Are you tired of constantly applying winged eyeliner or struggling with complicated eye makeup tutorials just to get the highly-coveted “fox eye” look? What if there was a way to wake up with sultry eyes and effortless glamour? The solution might just have you raising your eyebrows – literally. While Botox is well-known and loved for treating fine lines and wrinkles, it can also create a subtle brow lift that helps you achieve a lifted and elongated eye look, giving you a sultry, cat or fox-like appearance.

What are Fox Eyes?

Referring to a specific angled eye shape with upward-slanting outer corners, the “fox eye” trend got its name from its resemblance to the eyes of a fox. 

Think of celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, or Megan Fox – their eyes have a distinctive almond shape that adds to their overall allure. 

This look has gained popularity over the years, particularly on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, thanks to celebrities, models and influencers, sporting the sultry look.

While the look can be achieved using makeup, or through plastic surgery, neither of which seems quite right. Makeup takes up too much time in your everyday routine, while surgery is an invasive procedure with a long downtime.

However, in between the two options lies the perfect option — a Botox brow lift, a dramatic but not permanent nor invasive method to achieving “fox eyes” with little to no downtime. 

How is Botox Used to Achieve Fox Eyes?

Botox is commonly known for its ability to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, but it can also be used in other cosmetic procedures. 

A brow lift is commonly used to achieve the “fox eye” look. The procedure involves injecting Botox or botulinum toxin into the orbicularis oculi muscle (just under the eyebrow) as well as the corrugators. This allows the targeted muscles to relax and as a result, the main muscle in the forehead will work to pull the brow upwards, creating a lifted foxy look. 

While Botox injections are generally considered safe when performed by a trained professional, there may be some potential risks or side effects, such as bruising or drooping eyelids. It’s crucial to do your research and find a reputable practitioner before undergoing any cosmetic procedure.

The Benefits of Choosing Botox for Fox Eyes

Unlike surgical procedures or intense makeup techniques, Botox for Fox Eyes offers several benefits. It is a non-permanent solution with minimal risks or side effects and can be customised to achieve a natural-looking result, avoiding the “surprised” or frozen look that some may fear. Plus, the results can be adjusted and maintained over time through follow-up appointments. Results will usually last 3 to 6 months. 

Additionally, with regular upkeep, botulinum toxin can help to slow down the natural ageing process. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

Along with regular Botox touch-ups, there are other simple things you can do at home to help accentuate the fox-eye look. For example, shaping your eyebrows differently can drastically change the way your eyes look. To achieve the coveted “fox eyes”, extend the tail of your eyebrow towards your temples when filling your brows in with a pencil. If the tail of your brows naturally tilts more downwards, you can consider shaving the ends off to carve the perfect “fox-eye” brows of your dream.

Another great way to create the illusion of a lifted look is by laminating your eyebrows. Eyebrow lamination pushes your brow hairs upwards and keeps them there, giving your eyes a more open look. Lastly, play with mascara, false lashes, eyelash extensions and liner to create an alluring almond shape that will give your eyes that fox-like effect. Most importantly, have fun experimenting with your new look! The beauty of Botox is that it is not permanent and customisable so enjoy finding what works for you and your unique eye shape. 

In conclusion, Fox Eyes is a popular beauty trend that can be achieved through the use of Botox injections. This procedure offers many benefits compared to other methods and can be personalised for natural-looking results. However, always do your research and consult with a trusted practitioner before considering any cosmetic enhancements.
