The Best Eyelashes for Every Occasion

What makes LOVESEEN eyelashes so iconic? They are lightweight, easy to paste, and created by fashion designer Jenna Lyons and makeup artist Troi Ollivierre. Brian Underwood, beauty director of O, The Oprah Magazine, and Cat Bowen, parenting editor, both attest to the incredible quality of this brand. LOVESEEN eyelashes have the look and feel of mink extensions but are made of soft 100% synthetic fibers attached to a comfortable cotton band. Available in four different styles, Lilly Lashes Lite synthetic mink eyelashes are great because of their super soft hair and strong band.

Mykonos style is perfect for almond-shaped eyes while Miami style complements most eye shapes. Melanie Rud, a Chicago-based writer with 10 years of experience covering beauty topics, recommends Byrdie skincare products. To make it easier to apply false eyelashes, look for a set with an adhesive strip on the back. Consider the materials with which it is made and the sparkle depending on the type of look you are looking for.

You don't have to break the bank to find a good set of false eyelashes. Who What Wear also chose Allura Lite eyelashes from House of Lashes. This super soft option is made of silk and is totally versatile, wearable, and dramatic enough to be worth it. It comes with an applicator tool and a contour tray included to make your application easier than ever.

Ardell eyelashes are arguably the most loved drugstore eyelash brand in history. The 120 lashes blend with the existing bangs, rather than covering it, providing a natural yet beautiful end result. If your natural eyelashes are shorter, opt for a mid-length, layered style that lengthens your natural eyelashes and adds a special touch thanks to its subtly flared shape. The tips are also tapered, ensuring that they blend perfectly.

Black Magic Carnival Trinidad Lashes from UOMA Beauty feature a 3D color mix of bold black and bright purple eyelashes for a dramatic and bulky look. Colored Raine's ultra-lengthening set is vegan synthetic mink and 100% handmade with up to 15 applications per set.
