With a variety of false lashes, lengths and shapes, how do you determine which style suits your eye shape best? Follow our guide below to learn which of these 13 new styles from LASHES IN A BOX compliments your personal eye shape and why.

Balanced Eyes

For Balanced Eyes - This eye shape has a visible lid, crease and brow bone. With this eye shape, the goal is to enhance the dimension in the eye by making the eyes appear balanced.

Natural: LASHES IN A BOX No°32 is a medium to long length, double-layered flare lash with more of a wispy style that will provide dimension to this eye shape. The double-layered style adds more of a 3D effect to this lash, which is great for achieving dimension and fullness.

In-between: LASHES IN A BOX No°27 is the ultimate elegant yet dramatic option. Not too natural or dramatic, it embodies a traditional flare style and is double-layered with medium and long tapered criss-crossed hair.

Dramatic: Meet LASHES IN A BOX No°33, a full and dramatic lash. Also double layered for dimension, it gives the balanced eye incredible dimension with its extra long hairs.

Deep Set Eyes

For Deep Set Eyes - This eye shape has a stronger brow bone where the eye lid is set back. The goal is to bring the crease forward to appear less deep. False lashes on this eye shape can often get lost due to a stronger brow bone, so wearing a longer more dramatic lash will help accentuate your eyes.

Prominent Eyes

Lash Application Techniques

Step 1: 

Curl your eyelashes using the KEVYN AUCOIN Eyelash Curler. The red rubber pad was made for a clear visibility of the eyelashes. Then follow with a light coat of mascara. Try the KEVYN AUCOIN Curling Mascara.


Step 2:

Measure each lash to your eye and trim if needed. Ensuring that the lash fits properly will help you achieve the most suitable lash along with an easy application and a comfortable wear. To trim the lash, use the ESUM Pro Detailing Scissors and approach the outer corner of the lash. Trimming the length and inner corners will affect the lash's overall style, so stick to trimming the outer corners only. Reassess the new shape and move on to glueing the lash.


Step 3:

Pick up the lash using the ESUM Precision Lash Applicator and start by brushing on the CALLAS Lash Adhesive to the lash band. This waterproof adhesive dries clear and is latex-free. Wait about 30 seconds for the adhesive to become tacky. Place the eyelash onto your lash band using the ESUM Precision Lash Applicator for maximum visibility and control.


Step 4:

Use the ESUM T11 Mascara Fan Brush to blend your natural lashes into the false lashes. Place a light coat of mascara on the tips of the fan brush and blend upwards starting at the base of the natural lash. Also ideal for adding color to bottom lashes.
