While a good mascara is an essential component to luxe lashes, there’s no denying that a set of false lashes is downright transformational. Nowadays, there are plenty of ways to enhance your lashes without relying on mascara to do the trick. From lash lifts to extensions, these beauty services give you natural-looking lashes without much effort (though they can be pricey, of course). Then you have to consider the vast amount of lash options to choose from to best false eyelash choice for you and the occasion. There are synthetic and natural lashes, as well as a wide range of different sizes and styles. For instance, while you may want to go full-on glam for a night out with the girls, you may prefer a more deceptively “natural” look for your cousin’s wedding.

While falsies look incredible once they’re fully set in place if you’re not a professional makeup artist (and at least haven’t had much practice), the process of applying them can be super frustrating. If the lashes do not adhere to your natural lashline correctly, you run the risk of having to check their status every five minutes or so to make sure they’re still intact. The best way to teach yourself how to apply lashes like a pro? Eyelash starter kits. These kits come with everything you need to master the art of falsies without losing your sanity in the process.
