What Is My Eye Shape?

Have you ever obsessed over a makeup tutorial, learned all the tips, and followed them to a tee, just to see yourself in the mirror looking like a hot mess? Don’t fret; not every eyeshadow trend  is meant for every eye shape. 

Many trends are not eye shape specific, but some are. Eyelashes are no exception. The proper lash set can glam up your look in an instant. 

Knowing your eye shape is super important to finding the perfect lash for your peepers. The proper lash will open and awaken your eyes, giving you a refreshed just-back-from-vacation vibe, and that all starts with your eye shape. 

What Are the Five Eye Shapes?

The five eye shapes include almond, deep-set, hooded, monolid, and round. Each is beautiful in its own right, and there are specific tricks that you can use to enhance your eye shape even further. 

Your eyes give you your unique look and individual beauty. When you add the right set of Glamnetic magnetic lashes to provide you with the perfect fit and flutter, those peepers will be shining like never before.

Almond Shaped Eyes

Kim Kardashian is famous for fashion, contouring, and her almond eyes. Almond-shaped eyes are just that—shaped just like an almond. They are longer in width than they are around and have small eyelids. The outer and inner corners of the almond-shaped eyes taper to a point.

Another characteristic of almond eyes is the eyelid, which slightly covers the top and bottom of the iris. This eye shape is lucky in that most makeup trends will work well without many adjustments. 

Deep-Set Eyes

Deep-set eyes have a dominant brow bone, and the eye is deeper set into the socket. The upper eyelid appears small because of this. 

Deep-set eyes appear larger and benefit from fun, brightening makeup tricks. Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz have deep-set eyes, so look to them for your makeup inspo.

Hooded Eyes

Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone rock the hooded eye shape. With hooded eyes, the skin below the brow bone hangs down over the crease. This area below the brow will make your upper eyelid appear smaller. 

When your eyes are open, the eyelid crease isn’t visible. Hooded eyes become more prominent as you age. Those with hooded eyes can pull off a long, fluttery lash style with glamourous ease, especially if they concentrate the longer lashes to the outer corner. 


Those of you with monolids will notice that your upper eyelid appears to have one fold or no fold at all. Your eyes may appear smaller and will benefit from a longer lash to amp up the eye size. 

People with monolids can pull off a bold smoky eye brilliantly; lucky you! Awkwafina flaunts the monolid eye shape.

Round Eyes

Round eyes are the largest of all eye shapes. The whites of your eyes can be seen around your iris, and the inner and outer corners don’t pull upward or downward. 

Round eyes give a new meaning to the fun phrase, “eyes wide open,” with their babydoll appearance. Katy Perry is just one of many celebrities with round eyes.
