Odds are that you’ve dealt with a pair of fake eyelashes that were super uncomfortable. All you wanted to do all night was just rip them off! Taking them off at the end of the night was the best feeling ever. But does this have to be your reality? Absolutely not. Fake eyelashes do not have to be uncomfortable! In fact, there are types out there that are so comfortable that you’ll forget you’re wearing them at all – you just have to find them. Thankfully, we are here to tell you which fake eyelashes are comfortable enough to wear all day long:
Silk Fake Lashes
The type of false lashes that gets our vote for the “number one most comfortable eyelashes” are definitely silk lashes. Silk lashes are a relatively new arrival on the false eyelash scene and we can say that they are what we’ve been waiting for. Silk lashes are super soft and lightweight. They are comfortable enough to wear all day every day. Plus, this is totally possible with high-quality silk lashes that are able to be reused up to 15 times! Silk lashes are a world above your typical synthetic plastic fake lashes, and they not only feel natural, but they look natural too. All of this combined makes them a great product option for beginners or women looking for understated false lashes that they can wear all around town.
Faux-Mink Fake Lashes
Faux-mink fake lashes are also super comfortable, although slightly less so than silk lashes. This is because mink tends to be thicker and heavier than silk. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially when you are looking for a bigger and bolder look, it is something to be aware of if you are looking to wear them all day. They might get a little bit heavy, especially if they are long and voluminous. We love the look of faux-mink lashes because they are super shiny and soft but still give your real lashes a big boost. They may not look as natural as silk fake lashes, but some people love the bolder look! We definitely recommend faux-mink lashes as opposed to real mink lashes because they aren’t vegan-friendly. Thankfully, high-quality faux-mink lashes rival the real deal and are a great option for women looking to give their real lashes a major boost.
Fake Lashes With a Cotton Band
We have talked a little about the material of the actual lashes and how that relates to comfort, but we haven’t talked about the part that actually touches your eye – the band. Some bands on false lashes can be really stiff and uncomfortable. Worse yet, some of them can be really irritating for those with sensitive eyes or those who wear contact lenses. This is why we love bands that are made from cotton because they are super soft, bendy, and won’t irritate your eyes! This type of band is also ideal for women who have monolids because it won’t be super uncomfortable constantly hitting your eyelid. Always make sure to measure and cut your new false lashes before wearing them so that you can get the most comfortable fit possible.
Short Fake Lashes
This might go without saying, but short fake lashes are more comfortable than their long and dramatic counterparts. This is because they are lighter and don’t drag your eyelid down from the weight. In fact, short lashes that are around 7 millimeters long are ideal and you probably won’t even notice that you’re wearing them! Meanwhile, everyone around you will be trying to guess whether your lashes are real or not. So if you love false lashes but also want something subtle and comfortable, shorter falsies are the way to go!
Individual Fake Lashes
Finally, individual fake lashes are also pretty comfortable if applied properly. This is because they are smaller sections of lashes that are glued into the lash line. You have more control over the placement and the length of these smaller sections – and this can be a good thing as it relates to the comfort factor. You can just place a few of them on the outside of your eye for a winged look or use them to fill in sparse areas within your natural lashes. No matter the case, these are great options for people looking for light and natural fake lashes that won’t drag your lids down.
Maybe in the old days, false lashes weren’t comfortable – but with new types and new technologies, those days are definitely in the past. So if you are worried about the comfort factor when it comes to falsies, try out these ones first. You will be pleasantly surprised by how natural they feel on your eye while not dragging your lid down, causing irritation, or flapping all over the place.
