Mademoiselle Lash Guide
Our lash guide is here to help you discover which of our false eyelashes would be the best lashes for your particular eye shape.
We’ve all been there – you love that amazing dress on your bestie, but when you try it on, it’s just not quite the same. The same is true of faux lashes; just like our bodies, our eyes come in different shapes and what suits your friend may not be the best lash style for you.
To discover your best eyelashes style match, use our guide below to first find out your eye shape. Then read which of our Mademoiselle silk lashes styles we’d recommend for the most flattering and natural look on you.
Here are the 6 most common eye shapes:
Conversely, if your answer is below the line, you have downturned eyes. You’ll find our recommendations for your best eyelashes further down the page.
If your eyelid crease is visible, there’s one final question left to discover which eye shape you have.
Question 4: When you look straight ahead at the mirror, can you see the whites of your eyes below the iris (the coloured part)?
If you answered yes, your eye shape is rounded and we have two reusable eyelashes that will be perfect for you. Find out what they are below.
If you answered no, you have almond shaped eyes – you’ll find your best lashes matches just below!
Which are the best false eyelashes for me?
We offer four 3D silk lashes styles of varying shape and fullness. Whether your shape is monolid, almond or something else, here are our recommendations on which eyelashes to choose to best enhance and frame those gorgeous eyes of yours!
Round eyes have amazing dimension! Enhance this depth further by avoiding very thick false lashes, which could overwhelm your lash line and make your eyes appear smaller. Instead, look for wispy and winged eyelashes. Our Tina and Jenai reusable eyelashes will draw out the length of your lash line perfectly, creating a gorgeous cat’s eye shape that will open your eyes out even more.
Hooded eyes are sultry and mysterious. Flaunt that mystique by emphasizing your natural shape, with faux lashes that taper at the ends and have long lashes in the centre. Our Mimi eyelashes combine long and short lash lengths in this way, precisely layered to create the illusion of depth. They’re also a subtle blend of black and brown, for a more natural look.
Lucky you – monolids are an open canvas! However, although you could create a crease with any lash style, we would recommend shying away from denser, double-layer lashes that could make your eyelids look weighed down. Instead, get the drama you’re looking for with a lighter, crisscross design such as our Mimi and Tina eyelashes, paired with winged eyeliner to subtly emphasize your lash line.
Almond eyes are the most universal shape and are blessed with versatility – a wide variety of false eyelashes will work for you. However, the best lashes style is one that takes full advantage of your catlike stare – voluminous lashes with winged ends. Pick the Jenai, Adrienne or Tina, all reusable eyelashes styles that will create drama and mystery to keep everyone guessing what you are thinking.
Upturned eyes are another incredibly versatile eye shape, since they are very similar to almond eyes but with an upward lift at the outermost corner. 3D lashes that gradually increase in length towards the outer edges, in a classic winged shape, will best emphasise this upward flick. Try our Jenai, Adrienne or Tina lashes which will all highlight your natural, catlike eye shape, and give them a beautiful extra lift that you didn’t even know you were looking for!
Downturned eyes are that captivating, vintage-esque shape you see on all of the movie starlets from the 1920s. False eyelashes that are too dense and heavy will only highlight the downturn, so for a more modern look, stick with lashes that are wispy and natural-looking. To give your outer corners a helpful lift, try our Mimi or Jenai silk eyelashes – these are both low-volume, crisscross lash designs that are best described as ‘spiky’. With the longest lashes at the centre of the eye, they provide a subtle all-over lift to your entire eye.
