Women of Ancient Greece preferred to use eye shadow solid line, artificially extending the outer corner, giving the eyes an almond shape.
In India, women are considered ideal Gazelle eyes - large, failed badly, with raised up the outside area.

If the last ritual of the arrow turned women's eyes in the divine, the modern common makeup eyeliner makes them heavenly.
