Japan Word of the Day #128 – Futae Mabuta

Futae Mabuta Double Eyelids

Today’s Word is: Futae Mabuta (二重まぶた)

I’m covering this word today because one of my western friends was not familiar with the idea of futae mabuta (二重まぶた) when it came up in conversation.

Futae mabuta refers to a person’s eyelid that is creased and has infold.
Although there are many beautiful people out there who have single eyelids, but nevertheless, in Japanese culture, double eyelids are still considered a sign of beauty.


Single eyelids, on the other hand, is called hitoe mabuta (一重まぶた).
Many people use special glue to temporarily create double eyelids (Eye Putti is a well-known brand for it).

Regardless of what people say though, everyone can be different, and everyone can be beautiful in their own way!
