out of control.
I think when it's done this much it looks ridiculous, but I love it in Gal make up when it's done right. You can definitely go too far down like this girl has, though.

Also, her bottom lashes are on upside down which isn't helping.

Exactly. I love it when done ever so slightly, but this is just... no. I didn't notice that about the bottom lashes, but I'm not surprised. neutral

I love that look. I should probably try it out to see if it suits me. I think that style does look best with circle lenses, and those seem scary to me. eek
