Systems and methods for eyelid shape estimation are disclosed. In one aspect, after receiving an eye image of an eye (e.g., from an image capture device), an eye pose of the eye in the eye image is determined. From the eye pose, an eyelid shape (of an upper eyelid or a lower eyelid) can be estimated using an eyelid shape mapping model. The eyelid shape mapping model relates the eye pose and the eyelid shape. In another aspect, the eyelid shape mapping model is learned (e.g., using a neural network).
