How to Choose the Right False Eyelashes for Your Eye Shape

Wearing false eyelashes is the quickest way to get longer, fuller lashes. But just like the right haircut can enhance your face, finding the right eyelash style can bring out the best in your eye shape. To help you out, two makeup artists have shared their best tips for finding the perfect false eyelashes for your eye shape and how to apply them like a pro. Almond eyes look beautiful with a cat-eye lash style, while round eyes should avoid a doll-type eyelash style.

It's important to take into account the shape of your eyes when choosing the best eyelash extension style. This style will make it look like you have a really good mascara on. The strip of eyelashes widens at the outer corners to accentuate the eyes without making them appear too close together. Sometimes, eyelashes can flatten out when you take them out of the box and therefore appear in the inner or outer corners once applied.

False eyelashes are no different than fringes: the wrong length, shape and style can unbalance facial features. You can bring your eyes together by wearing longer eyelashes in the inner corners. When the crease of the eyes does not create a crease, but occurs precisely in the lash line, it is a type of monolid eye. If you're having trouble getting your false eyelashes to stick together, try squeezing the lash strip down over your natural eyelashes so there's no gap between them and the false ones. Adding longer eyelash extensions to the outer corner of your eyes sharpens them and creates a well-shaped cat-eye look.

The eyelashes come in smaller groups that are placed on the bottom of your natural lashes, rather than on top, for a more natural result. Choosing and applying false eyelashes doesn't have to be difficult. With these tips, you'll be able to find and apply false eyelashes that will bring out the best in your eye shape.
