Select natural lashes if you want a fine, subtle appearance. Many false lashes are made out of natural hair, despite being advertised as fake. Natural false lashes blend great with your real lashes, and they look more realistic than other lash types. If you go with these lashes, be sure to handle them with care. Natural false lashes are fine and subtle.
These work great for casual events, meetings, and daytime outings.
Alternatively, go with long and short lash types. Long and short lashes are a lash type that alternates the length of individual lashes for a natural, subtle look. These are completely artificial, and they are great if you want a natural glam effect.
Pick full volume lashes if you want a bold, edgy look. If you want to add more depth to your facial features, select lashes advertised as “full volume.” These are made out of synthetic materials. They have thick strips and more bristles, which make a dramatic look and open up your eyes.
Full volume lashes look great for proms, parties, and evening events.
Go with individual lashes if you want to customize your lash style. Individual lashes are applied 1 at a time to the lash line. It takes up more time to apply individual lashes than a strip of lashes, but the look turns out way more natural. You can add a few or many individual lashes, depending on the look you want to create.
Add individual lashes to the outer corners of your eyes for a wide-eye, retro look.
Accenting the outer half of your eye with individual lashes creates a subtle, flirty look.
Complementing Your Eye Shape
Go with dramatic, long lashes if you have deep-set eyes. If you have deep-set eyes, your eyes are large and sit farther into your skull. Your brow bone is prominent, and as a result, long lashes look the best. Look for a pair with lengthy tips and a moderate curl at the end.
Choose winged or wispy lashes if you have round eyes. If the crease of your eye is visible and your eyes are circular, you have a round eye shape. Wispy lashes create a cat-eye shape, which is flirty and feminine. The individual lashes are crossed to create a playful, wispy look. They also are slightly longer on the ends.
When you shop for the lashes, look for packaging advertised as “wispy.”
Select tapered end lashes if you have hooded eyes. If you have hooded eyes, the crease of your eyelid is hidden under the upper part of your lid or brow bone. When pairing false lashes, it is best to use lashes that are the longest in the center. The lashes on each end taper in length, which creates the illusion of depth.
Use light, slightly fluffy lashes if you have monolids. If you do not have any crease on your eyelid, you have a monolid eye shape. Oftentimes heavy, bold lashes stick out too far and look unnatural with monolid eye shapes, so instead go for a less dense pair. Select a set with slightly fluffy ends to create a realistic, full look.
Look for a pair with straight lashes that do not extend too far. Get a pair with a slight curve for a playful, natural look.
Fluffy lashes have thick, soft hairs stacked on top of each other to create a plush, gorgeous look.
Try a wide variety of lash types if you have almond eyes. Almost eye shapes look great with nearly any set of lashes. You can try a lightweight, short pair for casual looks, or try a bold, thick style for night time looks.
For example, if you want a bit more volume, try a set with criss-crossed lashes.
