Eye colour for Asians

I would like to know what colour to go for, in order to make the most of my dark, Asian eyes. I find them too small, and that using dark makeup only makes them worse.

Personally, I think that Asian eyes look incredible with sky blues, silvery whites and pale, yellow-tinged greens. Eye colour is important when considering makeup, but so is eye-shape and complexion. Always work the colour towards the exterior of your eye, as this will ensure that they look open. You are right about dark colours, they will make your eyes appear smaller, unless you learn how to blend: For dramatic eyes, use a black shadow blended with grey and follow with a pearly white towards the top of your lid. Using eyelash curlers will also give you that doe-eyed look.
