I can manually hood my eyes - is this normal?

My eyes naturally:













My eyes after I hood them:








Basically I tilt my head town, then I raise my eyebrows and at the same time look up. Then I raise my head again so it's leveled, but keep my eyes in the same position. Increases my eye area by a few points. Only downside is that I can't hold it for too long. Is this normal? Is there any way I could make my eyes hooded permanently?


Here's a video demonstration:

You can get botox to make them permanently stay hooded

Wouldn't that make me lose my expression in my entire face though? Like I wouldn't be able to smile or whatever?

I think most people can do that. The muscle is called the orbicularis oculi, but the layer of fat on top (based on genetics) is what gives the natural hooded eye appearance. If you tense the Orb. Oculi muscle over long term, it would become hypertrophic to an extent. Not sure what effect it would have on the layer fat though, could actually make it worse...

I read on realself that you need ptosis surgery and/or dermal fat grafting to make the eyes hooded. My eyes are unhooded and look worse than yours, and I probably have ptosis AND a lack of fat above my eye. First you should see an ophthalmologist to consider ptosis surgery (that's what I'm doing). Then if you still have a problem you should see a very good plastic surgeon with extensive experience in creating hooded eyes.

while putting vaseline on my brows I've sometimes accidentally rubbed some on my upper eyelid and it becomes clammy/stretchy, hoods it a bit more. I think rubbing vaseline on the upper eyelid + this technique can make for some great pics at the least with the improved eye area. Probably not viable for walking around longterm but extremely good for tinder pics and if you're about to take a group pic that's going on facebook (fucking lol), just don't get caught looking like an aspie

Lmao I do it all the time, especially before seeing a hot girl or when walking in crowded areas. Probably looks aspie af when I perform the motion lmao. Especially cuz I gotta redo it every 20 seconds.
