Eye Shapes

This visual blog was created to help you determine the shape of your eye. You can watch our technique video below.

1. Mono-lid - Do you have a crease on your eyelid? If not, you have a mono-lid. When using the cat liner technique, use a very thin line as close to the lash line as possible with a small flick on the outer corner that follows the angle of your bottom lash line, upwards.

 

2. Hooded lid - Can you see a visible crease on your eyelid? If not, you have a   hooded lid.  When using the cat liner technique, use a very thin line as close to the lash line as possible with a small flick on the outer corner that follows the angle of your bottom lash line, upwards.

 

3. Round Eyes - If you can see the whites of your eyes all surrounding your iris, you have round eyes. When using the cat liner technique, use a very thin line as close to the lash line as possible tapering to a thicker line on the outer corner that follows the angle of your bottom lash line, upwards.

 

4. Almond Eyes - If you are looking straight ahead and the top and bottom of your iris is hidden by you top and lower lid - you have almond eyes. When using the cat liner technique, follow the lash lined follow the angle of the bottom of your lash line upwards.

 

5. Downturned Eyes - if you imagine a straight line through the center of your eyes, do the outer corners end up below your imaginary line? If yes, you have downturned eyes.  When using the cat liner technique, use a very thin line as close to the lash line as possible. Before you get to the outer corner start drawing your cat angle upwards. If you go right to the end of your lash line your liner will continue to carry your eye in a downward motion. 

 

 

6. Upturned Eyes - If you image a straight line through the center of your eyes and the out corners end up above your imaginary line, you have upturned eyes. Luckily you will have an easy time creating a cat liner wing with this share of eye. We find an angle that is more straight out than angled up is better to balance out the eye shape.
