FAQs About False Eyelashes


If you’re new to the world of falsies, it can be difficult to know where to start. Firstly, there are a whole host of styles to choose from, and you’ll also have to consider your false eyelashes’ aftercare too, to make sure they last as long as possible. 

Wearing false eyelashes doesn’t need to be crazy-confusing or complicated! That’s why we’ve answered some of your burning questions about falsies to help simplify the process.

1. Which false eyelashes are the best for my eye shape?

Finding the right false lashes for your eye shape can be a challenge, but if you get it right it can make your eye makeup look that little bit more flawless. 

First, you’ll need to define your eye shape, and there six main types: 

  1. Almond eyes
  2. Wide set eyes
  3. Protruding eyes
  4. Hooded eyes
  5. Closet set/upturned eyes
  6. Downturned eyes

There’s also a wide range of eyelash styles to choose from, including flared eyelashes, criss cross eyelashes and many more. However, some of these styles are better suited to some eye shapes than others.

Which are the best false eyelashes for small eyes?

If you’ve got small eyes, it’s best to avoid heavy, dramatic eyes that will make your eyes look even smaller. 

We recommend opting for more sparse, light false eyelashes, as this will help to open-up small eyes without looking too much. 



Which are the best false eyelashes for hooded eyes?

For those with hooded eyes, finding false eyelashes that will suit your eye shape can be slightly more challenging. It’s important to avoid lashes with too much volume, as this can make eyes look overtly dark and droopy.

Instead, opting for flared, demi-wispy lashes will help to lift hooded eyes and make them look more doe-like.  

2. What’s the best way to care for false eyelashes?

False eyelashes can be made from a wide range of materials, including synthetic fibres, mink fur and human hair. The way you care for your false eyelashes will largely depend on the materials they’re made from. 

For example, synthetic eyelashes are usually more robust than human hair false eyelashes. Whereas, you’ll need to use gentle cleaners and makeup removers with mink false eyelashes so that they don’t get damaged. 

As a general rule of thumb, be as gentle with your lashes as possible and they’ll last a lifetime. 

3. How to remove false eyelashes

We all know the struggle of removing your eye makeup after a long day, but it’s important to do this in the right way to keep your lashes looking fresh, and skin in top shape.

We recommend using micellar water to gently dissolve your lash glue and remove your falsies at the end of the day. Once you’ve removed them, make sure to clean the lash fibres with micellar water too to remove any stubborn makeup.

4. Is it best to put on false eyelashes before or after makeup?

It’s up to you! If you struggle with placing your false lashes, it might be best to put them on before you start your eye makeup. Whereas, if you’re an experienced lash-wearer, putting your lashes on after your makeup is also a great option. 

5. How to wear false eyelashes and glasses

Yes! You can easily wear false eyelashes with glasses. However, you’ll just have to select a style that will make this a comfortable experience. 

Glasses-wearers should opt for short false eyelashes so that they don’t press against the lenses. It’s also best to avoid wearing mascara as this can also make a mess on glasses lenses.
