Updated: Feb 8, 2021
Finding the perfect lash-mate can be challenging. Trust me, we know! We have been there and done that. But no worries, it happens to all of us. Here, it will be different. You do not have to do it alone. We can help you find your lash-mate or mates, however many you decide to pick!
To make your experience better, we have created a guide to help. I have researched ten different eye shapes that are listed below. We have provided a brief description of each to highlight the features of a lash that suits them best. We have also listed a variety of styles from our boutique you can explore further for purchase. For now, let us begin!
Round eye shapes expose the entire white area of your eye, the sclera, surrounding your iris. Lashes with long or medium extensions, including low volume and density, compliments this shape the best. To achieve a bright and elongated appearance, we recommend lash styles with longer extensions at the outer corners. For a natural look, we offer STELLA, LORI, and O’DARA. For a dramatic look, we have MICHEL'LE, COCO, LOLA, and YARI.
Almond-shaped eyes are longer than they are round. They are narrow at the inner and outer corners of the eyes. They create the illusion or shape of an actual almond. With almond-shaped eyes, the top and bottom lids cover a small portion of the iris, making the eyes appear narrow. Most lash styles work well with this shape, giving you a pool of options. Any lash volume and density will suffice. So, from here, it solely depends on the look you want. For a natural look, we recommend MICHEL’LE, VERA, YARI, STELLA, and LORI. For a dramatic look, we recommend O'DARA, MARCI, NOIRE, PASHA, LOLA, and MAY BELLE.
Monolid eyes have a flat eyelid surface with no crease. The brow bone is typically less prominent. Lash styles with short or medium extensions, including low to moderate volume and density, complements the shape best. We also recommend flared or wispy styles with longer extensions at the end to give the eye a natural lift. For a natural look, we offer STELLA, YARI, LORI, VERA, and REINE. For a dramatic look, we have O’DARA, BELLA, LOLA, and MICHEL’LE.
Hooded eyes feature extra skin that conceals the crease of the eye. The excess skin from under the brow bone tends to cover the crease, making it appear smaller. Tapered lashes with longer extensions in the center work best for this shape. An equally full lash with moderate volume and density also complements this shape. For a natural look, we recommend O’DARA, MICHEL’LE, YARI, VERA, and LORI. For a dramatic look, we recommend O'DARA, NOIRE, MARCI, and BELLA.
Downturned eyes are slightly tilted downward at the outermost corner of each eye. It makes the inner corner of each eye appear higher than the outer corner. The angle of it will also create a round shape on the bottom lid. Lashes with shorter extensions in the corners and longer extensions in the middle work best with this shape. Styles with low to moderate lash volume and density will look great with this shape. For a natural look, we offer YARI, VERA, PASHA, MICHEL’LE, and LORI. For a dramatic look, we offer LIV, MARCI, O'DARA, BELLA, and COCO.
Upturned eyes are slightly tilted upward at the outermost corner of each eye. It gives the illusion of a naturally lifted lid. Lashes with long extensions at the outer corners work best with this shape. Any amount of volume and density will do. For a natural look, we offer LORI, MICHEL’LE, ALAINA, and O’DARA. For a dramatic look, we offer O'DARA, LOLA, MAY BELLE, and COCO.
DEEP SET EYES
Deep-set eyes rest further into the eye socket. It creates the illusion of a prominent brow bone. Lashes with medium extensions, including low to moderate volume and density, compliments this shape the best. For a natural look, we offer MICHEL’LE, O’DARA, VERA, and LORI. For a dramatic look, we offer O'DARA, ALAINA, MARCI, and MAY BELLE.
Prominent eyes appear larger and more defined. They create the illusion of projected lids, for the eyes rest more on the outside of the eye socket. We recommend natural-looking lashes with tapered extensions, including low volume and density. Lashes with short or medium extensions will look great with this shape. For a natural look, we offer MICHEL’LE and LOLA, and LORI. For a dramatic look, we offer O’DARA, MARCI, and MAY BELLE.
Close-set eyes appear closer together. The space between your eyes will be less than the length of one of your eyes. Lashes with short or medium extensions, including a flared or cat-eye effect, accentuates this shape the best. It helps to lift and elongated the eyes. We recommend lash styles that have low volume and density to prevent the illusion of longer eyes. For a natural effect, we offer LORI, STELLA, PASHA, and YARI. For a dramatic look, we offer MICHEL’LE, LOLA, and LIV.
Wide-set eyes appear farther apart. They have a generous amount of space between each eye. The area between them is typically longer than the diameter of one eye. Full lashes with medium or long extensions complement this shape the best. Styles with long extensions in the middle and inner corners also works well with this shape. For a natural look, we offer REINE, YARI, ALAINA, PASHA, and MICHEL’LE. For a dramatic look, we offer O'DARA, COCO, MAY BELLE, BELLA, and LIV.
Whew! Okay, we’re almost done. One last thing to say. You are not restricted to one shape. There is a chance you may have a combination of one or more shapes. For example, it’s possible to have round, deep-set eyes. Take that information into consideration when you’re searching for your styles.
