The Ultimate Guide to Monolid Eyelash Extensions Magic

Eyelash extensions are a great way to add length, volume, and curl to your lashes. They can give you a dramatic, glamorous look or a more natural, subtle look, depending on the style of lash you choose.

But, if you have monolid or hooded eyes, there are some special considerations to keep in mind when choosing and applying for lash extensions. In this guide, we’re diving deep into the enchanting realm of monolid eyelash extensions, covering everything from the basics to maintenance tips, and uncovering why they’re the undisputed choice for elevating the allure of monolid eyes.

What Are Monolid Eyes?

First things first, let’s understand what monolid eyes are. Monolid eyes are characterized by the absence of a distinct crease on the eyelid. Unlike other eye shapes, monolids don’t have the natural crease that separates the lid into distinct areas. Because there are no creases or folds that divide your eyelids into two regions, monolids can make your eyes appear smaller. Monolids narrow the space between your upper and lower eyelids. This unique feature can make finding the right makeup and beauty enhancements a bit challenging. 

However, it also presents an opportunity to explore and celebrate this special eye shape. Monolids are common among East Asian ethnicities, but this eye shape is celebrated worldwide for its unique charm.

What Is The Difference Between Monolids And Hooded Eyes?

Hooded eyes usually have a sagging brow bone, which sits on top of the lid, creating a floppier crease in the eyelid.

Both hooded eyes and monolid eyes have lids that are not easily visible while the eye is open. The difference is, monolid eyes tend to protrude with no crease whereas hooded eyes crease much more and don’t have much depth.

Best Monolid Eyelash Extensions

Folded eyelids will display the length of your lash extensions, whereas monolids will hide the upper half of all eyelashes. For people with monolids, you should use 1-2mm longer extensions. Also, keep in mind that thick eyelids will hide the inner corner of the lash line and the central section of the eyelashes, so choose your design carefully.  

🤎 Choosing the Right Extension Style

Similar to hooded eyes, monolid eyes are also somewhat versatile. The lash mapping styles that suit them will depend on their size, shape and the distance between the eyes. Monolid eyes don’t have a visible crease, so the goal is to create depth and dimension. To add depth and dimension to monolid eyes, employ a lash mapping style like Manga lashes that alternates short and long extensions along the lash line with lash spikes. This will create a textured, layered effect that makes the eyes pop, and stand out beautifully. This technique opens up the eyes and adds a touch of drama.

🤎Choosing the Right Curl

When choosing the ideal eyelash extensions for monolid eyes, it’s crucial to consider the curl type that complements the eye shape and accentuates its natural characteristics. For a monolid eye, finding the right curl is effective in opening up the eye and giving the appearance of a larger eyelid.

C and D curls

One highly regarded choice for monolid lashes is the C-curl extension. The C-curl provides a gentle lift to the lashes, opening up the eyes and creating a natural, flattering look for those with monolids. This curl type is ideal for individuals who want a subtle enhancement without an overly dramatic effect.

The D curl, featuring a gentle and dramatic curve, respectively, is also suitable for Asian eyes, including monolids. This curl helps create an open and lifted look, enhancing the overall appearance of the eyes. 

L and L+ curls

The L curl, with its unique L-shaped curve, and the L Plus curl can contribute to a chic and flattering set of eyelash extensions on monolids. 

The L and L+ curls are designed with a distinct shape to assist clients whose natural lashes have a tendency to grow downward. They provide a lovely lift due to their dramatic bend. These extensions create an eyelid lift effect, particularly benefiting clients with heavy or droopy lids, resulting in a more open-eyed appearance.

The unique L shape ensures a straighter base for the eyelash extension, leading to improved bonding with the natural lash and enhanced retention. To get the best results, we recommend positioning the base of the L curl extension parallel to the natural lash. Use your preferred adhesive for application. Keep in mind that these lash extensions are not appropriate for naturally curly lashes that curl straight from the roots.

🤎Choosing the Right Length 

In terms of length, it’s essential to strike a balance that complements the natural eye shape. Opting for extensions that are too long may weigh down the eyes, while lashes that are too short may not provide the desired impact. Many monolid lash extension enthusiasts find that a length between 10mm and 12mm works well, offering a noticeable yet tasteful length that enhances the eyes without appearing overly exaggerated.

Monolid Eyelash Extension Retention Hacks

Maintaining monolid lash extensions is an art in itself. Thin Asian lashes and those alluring monolids demand extra care. The thicker skin on monolid eyelids, combined with natural oils, can challenge retention. Fear not, lash warriors! Here are some post-appointment care tips:

  1. Use cosmetics with the least oil contained
  2. After makeup, use a powder to remove excess oil from the eyelids
  3. Use a lash coating sealant to coat lashes, so they are safe from the oil.
