What Makes a Person’s Eyes Attractive?

The eyes are a complex feature of the face, but they also happen to be one of the most important for determining how attractive a person is. Not many people can determine what exactly distinguishes good-looking eyes from not-so-good-looking ones. In this article, I will discuss the salient parts of the eye which are most important in determining aesthetics.

Although eyebrows play a significant role in determining how attractive eyes are perceived to be, I have excluded them in this article as they are not actually part of the eye itself.

Eye Orbit Structure


Youthful orbits are small and compact. Studies have been conducted that show an increase in aperture width and area in both female and male subjects with age. As we age, the bone of the orbits erodes, causing it to recede away, which leads to a loss of support around the eye. This has devastating effects on the aesthetics of the eye.
