Yes, that could be one option, but there are other ways to use shadow or pencil and doll up the eyes- large and nice.

Quite in vogue at the moment and super chic to flaunt as well- the thick expressive eyebrows; are a rage across the globe, and low on maintenance too. The brows have to be trimmed well and kept in place at all times – helps with facial complimenting while shaping is on. In doing so, the thick brows would maximize the eye area space- creating an illusion of largeness!

Mix and match
When using two different shades for the eyes; aim at making the eyes stand out. However, don’t use very dark colours; up and down. Lighter colours are preferred and they compliment any shade you choose to apply thereafter. Use lighter shades to compliment the skin tone and to make the eyes look large.
While placement is the focus for eye shadow application, the right colours will sure help make the eyes pop out. However, here is a better way to make the eyes look big- place the eye shadow concentration, bang in the middle of the lash line. Since the middle is the widest, it would place more emphasis on making the eyes look wider than what they naturally are.
Blues and yellows help accentuate the ‘whites’ of our eyes- making the eyes look bright and big. Experiment with the bright colours or cool tones and use a dark pencil to line the eyes- helps make the eyes look heavy and big.
