Best false eyelashes for every eye shape
Here are five falsies lashes that will give you the flutter-worthy lashes you’ve always wanted for everyday wear or even the Grammys!
From subtle to va-va-voluminous, false lashes are the ultimate switch-up to any beauty look. When you have small lashes and mascara just won’t cut it, these prettifying heroes can help you achieve your lash goals. But unlike most beauty products, you can’t try them out before buying. That’s why finding out the perfect set is essential beforehand.
First of all, you’ll need to determine your eye shape. If you have almond-shaped eyes, you should opt for lashes that are extended towards the outer edges for a winged effect. Falsies with a mixture of long and short hairs are ideal for hooded eyes as they open them up at the centre. Meanwhile, wispy lashes that have slightly longer hairs in the middle of the strip are perfect for bringing depth to round eyes. Those with monolids should avoid heavy lashes, which can look unnatural on this eye shape, and instead go for denser multi-layered lashes that are longer at the tips.
Learning how to apply false lashes is also important before buying. If you’re a falsie novice, an application tool (or tweezers) can make things easier. Use this to carefully remove your strip lash from the tray and place it along the top of your lash line. Some lashes need to be trimmed down to size. To prevent lashes from lifting, roll them around your finger beforehand to give them a curved shape. Once they’re ready to stick on, apply a thin layer of glue onto the band and wait 30 seconds for it to get tacky. When sticking them on, place the band as close to your own lash line as possible and apply gentle pressure with your fingertip or tweezers. Mascara can be applied before or after to ensure the falsies blend with your natural lashes.
Most false eyelashes come with a miniature tube of glue, but you can easily find a full-sized bottle at most beauty stores – including Boots and Superdrug.
Whether you’re going full glam or keeping things natural, we’ve tried out a selection of fluttery falsies to help you pick the perfect pair.

Cardi B's Makeup Artist Shares All the Details of Her 2018 Met Gala Look
Though this year's Met Gala is Cardi B's first, she already has some love for the event. She and now-fiancé Offset made their first appearance as an official couple at a Met Gala afterparty last year, according to Elite Daily, and she glowed while attending his Met Gala-themed birthday party this past December. Now, she can say she's been to the real deal (with Rihanna as a host, no less), and she's gone full-on with the theme of heavenly bodies.
Make-up artist Erika La' Pearl helped create the perfect Met Gala-ready look for Cardi with Marc Jacobs Beauty, which seems to have become her go-to makeup when she revealed her pregnancy on Saturday Night Live in April. However, La' Pearl opted for a drugstore brand when it came to topping off the look with false lashes, looking to Kiss's Lash Couture Triple Push-Up lashes ($7) for dramatic eye fringe.
"While I am prepping the skin, I allow my lash glue to dry and become tacky on a flat surface so that I can pop it right on the lash line once I finish with her eye shadow blending," La' Pearl tells Allure — a tip anyone can steal for themselves. Speaking of eye shadow, "I created a cut crease incorporating black and purple eyeshadow for on-trend beauty," La' Pearl says of the classic-yet-edgy Met Gala eye look she did for Cardi B, who has "beautiful almond-shaped eyes."
From her Instagram story, it looks like La' Pearl used Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Youthful Look Foundation, Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter, and the #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder.
Amazingly, La' Pearl has figured out a way to prevent almost all of Cardi B's makeup from budging throughout a major event. "I ensure that Cardi's makeup doesn’t move throughout the evening," she tells Allure. "Cardi has amazing skin, so the only product she needs is her lip color," she says about sending her client onto the red carpet, with barely any need for touch-ups.
