False Lashes

False lashes remain popular among those with sparse natural lashes or with women who simply want to create different looks. They can be used for very natural, glamorous or exotic looks.

Lashes come in singles or in strips. Prices range from low to high, so most women can find lashes within their budget. Popular brands include Ardell, Andrea and MAC, but there are several other brands to choose from. They are available at many drug stores, department stores, cosmetics stores, or online.

Lash Adhesives

Some false lashes come with a small container of eyelash glue to apply the lashes. There are also several adhesives available on the market. DUO remains a popular brand. It comes in black or a white that becomes transparent when dried. Many lash glues contain latex, which is problematic for those with allergies to the substance. For those with allergies, choose a product like DUOŽ Brush On Striplash Adhesive or DUOŽ Individual Lash Adhesive, neither of which contain latex.

Applying the LashesRe-using False Lashes

If properly cared for, false lashes may be used several times. Remove them gently by pinching the outside lashes between fingers and gently pulling inward, toward the inner eye. Glue can be removed by simply pulling it off. Always handle lash strips carefully so they can be re-used.

Though false lashes can be tricky to apply at first, they offer the opportunity to create many different looks. They also help women who want longer, fuller lashes. And with a little practice, applying them becomes easier.
