Eyelash extensions are growing more popular by the day. As an alternative to piling on mascara, those interested in extending their eyelashes have a new way to achieve their beauty goals. Since the start of false eyelashes, designs have only become more realistic. 

A primary focus on eyelash extensions is pairing them with eye shape. An understanding of your shape will give you more insight into the lash styles you’re most interested in, as well as those you find to be the most flattering for the shape of your eyes. Once you have an idea of your eye shape, you can try out different lash designs to find the pairings that work best for you. 

In addition to learning more about eyelash extension types and styles, you’ll also need to factor in your personal preferences. With your lash technician, you can discuss the lashes you’re most interested in and create a game plan together.

Eyelash Length Considerations 

Keep in mind that Ellipse Eyelash Extensions typically range from 5mm-18mm. Most technicians will not move past 15 mm in length or under 8 mm. To determine the lash length that will work for your eyes, remember to factor in how long your natural eyelashes are, the size of your eyes, the amount of space you have on your eyelids, and how intense of a look you want to achieve. Be sure to speak with your eyelash technician about having variations in length for a defined, voluminous look. 

Get the look you want for your eyes.

Choosing the right set of Ellipse Eyelash Extensions is a trial-and-error process. Take your time with your selections and communicate with your lash technician openly so you get what you really want in your eyelash extensions.
