Which false lashes are best suited to hooded eyes?


If you have hooded eyes, you know that finding the perfect pair of false lashes can be challenging. Hooded eyes are a common eye shape where a fold of skin droops over the crease, making the eyelid appear smaller. False lashes can enhance your eyes making them look brighter and bigger, transforming your overall look.  With so many options available in the market, it can be overwhelming to choose the right pair. In this blog post, we will discuss the best false lashes for hooded eyes.

Length and Curl

When choosing false lashes for hooded eyes, it's important to look for lashes that are applied UNDERNEATH your natural lash. This will create an illusion of a more lifted and open eye as the false lash will naturally curl upwards towards the eyelid. A slight curl in the lashes will also enhance your eyes beautifully. Lashes with a natural-looking curl will blend seamlessly with your natural lashes and provide a subtle yet beautiful look.  Invisylash Natural are the PERFECT lash for hooded eyes.  They come with a mascara-like SuperBond which is gives a secure 24hr hold.


Wispy Lashes

Wispy lashes are a great option for hooded eyes because they add volume and length without overwhelming the eyes. The delicate and lightweight fibres of wispy lashes create a soft and fluttery effect that opens up the eyes. You can opt for lashes with less volume on the outer corners and more on the centre for a more balanced look. However, it's important to note that not all wispy lashes will work for hooded eyes. Some wispy lashes can be too long or too thick, which can make the eyes look smaller or give a droopy effect. Therefore, it's essential to try out different styles to find the perfect pair that suits your eyes. Invisylash Superlight is the perfect beginners lash if you are thinking of trying lashes for the first time.

Lashes with an INVISIBLE Band

False lashes with an INVISIBLE band are ideal for hooded eyes. They are easy to apply and moUld to the shape of your eyelid, making them extremely comfortable to wear. An invisible band also allows the lashes to blend seamlessly with your natural lashes, creating a much more natural look. Avoid lashes with thick bands as they can appear heavy and unnatural, which is not ideal for hooded eyes.  Our Invisylash range was created for this very purpose.

Individual Lashes

Sectional lashes are a great option for those who of you who are feeling a bit overwhelmed and want something very simple to start with. They are applied to in sections starting from the outside of the eye and working inwards. They can be applied all the way across the eye to create an illusion of a more lifted and open eye. Sectional lashes are also a great option for those who have hooded eyes and want to enhance the outer corners of their eyes.  Our Ribbonlash was designed for this specific purpose and comes with a FREE bottle of SuperBond.


Choosing the perfect false lashes for hooded eyes can be a bit overwhelming, but with the right knowledge, you can enhance your eyes and transform your overall look. Remember to look for lashes that are applied UNDERNEATH your natural lashes and always use lashes with INVISIBLE bands ends.

We also recommend that you finish off your lash look by sealing the lashes either with a metal eyelash curler or a heated one.  If you are concerned that your lashes are going to fall off half way through the day, this is THE SECRET to long lasting lashes and a must have tool.
