The inspiration for this look can be found in Japanese anime characters.
I grew up in Italy watching anime cartoons and always wondered why these Japanese cartoon characters didn't have almond shaped eyes (being from Japan and all), but actually had huge blue eyes!
Like one of my favorite characters, Candy Candy:
But they also are very disproportionated to the rest of her face.
But it's ok, because this is a cartoon and anything is possible in a cartoon.
What could be a bit troubling is the fact that such big eyes are considered more attractive than "normal" sized eyes, as attests the fact that most anime have these big, round eyes.
But what is most troubling is the fact that girls are now trying to replicate this look in real life, through tons of makeup and "unsafe" contact lenses.
Watch this video (10 million views!) and let me know if I've become too conservative now that I am a mother...
