What are monolid eyes?

Monolid eyes are a type of eye shape where the eyelid covers the entire eye. Monolid eyes are common in East Asian countries, but can be found elsewhere in the world as well.

The anatomy of monolid eyes

Most people think of monolid eyes as being small and close set, but there is a lot of variation in the shape and size of monolid eyes. The key feature of monolid eyes is that they lack a crease, which gives them a more “uniform” appearance.

There are three main parts to the eye: the eyelid, the eyeball, and the orbit (the bony socket that holds the eyeball in place). Monolid eyes typically have smaller orbits than eyes with a crease, which gives them a more “downturned” appearance. The eyelids of monolid eyes also tend to be thicker and less mobile than eyelids with a crease. This can make it more difficult to apply makeup to monolid eyes, as there is less surface area for products to adhere to.

There are two main types of monolid eyes: “single eyelid” and “double eyelid.” Single eyelid monolids have one continuous lid that covers the entire eye. Double eyelid monolids have two separate lids, one that covers the upper half of the eye (the upper lid) and one that covers the lower half of the eye (the lower lid). Most people with monolid eyes have single eyelids, but there is a lot of variation in this trait as well.

Monolid eyes can be found in all shapes and sizes, but they are most common in Asia. People of Asian descent typically have septal areas (the area between the lids) that are shallower than those of other races, which gives their eyes a more “uniform” appearance.

The benefits of monolid eyes

There are many benefits to having monolid eyes. For one, they are much easier to draw than their counterparts (e.g. double eyelids). This is because the absence of a crease means that there is a lot less detail to worry about. As a result, monolid eyes tend to look more ‘natural’ and ‘undrawn’.

Another advantage of monolid eyes is that they are much less likely to suffer from drooping or sagging over time. This is because the skin around the eye area is much firmer and more resilient without a crease. In contrast, double eyelids often suffer from sagging or drooping due to the constant folding and unfolding motion of the eyelid skin.

Monolid eyes also tend to look larger and more open than double eyelids, giving the illusion of wider, brighter eyes. While this may not be a benefit for everyone, many people find that it helps them to look more alert and awake.

In short, monolid eyes have many advantages over double eyelids – they are easier to draw, more resilient, and can give the appearance of larger, brighter eyes. If you are thinking about getting rid of your double eyelids, or simply want to try something different, monolid eyes may be the answer for you!

The challenges of monolid eyes

There are a few challenges when it comes to drawing monolid eyes. Firstly, they tend to have a much flatter shape than eyes with a visible crease. This can make them appear smaller and more slanted. Secondly, because there is no crease, the eyelid appears to wrap around the eye, making it harder to create a defined shape.

However, there are also some advantages to drawing monolid eyes. Because they have a flatter shape, you can be more creative with the eyeliner and shadow without worrying about creating a harsh line. And because there is no crease, you can create a more smoky effect with your eye makeup.

If you want to learn how to draw monolid eyes, here are some tips:

  1. Start by drawing the brows. Monolid eyes tend to have thicker, straighter brows than other eye shapes. So take your time shaping them before moving on to the rest of the eye.
  2. Next, draw the lash line. Again, because monolid eyes have no crease, you can be more liberal with your eyeliner. Feel free to experiment with different colors and thicknesses until you find something you like.
  3. Now it’s time to add some shadow. Using a fluffy brush, apply a light layer of shadow all over the lid. Then use a darker shade in the crease (if you have one) or along the lash line for definition. Finish things off by sweeping a highlight shade under the brow bone and in the inner corner of the eye.
  4. Finally, add some mascara or false lashes for extra drama. And that’s it! You’ve now learned how to draw monolid eyes like a pro!
    The techniques for drawing monolid eyes

There are several ways to draw monolid eyes, but the key is to capture the essence of the eye shape without getting too bogged down in the details. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

Start by drawing a horizontal line across the top of the eye, then add a slightly curved line for the brow.

Next, draw a curved line from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner. Then, add a second curved line underneath, connecting the inner and outer corners again.

Now, fill in the space between these two lines with a third curved line. This will create the basic shape of the monolid eye.

Finally, add some definition by drawing in the lash line and adding some highlight dots just below the brow.

The products for drawing monolid eyes

When it comes to drawing monolid eyes, there are certain products that will make your life a whole lot easier. Here is a list of my top five must-haves when it comes to drawing monolid eyes:

  1. A fine-tipped eyeliner pen: This will help you create clean and precise lines when drawing your monolid eyes. I personally love the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper Black.
  2. A good quality black eyeshadow: This is essential for creating the smoky effect around the eyes. I recommend using a matte black shadow for this purpose.
  3. A fluffy eye shadow brush: This will help you blend the black shadow evenly around the eyes.
  4. A small pointed brush: This is great for creating definition in the inner corners of the eyes.
  5. false lashes (optional): This is completely optional, but if you want to add extra drama to your look, then false lashes are definitely the way to go!
    The conclusion

Monolid eyes are a beautiful and unique feature, but they can be challenging to draw. With a few simple tips, you can learn how to draw monolid eyes that are both realistic and flattering. Start by studying the shape of the eye, then use light and dark pencil strokes to create depth and dimension. Add eyelashes and eyebrows to complete the look. With practice, you’ll be able to draw monolid eyes that are stunning and expressive.
