Eyes are probably the single most important trait which determines a male's attractiveness.
Parts of the eye
There are four orbital rims on the eye socket.
- Brow ridge
- Supraorbital margin or supraorbital rim
- Lateral orbital rim
- Infraorbital rim
- Medial orbital rim
It also includes the brow ridge and cheekbones.
The ideal eye is not bulging; it appears deep-set by orbital rim protrusion (for both sexes). However, bulging eyes aren't bad if you have good bone structure surrounding the eyes. One could have, high, forward-projecting cheekbones but still bulging eyes.
Hooded eyes lack a visible upper eyelid crease. Some argue that it's an aesthetic benefit, though it probably doesn't have any significant impact.
Canthal tilt has a significant impact in male judgments of female attractiveness.
Some people, like Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, have shitty profiles, but their above-average eyes make them above-average overall.
