How to Choose the Perfect False Eyelashes for Your Eye Shape

Choosing the right false eyelashes for your eye shape can be a daunting task. To get the perfect fit, hold the lash strip against the upper lash line and make sure it starts about a quarter of an inch from the inner corner of the eye. If you go wider, your eyes will appear droopy. For deep eyes, look for longer lashes that have a decent curl and more length towards the center.

Cluster lashes or individual lashes may work better, since you can customize them to create the desired look. Strappy lashes can also be used, but be careful not to choose a set that can pull down the lid and make them appear smaller. For hooded eyes, choose eyelashes with very short inner corners and concentrate the volume and length on the outer corners. Medium eyelashes may also be beneficial to create emphasis and draw attention to the eyes.

Cat eye lashes are ideal for this eye shape and should widen outwards, drawing attention to the outer corners and lengthening the shape. When applying false eyelashes, measure the width of the false eyelashes relative to the natural line of the eyelashes and trim any excess length before applying them. Beginners may find a medium or corner eyelash easier to apply than a full strip lash, while individual lashes also work great for this eye shape. When it comes to finding the best false eyelashes, it's important to choose ones that fit your eye shape and enhance your natural beauty. Makeup artist turned Instagram sensation Nikki Wolff recently dedicated her hand to creating false eyelashes, so you can find a variety of styles that will suit your needs.

Inclined tweezers are great for applying eyelashes, but beginners can find an easier eyelash applicator to achieve precision and hassle-free control. Once you've marked that stain, cut the eyelashes out of the vein, being careful not to cut any of the lashes themselves.
