The best eyelash extensions for your eye shape
Eyes are completely unique in terms of their size, shape, depth and colour, so it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to choosing the right style of lash application. The type of application will depend on the shape of your natural eye. Each set of lash extensions should be customised to each individual for the most flattering look.
Below is a list of common eye shapes and possible application techniques to define and complement the eyes.
Those with straighter lashes (particular Asian hair types) should opt for a curled lash, as it will really make the eyes pop and lift up the natural lash line, rather than dragging it down.
Those with rounder/larger eyes benefit from the ‘cat-eye’ look. Applying longer lashes to the outer corner of the eyes, elongates the eyes for a very sexy look.
Almond shaped eyes don’t often suit the cat-eye look. They tend to look beautiful with longer lash extensions applied to the middle of the eye, to widen and open the eyes.
Those with deep set eyes usually require longer extensions with not as much curl, and often benefit from having a lighter full set rather than an extreme set, as extreme sets on smaller or deep-set eyes can look overdone.
Mature ladies wishing to lengthen their lashes but still look natural may opt for a finer extension type in a shorter length for a soft and lightweight appearance.
