As a metaphor, eyelids have been contemplated as “beautiful curtains that hide your emotions and soul.” No wonder why since ages emphasis has been laid on the ornamentation of this curtain which modestly reveals and conceals the most expressive and dramatic element of the face i.e. the eyes. Application of concealers, eyeliners, eyeshadows and many more similar adornment products on the eyelids have been a consistent and undaunted practice of countless women across the globe irrespective of caste, religion, nationality & complexion.
It’s rather hard to believe that till a few years back certain section of women were not that fortunate. They would have to keep scrutinizing their appearances & fiddling around with makeup techniques that claimed to cater to those with monolids.
WHAT ARE MONOLIDS?
Monolids refers to the absence of eyelid crease. The crease which enhances the appearance of eyes, whilst making them more expressive, beautiful and bigger looking; in other words, the presence of eye crease makes the eye and the face look appealing. Approximately 50 present of East & Southeast Asian women is born with a minimal or absent supratarsal eyelid crease (double eyelid). The experts relate such features to the cold & bitter conditions of the Mammoth steppe during the Pleistocene, some 6,00,000 years ago.
Innumerable frustrating and lurid instances have been narrated by similar women when they have slowly dragged the pencil across their closed eyelids, only to discover with open eyes, the line to disappear. It was as if the eyelids swallowed the pigment, altogether.
Apart from the aesthetic demeanour; at times, certain underlying functional factors can be more crucial. Sometimes they can have a very narrow field of vision.
