Choosing an eyelash style according to your eye shape is essential for flattering your features

Eyelash extensions are a great way to enhance your look subtly without making permanent changes to something as delicate as your eyelash line.

They can instantly transform your look from flirty into sexy, and there are many eyelash extensions styles available that can go with any eye shape.

However, not many people are aware of the various styles they can choose. That’s because your average lash salon adds the extensions without letting you know what fits your eye shape best.

It’s essential to choose the appropriate eyelash extension style to suit your eye shape to ensure that it enhances your eyes instead of overshadowing them. Here is our guide to finding the most flattering eyelash extensions for your eye shape:

Almond Eyes

Almond eyes are deemed to be the most attractive eye shape due to their dimensions and proportions. The length is greater than the height, with a bit of an upturn at the outer corners, making it perfect for eyeliner.

If you have almond eyes, you’re incredibly lucky, as any eyelash style will look great. The cat-eye style will lengthen your eyes and give you a mysterious look, while the open eye or doll eye style will make your eyes look bigger.

Taylor Swift is a fan of eyelash extensions. She uses Cat Eye style lash extensions that are perfect for her long, narrow eyes.

Close-Set Eyes

Although this is technically an eye spacing classification and not an eye shape, it’s known by the gap that is less than one eyeball’s width between your eyes. If you have close-set eyes, you’ll want to draw more attention to the outer corners of your eye, so opt for eyelash extensions with longer lashes towards these areas.

You can make your eyes pop by creating subtle changes in the lengths of lashes on the outer corner to create a more dramatic effect.

Your inner corner should have shorter lashes, and the outer corner must have longer ones. To give the illusion of a bit more space in between the eyes.

Single Lid or Monolid Eyes

This eye shape is most common among Asian women and is characterized by the lack of a visible crease.

If you have this eye shape, you’ll want an eyelash extension with more curl to it, like a baby doll or cat-eye style. These styles will add more length to your outer corners and accentuate your long eye shape, making it look even more attractive.

Hooded Eyes

Those with hooded eyes have extra skin above their eyes’ creases. Sometimes the hood looks indistinguishable, while other times, the excess skin is an overlapping hood that sits right on the top of your lash line.

In this case, you’ll want the open-eye style eyelash extension, which adds more fullness and length to your eye center.

Round Eyes

Round eyes are also known as big eyes, which means they’re probably your most distinct feature. Your eyes are likely as tall as they are wide, which means that any eyelash extension will compliment them! However, it’s best to stay away from the open-eye style since it makes your eyes look even more prominent. The cat-eye style will lengthen your eyes without adding more height, but any eyelash style that suits your personality will work best.

Deep-Set Eyes

Deep-set eyes are positioned further into the eye socket. The goal for your eyelash extensions is to create the illusion of your eyes sitting closer to the outside of your face rather than deep inside. Baby doll or open-eye lash-style extensions are great for this purpose.
