About Best Lashes for Deep Set Eyes

Finding the best set of false eyelashes for your deep set eyes is so important, because they are an accessory for the most central and (pardon the pun) eye-catching part of your face! The perfect set of false lashes can completely change your look, tell a story, or let people know what your attitude to life is. Natural and subtle, big and bold, or long and luscious. There's a lot to be gleaned simply by observing the lashes someone opts to wear. 

It’s easy to fall in love with false eyelashes, but have you ever stopped to consider whether or not you're choosing the correct lash style for your eye shape? Having lashes too heavy on the eye can make your eyes look droopy, so it’s important to determine what eye shape you have before buying and applying lashes.

What's your eye shape?

Eyes aren’t a one-size fits all feature, everyone has differences in colour, size, depth, and shape - and it’s these differences that work with your other features to determine your very own uniqueness. When people look at your face, it’s generally your eyes that they see first - and we all express so much of ourselves and our personalities with our eyes, it’s no wonder that people want them to look their absolute best.

Trying to work out what style your eyes are isn’t always an easy job (some shapes are much closer to others, and it can be difficult to really nail down which one is yours). So we’ve popped together some helpful hints and advice, on discovering your eye-shape, what you need to know about having deep set eyes, and even some fashionably forward makeup tips to really add on to your style.

If you're a little strapped for time then why not check out our eye shape quiz? Our quiz helps you to quickly find your eye shape, and we'll even make a few style recommendations according to your eye shape.

What are Deep Set Eyes?

So what exactly are Deep Set Eyes? Well, the clue's actually in the name.

Deep set eyes are exactly what they sound like, and what you’d expect them to be. When someone who has deep set eyes was formed, their skull was shaped in such a way that the eye sockets were set deeper in.

This makes the brow bone more prominent and can make the eyes look smaller than you think. Because of the additional depth of the socket, shadowing and dark colours are generally avoided, to prevent the eyes from looking really small and sunken.

With the right false lashes and makeup look, if you’ve got deep set eyes, you can bring out your eyes to look twice as big. Just make sure you get the balance right between your brow bone and eyes.

How to Tell if Your Eyes are Deep Set?

Deeper set eyes tend to have eyelids that look shorter and small, with a visible crease, and less white visible on the eyeball.

To give you an idea of what this looks like, have a look at pictures of:

  • Kristen Stewart
  • Jennifer Aniston
  • Keira Knightley

So you're in great company if you have Deep Set Eyes!

Best Eyelash Choices for Deep Set Eyes

Deep set eyes aren’t as common as some other eye shapes, but for the vast majority of people with deep set eyes, it doesn’t impair the vision or cause health-problems, it’s simply part of how their skull was formed and is a natural element of the way their face is shaped.

We recommend lashes that are dramatic and long in length and wispy in texture for deep set eyes, so it gives the impression of pulling the eyes forward, pairing this with dynamic makeup techniques, or simple application of lighter tones can make a huge difference in how you look!

We stock a variety of brands and have an extensive list for you to choose from, including: House of Lashes, Peaches & Cream, Lilly Lashes, KoKo Lashes and more.

Some of our best-selling lashes for Deep Set Eyes include:

If you’re looking for a dramatic look with deep set eyes, we totally recommend using false lashes that create length across the eyeline, with the longest lashes in the middle - this helps to balance out the overall look of the eye and give the illusion that all the lashes are actually the same length when you’re looking at them from face on.

To achieve a stunning look, we also recommend:

Whether you want to achieve a lighter, more natural look, or go big and bold - we’ve got exactly what you need to make your deep set eyes stand out as a stunning feature!

Making Your MakeUp Make an Impact

From natural lighter looks, to full on ready to party, sometimes the right makeup can make all the difference when it comes to finishing your look. Having deep set eyes might sometimes feel like you’re being limited in the colours and techniques you can use - but we’ve put together some gorgeous guidance, so you can take your look to the next level.

Eyeliner Techniques for Deep Set Eyes

When you’ve got deep set eyes, you’re going to want to be careful when it comes to applying your makeup in order to ensure you don’t overly shadow your eyes, and make them appear smaller or more sunken in (unless that’s the look you’re going for).

It’s important to apply eyeliner halfway across your bottom lash line and avoid applying within the inner corner; this technique will brighten up and open your eyes.

Try to avoid anything that’s too dark or heavy when you’re lining the middle of your eyelid and the lashline - to get the best results, you’ll want to start at the outer section of your eyelid (liquid eyeliner is often easier to use than pencils for this, as you can better control the application and the thickness of the line), and apply the liner at the highest point where your eye curves, then drag it outwards - stopping at the point just beyond where your lashes end.

Solid flicks and Cat Eyes aren’t recommended styles for deep set eyes, as too much length on the liner will make your eye look as if it’s been weighed down, and will look narrower, instead of opened up and wider.

If you’re careful with the application, a winged finish with the eyeliner being thinly applied at either end, and slightly thicker in the middle, and accented with a very thin application on the lower lid, can make a dramatic difference.

Using Eyeshadow with Deep Set Eyes

When applying eyeshadow, it's best to avoid dark colours and apply light neutral shimmers. To make deep set eyes feel less sunken down, lighter colours and nude shades are ideal for the eyelid, as they diffuse the natural shadow of the brow bone, and conceal the actual depth of the socket.

Apart from false lashes, we also supply a range of perfect makeup brushes, so you can easily obtain the right brush for the perfect makeover - having the right tool for the job is super important, especially if you’re blending or graduating your colours and eliminating the harsh lines that make your eyes seem deeper than they actually are. If you want to get that super clean finish just right, you need to pick the right accessory!

If you’re still looking for ideas to elevate your appearance, why not focus on adding a bold brow to your look as well, seeing as you already have a prominent brow bone, you can accentuate this part of your face even more and really create an eye-catching look.
