This drawing tutorial will teach you how to draw the female eye. We will demonstrate all the details of drawing female eyes.

First, remember that male eyes and female eyes are almost identical. Drawing female eyes is no different than drawing any other eyes.

However, there are some minor differences that can be transferred onto paper to make your drawing of the female eyes more convincing and real.

Let’s get started with this drawing tutorial to learn how you can draw female eyes.


Step 1

Begin drawing female eyes by drawing a horizontal line. This will help you to not be confused in proportions. The line will pass through the lacrimal caudal caruncles. Next, draw a vertical line to the middle of your face. This will help you not get lost in the proportions.


Step 2

Now, it’s time for the details. Begin by drawing the upper eyelids. Then, draw the eyelids using smooth lines. Don’t forget to show the outline of the lacrimal caruncles. Remember that the distance between your eyes is roughly equal to its width.

Step 3

Next, draw the lower eyelids using the same smooth lines. To avoid being mistaken and get the best outlines, compare the parts of the female eye with each other. This will allow you to identify and correct any mistakes and help you to draw the correct proportions.

Step 4

You can make your eyes appear more realistic and three-dimensional by drawing the volume on paper. Draw the inner contours for the eyelids. You can do this by carefully drawing the inner contours of your eyelids. They should be in line with the outer contours.

Step 5

Smoothly draw the pupils and outline of the iris with smooth lines. The upper eyelids should cover the top of your irises. If you want your gaze to be directed towards yourself, the pupils must be in the middle of the eye.

Step 6

Draw in your lashes by using a lot of short, curvy lines. The outer corners of your eyes should have thicker lashes. Lower lashes should be noticeably shorter and thinner than the upper. Although long eyelashes can be found on both men and women, it is possible to draw them longer.

Step 7

Now it’s time for the female eyes to gain volume and real life. Darken the pupils and irises. Make sure to highlight small areas. Draw folds below and above the eyes. Add shadows by using light hatching. We discussed in detail the structure and drawing of shadows in our article on shadows.

Step 8

The female eyes drawing is now complete. Compare your drawing to the example. You can fix any errors by going back to the previous step. has a long history of providing useful advice that helps to improve the skills of female eye drawing tutorial participants.

You can add more contrast to the shadows of the female eyes, which will give them more volume and expression. Next, draw another pair, but make minor adjustments. You can make the eyes look in a different direction or draw them with a different shape.
