    Either someone has a deep interest in eye shapes, is very observant about them, or simply wants to give the most detailed description possible about people's physical appearance.

    小鹿眼 & 铜铃眼 seem to be round eyes? It seems 小鹿眼 have an upward curve on the outer corner as well.
    吊眼 are the kind whose inner corners angle downwards. 龙眼 have a long trailing outer edge thing, kind of like phoenix eyes, I guess?
    Most of these I can't really tell the difference xD

    Edit: you can image search these to find examples, except for 龙眼 cuz you'll just get pictures of longans instead. Just search “龙眼 眼型” instead.

    Edit 2: found a nice, long, detailed Chinese article explaining this: here
    why am I doing this lol Anyway, should explain all your Chinese eye-shape needs

    Ive heard of peach blossom eyes and phoenix eyes. Peach blossom is rounded and phoenix eyes tilt upwards on the end, I guess.
