Hooded eyes are the eye type that have an extra fold of skin on the outer edge of the eyelid, which hides the crease. Compared to monolids, hooded eyes may have a slight crease visible in the inner corners.
This is a common eye shape among East Asians. This eye shape doesn’t have a visible crease on the eyelid at all.
Almond eyes are shaped like almonds, obviously. They’re oval with pointed ends, slightly elongated.
If your lower lash line is curved upwards at the outer ends of the eyes, you’ve got upturned eyes.
In contrast to upturned eyes, downturned eyes have the lower lash line almost like a straight line without any prominent upward curve.
