False eyelashes are a great accessory. They can convey several fashionable states, from glam, to casual chic, to bold and beautiful. Getting the right lash look begins with knowing your eye shape. Eye shapes vary from person to person. Discovering your eye shape can mean the difference between making a statement and a fashion faux pas.
Know that false eyelashes aren’t one size fits all. They span the spectrum with a variety of lengths, looks, and curl patterns. Almond-shaped eyes, for instance, are relatively versatile and can work many types of false eyelashes. Despite this, there are still some key things to keep in mind.
A dazzling array of choices are available when it comes to false eyelashes, but with a few simple tips and tricks, you can find something you love. You can do this without sacrificing comfort – or your checkbook.
How Are Almond Eyes Defined?
To find the perfect lash for an almond eye, be clear on just what an almond-shaped eye is. There are six broad categories of eye shapes, including round, hooded, downturned, upturned, and monolid. Almond-shaped eyes boast a visible eyelid crease.
Almond-shaped eyes tend to come to a point near the inner and outer eye, with a wider center – similar to an almond. They also have part of the iris covered by the top and bottom of the upper and lower lid. If you have these eye characteristics, then you have almond-shaped eyes!
If you have almond-shaped eyes, you’re not alone. It is an eye-shape that many individuals have. Some celebrities even have this eye shape, including singer Beyonce and actresses Olivia Wilde and Emma Watson. People with almond-shaped eyes seem to have it easy when it comes to lashes, but this isn’t always the case.
What Lashes Work for Almond-Shaped Eyes?
If you’re looking for what works with almond-shaped eyes, jot down some basic rules. Take care to purchase false eyelashes that aren’t too heavy. Heavy lashes with a thick band will not only make you feel uncomfortable, but they won’t look real.
Get falsies that sport a thin and flexible band. You can blend a lash like this easily with your own set of lashes. Remember also to measure the lashes. Lashes that are too long for your eyelids won’t look flattering. Tailor your lashes to fit your unique eye length.

False Eyelash Tips
No matter your eye shape, you should strive to maintain your lashes. False eyelashes are a great way to jazz up any look, but they can come with some drawbacks if you aren’t careful. Be sure to keep your lashes clean.
Reusing your lashes saves you money, but if you don’t clean your lashes, you’re putting yourself at risk of infection. Using a cotton ball soaked in make-up remover, swipe the lashes from the tip of the lashes to the ends. Swiping your lashes will help to loosen, dirt, debris, and make-up.
Store your eyelashes in a clean, dry, cool, dark place. This will deter the growth of bacteria, mold, and the build-up of allergens. Lastly, store your lashes in an air-tight container.
Remember to never, EVER trade your lashes with anyone. It is always best to use your own.
