Here at CF, we’ve been discussing makeup essentials for college girls, along with our favorite products for each beauty category. This week, we’re discussing our favorite false eyelashes, ever.
False eyelashes, for me, were always part of the unattainable Insta-girl’s collection. They always seemed too fussy and challenging to apply and wear throughout the day or night.
However, there’s no denying the look is unbeatable— the first time I wore falsies out, I couldn’t get over how much of a difference they subtly made. This is why people get hooked on them; they’re gorgeous, fluttery, flattering, and glamorous. They give that perfect vibe of yeah, I’m put together, what about it?
Read on to see some of my favorite false lash brands.
If you’ve watched Youtube beauty videos, you’ve heard of Ardell. Their Demi Wispies ($7.19 for 5 pairs) are widely raved about and honestly a fail-safe for me. They’re dramatic, yet not over-the-top, and have just the right density for a good occasion lash. Honestly, they give the look of lash extensions without the heavy price tag— and both application and removal are a breeze.
Beloved by celebrities and beauty icons such as Rihanna, Shay Mitchell, The Kardashians, and more, Lilly Lashes really pack a punch for your look. With a gorgeous double stacked strip, you can get an amazing amount of volume that’ll make your eyes pop from miles away.
Another favorite of A-listers and beauty gurus alike, Velour Lashes range from soft and natural to full and fluffy, and every option is absolutely beautiful. The pair above, Whispie Me Away ($29), are reportedly one of Meghan Markle’s favorites.
House of Lashes
House of Lashes is loved by YouTube gurus everywhere, including Carli Bybel and Desi Perkins, both glam queens. These full, dramatic lashes perfectly complete a full faced look for going out.
This brand, by influencer Tina Yong, was made with monolids and hooded eyelids in mind. The pair pictured above are the smallest option, Dainty ($8.63), which perfectly fit the curvature of smaller-eyed folks and gives a pretty, natural effect.
And that’s it!
