The Different Types of Eye Shapes

Almond

These eyes are slightly pointed in the outer corner, while being wider in the centre. They have a visible crease in their eyelid and their iris touches the top and lower lid. The perfect Monarchy lash for you is Zara.

Mono-Lidded


Technically called epicanthic folds. There is no visible crease, as the skin is covering the eyelid. The perfect Monarchy lash for you is Elanor.

Examples: Yeji from ITZY, Eva Chen, Kim Go Eun

Hooded

You have a crease in your eyes, but it's hidden beneath the skin when the eye is open. You may also have a prominent brow bone. Your perfect Monarchy lash is Elanor.

Examples: Selena Gomez, Samira Wiley, Tyra Banks

Up-Turned

The outer corner of the eye points higher than the inner corner of the eye. To test, imagine drawing a straight line across your eye. If the outer corner is higher, you have up-tuned eyes. Your perfect Monarchy lash is Elanor.

Examples: Taylor Swift, Zoe Kravitz, Kenall Jenner

Down-Turned

The corner of your eyes are lower than the the inner corner of the eye. Using the same example as Up-Turned eyes, if your imaginary line from inner corner to outer corner does not line up, you most likely have down-turned eyes. Your perfect Monarchy lash is Zara.

Examples: Anne Hathaway, Marilyn Monroe, Charlize Theron
