Wearing false lashes can you give you the longer, fuller eyelashes you've always dreamed of, but did you know that certain lashes will look better on you than others? Just like choosing a hairstyle to match your face shape, different false eyelash styles can enhance your natural eyes, or even change the shape of your eyes completely.
Understanding your eye shape will help you work out the best make-up to suit your face, but how do we determine the shape of our eyes? Get a mirror to look at the overall eye and assess its profile. Can you see the whole iris (the coloured bit around the pupil) or is part of it obscured by the lid? Consider if your eyes slant upwards at the sides and how much space rests between them in the middle. Finally, look at the crease of your eyelid and observe if it's visible with the eyelids open.
Knowing your eye shape is just the first step, and now onto choosing your false lashes. With a growing range of falsies available (Eylure have over 100 products to choose from, for example), picking the best lashes can be confusing. Should I choose volume over length? Will fake lashes look natural?
Avoid a false lash fail by following these rules and you'll be fluttering a fuller looking lash in no time. Check out the celebrities giving us some serious lash goals and making the most of what nature gave them.
