Can I Make my Eyes More Almond Without Surgery?

I have very round eyes and I often use make up to make them appear more almond. Recently I discovered that when I slightly pull the skin around my eyes upwards they appear more almond shaped and exotic, which I like. I was wondering if this would b possible to achieve through Botox? I am only 21 years old so I am really not interested in having anything too dramatic or look "pulled". My worst nightmare is to look like Adrienne Maloof because she appears to have a way over done "cat" look.

Your eyes are beautiful - leave them alone!!

At your age just make sure that you are using good skin care products and sunscreen.

Makeup Will Do The Trick

Your eyes are quite beautiful and clear. I would recommend you not mess with them. A bit of makeup can reshape your eyes to make them more almond shaped.

Agree with Dr Schuster

I agree with Dr Schuster, your eyes are beautiful and you should leave them alone.  Just use make up as you are currently doing and be happy with your naturally beautiful eyes.
