Big round eyes can make you look young and bubbly. They mostly achieve this look with the help of eyeliner and eyeshadow. There are different styles of eyeliner you can use. But to get that rounded eye look, you must flick the end of your eyeliner downward, rather than traditionally upward. This gives the eye the illusion of appearing rounder and bigger.

You can add more dimension to your eyes by adding some neutral color to the lids. If you want to add bright colors place it near the eyeliner to make it pop.
