Without further ado, let’s jump into the facts!
1. Perfect For Every Occasion!
Do you find yourself tearing up at funerals, during sad movies or in some cases at a wedding? Falsies are the perfect tear-proof make up! When you attend a sorrowful event the last thing you want is to have dark streaks running down your cheeks. Your fake eyelashes won’t leave these dark streaks down your face. “False eyelashes are a wonderful way to enhance your eyes without piling on a ton of makeup. While mascara can only darken and lengthen the eyelashes you have, false eyelashes can multiply the eyelashes that you have,” says Courtney Lutkus from StyleInGo.
Lashes aren’t just for the sad events, they can be worn day to day too! Perhaps you have a job interview? This calls for light and more natural looking lashes, not too volumizing and not too long; perfect!
Honestly, the possibilities are endless, you can mix and match until you find your favorite pair of lashes for each occasion.
Why do we love lashes? They are versatile, they can be worn every day and you will find a pair of lashes for every occasion – they really do transform your look.
2. Spoilt For Choice.
No two false eyelashes are alike, they come in all types of different styles, shapes, and sizes. Depending on the budget there is almost definitely a pair of lashes out there for you. Want to know what your lashes are made of? The lashes you wear are made of many different fibers and, you’d be surprised.
Amongst all styles, the most popular are real human hair, synthetic and mink lashes. Synthetic lashes are the cheapest followed by human hair and then mink. The quality differs between the three types, we found human hair to be the most common lash due to accessibility, price, and quality.
Eyes come in all different shapes and sizes, thankfully our lashes are developed to fit different eye shapes. Scared your lashes won’t fit? You guessed it, we have a cut your lashes to size guide hun.
It’s totally dependent on the final look you’re hoping to achieve. Different lashes will give a different appearance, for example; mink lashes give a more natural look whereas synthetic lashes give a faker look. You’ll find human hair falsies give a realistic look for a fraction of the price of mink lashes. No wonder they’re so popular!
The most common myth is that your beautiful set of new falsies will ruin your real eyelashes… this is not true my darlings! False eyelashes do not ruin your natural lashes, however, you must apply them correctly. If you’re new to wearing false eyelashes, check out this awesome guide we put together that even a novice is able to use. Remember, practice makes perfect!
Your falsies are no magical makeup, they don’t contain they weren’t made at Hogwarts, but they do work wonders.
They transform your look, and at the same time can be worn as alternatives to other eye makeups like mascara, although it’s not 100% proven they can help your natural lashes stay super strong and healthy. “Mascara weakens your eyelashes and makes them brittle. Thus, by wearing false eyelashes as an alternative to mascara your eyelashes will start to look thicker and healthier,” Luktus says.
It’s no guarantee they will help your real eyelashes become stronger but it’s the healthier alternative to mascara.
Mascara is often the cause of damaged and broken lashes, the mascara (often waterproof) dries on the lash causing it to become too dry, very brittle and eventually break. When not removed correctly, mascara can collect lots of bacteria and infect the follicle. Doesn’t sound too nice, does it?
4. Eyelash Extensions.
A strip with multiple hairs stuck to it isn’t the only option. Lash extensions can be worn for days. If you relish every single minute you get to stay in bed before getting up for the productive day ahead, lash extensions are perfect! Unlike false eyelashes, lash extensions can be worn for multiple days and nights too, explains Anna Lewis of Cosmopolitan.
We explain a little more about the advantages of lash extensions.
It’s all dependent on the person, some prefer lash extensions and some prefer full strip falsies. So eyelash extensions are applied differently and require a professional to do it, “they’re placed using the correct weight and correct length individually on your natural lashes,” Murray says. They aren’t actually placed on your skin, there’s no skin involved during the application of lash extensions, they’re placed on your natural lashes. When your natural lashes are ready to shed, your lash extensions follow.
They seem perfect but a lot of maintenance is required to keep them looking beautiful, including no contact to water for at least 36 hours after application.
Lash extensions are estimated to last for roughly 2 weeks as on average, we shed roughly 3-5 eyelashes every single day. The same duration it takes for your eyelashes to shed basically. The main pro to wearing lash extensions is no more mascara – yay! That means saved time in the mornings and you guessed it more time in your lovely bed.
5. Good Lashes, Good Mood and a Good Day.
