Are You Wearing The Right False Eyelashes For Your Eye Shape?

Because not all falsies were created equal.

Wearing false lashes can you give you the longer, fuller eyelashes you’ve always dreamed of, but did you know that certain lashes will look better on you than others? Just like choosing a hairstyle to match your face shape, different false eyelash styles can enhance your natural eyes, or even change the shape of your eyes completely.

Understanding your eye shape will help you work out the best make-up to suit your face, but how do we determine the shape of our eyes? Get a mirror to look at the overall eye and assess its profile.

1.Can you see the whole iris (the coloured bit around the pupil) or is part of it obscured by the lid?

2. Consider if your eyes slant upwards at the sides and how much space rests between them in the middle.

3. Finally, look at the crease of your eyelid and observe if it’s visible with the eyelids open.

Knowing your eye shape is just the first step, now you need to choose your false lashes. With a growing range of falsies available (Eylure alone have over 100 products to choose from), picking the best lashes can be confusing. Should I choose volume over length? Will fake lashes look natural?

These are the questions people.

Avoid a false lash fail by following these rules and you’ll be fluttering a fuller looking lash in no time.

Celeb: Beyoncé

Queen Bey has almond eyes – slightly pointed at the ends, with a wider centre where the curve of the iris is hidden by the upper and lower lids. Almond eyes are the eye equivalent of an oval face shape, so most lash styles look great. Show off the shape of your eyes by adding volume with full lashes that are evenly distributed.

If you can see most of your iris, then you have round eyes. This shape should use curly lashes to lift and enhance the curve of your top lid. Avoid heavy, voluminous lashes that make your eye look smaller and flatter.

Most commonly found among Asian eyes, mono lids (or epicanthic folds as they’re technically termed) are where the skin covers the upper eyelid and no crease is visible. Mono lids can wear top heavy styles and especially fluttery, multi-layered lashes to open the eye.

If the distance between your eyes is shorter than the width of one eye, then your eyes are close set. With this eye shape, leave the inner corners free and concentrate on the outer corners to lengthen and lift eyes outwards.

Hooded eyes have a crease with a prominent brow bone so the eyelid is not clearly visible when the eye is open. The wrong lashes can pull hooded eyes down and make them look small. Try a fluttery mix with long lashes directly above the pupil to really open the eye at the centre.

Ladies with upturned eyes, where the outer corners point higher than the inner corners, are the perfect candidate for a cat eye. No wonder this is one of T-Swift’s fave eye looks. For an easy feline flick in seconds, try a flared half lash in the outer corner.

Celeb: Olivia Palermo

When she’s not giving us serious outfit goals, we’re always looking at what Olivia does with her make-up. With beautifully protruding eyes which recede deeply into the face, eyes like Olivia’s should always be the main event. Enhance their dreamy, romantic nature with a dramatic, feathery false lash like the Mac 35.

Ladies with elegant deep set eyes that sit under the brown bone should accentuate their large eyes. Look for extra length lashes that curl up and away from the eye – this avoids unsightly mascara smudges on the brown bone too.

Your Guide to Natural-Looking False Lashes

Fake lashes are often misunderstood. Many think that all strip lashes look ridiculously thick and long—totally false! What if we told you that a good eye enhancer can solve some of your most pressing eyelash issues and remain completely natural-looking? Read on to discover delicate falsies that look so real, you’ll want to wear them 24/7.

Soft Touch 151 by Ardell, $3.29

It’s a common misconception that adhesive strips pull out your existing hairs upon removal (unless you apply incorrectly, it’s not true). Actually, fake lashes are great for giving your fragile strands a much-needed break from the tugging and pulling associated with mascara removal. Featuring a soft, tapered design, Ardell Soft Touch 151 falsies blend into your real lashes to lengthen and subtly volumize. Application tip: affix your falsies as close to the lash line as possible, then gently (and slowly!) peel to remove.

Soft Touch 150 by Ardell, $3.29

If you have short, drooping, or uneven lashes, Ardell Soft Touch 150 strips provide wispy length that perfectly accentuates your existing strands. These fluttery falsies fill in obvious gaps for lifted volume that looks so authentic you’ll forget you have them on! To ensure that your real and fake lashes mesh together, simply curl your natural strands, apply the false lashes, and seal with a coat of mascara for a long lasting, lightweight hold.

Are Those Real? By Velour Lashes, $29

Looking for an everyday lash that’s glamorous but still delicate? Your search ends now! Designed for daily use, these soft selections deliver long, fluffy separation. Velour’s Are Those Real? distribute cruelty-free hair across a flexible band to create a natural-looking lash pattern with a feather-light feel. Great for transitioning from subtle day eyes to dramatic night looks, they can be worn up to twenty-five times for eyelashes that keep everyone wondering how you always look flawless.

The Extra ‘Oomph’ by Velour, $29

If you’re already blessed with long, thick eyelashes (lucky you!), Velour Extra Oomph provides added fullness and flare for looks that range from understated volume to all-out drama, depending on placement. Apply the halves to the middle of your lash line (top image row) to increase your natural voluptuousness, or, for more glamorous occasions, add the strips to your outer corners (bottom image row) to elongate your peepers for a cat-eye effect.

N°18 by Lashes in a Box, $25

Extensions, meet your strip lash doppelgänger! Lashes in A Box N°18 features ten pairs of feather-light separation for instant lengthy and lifted lashes without spending hours waiting for results. In fact, we personally think these falsies are a more authentic alternative to the ever-popular lash extensions, with less risk for damage to your natural hair in the long run. The set of cruelty-free falsies offers up to five wears per pair so you can enjoy gorgeous strands for weeks on end!
