Understanding Types of Lash Extensions and How They Work Best With Your Eye and Face Shape!

One of the most important things we as lash artists can provide our clients is the skillset to assist and guide our clients to finding the right lash style for their eye and face shape! Lashes are a luxury investment and should be treated as such! Getting a new set of lashes which compliments your face and eye shape can literally transform the face of a person. With so many eye shapes and lash styles, finding the style that perfectly suits your eyes can be a bit tricky, but necessary!


There is an artistry to finding the right lash style and curl to match the face and eye shape! You can’t just trust any old “lash artist” to understand and be able to apply this unique skill and knowledge set. At Rebel, we always recommend going to a licensed and trained lash artist to ensure you are getting exactly what you need and walk out knowing you paid for a quality product and exemplary service!


So with our further ado, let’s unveil the perfect lash style, curl, and length based on eye shape!


ROUND EYE SHAPE


You can identify yourself as having a round or prominent eyes when you have a crease beneath your eye that stands out. Round eye-shaped people show the complete iris along with most of the white of their eye, unlike other shapes. They are also the curviest eyes which fit a wide range of eyelash extension styles. However, curly and long lashes are said to be the best type of eyelash extensions for round eye shape. Multi-layer lashes add a prominence to round eye shapes which can’t be matched.

ALMOND EYE SHAPE


When you can see a pointed shape towards the outer edge of the eye, you have almond-shaped eyes. Almond-shaped eyes look gorgeous from every side. The center of the almond eye-shaped people is wide, going narrow towards the edges. An oval shape, almond-shaped eyes need volume lash type. And the best part, almost all the eyelash types, and styles suit almond-shaped eyes.

MONO-LID EYE SHAPE


The Asian eyelash type or mono-lid eye shape is one of the most complex eye shapes and is one of the eye shape styles which is the most vital to ensure you get the lash style right! If you have mono-lid eyes, you need to add a crease to the eye as it does not inherently have a crease. This eye-shape is easy to be noticed being almost flat-looking on the face.


Multiple lash extension layers and volume around the edge of the eyes or across the eye are required for monolid eyes. Monolid eyes achieve the best transformation with eyelash extensions which have both lendth and flare in order to bring out the best results and really enhance this gorgeous eye shape for everything it truly is! Adding volume to the lashes on the outer edge of the eyes defines and outlines the monolid eyes best and can create a result like no other!

UPTURNED AND DOWNTURNED EYES


The downturned eye shape bends down towards the edge of the eye while the upturned eye is turned up towards the edge of the eye. If you present with having an upturned or downturned eye shape you can mix two different lengths of lash towards the center of the eye, grabbing the attention wherever they go.

CLOSE SET EYES


If you have close-set eyes, i.e., the eyes are set close to each other or in other words when the inside of both the eyes is set close to the nose. This unique eye style requires lash extensions with more length to increase the size of the eye. For a close-set of eyes, it is advisable to get long eyelash extensions with more along the outer edge of your eyes to increase the dimension of your eyes creating drama and intrigue.


Adding a lift to the lash styles will enhance and define the close-set eye shape.

The hooded eyes have a heavier brow line and skin which folds over the outer edge. Adding the right and length and curl of eyelash extensions towards the middle of your eye is vital with this eye style so you can appropriately enhance the eye shape and add a bright and deep effect to them. Choosing volume lashes with length and curl along the edges will make the illusion of bigger eyes.

A C Curl, or J Curl or L Curl are great lash extension choices for this eyeshape and brown shape as they are a longer lash style with a more prominent curl toward the apex of the lash allowing the client to enjoy lash extensions without the lash extensions hitting their brow line!
