How to pick the right pair of false lashes can be confusing especially with so many lash styles on the market. Well,.. be confused no more, I'm going to break it down for you and give you the simplest way to picking out the right pair of lashes. I will also break it down on choosing the right lash for different eye shapes. However, you will probably need to try on different styles of lashes to really see the difference and which ones you prefer.
Always remember: "Many lashes look alike, but the slightest difference in the lash design makes a big difference."
The simplest way of picking out false lashes is easy:
First, go by what attracts you and catches your eye. First and foremost. You have to like the way the lash looks in order for you to wear them. After you see several styles you will have a lash style that you are more attracted to. Also, you will have a preference you may be want a natural looking lash, or a full on glamorous lash that stands out.
Second, Keep the volume and length in mind. The heavier the volume the darker and thicker the lash is. If you don't want a bold thick lash then don't choose a full volume lash. Stick to the natural and medium volumes. You can tell the volume by the color and thickness. Darker the lash is more lashes which translates to more volume. Lighter and airy lashes is less lashes which is a lighter volume. It is a personal preference. It is split down the middle, we have customers that love full on glamour lashes and we have clients that want a lash to look very natural like it's their own lashes. Then we have customers that like both, One for the day and full volume for the evening. So keep in mind, this is just your lash style and preference
For most people, the volume plays the main deciding factor. After you know the volume, then it's pretty easy.
So now that we covered that lash styles are a personal preference. Below are suggested lashes for different shaped eyes. Lastly, picking out the right pair of lashes is about proportion. If you have very small eyes and delicate features, then a full on glamour lash may be too over-powering for you. But if you like the style, then find the same lash style in a lighter volume.
