How to Determine Eye Shape

1. Sit in front of a mirror in a room with good lighting. A magnifying mirror is not necessary, but it may help you focus on your eyes.

2. Focus on the space between the inside corners of each eye:
Close-set eyes – the space between eyes is shorter than the width of one eye.
Wide-set eyes – the space between eyes is wider than the width of one eye.

3. Close one eye and gently feel for the bone located about half way between your lash line and your brow line. This bone is your brow bone and the dip underneath it is referred to as the “crease.” 

4. Open your eyes and notice the amount of visible eyelid between your lash line and your brow bones
Hooded eyes – if you can’t see any of your eyelid in this section.
Deep-set eyes – if you can see some of your eyelid in the outer corners of your eyes, but this section of eye lid narrows as it gets closer to the inside corners of your eyes.
Standard eyes – if there is an even amount of eyelid along your entire eye.
