    But why?

  6. Guinea Pig Hamster says:

    I have small eyes that are sort of like an asian eye. My eye color is like a greenish hazel color. I also wear glasses if that helps. I love eyeliner, and I can’t wear eyeshadow because it gets on my glasses, and I love mascara. What brands would be good? My skin is really pale, if that helps too.

  9. Kledbetter99 says:

    I’m Asian, and I have very, very small eyes. I wear glasses which makes them look bigger but soon I’m going to a convention where I’ll be taking them off occasionally. It bothers me because it seems no matter what I do, my eyes are incredibly small.
    Is there any way to make them appear bigger?

  10. Spaced Frehley says:
