The desire to have long, voluminous lashes is quite common amongst those with hooded or smaller eyes because they accentuate the eyes, making them look bigger and brighter. While some women go to extremes to achieve this look through costly eyelash extensions or in some cases incredibly expensive cosmetic surgery, there is a much easier, affordable and less invasive way to transform your eye shape instantly.
Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on maintaining expensive and fussy eyelash extensions with regular perming, which over prolonged use damages your natural lashes or shelling out thousands on permanent double-eyelid surgery, why not consider strip lashes that are actually designed for hooded or smaller eye shapes?
Maybe you’ve tried them before and aren’t impressed - but that’s probably because you’re buying the wrong lashes for your eye shape!

We know how important it is to have a lash you can feel confident in and choosing the right false lash for monolid eyes can be challenging. Lucky for you, we’re going to help you find it! After reading this, it’s safe to say you’ll be an expert on which lashes pair best for any occasion.
