Trouble Aiming Umnitza Headlights

I can't seem to understand how to fix this. If you look at the pics, the beam pattern seems to go up on a slant on the passenger side. This is both headlights doing this, not just the passenger side one. Moving the up and down gear doesn't solve it. I'm confused as how to fix this. Any help is much appreciated.

Looks like your passenger light is aimed slightly higher. The uptick on the right is by design. This is a nod to European light patterns to help illuminate roadside signs

Everything that you'd want to know about aiming headlights. The slant is by design.

Thanks for the replies

At least I know why they curve up. I'll make both of them even now and be finished.
