Often considered a dark or mysterious eye shape, deep eyes can have a striking look that is difficult to recreate. However, with the right makeup products and tricks of the trade, you can accentuate their beauty for a more alluring look.
To find out, you’ll need to assess the size of the space between your nose and the inside corner of your eyes. This space is called the palpebral fissure length, and it’s measured in millimeters (mm). If it is larger than the width of one of your eyeballs, you have wide-set eyes.
As with most traits, deep set eyes are a result of the interplay of multiple genes. In the case of eye color, there are 46 chromosomes in each parent, and 23 from each parent have genes that code for certain colors.
If your eyes sink into the socket due to changes in fat tissue or muscle weakening, it can cause a sunken appearance under your eyes. This is referred to as hollowing and can make you appear older or more tired.
A dramatic lash curl is the perfect way to enhance your deep set eyes. Try to choose a curl that is as close to your natural eyelash shape as possible to keep the lashes looking natural. If you have a tighter eyelid, a winged liner can also add volume to the upper lashline and make your eyes look thicker.
