AU NATUREL

These eyelashes are for you if: “What you see is what you get” is your mantra, and a natural makeup look is what you’re known for. It’s so easy: Start with one coat of an eyelash primer to condition eyelashes. (The nylon fibres found in primers moisturize eyelashes and coax them back to their natural softness.) Top it off with one coat of a lightweight mascara. FLARE picks: Elizabeth Arden Lash Optimizer, $20. Dr.Hauschka Volume Mascara, $39. Suitable companions: A nude lip and shimmering eyeshadow keep this look simple and fresh.

FAKE OUT

These eyelashes are for you if: You love vamping it up. This look is best paired with a sassy state of mind, so work it. It’s so easy: Pinch falsies with your thumb and index finger while applying glue to the base. Let the glue dry slightly (about 30 seconds), then use the iris of your eye to centre the false eyelash against your own eyelash line. FLARE picks: Make Up For Ever Eyelashes, $17. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil in Onyx, $22. Suitable companions: Rim top and bottom eyelids (inside and out) with carbon black eyeliner for a full-on sultry look.

HIGH DEFINITION

These eyelashes are for you if: You’re a modern beauty who looks sophisticated and sexy no matter your age. It’s so easy: Using lengthening mascara, hold the wand horizontally and, starting at the bottom of your eyelashes, zigzag the wand back and forth the length of your eyelashes. Quickly separate sticky hairs with a brush before your mascara dries. FLARE picks: M.A.C Dazzle Lash Mascara in Black Dazzle, $14, and Lash Brush #204, $13. Suitable compan-ions: Create a radiant complexion with tinted moisturizer and a soft peach blush.

PUMP IT UP

These eyelashes are for you if: Fun is your name and flirting is your game. These eyelashes bring out your playful side. It’s so easy: Opt for an eyelash curler with a round-edged rubber strip, and clamp at the edge of your eyelid for three seconds. Repeat halfway up the length of your eyelashes. Turn up the volume with several coats of thickening mascara. FLARE picks: Too Faced Lash Injection Pinpoint Mascara, $28. Shiseido Eyelash Curler, $18. Suitable companions: Experiment with colours such as a bright pink or an orangey-red for the season’s on-trend vibrant pout.
