What Are Almond Eyes?
There are a couple of common misconceptions around almond shaped eyes, so let's get them addressed and out of the way first.
Some people say they are more often seen in certain countries, and others say that the shape is actually really quite rare.
Both of these misconceptions aren’t just a little bit wrong, they’re totally wrong. Almond shaped eyes are actually the most common shape found both in women and men, and they’re not just limited to a couple of countries, this eye shape can be found all across the globe.
People with almond eyes typically have smaller eyelids, which are longer in width, forming an almond or oval shape which touches the eyelid on the bottom and top. The eyelids have a visible crease, with the ends tapering down to the tear duct at the outer point.
How to Tell if Your Eyes are Almond Shaped
If you have almond-shaped eyes, the lids will typically be narrower (with less visible space when they are open or closed), but the actual eye is generally wider than other shapes.
Confused? To put it simply, if you look in the mirror at your eyes, and see a crease when you’re looking at the lids, and your iris touches white on both the top and bottom, and you have a slight upward turn on the outer corners - then you have almond shaped eyes.
We know it can be difficult to get an idea from a description, so if you’re still not sure what we mean, we recommend having a look at pictures of:
- Emma Watson
- Eva Longoria
- Mila Kunis
- Beyoncé Knowles
All these famous celebrities have almond-shaped eyes.

Combining Your False Eyelashes with Cosmetics
Sometimes you might not want to wear makeup, and just keep your falsies as part of a natural look, but other times, you might want to really combine your cosmetics and go all out to look stunning, so we’ve put together some helpful hints and tips to help you make the best of your gorgeous almond-shaped eyes.
Accenting with Eyeliner
As well as being the most common shape, beyond just applying lashes, to further accentuate your fine features, almond eyes are also one of the easiest eyes to apply eyeliner to, and this can be done with either eyeliner pencils or liquid eyeliners.
There are a couple of things to watch out for, especially if you’re aiming to make your eyes standout as some techniques can actually have the opposite effect, and make your eyes look smaller than they are; so for example, you might want to avoid applying your eyeliner along the waterline if you’re using dark shades, and instead, replace it with a lighter or nude shade, to give a wider eye effect.
We highly recommend our favourite two types of eyeliner looks for almond eyes:
The 'cat eye' or the 'winged' look. The cat eye requires you to apply eyeliner to both bottom and top eyelid, whereas the winged look requires just lining your top eyelid.
Both styles include a thick coat of eyeliner when moving towards the outer corner of the eye – this offers a sultry look.
The mid-wing is also another totally complementary style to use that’s nice and easy to apply with either thin or thicker lines that can bring focus and fashionable style to your face with minimal effort.
Eyeshadow for Almond Eyes
Almond eyes really do have a beautiful shape to them, and if you’re looking to highlight this, and give your new false lashes a perfect backdrop, then there are a number of techniques that really work well with the eye shape.
If your goal is to accentuate the shape, start by adding a darker colour on the outer part of the eye, then smudge it beyond the lash line towards the temple. This technique pairs well with fluttering or extension lashes, to create a dreamy, ethereal look.
Or you could go for a high-impact, low-effort approach with a single colour - fill the entire eyelid from lash-line to crease with a single shade, which you can use to create a cat-eye shape (like you would with eyeliner) towards the outer corner.
If you want, you can apply a small amount of the same shade to the lower lash line for an extra edgy look. This technique can make voluminous lashes look extra fierce, and really highlight your eyes as a focal point.
When it comes to your colour choice, heavier darker colours can make your eyes look smaller. To make your eyes look bigger and wider, utilise light colours or nude shades - this can be combined with a pop of brighter colour on the lower crease (beneath the eye) that instantly emphasises the entire shape of the eye.
