What to do at such times, you ask? Well, the answer lies in these easy tricks to make eyes look bigger and brighter. These tricks are simpleand don't take up too much of one's time and most importantly they are totally effective.
White Eye Shadow/ Liner
This one is super easy and you'll notice the difference instantly. Use soft white eye shadow or liner and apply it on the inner corners of your eyes or a thin line on your lower water line. This trick creates brighter and larger looking eyes by blending with the white areas of your eye. The white colour opens up your eyes instantly and creates the illusion of beautiful doe eyes. Just make sure to be minimal and not overdo the white colour, or your eyes will look more dramatic than desired.

Add Some Wings
When applying eyeliner make sure to cover the entire length of your eyelid right up to the crease of the eyes. Once you get to the crease of your eye, wing out the eyeliner upwards. Here, you can decide what kind of wing you want, a simple flicked wing, or more elaborate ones, it's all up to you. This technique will make your eyes look wider and brighter. Just make sure to maintain the symmetry on both your eyes, or you can end up with eyes that look lopsided.
Create A Distraction
Another way to make your eyes look brighter is by doing absolutely nothing to them. Use little to absolutely no eye makeup. Just leave them natural and let your lips be the distraction. Use a bright coloured lipstick and create full lips. The juxtaposition created by the bright lips and the nude eyes will actually make your eyes look bigger.
