Beginner’s Guide: How to choose the suitable lashes for your eye shape
False lashes are magic tools and suitable lashes for your eye shape can make your eyes appear more extensive and more attractive. There’s one thing that we all know, but that doesn’t mean that every lash will work for us.
False eyelashes are a great way to achieve the long, fuller, and more beautiful lashes you desire. However, not all fake eyelashes will look good on you. You can match different styles to your eye color and enhance the natural shape of your eyes.
We know it can be not very clear to find the right style, so here is our guide to helping you choose the right pair.

. False Lashes for Round Eyes
If your eyes are large and round, you may be able to see white around your eyes. Also, curled lashes will give you a more dramatic cat-eye shape.
Celebs: Katy Perry, Zooey Deschanel, Nicole Richie
Round eyes can be defined as those who can see your entire iris. To enhance the curve of your upper lid, curly lashes should be used. You should avoid voluminous, large lashes. They can make your eye appear more petite and flatter.
. Almond Eyes
RiRi’s almond-shaped eyes won’t allow you to see white above or below the iris. But, with voluminous lashes, you can achieve a sexy look with any lash.
Queen Bey has almond-shaped eyes. They are slightly pointed at their ends and have a more comprehensive center where the lower and higher lids obscure the curve of her iris. Almond eyes can be described as an oval-shaped eye shape. This makes a lot of lash styles possible. You can show off your eyes’ shape with volume lashes that are evenly placed.
· False Lashes for Hooded Eyes or Small Eyes
Hooded refers to the fact that the fold on your eyelid hides a portion of your lid when your eyes open. Hooded eyes or small eyes are designed to open the eyes as much as possible. The eyes can appear smaller if they have long, thick lashes.
It would help if you opted for lashes that are shorter, natural-looking, and less dramatic. You can create the illusion of depth by having lashes that are slightly longer at the center.
Tip: Always trim your lashes to ensure they fit comfortably in the eyes. Cut from the outer corner because it is usually the longest.
Celebs: Blake Lively and Jennifer Lawrence. Nicole Kidman
Hooded eyes are defined by a prominent eyebrow bone and a crease. The eyelids of hooded eyes cannot be seen when the eye is open. False lashes can make hooded eyes look smaller and pull them down. For a genuinely open eye, use fluttery long lashes that are directly above your pupil.
If your eyes are slightly lower than your brow bone, it’s a good sign because your lashes can bring out the drama. Long, curled lashes will increase the size of your eyes by opening them up. For a more relaxed look, curl your lashes gently.
. False Lashes Monolid Eyes
Monolid refers to the absence of any crease on your eyelid. It is common in Asian ethnicities. Choose fluttery, crisscross lashes that open the eye or shorter, more dramatic ones. For more height and volume, curl your lashes immediately after they have been applied.
Celebs: Eva Chen, Liu Wen
Mono lids are more common among Asian eyes. Mono lids can have heavy tops and fluttery, multilayered lashes to open their eyes.
. Dramatic Look with Lashes
After you’ve chosen the perfect lashes, make sure you properly trim them. Although the false lash band’s length is always longer to accommodate everyone, most people will need to trim any excess for a more comfortable fit.
- Eyelashes to Deepen Set Eyes
Celeb: Natalie Portman
Lady with deep, elegant eyes should highlight their large eyes. It would help if you were looking for longer lashes that curl upwards and away from your eyes. This will prevent unsightly mascara marks on the brown bones.
Understand Your Eye Shape
It is essential to understand your eye shape so that you can choose the most fake eyelashes. To assess the profile of your eyes, take a look in a mirror.
- Do you see the whole of the iris (the colored part around the pupil), or does an obscure lid feature?
- Consider how far your eyes can slant to the sides.
- Finally, check the crease of your eyelids with your eyes closed.
You need to know your eye shape before you can choose your false lashes. With a growing range of falsies available picking the best lashes can be confusing. What should you consider when selecting volume over length? Are fake lashes natural-looking?
