How to Choose Fake Eyelashes for Your Eye Shape

Have you ever been shopping for false eyelashes and wondered what style would be best for you? Or more importantly, why a certain shape would be better than another? Well... we’ve been there, done that, and understand it can be a challenge to say the least. Choosing a lash style starts with personal preference, because that’s what matters the most. If you love a rounded lash, then choose a rounded lash. However, if you really want to get into the nitty gritty of it all and learn what style suits your eye shape best, then you've come to the right place.

Choosing the right lash style for your eye shape

Almond, round, monolid, hooded... these are the most common types of eye shapes that go hand in hand with false eyelashes. With the abundance of different lash brands on the market and thousands of styles to choose from, it can be a tad overwhelming to understand the intricacies of what will look best. To begin, you want to decide on a style based on its shape and compare it to the shape of your eyes. The general rule of thumb is ‘opposites attract’. Therefore, if you have rounded eyes, you might want to choose a winged or flared style, where the length of hair is longest on the outer corner, as that will balance out the circular roundness and elongate the eyes for a more flattering effect. And if you have aalmond shaped eye, you might want to choose a rounded lash where the length of hair is longest in the center, which in turn will give the illusion of opening the eye for a bigger, more awake effect.
