With small eyes, you want to open up and highlight recessed eyes. Something to avoid are dark eyeshadows and eyeliners around your entire eye. This causes them to appear even smaller and closed off. Line only the outer corners of your eyes instead to give a wide-eyed, doll eye effect.
To highlight the eyes, add a light champagne shimmery colour on the inner corners of your eyes. This will make you look much more awake. Also try lining your waterline with a white or nude colour liner to make them eyes pop! :)
