When it comes to enhancing your natural beauty, false lashes can be a game-changer. However, not all lashes are created equal, and choosing the wrong style for your eye shape can result in a less-than-flattering look. Whether you have deep set, almond, hooded, or monolid eyes, there is a perfect lash style out there for you. But how do you know which one to choose? Worry not! In this guide, we will walk you through the different types of lashes available, and help you determine the best style for your unique eye shape. From wispy and natural to dramatic and bold, with the right lashes, you can transform your look and take your beauty game to the next level.
How do I know what my eye shape is?
Before we dive into the nitty-gritty of selecting the best lashes for your eye shape, it's essential to understand your eye shape. Knowing your eye shape will help you determine the best lash style that will complement your eyes and make them pop. Here are some common eye shapes and their defining features:
~Almond-shaped eyes: Almond-shaped eyes are the most versatile of all eye shapes. They have a slightly upswept outer corner that elongates the eyes and a visible crease on the eyelid.
~Hooded and deep set eyes: Hooded eyes have a crease that is hidden under the brow bone, making the lid appear smaller. The brow bone also protrudes slightly over the lid, giving the illusion of a hood. Deep set eyes are similar but sit a tad deeper in the eye, giving a very prominent brow bone.
~Monolid eyes: Monolid eyes have a flat, smooth eyelid without a visible crease. They also have minimal space between the brow bone and the lash line.
~Upturned eyes: This eye shape is usually almond-like, but there is a slight lift at the outer corner and the bottom lashes turn upward.
~Some people call this eye shape cat eyes
I’ve figured out my eye shape. Now, what lashes should I choose?
Choosing Lashes for Almond-shaped Eyes
If you have almond-shaped eyes, you have the most versatile eye shape when it comes to lashes. You can choose from a wide range of styles, from natural to dramatic. The key is to choose lashes that complement your eye shape without overwhelming it. We recommend the classic #21 for almond eyes.
Choosing Lashes for Deep Set and Hooded Eyes
If you have hooded eyes, you want to choose lashes that will open up the eyes and create a more lifted appearance. The goal is to make the eyes appear more prominent and less hooded. Look for lashes that have a crisscross pattern, as this will help create a more voluminous look. We recommend dream #32 for hooded and dream #31 for deep set eyes.
Choosing Lashes for Upturned Eyes
If you have upturned eyes, you know how they can make you look wide-eyed and alert. However, choosing the right lashes can help you enhance that beautiful feature even more. The goal is to enhance your upturned eyes while also balancing out the rest of your face.
First, consider the length of your natural lashes. If they are already long, go for a lash style that is shorter in length but still has volume. If your natural lashes are shorter, opt for a longer lash style that will open up your eyes and make them appear bigger. We recommend muse #11.
Choosing Lashes for Monolid Eyes
If you have monolid eyes, you want to choose lashes that will create a more defined crease and open up the eyes. The goal is to make the eyes appear larger and more prominent. Look for lashes that have a natural-looking curl and are not too long or too voluminous. We recommend the classic #22.
Selecting the right lashes for your eye shape can be a game-changer when it comes to enhancing your look. By understanding your eye shape and choosing the right lashes, you can create a flattering and natural-looking effect that will elevate your eye game to the next level!
