by WF Team on May 29, 2018

Adding a pair of your favorite lashes to your makeup routine does magically draw so much attention to your eyes. However, we all might have experienced a situation where the lash design might not be the best for your eye shape. That is why Wink Formula started out to offer various designs in natural and glamorous options for all our lash-lovers out there to have a better selection and yet wallet-friendly. Here is a guide to finding your right pair of lashes that complements your eye shape with a natural of glam finish that suits your liking.

Round Eyes

Rebels that are able to see visible white portions of the eye around your iris, you have the beautiful shape of round eyes! 

To accentuate this, you can opt for wispy lashes with a flared effect at the outer corners to create that flirty cat-eye shape. This gives the illusion of longer and larger eyes providing all the balance needed for your eyes to sparkle.

Almond Eyes

If you do not notice any visible whites above or below your iris, you my dear, might fall in the category of Rebels with Almond shaped eyes.

With a slight point at the ends of your eyes, most lash styles will suit your eye shape. You can draw attention to your eyes with round or flare designs, it all boils down to which look you are going for. Show off your beautiful eyes with voluminous lashes if you are feeling the bold and sultry vibe.

Hooded Eyes

If the fold of the eyelid hides some of your lid when your eyes are open, making not all of the lid visible, then you fall under our hooded eyes category.

Rebels with hooded eyes rejoice as wispy lashes are here to accentuate that sparkle in your eyes! Try a fluttery mix with long lashes directly above the pupil, lashes that are slightly longer in the middle will create the illusion of depth and open up your eyes at the center for brighter looking eyes. Wispy lashes will be your best friend but feel free

Mono-lidded Eyes

Most commonly found among Asian eyes, monolids are where the skin covers the upper eyelid and no crease is visible

Mono-lid beauties can leverage on how false lashes frame the eyes to give off that sassy vibes. You can opt for more fluttery lashes with a criss-cross & flare design to create a more wholesome balance of increased openness and length. If you have straight lashes like I do, be sure to prep your natural lashes by curling and applying mascara to them!

Deep-set Eyes

Ladies who noticed that your eyes sit slightly further back under your brow bone, you’re one of our lovely rebels with deep-set eyes.

We would recommend that you go for lashes with length and volume that curls up and away from your eyes. That would draw all the attention to your beautiful deep-set eyes. Try our glamorous styles that are extremely soft for that fluttery finish.

Close-set Eyes

If the distance between your eyes is shorter than the width of one eye, then your eyes are close-set.

Rebels that have close-set eyes may choose from lashes with all that flare to lift your eyes outwards to accentuate your eyes. Choose from lashes that will complement your eye shape and don’t be afraid to cut off any excess length of our lashes to suit your gorgeous eyes.

Remember, “Length and lift” - leave the inner corners free and concentrate on the outer corners

Upturned Eyes

Rebels with this eye shape, where the outer corners point higher than the inner corners of your eyes, are the perfect candidate for a sultry cat eye look.

Give our flared babies a try to accentuate a cat-eye look within seconds!

Downturned Eyes

Opposite of upturned eyes, rebels who notice outer corners point lower than the inner corners of your eyes, identify as downturned eyes beauties

Lift and balance your doll like eyes as you unquestionably have the perfect eye shape to grab attention by creating a voluminous cat-eye look. Extend the out corners by opting for a flared design along the lash line, this would draw attention to that sparkle in your eyes in the best way.
