The Most Flattering Lash Extensions to Get, According to Your Eye Shape

It’s hard to imagine the beauty world before lash extensions existed. Thanks to them, we can roll out of bed and into the office looking wide-eyed and awake (even if we went a little too hard at happy hour the night before). They’ve democratized the full-lash club and given those of us not naturally blessed with sky-high lashes a chance to experience their joys, fluttering our eyes with the best of them. But anyone who’s had a bad lash extension experience can attest to the fact that it’s not a one-size-fits-all type of business. A good lash technician will look carefully at your unique eye shape and tailor your extensions around that, instead of choosing the same lash curl and length for all of their clients.

“Every client has unique eye characteristics that are best suited to certain types of styling, curl-types, and lash lengths,” says Sugarlash Pro founder Courtney Buhler. As the creator of a company that specializes in lash extensions, she felt to us like the perfect person to speak on the best eyelash extension for your unique eye shape. Whether you’re an eyelash pro or an extension newbie wanting to know what exactly to ask your technician for, we’ve got tips that will be helpful to you below.
