Different types of eyes and what they mean

Almond Eyes.

Almond-shaped eyes have a smaller eyelid and are longer in width than they are round — just like an almond! This eye shape tapers to a point by the tear duct and the outer eye. The outer part of the cornea is generally hidden under the top and bottom lids. There is also an apparent crease.

Almond eyes are considered the most ideal eye shape because you can pretty much pull off any eyeshadow look. And believe me, this is a huge plus! Almond eyes have an oval shape with a slightly upturned outer corner.

Round Eyes.

Those who have round eyes are typically more creative. This is a close relative to the large eyes because emotions play a large part in this personality. With this heightened imagination can come moodiness and impractical thoughts if the emotions are not kept in check.

Monolid Eyes.

A monolid is an eyelid shape that doesn't have a crease. An eye that does have a crease is known as a double eyelid. Monolids are typically a facial feature of East Asian people. However, other races may also have a monolid or an eyelid shape without a crease.

Take a look at the top of your eyelid. “If there is no crease at all, generally this eye shape is considered monolid,” says Renee. On the other hand, “If there is a crease but it covers all or majority of the lid, this is a hooded eye.”

Protruding Eyes.

Bulging eyes, or proptosis, occurs when one or both eyes protrude from the eye sockets due to space taking lesions such as swelling of the muscles, fat, and tissue behind the eye. This causes more of the cornea to be exposed to air, making it more difficult to keep eyes moist and lubricated.

Downturned Eyes.

Downturned eyes are one of the six most common eye shapes (alongside upturned eyes, almond eyes, round eyes, hooded eyes, and monolids). If your eyes are downturned, you have a downward tilt at the outer corners of your eyes, which can make your upper lid look much larger than your bottom lid.
