How To Define Your Eye Size
Being aware of the size of our eyes in comparison to the rest of our facial features can be super beneficial when it comes to applying lashes. If the lashes are too small and you won't be satisfied, too long and you'll feel out of depth. So, let's get started.
The 3 categories of eye sizes are:
How Do You Know if You Have Small, Medium, or Large Eyes?
The size of your eyes is a combination of vertical and horizontal measurements. Most of the time, you should be able to look at your eyes and tell if they are large or small. If they seem like neither, then they are most likely medium.
The key is to take a step back and look at your face overall. How do your eyes match up proportionally with your face?
- If your facial features (think nose and mouth) seem much larger in comparison to your eyes then you probably have small eyes.
- If your eyes seem larger, then big eyes it is.
- If you fall somewhere in the middle, then you guessed it, you have medium-sized eyes!
Take a look at the diagram below to get a clearer understanding of how to measure your eye size:
Recommendations for Small, Medium & Large Eyes
- If you have small features, keep in mind that lashes will look larger on you and more dramatic.
- Sometimes the lashes will be too long for your eye size, which will mean you may have to cut the lash to get the perfect fit. For more info on how to cut your lashes, check out our tutorial here.
- For small eyes, we recommend selecting lashes from the Magnetic Accents and Magnetic Everyday Range. These lashes create shapes that will leave you feeling naturally beautiful and accentuate your eye size.
- If your proportions are quite petite, take a look at our shorter lashes with C & D curls for beautiful accentuation. The Sarah & Bec Lashes are both great for petite features.
