Best False Lashes for beginners Overall 

#1 Ardel Faux Mink Wispies

I choose this Amazing Mink Wispies Set of Fake Lashes by Ardell as the TOP#1 false eyelashes selection for beginners,

because I love the model and design of the lashes suitable for all the eye shapes, and easy to control!

Also, it came in a 4-pack set for a super reasonable price (less than $13, but you can check the price here)

Which makes having a high-quality pair of lashes super affordable!

And they are really high quality, super soft, and natural feeling lash hairs, with a thin strip/band (which I love!! I hate thick strip eyelashes, they are just the worst).

I think they are perfect for beginners because they are in a medium-size super convenient for starters.

Best False Lashes for every day

#2 Newcally False Eyelashes Natural Soft

Let’s be honest, we love false lashes, and we want to use them every day!

It is super possible with these amazing false lashes at a super affordable price with excellent quality and 10 pairs set! I already tried this product myself and loved them.  

This was a super random purchase that I did on Amazon, that end pretty well!

I think this is a gold piece hide in the searches of Amazon, which I have to share with others FOR SURE! I bought it based on the reviews and the price, and I will definitely rebuy them.

They are about $1 per pair! And they are soft, natural, and just the perfect size.

I recommend them for every day because the package has 10 pairs of lashes (check the price here) that will be good for 10 days, at least!

Because even if they don’t say reusable, I personally reuse them 2-3 times per pair if I didn’t apply mascara and took care of them.

So basically, you will have lashes for all month with this set!

Best Reusable False Lashes

#3 BEPHOLAN 3D reusable Mink Lashes

Yes! There are Reusable False lashes that usually are pricey and it’s okay because it is worth the price.

But THIS pair of reusable lashes are the exception!

They are reusable and CHEAP (check the price here)

They come with more quality than regular lashes, and with the right cleaning routine, you can reuse your lashes up to 30 times! 

What I liked about these lashes is that they have a clear band but thick enough to handle the 3D and 5D effect that it has.

What do 5D false lashes mean?

This means that the fake eyelashes are fluffy, with different lengths and hair directions that make them more natural and more bold.

Pro tip: After using your lashes soak them in makeup remover and gently remove the glue and mascara of it, after that take a spully and shape them and place them again in their package to maintain the curved shape properly.

Best Fake Lashes for Hooded Eyes

#5 KISS ever ez Lashes no. 11

Like most of you know (or probably not haha), I have Hooded Eyes (extra skin dropping from the brow bone and small-to-no lid), and I have a popular post: How to apply eyeshadow for Hooded Eyes. 

And this is the second part. After doing my eyeshadows, I almost always next apply my false lashes!

And the best lashes for hooded eyes have a natural-looking, perfect medium size, and of course, a clear strip like this set by Kiss.

The clear band is ESSENTIAL for Hooded eyes.

Because we want to show our small lid as much as possible when we open our eyes,

and with a black thick strip on false lashes, the strip hides even more the eyelid, and that makes your hooded eye look even more hooded.

Best Fake EyeLashes glue 

DUO Brush-On Lash Adhesive

There are different types of glues. Some have latex; others are black or clear. 

What I prefer when I’m selecting a false lashes glue is that it drys clear instead of black. 

So if I made a Mistake, it is not showing it. And this Clear eyelashes glue by DUO is the king!

Because it also came with a built-in brush applicator that makes everything so much easier.

What about no-glue fake eyelashes?

Yes! Magnetic False Lashes are a type of lashes that, with a small magnetic strip, stick to your natural lashes, and there’s no need for glue.

In general, I don’t recommend Magnetic lashes for beginners

but check this comparison video of Regular band false lashes VS magnetic Lashes.

How to put on false lashes for beginners? 

Take your Strip false lashes, and apply a small amount of false lashes glue. Wait 30-60 seconds for the glue to get sticky.

With a false lash applicator or your hands, apply it to your natural lash line, starting with the outer corner to the inner corner. 

Here’s a Full False Lashes Tutorial

Pro Tip: waiting 30-60 seconds or more depending on the amount of lash glue is KEY to apply your false lashes easily. 


I’m using this drugstore glue by Kiss that I’ve loved lately.

It comes with a small applicator making it so much easier to use even directly to the eyes. 

Here’s the exact amount of lash glue that I often use. 

How to apply false eyelashes


These False lashes hack needs to be a step because it is just definitive for ruining your false lashes application or the perfect and easy application. 

The glue drys a little bit and becomes sticky, and that’s what we want!

Once we have this texture is super easy to set it with your eyes.

Otherwise, the glue is still super liquid, and it goes all over the eyelids, and the lashes won’t stick on your eyes.


To find the right spot to place your false lashes, you need to put it in your eyelid skin but almost trying to get to your natural lash line. 

DON’T apply the strip false lashes on your natural lashes. The strip needs to stick on your eyelid, not in your lashes. 

Place them first on the outer corner and keep placing them until all the strip sticks on the lash line. 

Pro Tip: with your finger, try to lift the false lashes upwards and give them the right direction. If you skip this step, you will probably get dropped lashes. 


There are a couple of tips you need to do for a more natural look if you see you need them. 

Tip #1: Curl your lashes after application, so all the lashes natural and “fake” will have the same curvature.

Tip #2. Use your fingers or False lashes applicator to put them together upwards direction

Tip #3. Apply a small coat of Mascara (but remember to clean your false lashes after use for more uses)

Frequently Asked Questions about Fake Eyelashes

What are the best and easiest false eyelashes? 

The easiest false lashes are the strip/band lashes instead of the magnetic or the individual. 

The strip false lashes are more comfortable to manage and easy to apply for beginners. 

Even better is the strip/band is clear or transparent.

Should you put false eyelashes on first?

This can be optional. If you are doing natural-looking everyday makeup, your lashes definitely can be first. 

But in most cases, it is ideal for applying your false lashes at the end of the Makeup look.

Because that way, you are freer to play with eyeshadow, eyeliner, and more without big fake lashes in your way.

Can you wear fake lashes every day?

Yes, you can wear fake lashes every day, make sure you change your lashes every day, clean them, and apply a new amount of glue. 

This talking about not-permanently fake lashes.

For permanent false lashes, you don’t need this. 

The permanent lashes have a permanent glue that will last between 1-3 weeks. 

How do I choose false eyelashes?

First, you need to select the right size. Usually, a Medium size of lashes will be suitable for the majority of the eyes.

However, it is an option to seek a larger or smaller pair. 

Second, select if you want natural-looking “fake” lashes or more dramatic bold lashes. 

After that, select base your needs.

 If you are using false lashes every day, you should buy a package of different pairs that are reusable. 

If you are seeking false lashes for some days that you want to wear them with produced Makeup.

Seek for a single reusable false lashes pair or a set. 

Pro Tip: Always go for more natural hairs, like human hair false lashes and avoid the plastic and static lashes. 

How long do false lashes last?

This depends on the lashes, most of them (without the package saying it) last 2-5 times.

But there are others that are entirely reusable and last up to 30 times. 

Are magnetic lashes better than glue? or Viceversa

The best way to start with false eyelashes is with glue eyelashes.

However, magnetic lashes are also a great option to try for beginners.

Especially if you have problems putting your eyelashes in place because magnetic eyelashes are easier to put on the eyes.

The only part that makes me prefer glue eyelashes for beginners is

that with magnetic glue you need to be also good at either applying eyeliner (magnetic eyeliner) or handling two pairs of eyelashes at the same time.

For those magnetic eyelashes that require two lashes with magnets in order to be applied on the natural lashes.

If you feel like eyeliner is not a problem for you, I highly recommend this magnetic eyelashes and eyeliner kit.

It’s super easy to just do your eyeliner as usual and then plop in your false lashes in seconds.

And in case you were wondering, they stay in place all day!

Also, check my complete tutorial with the step-by-step guide for magnetic eyelashes.

  1. For individual false eyelashes, position each lash lace as close as you can to your eyelash line and secure it in place by pushing down the lash from the outside of your eye. To balance the application, start from the center of your eyelash, individually attaching the fillers and then move to the corners of the eye.

    It is very nice to visit your blog. I love your step by step tips.

  2. Do you apply the flash lashes underneath or on top of real lashes? I’ve seen both online. I have trouble getting anything close to my eyes w/o blinking especially underneath, but really want to try fake lashes since mine are short & thin. Ty!

    1. Hi Sarah! I apply the lashes on top of the natural lashes. To be honest, I wouldn’t say I like the underneath technique.
      I know it looks more natural because your real lashes cover the fake ones and are less notorious, but I don’t like them and do not recommend them because they feel heavy on the eye. I encourage you to try both techniques and see how you feel.
      Let me know how that went
