Faux lashes are no longer a niche beauty accessory, y’all. They’ve become a beauty staple and there are legit hundreds of different styles out there to enhance your eyes and deliver the drama you desire, from an everyday fringe to a fierce evening lewk. But if you’ve never touched a pair of falsies in your life, we’re here for you.
FLARE’s beauty intern, Giulia, who is a lash fiend (we don’t think we’ve ever seen her without major lashes, TBH), tried out eight pairs and reviewed each one based on everything from the band to the glue to the ease of application. Click through the gallery to find out which ones she swears by.

Starting short, these lashes get bigger and better as they reach the outer corner, giving that illusion of an elongated eye. These ones are a little bit on the thicker and fuller side, so take that as a warning if you don’t feel comfortable with that look.
Degree of difficulty: Low! Popping these bad boys on is easy-peasy and totally beginner-friendly.
The band: A clear, invisible band
To cut or not to cut: Nope, these are ready to go.
Pair them with: A highlighter in the inner corner of your eye for a standout eye look.
