Hi,
What does tilted eyes mean? I've seen it in some books coming as: "strangely tilted eyes" or "slightly tilted eyes"? Is it like almond eyes?
example:
"While John had said her hair was the color of honey fresh from a beehive and her slightly tilted eyes when laughing sparkled like dewdrops on spring green blades of grass, she had a hard time believing that now."

    "Tilted eyes" is not a standard phrase. It just indicates the slight angle of some people's eyes – either up or down, at the outside edge.

    In an earlier thread, someone suggested Audrey Hepburn as an example of someone with slightly tilted eyes.
