Lash Curvature – What’s YOUR Curl Style?

October 5, 2017

Of course, many different things go into the decision of choosing the RIGHT eyelash extensions for your lash application. From physical traits like eye shape and natural lash properties to lifestyle indicators like maintenance routine and activity choices, a number of items are evaluated by your Lash Stylist to select the best eyelash extension lengths, thicknesses, and curl styles for your application.

But… all other things being equal, there’s a definite “look” that comes with each different eyelash curl.

Drama queen or natural beauty? Let your curl style shine through


Style: You prefer an au natural appearance and may frequently brave the world bare-faced, with eyelash extensions being your only cosmetic addition.

Use: X30s have the least amount of curl, making them the least dramatic of all the Xtreme Lashes extensions. Unsure if eyelash extensions are for you? These may be the ones to start with! Happy with the curve of your straight to slightly curled natural lashes? These are an excellent addition! X30s will add length and thickness without upgrading your curl.

Not For: Those with downward pointing lashes – these lashes can further emphasize a downward slope.


Style: You like to be a little done up, but not too much; a touch of gloss on the lips, a little liner on the eyes and you’re good to go on most days!

Use: Get a soft, flirty and feminine curl with the X35 eyelashes. This is the lash that probably comes closest to the curve of the average person’s natural lash and it’s an excellent option for all lash types and eye shapes.

Not For: N/A – When in doubt, this is probably your “go to” lash!


Style: You like to dress up, flaunt your fashionable side and even get a bit flashy from time to time. All-out glamour isn’t a necessity for you, but it is a frequently exercised option. You rarely head out of the house without a bit of color on your lids, a dusting of blush and a sweep of mascara on your eyelashes.

Use: The X40 eyelashes are the most universally popular extensions in the Xtreme Lashes line. If you want a noticeable increase in curl, one that compares to your hand-held lash curler, the X40s are going to give you that look. They’re dramatic and different from your natural lashes without being over the top.

Not For: Heavy-lidded or deep-set eyes – the increased upward slope on X40s may cause them to touch the skin above eyes that are hooded or deeply set. X35s reach outward a bit more before swooping up, making them a better option for some.


Style: You are a scene-stealer and a showstopper. Ultra-glam is your everyday aspiration! You like to be fully “made-up” more often than not, with dramatic eyes, and may even include false lashes in your daily routine.

Use: X50s are the vixen lashes of the Xtreme line. If you’re after a high drama appearance and want doll-like, doe-eyed lashes, these are the extensions for you! WARNING – not for the weak or faint-hearted! These eyelashes are for full-blown, flirtatious flutters!

Not For: Protruding, round eyes or those with downward pointing lashes – the dramatic upturn of the X50s creates a noticeable separation (split end-like affect) when applied to downward pointing lashes since they’re headed in opposite directions.

Often times, a mix of different lash curvatures results in the most beautiful lash look! Please be sure to always fully discuss your options with your eyelash extension stylist. They’re trained to ensure you get the right look for you, after evaluating ALL the factors involved! Find your Xtreme Lashes® Lash Stylist now.
