There are actually several. To get huge eyes try these tricks: 1. Always curl lashes before applying mascara. 2. Don't forget your bottom lashes. For years I avoided mascara on them until a makeup expert showed me how much mascara on my lower lashes really make my eyes pop. I rarely go without now. 3. Individual false lashes are exotic, gorgeous and can look natural if applied correctly. 4. For a doe-eyed, seductive look try lining your lower lids with a creamy white eyeliner pencil. 5. White liner may sound odd, but it really opens up the eye. You can also try putting it on the inside corner of both your upper and your lower lids. 6. Make sure your brows are manicured. Until you get your brows professionally waxed, tweezed or threaded, you won't realize how much they affect the rest of your face. Cleaning up your brow line of stray hairs, adding a slight arch and filling in sparse spots are key to making eyes look much larger. To keep brows in place, try a clear eyebrow gel like Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara or just spritz a bit of hairspray onto an old toothbrush and brush brows in perfect place. What do you do to keep your eyes looking bigger?

Thanks for all the useful tips for making eyes appear big. To add to what you have already have mentioned, we people in India use "KAJAL" (lamp black) and apply it on upper and lower eye lids. KAJAL is a prescribed eye medicine in ayurveda and is known to clean the eyes and keep them cool.

If you have chinky eyes like Chinese people.. here's the general rule: Light shades maximize, dark shades minimize. Brighten up small eyes by curling your lashes and applying mascara. Don't line your eyes with dark colors like black, brown, or blue you'll only emphasize their smallness. Instead apply one shade (a light, cool pastel is perfect) all over the lids.
