Before we tackle our latest pretty project, we thought it best to make sure we’re all on the same page. So welcome back to class, ladies! Today we’re breaking down eye shapes so you know exactly how yours are classified. (Because you can’t determine the best way to beautify them if you don’t take a second to analyze them.) Here are the seven basic types of eye shapes:
Almond: shaped like the beautiful nuts, they turn up slightly at the outside corners and are the most common eye shape.
Close Set: less than the width of an eye between your eyes.
Wide Set: at least the width of one eye between your eyes.
Monolid/Hooded: upper lid isn’t visible when open.
Deep Set: pushed back under a dominant brow bone.
Small Eyes: these thin eyes (while gorgeous) aren’t a dominant feature.
Protruding: the eyes dominate your features by extending forward.
Downturned: outer corners turn slightly downward.
Keep in mind you can fall into more than one category. In the upcoming weeks, we’ll show you specific techniques and tricks for each kind of eye shape… get excited!!
