Posted on by Jenny Ho

The monolid eye shape is very common amongst Asians, but not exclusive to. It is when there is a lack of visible crease above your upper lash line. It can make applying false eyelashes and eye make-up quite difficult. However, when you have mastered the technique and lash shape, it’ll come to you as a breeze. Ardell and Red Cherry are amongst the most popular best lash brand for small monolidded eyes.

Did you know that many people who have monolid eyes wear double eyelid tape? Well now you do! For those unfamiliar with what eyelid tape is, it’s a sticker you place where you want your crease to be. So for example, if you want to make your eyes look fuller and dramatic, place the tape a little higher. If you want a more natural look then place the sticker lower, for a hooded eye effect.

Who needs surgery when you have eyelid tape to make a double eyelid look?
