Selecting and applying all types of Individual Lashes
There are many different types of individual lashes, that each offer a slightly different effect depending on your personal preference. Individual lashes definitely provide the most natural enhancement, as you can customise your own look to suit your eyes and natural lashes.
Depending on the individual lashes you opt for, they each offer a seamless blend with your own lashes, and are a soft, subtle way to add as much length and volume as you require.
Flared clusters are probably the most popular choice when it comes to individual lashes, as they are easier to apply in comparison to single strand individual extensions. They feature a fuller appearance as they are formed into clusters of hairs that softly flare outwards and are available in knot-free or knotted form.
Opting for individual flared clusters, allows for a quicker enhancement, as you can build up your desired amount of volume faster than you can with single hair extensions.
- Quick and easy to apply
- Available in a variety of lengths
- Creates a full, flared appearance
- Allows for a more voluminous finish
Knotted VS Knot-free
Knotted individual lashes consist of a tiny bulb at the base of each individual lash cluster, designed to make the application process a little easier. Knotted individual lashes ideal for beginners as it is clear to see where to apply the adhesive, and which end to position the lash against your natural lash line.
Knot-free or ‘bulb-free’ lashes, don’t have a bulb or knot holding the individual lashes together, they instead resemble natural lashes more for a softer look once applied. If you like the effect of individual lashes, but want the most seamless blend possible, knot-free lashes will provide an understated yes effective enhancement.
- Easier application
- Perfect for beginners
- Seamless blend with natural lashes
- More natural finish
Single individual lashes are single strand hairs that offer the most natural finish possible from any individual lash. If you require incredible length and definition, without heavy volume or a textured effect, then single strand lashes are an ideal option.
Available in a range of different lengths, as well as black and brown shades, these lashes simply sit directly on top of each of your own individual hairs, providing a seamless blend and soft, subtle enhancement.
- Provides naturally defined look
- Softer finish in comparison to clusters
- Adds impressive length
- Blends seamlessly with your natural lashes
Double and Triple Clusters
Double and Triple individual lashes are when more than one individual lash has been formed together into clusters of twos and threes. These lashes are often designed in doubled-up or 3D designs to add a more dramatic, bold effect.
These fake eyelashes are not only a top pick for achieving a fuller finish, but they are also quicker to apply than single strand lashes, or individual lashes as you need fewer clusters to create a full effect.
- Offers a full, dramatic appearance
- Quicker to apply than individual flared clusters
- Available in extra dense designs
Brown VS Black
When it comes to selecting any type of lash, whether it’s individual lashes or a strip style, selecting a shade that suits you is important. Black tends to be the standard shade available in most popular false lashes, as it suits many hair colours and provides a stand-out effect.
If however, you prefer a softer look from your lashes, or you have naturally fair hair, there is a selection of brown individual lashes available on our website for a more subtle finish. If you want dramatic results, then reach for black individual lashes, but if you want a more natural look, brown lashes are your best bet.
- Softer appearance
- Suitable for those with fairer natural hair
- Enhanced definition

- Suitable for many hair colours
How to Choose Individual False Eyelashes (That Suit Your Eye Shape)
Finding false eyelashes that you love is easy, but ensuring it suits and enhances your particular eye shape can be the tricky part. But there’s no need to worry. Once you have established your unique eye shape and what styles work for you, stocking up on your favourite individual lashes will be a piece of cake!
We’ve identified some of the most common eye shapes below and the best individual lashes for those eye shapes:
One of the most common eye shapes we often get asked to pick a style for is hooded eyes. Hooded eyes mean that you have more skin above your crease and most of your upper lid is hidden when your eyes are open. Therefore to enhance your eyes, you need to create more depth.
Selecting an individual eyelashes style that features increased length in the centre as well as heavier volume, allows for an eye-opening effect that instantly gives the illusion of larger-looking eyes. Don’t select a style that is too dramatic - full lashes will close the eyes up.
If you’re lucky enough to have large, round eyes then you tend to get away with a wide variety of different lash styles. You can see the majority of white around your iris if you have round eyes and long lashes with a dramatic curl tend to look best as this lifts and enhances your upper lid.
Voluminous styles can sometimes be too heavy and make your eyes look much smaller than they are, instead opt for a natural lash with elongated ends for an instant cat-eye effect.
Mono-lidded eyes are most common among Asian women and it is when there is no visible crease on the eyelid as it is covered by skin. Women with mono-lid eyes tend to have very straight eyelashes, therefore false lashes are the perfect way to enhance their eyes creating length, lift and curl.
Multi-layered lashes with a curled, fluttery appearance complement mono-lid eyes as they work to open them up for a wide-eyed illusion. A lash with a graduated length is also a great way to elongate mono-lid eyes, adding a touch of glamour to your look.
Almond-shaped eyes show no white above or below the iris, and they’re slightly pointed at each outer edge with a wide centre, making them extremely versatile. Many different lash styles accentuate almond eyes, and they look best when their shape is enhanced with a full lash style that features evenly distributed volume.
Deep-set eyes sit behind the brow bone and if your eyes are deep-set, you need to create depth to open up your eyes. You can do this by wearing an ultra-dramatic lash style as many bolder styles will suit your eyes and won’t overpower them. Choose a long, curled design that adds fullness.
