The Different Eye Shapes – Which is Mine?

When we think about the "type" of eyes that someone has, we usually only consider color. But people’s eye shapes can be surprisingly different and varied too.

When you’re buying false eyelashes, it’s important to know which of the different eye shapes you have. Just like how a dress might look best on a particular body type, different lash styles look best on certain eye shapes.

Use our lash guide below to find your eye shape, and we'll recommend the best false eyelashes styles for you.

Psssst. Already know your eye shape? Skip to our guide!

Which false eyelashes suit my eye shape?

In order to offer something for everyone, we’ve developed a variety of 3D silk lashes of varying shape and fullness. Whichever of the types of eye shapes you have, here are our recommendations on the eyelashes to choose to best enhance and frame those gorgeous eyes of yours!

Round Eyes

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 Mandee 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

Hooded eyes are sultry and mysterious. Flaunt that mystique by really emphasizing your natural shape, with faux lashes that are long in the center and taper at both ends. Our Robin and Emma Lashes 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.

Monolid Eyes

Lucky you – monolids are an open canvas! However, although you could create a crease with any lash style, we would recommend shying away from really dense lashes that could make your eyelids appear weighed down. Instead, get the drama you’re looking for with a lighter, crisscross design such as our Mila and Tina eyelashes, paired with winged eyeliner to subtly emphasize your lash line.

Almond Eyes

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, Mila or Tina, all reusable eyelashes styles that will create exceptional drama and mystery.

Upturn Eyes

Upturned eyes are another incredibly versatile eye shape, since they are very similar to almond eyes except 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 emphasize this upward flick. Try our Jenai, Mandee 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!

Downturn Eyes

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 Robin or Jenai silk eyelashes – these are both low-volume, criss-cross lash designs that are best described as ‘spiky’. With the longest lashes at the center of the eye, they provide a subtle all-over lift to your entire eye.
