In 2 Easy Steps, Determine Your Eye Shape

When it comes to cosmetics, there are no limits, which is part of what makes it such a fun, creative expression. Creating makeup looks that flatter your individual characteristics, however, necessitates a thorough understanding of your facial anatomy, particularly your eyes.

Knowing your eye shape will help you improve your eye makeup game and develop looks that are very flattering for your unique features. If you’re not sure what you’re dealing with, keep reading to find out how to figure out your eye shape in just two simple steps.

How Do You Know What Eye Shape You Have?
Monoids, round eyes, almond-shaped eyes, downturned eyes, upturned eyes, and hooded eyes are the six common eye forms to consider while identifying which one you have. You must ask yourself two things while assessing your eye shape: Do you have an eyelid crease and can you notice it?

There’s no need to move on to the second question if you responded no to the first. Monoids are characterized by the absence of a fold on the lid. Continue reading if you responded yes to the first question to find out which of the five eye forms you have.

Eyes Round
You have round eyes if your upper eyelid has a noticeable crease and your iris is separated from your top and bottom eyelids by a sliver of white. Round eyes have a lot of eyelid real estate to work with, which means you can achieve elaborate eyeshadow effects like a sliced crease or a halo eye look.
Eyes of Almond
If you have a noticeable crease in your upper eyelid and your iris contacts both the top and bottom of your eyelid, your eye shape is almond. Almond eyes look well with sultry looks like Smokey eyes, so go for a deep, Smokey look to draw attention to your form.

Downcast Eyes
If the outer corners of your eyes turn downward, your eye shape is downturned. If you’re still not sure, visualize a straight line across your eye. Your eyes are downturned if your outer corners turn down beneath the line.

Curl your lashes and use a curling mascara like L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Washable Mascara, Lasting Volume to attract attention upwards and give your eyes a more open appearance.

Eyes turned up
The outer corners of your eyes flick upwards if you have upturned eyes. To try it out, take the same strategy you used while looking for downturned eyes. You’ve got it if your outer corners turn upwards above the line.

Make a winged eyeliner with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eyeliner to accent your eye shape. The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner with angled upwards flicks to emphasize your elevated look even more.

Eyes with Hoods
If you have a crease, your eye form is hooded, but it isn’t noticeable because it is buried beneath a flap of skin. While hooded eyes are more frequent as you get older and your skin loses its suppleness, they can also be present at birth.

Choose a waterproof mascara like the L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara Waterproof, Lightweight to avoid smudging on your top eyelid. It gives a lot of volume to the lashes and remains put all day.
