As some commenters have explained, ‘doe eyes’ appears to refer to when your eyes are open wider, and ‘siren eyes’ refers to when they look more narrow, with the doe expression giving a more ‘innocent’ look and the siren expression being more mysterious. Users have been trying out both looks and asking their followers for opinions on which is better.

Some have even been finding videos of their favorite celebrities doing both doe and siren eyes and turning them into viral edits.

This is along with a few users who have been experimenting with different makeup looks to help them easily achieve both siren and doe eyes.

However, the trend has caused some controversy on social media, with some criticizing participants who claim they use ‘doe eyes’ to “manipulate men.” Others have simply described the challenge as “cringy.”

Despite this, plenty of people are continuing to go viral with their attempts, and it looks like it could continue to be popular on TikTok in the future.
