Natural looking blue contacts that don't make your eyes look larger?

I've been looking for contact lenses for my Zack Fair cosplay and I really want a natural blue look. I really love the lenses from Honey Color but they all make your eyes look huge, which is counterproductive when since I need to look manly. Does anyone know of a reliable site that has the best of both worlds (natural looking lenses that don't change the size your eye look)?

My eyes are a green-gray sort of color:

I SWEAR by these. They look very natural and are super comfy. Heck, I was staying at a hotel with friends one con, including a friend of theirs I'd never met, and was wearing them the day we checked in. Took them out at night and he was shocked.

(There's tons of user photos, too, and I'd offer my own photo evidence but I don't have any good closeups of my eyes in them)

Thank you so so so much! It seems like they'll make my eyes look a little larger, but other than that, they're perfect. I'll be ordering them as soon as I have enough money.

They won't make any notable enlargement. At 14 mm that's an average contact lens diameter. My plain non-colour ones are the same. My 15 mm ones, on the other hand, eesh, might as well put a saucer in my eye.
