Here is a graphic of the most common eye shapes that you will be designing on.
If clients have round eyes, we want to enhance their natural shape and elongate them. The key is to focus on creating length and volume at the outer corners of your eyes. By doing this, we can create a more elongated, cat-eye effect. Opt for longer lash extensions towards the outer corners and gradually shorten them towards the inner corners.
Almond eyes are considered the most versatile eye shape, as they can pull off a wide range of lash extension styles. To accentuate the beautiful almond shape, go for a mixture of long and medium-length lashes. This will open up your eyes and add a touch of drama without overwhelming them. Length focused over the center of the eye will make the eye appear larger and more open.
Hooded eyes have a more prominent brow bone, so the goal here is to create the illusion of a lifted appearance. Choose lash extensions that are longer in the middle and shorter on both ends. This will help to open up the eyes and make them appear more awake and refreshed.
Monolid eyes don't have a visible crease, so our aim is to add depth and dimension. Opt for lash extensions that vary in length to create a textured and multi-layered effect. Focus on adding more volume towards the center of your lash line to give the illusion of a fuller, more defined eye shape.
