Do you have almond eyes?
Well LUCKY YOU!
Not to play favorites (every eye shape is equally unique and beautiful), but amongst industry pro MUAs, almond eye shapes are ideal because they are the most universal shape and can really play them up with makeup and lashes.
Let’s dive deeper into this feminine and charming eye shape!
How to Know if You Have 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. And the outer part of the cornea is generally hidden under the top and bottom lids.
Some famous faces with almond eyes include: Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Megan Fox and Kendall Jenner.

Pros and Cons of Almond Eyes
Almond eyes have a lot of options when it comes to makeup choices. You can easily add dimension by adding a darker color on the crease and outer corners or open the eyes more with a light shimmer in the inner corner and lid part.
- Just about every lash style looks good on you, it’s more about what makes you feel the most confident.
- Smokey eyes look amazing on you.
- You can pull off a dense, dramatic lash style.
- Eyeliner that’s too thick can make your eyes appear smaller.
...And I’m struggling to think of more cons for almond eye shapes, so I’ll leave it at that.
Lashes for Almond Eyes
When picking a lash style, the decision is truly yours.
To accentuate the shape, we recommend using a flared style to elongate your eyes even more. This look is always sexy, fierce and cat-like. The wing of the lash creates the illusion of a wing even if you don’t draw one on with liner.
If you are trying to achieve a more open-eyed look, we recommend a round style. This will lift the eyes by adding height in the center part.
These are our favorite lashes for almond eyes:
With a defined v shape formation and flare, this style brings the drama, but don’t worry, you can totally handle this!
