How to find the right lash style for you?
It’s no surprise that the shape of our eyes is a huge influencer on our styling choices. The possibilities for styling eyelash extensions are endless–from the basic cat eye to the ever-popular doll eye, each style is customised minutely to your particular eye. The number-one rule for in beauty and fashion has got to be do what’s best for you and love your own shape. But first, we need to find it–and don’t worry. SUAIU LASH have Four simple questions are all you need to determine your eye shape, and find the right extension style for you.
To find your eye shape, get a mirror. Ready?
1.Do you have a crease?
If your answer is no, you have a monolid shape. If you do have a crease, read on.
2.When a line is drawn through the middle of your eyes, are the corners of your eyes above or below the line?
If they fall above this line, you have upturned eyes. If they fall below this line, your eyes are downturned. If they’re in the middle, time for another question!
3.So we know you have a crease. Can you see your crease, if facing the mirror straight on?
If you can’t, your eyes are hooded. If you can, move on to the next question.
4.Do you see the whites of your eyes around the iris when your eyes are in resting mode?
If you can see the white of your eyes at all time, you have round eyes! If not, your eyes are almond-shaped.
It’s honestly that easy! Now that you’re all updated on the shape of your eyes, we can match them with some lashes that are perfect for you. Of course, at Lady Lash we love to experiment–if there is a particular shape that you’ve been dying to try, we will give it a shot! For the best possible match, however, here is a handy guide.
-Doll eye shape: this style involves shorter lashes placed on the inner and outer corners, whilst longer lashes are placed along the middle of the eye. This is a great style for monolid, hooded and almond eyes, as it creates a flattering opened-up look and freshens up the face.
-Cat eye shape: a lash classic, cat eye style features shorter lengths gradually lengthening to long lashes on the corner of the eyes–this mimics the shape of winged liner! Perfect for those with round eyes, the cat balances out the eye shape and creates a sultry look. Upturned or downturned eyes may want to look elsewhere, however; the cat eye can make these eye shapes look smaller and unflattering.
-Natural eye shape: this style is our simplest one. The extensions follow the lengths of the natural lashes, with the longest lashes hitting the arch of your brow. A natural eye suits everyone, but doesn’t really alter anything about your face–if you’re looking to make a statement with your lashes, this may not be the style for you.
-Staggered eye shape: fast becoming our most popular shape, the staggered style is more messy and textural than other, more structured options. A staggered eye is applied by placing longer and shorter extensions across the lash in an uneven style, and is frequently seen on the Kardashians. Staggered is a great choice for most eye shapes, especially for a more dramatic look. If you have a particular eye shape, you can also work a more staggered look into your usual style！
