If you’re not exactly naturally endowed in the lash department and you’ve always longed for a long and voluminous set but aren’t really interested in lash extensions, false eyelashes are your next best bet (and, they don’t require a hefty sum of money every few weeks or a long-term commitment). Unfortunately, many falsies on the market are pretty intimidating—they’re often over-the-top dramatic or look like they’re better suited for an elaborate costume, rather than an everyday look.
The good news is that it’s actually easier than you think to fake a full set of lashes with falsies that look pretty convincing. These natural-looking faux lashes are subtle enough to mimic the look of lashes you could’ve been born with, but add enough length and volume to make a visible difference. While I’m all about pronounced lashes for a glammed-out vibe, they don’t always make sense for the office, brunch or first dates. If you’re in the market for some realistic (and super convincing) falsies that will fool everyone you were born with it, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pairs to try for yourself.
