While a good mascara is priceless, 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 an effortless, “I woke up like this” lash without much effort. However, extensions and lifts are not only costly, but they also mean you have to be extra careful with cleansing and say goodbye to both oil cleansers and mascara—two products I, for one, simply cannot live without. 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 amazing once they’re fully secured for the night if you’re not a beauty pro, the process of applying them can be downright arduous. If it’s not done correctly, you run the risk of having to check their status in your compact approximately every 10 minutes to ensure they’re still holding on. Regardless of the route you choose, below we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite user-friendly false eyelashes designed specifically for beginners.
