Also known as an epicanthic fold, a monolid is a skin fold on the upper eyelid that makes it appear that there’s no visible crease line below your brow area (hence the name—it presents itself as a “single eyelid” rather than a double eyelid). They are typically a facial feature of East Asian people. However, other races may also have monolids or an eyelid shape without crease!
For decades, eyelid surgery has been popular among East Asians across the globe. Anecdotal reports even suggest some children have surgery to create an eyelid crease as young as elementary school! However, the tide is changing in the East Asian community and in the beauty community, particulary in Korean showbiz. A lot more stars are embracing their monolid eyes and the unique look and appearance that comes with them!
