Are Lashes Even the Right Choice for You? Of Course!

Have you ever put a pair of strip mink lashes on and realized you didn’t like the way they looked on you? I’m sure it’s happened to most people.

At that point, you probably were thinking that maybe lashes were not for you. If this were the case, then we wouldn’t have eyelashes in the first place! It’s all about finding what works for you and your eyes!

Picking out the right lashes isn’t always an easy task. Most women find it tricky to pick the right set of eyelashes for them because eyelashes are a relatively new favorite concept that’s now taking mainstream attention. Choosing the right lashes can compliment your eye color, eye shape, face shape, make your eyes appear brighter, bigger, and more awake and bring out other small features you may have.

Everyone wants lashes! But, how do we know which eyelashes are the best for our eyes?

The Need To Know

To understand which eyelashes are for you, we have to get familiar with the different eye shapes out there. There are quite a few of them! But once we know what’s best for each eye type, you can shop for eyelashes like a pro whenever you want!

Fortunately, Private Label Extensions offer lines of 3D Mink lashes in the regular strip and thin strip depending on personal preference. The styles range from tapered and full to thin and wispy. That is all depending on what you are looking for, and the best part is, they won’t break your bank, and you can try as many as you want!

For this blog piece, we will use these eyelashes as examples for which lashes are best for your eye type! Ready?

Which One Are You?

Round Eyes

When it comes to round eyes, this shape appears naturally large and circular almost similar to almond eyes.

But, they are merely just larger and rounder. For the beautiful girls with round eyes, we want to accentuate how big your eyes are without making them look too bulky, tired or overdone. We can do this in a few different ways.

The first way is to choose lashes that are naturally thin and fan upwards. In this case, less is more, so Private Label’s Milan, Toronto, or the New York flat strip 3D Mink lashes should do the trick. If you want to be a little more dramatic without it making your eyes appear smaller, opt for some wispy lashes that flare to create a cat eye look.

The regular strip 3D Mink lashes, Amelia, can give you that look while staying true to your eye shape! The cat eye look can make your eyes appear elongated and more narrow. So, thin but extra long eyelashes might be a good choice in this department!

Almond Eyes

One of the best parts about almond shape eyes is its versatility and the fact that they are considered the average the shape of the population.

A variety of lash looks will look great on this eye type, so there aren’t too many limits here! Depending on what you are looking for in a pair of eyelashes can decide what kind is best for you and your personal preference.

For some slightly added flair, try some thicker lashes that are longer towards the ends. These descriptions sound a lot like Private Label’s regular strip 3D Mink lashes in Eden and Lola. If you want a little more volume look for lashes that contain crisscrossed strips, which you can find in Grace, New York, and Dubai.

You can make your eyes appear larger, by opting for a tapered pair of strip lashes. This look can include lashes, such as Bangkok, Vegas Shanghai or Lola. Play around with the inventory and see what you like best!

Monolid Eyes

These type of eyes are one continuous lid without a visible fold.

These are most commonly seen in people of Asian descent but have also been widely shown in other ethnicities as well. Lash strips can create an immediate difference in the eyes appearance, one of them is making the eyes appear more awake and open. Contrary to what most may have heard, these type of lashes is quite versatile and experimental.

Usually, the lashes on these type of eyes are straight, so for some added accentuation, it’s best to try strip ashes that have a curl pattern to them, that isn’t too thick. Otherwise, you could make your eyes appear heavy and tired.

Try the 3D Mink lashes London or Alice to achieve this look in two different ways! With this eye, we want to create the illusion of more elongated eye shape. These eyes are different, yet bold and captivating. Not everyone can pull off this eye shape, so if you were lucky enough to be born with it, strut!

To bring back how versatile these type of lashes are, if you prefer a look that is more natural, you can always try for the lashes that are short to medium length with a curl intensity. This look will bring a slightly dramatic look to your eyes without overdoing it.

Claire, Ella, and Jane should be perfect. Try them out!

Deep Set Eyes

Similar to monolid eyes, deep-set eyes sit deep within the eye socket with a small lid.

This look can create the appearance of a more prominent brow bone, which can look overwhelming if you choose the wrong set of lashes! These women are lucky enough to be able to experiment with more dramatic sets of lashes.

Lash sets with longer lashes towards the middle can make the eyes appear to pop out more. You don’t want the weight of your brow bone to take away from the look you are trying to achieve, so opt for more prolonged and dramatic lashes, such as Lola, Grace, Chloe or Dubai.

Deep set eyes are a beautiful feature to have! They give off the appearance of a youthful and free-spirited glow!

Hooded Eyes

Hooded eyes have slightly more skin above the crease. The fold of skin that covers the eye socket line characterizes hooded eyes.

The illusion we want to create with these eyes is a depth effect. We want to make the eyes appear bigger and brighter in the center. These type of optics are unique!

To gain this effect, lashes that are long yet longer towards the center are the best move. They will open the eyes dramatically and immediately while drawing more focus towards opening up your eyes more towards your brow bone making them seem more substantial in appearance.

Wide Set Eyes

Wide-set eyes are spaced more than one eyeball apart from each other.

This look is gorgeous because they always make the person who has them appear younger and are stunning to look. You can get lost in these eyes if you are not too careful! Can you believe all the things you can tell about a person only from their eye shape? We want to give the illusion of the eyes appearing closer.

We also want to even out the proportions of the eyes! So, therefore, you ladies with the big wide and beautiful eyes should try lashes that are more dramatic with thick lashes towards the middle of the eye to give this effect. Fuller lashes will mask the extra space between your eyes.

Experiment with different flared out styles! Eden, Violet, and Chloe could be your best friend after reading this!

Close Set Eyes

The opposite of wide-set eyes, close-set eyes are less than one eyeball length apart, making them appear more narrow the other eye shapes.

These eyes are captivating and command attention the moment you look into them! We don’t want to exaggerate this feature over, but we want to draw more attention towards the outer corners of the eyes to even out the proportions and make them appear further apart.

We want to lift and lengthen the eyes, naturally! The best way to do this is to use lashes that are longer toward the ends but long in general. The tapered lashes that range from medium to extra long lengths would be perfect in this case!

Fortunately, so many styles in stock for Private Label compliment this, such as London, Vegas, Bangkok and more!

Downturned Eyes

Downturned eyes have a slight drop in the outer corners of the eyes.

The great thing about these eyes is the fact that they look amazing when experimenting with cat eye looks. You also give off the impression of being sweet, sensitive and attentive to a meaningful conversation. To make your eyes appear more upwards, its best to opt for lashes that are full, tapered and extremely long!

This look will create a symmetric appearance in your eyes, while also adding a sense of drama to your look! Private Label Extensions’ selection of mink lashes is perfect for these. Look at our inventory and search around for any looks you see that appear long and tapered, such as, New York, Vegas, Dubai, Milan, Chloe, Lola, Eden, or Grace.

Prominent Eyes

Prominent eyes, protruding eyes, or “big and beautiful” eyes give the appearance of popping out of its socket.

They are large, bright and take up most of the features in your face. It’s time to play around with that! Another thing is, you have plenty of eyelid space to work with different eyeshadows! We don’t want you overwhelmed, so smaller to medium lash lengths are best for this eye type.

    Thanks for this post! Thanks to you I now know I have a thin almond eye. I also had individual lashes once and they were a nightmare because each hair was too thick. I am looking forward to using the mink strips.

  2. Tiffany E. says:

    I have only worn lashes once and honestly wasn’t a fan. However, after reading this blog, I think I was given the wrong type of lashes for my eyes. The lashes the makeup artist put on me began to fall off and felt very uncomfortable within minutes of application. If I ever decide to try lashes again, I will for sure consider my eye shape before purchase. Thanks

  3. Jojuania says:

    Wow, this was very helpful and informative this information should also be available for only the stylist who works with you guys to post certain information about this on their Ig or Facebook to inform their clients get info.

  4. Tomasena says:

    I’ve struggled trying to find a lash that will work for me. Thanks for posting. This will be very helpful when helping my clients decide also.

    I was happy to see this article from an educational perspective because lashes truly are not a “one style suits all” beauty product. Luckily lashes are now available in various, lengths, thicknesses and styles! The eyes are a focal point and I can recall seeing people with lashes that seemed too short in length, and it usually turned into a situation where I didn’t want to stare but I couldn’t stop looking, trying to figure out what was a little off balance. I learned that since I have almond shaped eyes my lash options are unlimited, so now I will be more inclined to try various PLE mink lash styles to see which style will ultimately become my favorite. (Maybe I will use this as a way to feature a new style each week as a recommendation to my customers.) I would also love to incorporate the eye shape diagram and lash recommendations to my customers as well so they are more inclined to try my lashes along with their extensions.

  6. Michelle says:

    This was very informative as now I know I have round eyes. This information will also be helpful to potential clients. Thanks again for the information.

  7. Alexis R says:

    The article was very informative. I’ve worn and applied strip lashes and individual lashes to my self and others for years. When applying individuals I would think of the Clients lifestyle and the shape of there eyes because they can be worn over a period of weeks. With strips, I would also ask the clients what was the occasion and what mood they were in. Because strips only last for a day or two. Lashes are very fun and creative way change your look at any given time

  8. Yolanda Burton McDowell says:

    Wow! This article needs to be Shared In Nail Salons all over the World that provides lash services (including my city). It was never mentioned that the shape of the eye has a major impact on how your lashes look…..local Nail Salons are pretty cut and dry either you wear the lashes provided in the nail salons or bring your own. And Considering ladies love Lashes I would recommend lash Strips because not every lash style look good on every eye shape..sometimes the lashes are way too long, full or even short and strips allow for an easier removal process.

  9. Antoinette O’Bee says:

    Thank God someone went into depth about choosing lashes for your eye shape. I have seen so many women wearing lashes that actually shut their eye that it’s pretty crazy. I personally have round slightly almond-shaped eyes, If I wear falsies I tend to do individual lashes because I like them to look as natural as possible. If I choose strip lashes they must be wispy, and the style of lash has to be slightly shorter on the corners and fuller and longer towards the middle. I’ve found these work best for me and they help me achieve that wide-eyed natural look. The wrong lashes can really have u looking like a fool out here lol

  10. Chaka Holloway says:

    This was very helpful. I have round eyes so now I know which style lashes to get to accentuate them. I feel like everything I put on my eyes just makes them look even bigger
