Perhaps one of the highs of not going out during this quarantine has been the unimaginable bliss of being able to rub your hands across eyes without fear of smearing your mascara across your face. I’ll admit, this has been a luxurious and blissful feeling.
You can feel it in the air, the tentative joy and hopefulness that comes with the gradual easing of some COVID-19 social distancing measures. We’re beginning to realize the importance of certain things which we took for granted; who knew the mere thought of going out will generate so much excitement. As long as you’re putting efforts into wearing real pants, then you might as well go all the way and accessorize them with some amazing false lashes.
There is no better way to bump the volume, drama and length of your eye makeup than with some nice false eyelashes. While our favorite mascaras will always have a place to call home in our makeup kit, nothing beats some beautiful false lashes when it comes to leveling up your eye makeup.
Modern false lashes have never been so easy to apply, with some of the new invisible and flexible bands, diverse handcrafted and vegan-friendly styles, falsies have never been so attractive. We also have a guide on how to apply false lashes for those who might be a little rusty.
As we prepare to re-enter the world, I know some people might need a little pick-me up to prepare themselves, so if you’re one of those people, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Below are some of the best false eye lashes out there to keep your eyes popping and give you maximum confidence.
