What Are Upturned Eyes?

Upturned eyes are naturally angled slightly upwards. The outer corner of the eye sits above the inner corner. You can use a ruler or long makeup brush to check how your inner and outer corners align.

Nowadays, many women use makeup to create the illusion that they have upturned eyes. You were lucky enough to be naturally blessed with them. 

Lashes For Upturned Eyes

We’ve selected the best lashes for upturned eyes, but first, here are some tips that’ll help you choose all by yourself. 

• With strip lashes, always look for a thin and extra-flexible band. This will allow you to manipulate the lashes and ensure they fit along your angled lash line.
• For a modern look, choose lashes with a gradual flare to enhance your eye shape

• On the other hand, if you want to create the illusion that your eyes are a little more oval, keep things uniform or longer at the center to balance your eyes.  r

DIY Extensions

If you don’t want to go without long, lush lashes, DIY lash extensions are a treat. They come in clusters, so you can customize your look, and they stay put for 5-15 days depending on the glue you choose. Here are the best ways to style DIY extensions when you have upturned eyes.   


To start things off, the Lilac St. Originals offer a subtle look that enhances upturned eyes without looking like false lashes. These clusters have the perfect balance of wispiness and voluminous criss-cross. That’s why they’ll flatter just about anyone.
To style them in a way that’s flattering but not extreme, create an incredibly gradual flare. Use short 8 mm lashes in the inner corner, three 10 mm clusters over the center, and a 12 mm cluster to enhance the outer corner just a touch further. 

Volume & Originals

This is a balanced yet dramatic look that flatters upturned eyes easily. It’s all about the Lilac St. Volume lashes, which have a more uniform design. They’re dense and long, for a glamorous look. In this lash map, we styled them gradually with minimal flare. The inner corner features the natural-looking Originals. Then, it gives way to two clusters of the 12 mm Volumes, followed by two long 14 mm clusters. This design elongates upturned eyes while still balancing them out with a touch of roundness. 


When you’re in the mood to exaggerate your naturally upturned eyes, this is the lash style to try. The stars of the look are the voluminous Lilac St. Hollywood clusters, which have a spikiness that keeps them from ever looking heavy. They’re ideal when you want to rock a showier style. It’s all about length and flare with this lash map. To achieve this head-turning effect, the look starts with 12 mm Originals at the inner corner of the eye. The more natural cluster in the inner corner keeps the eye looking fresh and open. Then, two clusters of 12 mm Hollywoods enhance the center of the eye. Finally, the outer part of the lash line flares out with a 14 mm cluster followed by a dramatic 16 mm cluster.

False Eyelashes

From simply flattering to dramatically enhancing, these are the best strip lashes for upturned eyes.

These Eylure lashes were designed in collaboration with influencer Jasmine Brown, who has memorably foxy upturned eyes. It’s a style that neither downplays nor exaggerates upturned eyes. It simply flatters, with a fluffy, spiky design, and uniform (but dramatic) length from the center of the eye outwards.
