      also in my opinion the prettiest almond eyes have a downward lacrimal caruncle, most of these have the straight ones. usually only see them in indo-europeans and asians though. i don’t like emma watson but her eyes are the prettiest shaped here.

        And since when does Beyonce have almond eyes? Her eyes are round. My eyes are more almond shaped that that.

          Hi. I never make comments on posts but I figured it was pertinent. Great point about Cleopatra…not sure I’ve seen authentic photos:-) Now getting on to my real comment…I have almond shaped eyes..by the general public’s standards and a cording to the eye shape “standards” by artists. While your eyes may be more “defined” than hers…Beyonce would fall into our category because of the lack of “white” above or beneath her pupil. Maybe your eyes turn up more?

          Beyonce’s eyes are almond shaped even more than the others being listed on this list in which some of the other’s eyes are not attractive but being called attractive – like Angie Jolie, not attractive.
