Eye Shapes

Finding Your Eye Shape


The average distance between a pair of eyes is the length of one eye.
Some times that distance is shorter – meaning the eyes are spaced closer together.
And other times that distance is wider – meaning the eyes are spaced further apart.

Average Eye Spacing – 
 The eyes are spaces one eye length apart.

Close Set Eyes –
The eyes are spaced closer than one eye length apart.  

Wide Set Eyes –
The eyes are spaced further than one eye length apart.

Average – The eye lid is visual from the inner corner to the outer edge in a smooth curved shape.
Celebrity – Kim Kardashian & Cheryl Cole

Prominent – The eyes can protrude or extend from the face and may cause a crease underneath.
Celebrity – Katy Perry & Mila Kunis

Deep Set – The eyes are set deep in the head the opposite of a prominent shape.
Celebrity – Selena Gomez & Taylor Swift (Taylor’s eyes are also close set) 

Hooded – The eyes are almost hidden by a heavy crease with creates a hood over the lid.

  10. Thnx for all your tips! I should know everything after starting experimenting with make-up when I was 13-14 or so...Now I'm 54 and still learning, because you also want to change things when you get older. I am very blessed with good genes, no Botox needed and don't want to. Still some things change, like the firmness of my skin and eyelids....So always good advice....also for me!

  11. I've average, deep set hooded eyes! Would love any suggestions on how best to work this!

  12. Hi, please advise on what kind of eyes I got, n which is the right way to use the liner

  13. i have hooded wide set eyes, i'm not sure how to apply eyeliner

    1. Use a modified crease cut technique to create the illusion of less hooded eyes.

  14. Average shape, prominent and hooded eyes.

  15. I'm pretty sure I have prominent and droopy eyes. My eyelids are fleshy above the crease, and my eye makeup never seems to look the way I plan.

  16. I have news for you, Selena's eyes are both deep set and close set way worse than Taylor Swifts. I'm no fan of either, but Selena Gomez' features are weird, all her facial features are small, close set and clustered in the center of her face. But she hot n shit, amirite? It's what they all say, but I say she's EXTREMELY average in every way.
