1. Draw a long curved line like in the picture. Draw a shorter curved line opposite the first one. Add slightly curved lines that go up and down from each of the lines. That’s your basic shape for the future eye. The upper curved line is usually thicker than the lower one. Don’t forget that short line at the end of the upper eyelid. That’s a characteristic trait of all anime eyes.

The anime eyelashes are bigger and thicker than the real eyelashes. You can add small eyelashes along the lower curved line. Draw a thin line slightly higher than the thick lower line you drew at the start. This will add more depth to the eyes.
