Almond eyes are versatile, perfect for a range of faux eyelashes that enhance their unique shape flawlessly. Characterized by their narrow width and slightly pointed outer corners, broader middle section, they exhibit a unique shape. To accentuate their natural beauty, choose eyelashes of any length and depth that feature an even distribution of volume and length across the band. This enhances the inherent curve of almond eyes, making them perfect for creating a stunning cat-eye look.


If you notice white around your iris, chances are you have round eyes. Known for their playful charm, opt for curly and uplifting faux lash styles to accentuate this feature. Enhance the depth of your eyes with wispy-shaped lashes, focusing on the outer corners for a subtle cat-eye effect. Steer clear of thick, voluminous lashes to avoid diminishing the appearance of your lash line.


Hooded eyes, identified by a fold that conceals part or all of the eyelid, can give the eyes a closed or heavy look. Choose shorter, natural-looking lashes to avoid weighing the eyes down. Opt for fluttery lashes slightly longer in the center to create depth and enhance eye prominence. If you observe extra skin above the eye crease, it’s a clear sign of hooded eyes. Stick to subtle, shorter lashes to avoid overwhelming your eyes.


Monolid eyes lack a visible crease on the upper eyelid, offering a versatile canvas for various styles. Characteristics include a seamless upper eyelid area and straight natural lashes. Avoid dense, double-layered lashes for monolid eyes, as they can make the eyes appear heavy and small. Instead, go for fluttery lashes with criss-cross layers, opting for lighter, less dramatic styles to open up the eyes. Always remember to curl your lashes once applied.

And that wraps up our guide on picking the right faux eyelashes for your eye shape. Once you’ve identified your shape and preferred styles, don’t forget to trim the lashes for a comfortable fit. For more tips and tricks on easy application of falsies, click here. Check out our best lashes at
