How To: Find Out Your Eye Shape…

14 Nov

Hello beauties,

Quick life update coming up (Please skip forward if you don’t give a poo): Tomorrow is non uniform day for me at school which equals drama because non-uniforms days are like fashion shows where we all judge what we are wearing, and personally they cause me drama. As I write this it is almost 5pm and I am still to choose what I want to wear? Do I go leggings and be comfy and casual or go all out? Do I wear my shobs with heels or is that too much? Help very much needed right now! In other news, I got a new Twitter (sobs over my 20 followers) because I felt a bit self conscious talking about blogging in front of all the judging people at school who follow me, so please follow me @HighStreetSpy_ and I’ll follow back. 

Okay, back to topic. Enjoy 🙂

So a few weeks ago I was on admiring all the products I can not afford when I came across an article about eye shapes.(mum says I have way too much time on my hands) It was actually really interesting to find out who your celeb eye double is mostly with a little deliberation with my mum (mine is Miranda Kerr. Yes, I have the eyes of a ex wife of Orlando Bloom/model everyone! Get in.) But also the shape and how to enhance them, so being the kind blogger I am, I had to share them with you in my own, less complicated wording.

Deep Set Eyes (Kim Kardashian Style) 

Firstly, if you think this is you. Congrats now you just need the bum and you are on your way to becoming a Kim Kardashian double. But if you already have the butt. Wow.

eyebrow 1

What it Looks Like: Large eyes set deeper into the skull creating an illusion of a prominent brow bone.

Make Up Tip:Highlight the brow bone to make eyes look more prominent and use waterproof mascara to prevent smudges.


I don’t like the name monolid… It sounds like you only have one eye. Like Mike from Monsters Inc. But it’s a technical term so I’m going with it. But you have eyes like the lovely Lucy Liu.

eyebrow 2

What it Looks Like: A flat eyelid with little to no crease.

Make Up Tip: Always curl eyelashes. Start with darker colours at the lash line and get lighter, further up the eye to help draw attention upwards.

Hooded Eyelids 

You have Blake Lively eyes, you lucky so and so. 

eyebrow 3

What it Looks Like: Eyelids have an extra layer of skin that droops over the crease, causing the lid to appear smaller.

Make Up Tip: Tightly line the top lashes to intensify the lash line as this is the most visible part of the eye. When using crease shadows, be sure to go above and past the crease so the shading is visible.

Protruding Eyes

Nicole Richie is your double. She’s a pretty big deal. Go your eyes. 

eyebrow 4

What it Looks Like: Gives the appearance of extended lids. You can see more of the eyelid than other eye types.

Make Up Tip: Darker colours will make the eyelid appear smaller, so smokey eyes are a good look. Also, heavily lining the upper lash line will again make the space seem smaller.

Upturned Eye

You are married to Brad Pitt (well not literally because this lady is) and have a famous leg, your eyes are like Angelina Jolie. 

eyebrow 5

What it Looks Like: An almond shape that naturally lifts at the outer corner. The lower lid has more emphasis than the top lid.

Make Up Tip: Use dark shadow and line more- so at the outer corners of the bottom lash line to even out the shape.

Down Turned Eye 

Down turned sounds sounds sort of sad, but there’s nothing sad about these beautiful eyes like Katie Holmes. 

eyebrow 6

What it Looks Like: An almond shape that drops at the outer corners.

Make Up Tip: The perfect shape for a cat eye look. Wing eyeliner out and upwards on the top lash line to create symmetry.

Close Set Eyes

It’s the classic, it’s the beautiful Miss Sarah Jessica Parker!

eyebrow 7

What it Looks Like: Less than one eyes width apart from each other.

Make Up Tip: Create the illusion of more space between the eyes by using lighter shadows in the inner corners of the eye. Adding more mascara to the outer, upper lashes will also draw attention outward.

Wide Set Eyes (Also known as me!)

I know, I know, you are so so excited you look like me right? Forget Victoria’s Secret Model Miranda Kerr, you have Maisie eyes. Whooooop! Basically, we have eyes like those sharks do… You know like on the sides of their heads 😉

eyebrow 8

What it Looks Like: More than one eyes width apart from each other.

Make Up Tip: Use black eyeliner on the top and bottom waterlines of the eye, minimising the amount of space seen. When applying mascara, swipe bottom lashes inwards towards the nose.


Hope this post helps you find and enhance your eye shape like I did.

Right I’m off to do some more revision and pick an outfit (hopefully)

Maisie x

    Nice entry!! And I wouldn’t know what to wear on casual day because we never wear school uniforms here in The Netherlands! But I can see how it would be annoying to figure out what to wear when you are free of your uniform 😉
