BIGGER IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER
Sometimes bigger can be better, but this is not always the case, especially
when it comes to picking out false lashes. If you decide to fake it, like so many
other celebs and women are doing today, then choose lashes to compliment
rather than hinder your look. Two key factors should be considered during lash
1. The size of your eyes. Super long lashes only make small eyes look
smaller. If your eyes tend to resemble those of Renee Zellweger, Catherine
Zeta Jones or Zhang ZiYi, then opt for more modest lengths. Shorter, more
natural looking lashes serve as eye openers versus longer lengths, which can make already small eyes look heavy.

For larger doe-shaped eyes, think Katy Perry and Zoe Dechanel, fuller,
medium-to-long length lashes can serve as flattering, fluttery shades.

2. Day or night? Lashes, like clothes, need to be occasion-appropriate.
No self-respecting, rational woman would put on a cocktail dress to
bake at the beach, so the same logic should be used when picking
out proper lashes for each occasion. Less dramatic lashes should
be worn for the daytime and casual activities. More intense, dramatic
lashes are appropriate for after-dark parties and clubs, not to mention
an “absolute must” for those lucky enough to attend red carpet events.
Stick to these two rules-of-thumb and continue to wow the crowd with your lash
