You have upper eyelid ptosis with a compensatory eyebrow elevation.

The fix for this is surgical.  You need upper eyelid ptosis surgery repair.  Most likely you will need an anterior levator ptosis repair.  The key is your physical examination by an oculoplastic surgeon to assess the eyelids and determine the extend of eyelid function and what eyelid resources you have that are necessary to make the repair.  Once the eyes are more open, typically the eyebrows can relax down.

It is difficult to asses from "selfie" pictures because you are looking slightly down. But it appears you have a condition called Ptosis which can repaired by an oculoplastic surgeon. You need a consultation in person to decide the best technique for repairing the problem.
