How to Wear False Lashes: 3 Different Lengths

When you chose the right style, wearing falsies can be an everyday affair, honest! Our beauty intern shows you how

More than Mascara: Very Natural
The first step is selecting a style you’re comfortable with. If you want to simply augment your natural set, or you’re a beginner, look for subtle, lightweight lashes that are just a big longer than your own. I loved how these lashes added length and slightly flared out without adding any drama. For more natural lashes, tightly trace your lash line using a dark eye shadow, pencil or liquid liner. This will camouflage the lash band and ensure it blends seamlessly.

Natural Glam
When adding a bit more drama to your look it’s important that you’re still recognizable as you.  Ardell’s Demi Wispies are my go to style for extra impact. (Think Demi as in Moore, not half.) These flare out more than the more natural lashes above, which opens up the eye and is flattering for all eye shapes. Plus, they’re versatile enough to be worn to the office or on a date.

Red Carpet Status: Major Drama
These authentic, cruelty free mink hair lashes really amped up my smokey eye and can be worn up to 25 times! I love how full these lashes are and the thicker band blended with my lash line instantly. When it comes to this type of full lashes, I’d suggest using a lash applicator tool or a pair of tweezers for an easier and precise application.
