Not all of us were blessed with Bambi lashes, so it's only natural that we'd look for something a little more...synthetic to enhance our gaze. Keep on scrolling to find our favorites in the falsie game, whether you're looking for a spidery '60s look or some born-with-it natural extensions.
The bonus of buying individual lashes is that you can mix-and-match lengths and tweak them as you go. This set is super affordable for beginners, if you need an easy starter kit for practicing.
To apply, prep a clean face by adding foundation and eyeliner first. Squeeze a dot of lash glue onto a non-absorbent surface like aluminum foil and dip the ends of the individual hairs into it with tweezers. Attach the lashes to the upper lash line, working from the middle of the lid outwards.
