This cannot make your eyes look bigger in size but it can divert the attention of the people from dark circles under the eyes when they look at your eyes. So always remember to conceal the dark circles before you put on any eye makeup.
False eye lashes and Mascara:
Mascara is a makeup item that most of the women use. Applying mascara helps in making your eyes look highlighted and bigger in size. Applying two three coats of mascara is needed. Mascara makes your eye lashes appear thicker, longer and darker. This adds more charm to your eyes. You get waterproof mascara also in the market. If your eye lashes are too thin and short, you can use false eye lashes. When you apply them, concentrate more on the outer two third of the lash line. Thus will make your eyes look bigger in size.

When you apply it on the lower lash line, do not apply it on the inner rim, as this will make your eyes smaller in size. Apply it on the outer side of the lower lash line. Another thing to remember is that you must not apply it up to the tear duct. You can start from the outer corner of the lower lash line and then carry it up to about two third of the lash line. Leave the rest as it is, without applying the eye liner.
