How to Choose Lashes

​Originally Posted on Nov 07, 2016 as Best Style of Lash for Eyes


A wide variety of falsies look gorgeous on almond shaped eyes. Try to choose a lash that is strategically crisscrossed on the strip for a naturally voluminous effect. Or for added flair try lashes that are longer on the outer ends. Single lashes in the outer corners also works really well.

Close Set

Apply individual or corner lashes to the outer edges only to create the illusion of elongation.

Deep Set

With deep set eyes lashes can easily be eaten up by the weight of the brow bone. To avoid this go for falsies that are longer, especially in the center of the lash. Wearing dramatic lashes works really well.

Down Turned or UpturnedWhen the outer corners of the eyes appear to be drawing downwards or upwards, try a shorter strip lash that is longer in the outer corners to lift your eyes. Spiky looks are ideal.


You have a couple of options when you have hooded eyes.

The first is to find false lashes that taper at each end, featuring the longest lashes at the center of the strip, which will draw attention inward, creating the illusion of depth.

The other option is to find a lash of varying lengths in which the ends are flared. This opens up the eye and disguises the hood and gives off the effect of an almond shape.

To create a fluttery, wide-eyed look apply individual lashes to the outer lower corner.


To create the illusion of a crease, try a full set of fine, fluffy, flirty lashes with a great curl. Crisscross lashes add great volume. Heavy lashes can stick out too far looking unnatural.


When your eyelids appear projected in the eye socket area try balancing your top lashes with strip lashes on the bottom, too, which will give the illusion of pushing back your eyes.


Play up your doll-like eyes with song long, wispy, dramatic lashes that splay upwards rather than fanning out. By keeping them long but not heavy you’ll make your eyes appear more cat-like without making them appear small.
Wide SetBring the attention inwards by using lashes with the longest fringe towards the center of the eye.
