Choosing the perfect lash can be difficult, luckily the girls at Eye Candy have been hard at work putting together the ultimate eye lash guide for our falsie lovers! Understanding your eye shape will help you achieve the best possible make-up to suit your face. But, how do you know what eye shape you have?
1 – Check whether the whole iris is visible or obscured by the lid
2 – Consider if your eyes slant upwards at the sides and the amount of space which rests between them in the middle
3 – Lastly, observe the crease of your eyelid and check if its visible with the eyelids open.
Now you recognise your eye shape, lets get talking false
Close Set Eyes
Eyes which are narrower than one eyes width are considered
to be ‘close set’, meaning your eyes measure at less than one eyeball width
apart. For this eye shape, we recommend a lash which flares outwards leaving
the inner corners bare, pulling focus to the outer corners of the eyes.
Girls with an almond eye shape are blessed with an array of
lash options, this shape is incredibly versatile when it comes to falsies. Eyes
which are slightly pointed at the ends with a wider centre pair perfectly with a
high-volume lash, this style helps reach that extra bit of drama you were
looking for, drawing attention straight to your eyes.
If you struggle to see your eyelid when looking into the
mirror, this means you’ve got hooded eyes. Using the wrong lashes can pull the
eyes down, making them appear small. Try applying a wispy mix with long lashes above
the pupil in order to open up the central point of the eye.
Round eyes, dissimilarly to our hooded babes, applies if the
majority of your iris is visible. A light and curly lash is your friend, this
style gives the illusion of a more lifted top lid. Remember to give heavy
lashes a miss – no one wants smaller, flatter eyes!
Deep Set Eyes
Deep set eyes give the illusion of a very prominent brow bone,
this is due to the eyes being positioned further into the face. Emphasising
your eyes can be achieved by choosing a longer lash which curls up and out of
the way from your brow bone.
Protruding eyes are deeply receded into the face and best
paired with a dramatic, feathery lash to ensure your eyes are the talking point
of any occasion.
Mono lid Eyes
Mono-lidded eyes don’t have a crease on the eyelid, with
this eye shape flaunting heavier styles such as fluttery and multi-layered
lashes can help dramatically open up the eye.
