For some time now, it seems like actress Renee Zellweger has become better known for igniting rumors of plastic surgery than for lighting up the big screen. Although the actress hasn’t done a film in several years, she still hangs around Hollywood. At a recent screen in Burbank, California for Long Shot: The Kevin Laue Story, fans had to do a double take when the actress made an appearance with an especially bold forehead.
44-year old Renee Zellweger has battled rumors of plastic surgery before, most recently of breast augmentation after she looked to have lost weight but gained a bust. As she never admitted to having gotten breast implants, her temporary gain could have been a pushup bra, possibly with additional breast inserts.
Then there has been the matter of her ever-shrinking eyes. As Renee has gotten older, her face has somehow become fuller and her eyes noticeably smaller. Most experts attributed this phenomenon to the over zealous use of fillers like Restylane and Juvederm in her face, which made her look fresh and round-faced by caused her eyes to shrink in comparison.
However, her new look is a drastic change. While up until now Renee has been known for her squinty eyes, her new look reveal a wide-eyed look—who knew they were blue?! And a super-smooth, very prominent forehead.
While some may assume that Renee has had an eyelift to get rid of sagging eyelids that caused her eyes to appear smaller, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn tells Radar Online differently.
Dr. Youn believes that Renee hasn’t been under the knife, but has used Botox. He explains that Botox may be preventing Renee’s brows from creating her “trademark look.”
He goes on to say that by relaxing her brows, her eyes are able to appear more open and that only Botox was needed, not the knife.
While Dr. Youn says that Renee’s results were good and that she looks better than ever, many of Renee’s fans begged to differ.
RadarOnline reports online commentators complaining that Renee looks too plastic and has ruined her unique and thus her career.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and Renee does seem to be on hiatus from working in Hollywood, so it is hard to say who is right. However there are ways that people with small eyes can enhance them, without needle or knife.
YouTube is an excellent resource for finding makeup tutorials that give directions on how to enhance small eyes. Curling the eyelashes with an eyelash curler is a good first step as it helps to open up the eyes immediately.
Another good trick is lining the inner lids on both the top and bottom with a white eyeliner pencil, and even smudging a little in the inner corners as well. Be careful to blend so that you don’t end up with a sci-fi look.
Probably the biggest trick of all is to have your eyebrows properly shaped. Thick brows can weigh down small eyes so have your brows professionally shaped with a slight arch to help elevate the brow. And avoid dark colors with small eyes, as they only make them appear smaller. In general, neutral hues are best for enhancingnone
