False eyelashes can instantly make your eyes look bigger, brighter and more prominent. Finding the perfect mink eyelashes for your eye shape can seem a little tricky at first. But the key to finding the style that suits you most is identifying your eye shape! In this post, we will help you identify your eye shape and find suitable lashes to complement your facial anatomy.
Close-set eyes: Close-set eyes are spaced less than one eyeball width apart and need lashes that are tapered (longer on the ends) to create the illusion of elongation. Opt for flared lashes with the longest hairs concentrated at the outer corners like Ella or Marilyn Lux to draw attention towards the outer corners of your eyes.
Deep-set eyes: Deep-set eyes are set deep into the skull with a more prominent brow bone. Opt for wispy lashes with extra length that will bring out your eyes while taking front stage over your lids. We suggest the Marilyn, Patricia, Lola Lux and Olivia Lux that features wispy natural-looking ends and a medium volume to switch focus from your brow bone to the center of your eyes.
Down-turned eyes: This shape has a slight drop on the outer corners. You will need to create symmetry and an upwards illusion to correct this drop with extra long lashes that are tapered at the ends like the Marilyn Lux, Ella, and Olivia Lux.
Small eyes: Small eyes are proportionally smaller than the rest of the facial features. You need to select eyelashes that look as natural as possible and are not too thick or heavy as those will only make your eyes appear smaller. You can opt for tapered or winged lashes that will make your eyes look wider by putting focus on the outer corners like the Flutterfluff Twiggy or Ella. Or if you want to make your eyes appear larger and rounder, start by curling your lashes with a lash curler to open up your eyes and go for double tapered lashes that are longer in the center and shorter on the two outer corners like the Natalie, Jackie and Lucy.
Hooded & Heavy Lidded eyes: Frame your eyes by selecting a pair of double tapered lashes with short and long strands that feature the longest lashes right above your pupil like the Patricia, Natalie and Ella. Hooded eyes have a veil of skin that droops over the crease and make the moving part of your lid appear smaller. To prevent this extra layer of skin from taking center stage we suggest long lashes that move focus upwards towards your brow bone.
Round eyes: Round eyes are large eyes with their width and height being nearly the same. To accentuate the circular shape of your eyes wear long, tapered (longer on the ends), and dramatic false eyelashes that fan outwards like the Elizabeth, Marilyn Lux and Olivia Lux avoid lashes that are too thick and double tapered as they can actually make your large eyes look rounder and smaller.
Wide-set: You will need to bring attention inward for this shape of eyes with lashes that are double tapered with the longest hairs being towards the center. We suggest full flared lashes like the Marilyn or the Elizabeth Lux to help mask the extra space between your eyes.
Monolid eyes: False eyelashes are a great option for girls who have no crease because the lashes can create one for you. Monolids are very versatile, so feel free to experiment with different styles depending on the look you’re going for. We suggest medium length lashes that are tapered like the Twiggy Lux or Madison to accentuate and soften your eyes without over powering this beautiful features.
Up-turned eyes: This eye shape is an up-turned version of the classic almond eye. It features a natural lift at the outer corners which means that most eyelash styles would work beautifully. You can opt for double tapered lashes like the Marilyn, Lucy, Jackie or the new Lola Lux. Avoid lashes that are tapered and longer on the ends as they will create additional lift on your outer corners.
Prominent eyes: Prominent eyes are protruding eyes that have the appearance of bulging out of the eye socket. To prevent your protruding lids from overpowering your look we suggest lashes that are short or medium in length. You can play up any lash style with double tapered lashes that are wispy or clustered being the most flattering for you shape like Natalie and Lola Lux.
Almond shaped eyes: The almond eye has equal proportions with a visible lid when the eyes are open. Most false strip lashes look beautiful on this eye shape. Opt for a pair of wispy, voluminous mink lashes like the Flutterfluff Lola Lux or Marilyn and for added flair you can go for lashes that are tapered and longer on the outer corners like the Ella and Olivia Lux.
