For a lash artist, a satisfied client can be truly rewarding. Lash extensions are an excellent way to enhance one’s charisma. They give you the confidence to stand out on any occasion.
But figuring out the perfect lash style for your client can be challenging. A lot of it rests on your knowledge of the different eye shapes, which you might not have if you’re new to lash styling.
If you want to avoid displeasing your client with a lash set that doesn’t suit them, this quiz will come in handy. We’ll introduce nine eye shape types so you’ll get them right during your client consultation.
The human eyes come in nine different types of eye shapes.
No two clients have the same eye shape. Also, one can have a combination of these eye shapes. Find out what they are using this quiz.
Eye shapes can make the eyes appear large or small. Let’s compare the three most popular eye shapes using celebrity examples.
Now let's get more in-depth (see what we did there?). Eye shapes also differ in terms of how deep the eye creases are. Identifying the depth of your client’s eyes is important so that you know whether to add dimension or not.
The third question is how near or far your client’s eyes are from each other. A proportionate or symmetrical eye set has a distance of one eye in between. But if it doesn’t, their eye sets may be close or far.
When observing your client’s eyes, picture a horizontal line passing through from one corner to the other. Most almond eyes lay on an even plane while others follow an ascending or descending line.
Once you’ve identified your client’s eye shape, it's your job as a lash technician to recommend the most suitable lash style based on their eye shape. Each eye shape may look good with one or more styles. Take round eyes, for instance. Both the cat eye and the butterfly are perfect for this eye shape.
That said, here are the results of your client’s eye shape quiz!
Of course, this eye shape type quiz is only a simple tool for determining which lash style to recommend to your client. You still need a full and in-depth client consultation to determine which lash style would work best for them or if their desired style is ideal.
Ultimately, you still have to follow your client’s preference as long as it doesn’t pose a risk to their health and safety. Always consider their preference and validate their needs. After all, you want them to leave feeling happy and satisfied with their new eyelash extensions!
Aside from their eye shape, make sure you consider these important details during the consultation before proceeding.
We hope you found this quiz helpful in learning about the types of eye shape and the lash extension styles that best suit each. Now, you can highlight the beauty of your client’s eyes and give them the glow-up they deserve.
