Lash match maker: find the perfect eyelashes for you!

Are you wearing the right lashes for your eye shape? At Silly George, we know how important it is to find the perfect eyelashes, the ones that are not only going to complement your look but feel like they were made for you. 

Figuring out your eye shape means that you can make your lashes work for you even more. The right lash will flatter your shape and frame your eyes perfectly. And once you find the perfect pair, there’s no looking back.  

And don’t worry, you don’t have to figure it out on your own. We are here to give you low down on everything shape-related so you can find your match.   

Looking for the one… 

How do you figure out your eye shape? We make it super easy. You just have to get in front of the mirror and ask some simple questions. 

1 – Are you able to see the whole iris (the coloured bit of your eyes) or is a part of it covered by your lids? 

2 – Do your eyes slant upwards at the side? How much space is there between them and the middle? 

3 – Can you see the crease of your eyelid when your eyes are open? 

Now that you had a good look at your beautiful eyes you can finally discover your eye shape and the eyelashes that will take your look to the next level.   

A match made in heaven 

Almond Eyes

Almond Eyes

The clue is in the name: they are oval shaped, just like an almond. These eyes are slightly pointed at the ends and with a wider centre where the curve of the iris is hidden by the lower and upper lids. This is the perfect shape to turn up the volume and go for full lashes that will complement your eyes.  

Your Lash match:  

SG Girl Boss lash, a bold lash style that will give your almond eyes some serious volume.   Monolid Eyes

Monolid Eyes

 With this shape, the crease of the eye isn’t visible when your eyes are open. Mostly common among Asian women, mono lids have a less apparent crease and a smaller eyelid. Go for top-heavy styles to complement your shape and choose multi-layered lashes to open up the eyes.    

Your Lash match:  

Go for criss-cross and wispy lashes with SG Girl Crush

 Hooded Eyes 

Hooded Eyes 

Hello prominent brow bone! Hooded eyes hide the eyelids when opened causing them to look smaller. If you pick the wrong lashes, they can make your eyes look small and pulled down. Choose long and fluttery lashes and apply them directly above the top centre of your lash line to open up the eyes. 

Your Lash match:  

Try the SG Girl Overboard lash to lift and brighten up your eyes.   

Round Eyes

Big-eyed girls, this one’s for you. Round shapes are often large and circular, and the crease is always visible. Pick styles that will lift or elongate your eyes and that are longer on the outer corners.  

Your Lash match:  

Try SG Girl About Town for an elongated, almond-like effect.
