Lashes to Fall for.
We all love a full and luscious set of lashes. It takes a look from lovely to “Who the hell do you think you are?” in a second. Don’t act like you don’t love it. There is nothing better than a set of lashes that could blow away a Texas tumbleweed, but it is super important to know which lashes to get and what the fullness means. LUXYMOM® went on the Great Lash Hunt and found our top five lashes that will have you framing those baby blues and flashing those beautiful browns in no time!
Sometimes it can be a little bit of a hassle to wear falsies. For those that wish to endeavor on this journey, it is important start at the beginning to ensure you are set up for success.
The glue is the foundation on which we set our eye butterflies. A long time go-to in the beauty community is the Kiss I-Envy Super Strong Hold eyelash adhesive in black. It works to keep lashes from dislodging in the corners.
Always measure your eye to the lash and cut from the outside in, never from the inside out. Bend and curve the lash to your eye shape to help mold the lash to sit on the lash line correctly and the glue to spread evenly. Finally, before applying lashes, put on your mascara. Once you place the lashes, use lash extension tweezers, or pinch and clamp your natural lashes to your falsies for a cohesive lash line.
Now onto the star, the eye butterflies! First up we have100% Vegan, Lily Lashes. This fantastic line has falsies ranging from premium synthetic to 3D Mink and you can buy in single sets and collections.
A help tool on their website breaks down lashes for eye shape, allowing beginners to find lashes suitable to their face and eyes easily. They also have a short quiz you can take to find your ideal lash if you do not know your eye shape or really are starting out in the wonderful world of lashes and need a little help.
Next, we have Huda Beauty Lashes. This is one of the most well-known brands in the beauty community and amongst celebrities. Amazing quality and beautiful, these lashes are reusable and stackable. With a comfortable lash band, these lovelies are wonderful on the eye and are not heavy at all. A true must have in your kit for the holiday season.
House of Lashes
Looking for a natural look with a little extra zing? You need House of Lashes. This is a fantastic lash for beginners, as the lashes tend to not be so full and they are the first to include a multi-layer 3-in-1 lash. What does that mean? This means there are three different lash lengths that are tapered at the ends to blend with your natural lashes and can be re-used up to 15 times.
Let us not forget the fabulous tried and true Ardell “Wispies”. Affordable, bold, and reusable, these little beauties are in every woman’s makeup drawers. The tapered ends of the lashes keep the blunt and off-putting look of harsh falsies at bay and you get to keep your eye butterflies in place on a budget. These are great for everyday affordable lash wear.
Finally, it is time to break out the big guns, Velour lashes. These beauties are made for the lady with something to say with her eyes, and not with her words. With titles like “Fluff’N Thick” and “Momma Knows Best,” these are not for the grocery store. I mean, maybe they are – do your thing, mama knows best, right? Get your Cocoa Puffs with a little more bounce in your step.
Winner of Allure the Best of Beauty 2020 award, these lashes are handcrafted and worth the extra penny. Velour lashes are made from naturally shredded recycled mink hair and are hypoallergenic and sterilized so the most sensitive eyes can enjoy the glam.
There you have it, ladies. We are ready to accessorize our eyes with fabulous lashes ranging from va-va voom to just a little mystery. Lashes really pull in a look and create drama – especially since we are wearing masks most of the time. So, why not show off your beautiful browns or gorgeous greens!
