The Complete Guide to Understanding (and Improving) Eye Shape

We've all found ourselves getting caught in a TikTok scroll of cosmetic tutorials for the hottest eye makeup trends. We adore them and want to try them all, from subtle smoky eyes to epic cut creases, negative space wings, and more. But occasionally, something simply, even though we diligently follow every step down to the last lash. However, be aware that your technique might not be the issue before you point the finger at unsteady hands or a lack of expertise. In actuality, your eye form may be the deciding factor in everything.

There is no one-size-fits-all method for putting eye makeup. Every eye form, including almond, round, monolid, and others, has its own distinct beauty. Knowing your individual eye shape might help you choose which styles will highlight your eyes the best (so you never have to question your makeup skills again). All set to start? In order to better understand eye shapes and provide cosmetic advice for each, we turned to Merle Norman Cosmetics' Anne Marie Nicolet, and makeup artists Caitlin Wyman, Allie Renee, and Caitlin Wyman.

Discover Your Eye Shape:

1. Look for a mirror.

The good news is that there are only two easy steps to do if you want to figure out what shape your eyes are. "Before you start, it's good to realize you could not simply have one eye shape," advises Nicolet. Identifying the most noticeable aspects around your eyes is crucial. Look directly into a level mirror to evaluate your eye shape, paying attention to how much of your moving lid and crease you can see. Second, visualize a straight line passing across the middle of your eyes. Then, pay attention to where the corners of your eyes land on the line.

2. Search for a noticeable crease.

Look at the upper portion of your eyelid. Your eyes are probably monolids, according to Wyman, if there is no crease to the lid and a bigger lid space below the brow bone. The opposite is a hooded eye, according to Renee: "If there is a crease but it covers all or most of the lid." Consider yourself to have hooded eyes. When the upper lid hangs down somewhat, the natural crease seems veiled, and there is very little apparent lid space between the lash line and crease, according to Wyman, you'll know.

3. Draw an invisible line straight across your eye.

Try this approach if you don't have hooded or monolid eyes. The pupil should be in the centre of a straight line drawn across the eyes, advises Renee. Then, check the outer corners of your eyes to determine if they are pushing upward or downward in relation to the line.

Upturned eyes are those in which, according to Wyman, "the outer corners of eyes are somewhat upturned and are higher than the inner corner of the eye." if the corners rise over the line. Downturned eyes are when the outer corners of the eyes are somewhat lower than the inner corner of the eye. This happens if the corners fall below the line.
