If you’ve ever ventured into the world of false lashes, you know all too well the challenges of applying them. The traditional glue on strips look gorgeous if you can get them right, but even a seasoned pro might not be able to get them even.
Fake Lashes Are A Mess
Not to mention, the glue is messy, it can get everywhere messing up your perfect makeup, get in your eye (ouch!), and taking them off can be painful. Not to mention, you might lose a few lashes in the process.
Enter magnetic lashes – weren’t these a genius invention!? If you’re scrolling through Instagram frequently you’ve probably noticed there are a ton of different brands out there so it’s hard to know which one is best and which are the easiest to apply (those tutorials always make it look easy, but let’s be real here!).
Two Ways To Apply
One of the greatest things about magnetic lashes is that there are actually two methods for applying them; you can attach with two magnetic strips that snap over the lash line, or you can use a magnetic liner prior to attaching the lash. Cool, right!?
Here are some of the best magnetic lashes on the market that are also the easiest to apply:
We bet you didn’t see this one coming! These $3.95 lashes can not only be found at Wal-Mart, but YouTubers are raving over how easy the application is on these. You will have to purchase the magnetic liner separately, but these will stay secured and feel lightweight. What else could we expect from one of the biggest and oldest names in the lash game?
This has been known as the best magnetic lash kit for beginners. This is another magnetic liner option, and while the price might be a bit harder to digest ($65), MoxieLash guarantees you’ll get 30 wears out of this set (note, you will have to use proper application and storage).
The Sassy Lash features mid-level dramatic volume and is ideally made for those with deep-set, hooded, almond, or mono-lid eye shapes. It’s safe, fast-drying and it comes with pre-moistened eyeliner removal swabs – brilliant!
Another trusted name in the eyelash world, Ardell always delivers a quality product and these lashes mimic their tried-and-true strip lash look (think long and fluttery). This option comes with the magnets built into the strips. You simply line the top side of your lash with one strip and apply the other just below your top lash and let them click together like a sandwich. At $6.29, who wouldn’t want to test these out?
If you’ve been fascinated but cautious about dipping your toe into the magnetic lash world, you can confidently wade in with these. ProMagnetic makes a natural-looking lash so you don’t look like you just came from a Lady Gaga video shoot.
This is another magnetic eyeliner style and the box says application happens in five minutes (we found it to be less, but you do have to let the liner dry adequately).
For you sensitive-eyed beauties, sometimes it can be a challenge to find products that won’t irritate your peepers. LashLiner’s magnetic liner is latex-free, gluten-free, and paraben-free, not to mention vegan, so they won’t bug your eyes.
Applying magnetic lashes doesn’t need to be as intimidating as it looks. The best way to learn is just to dive in and try them out. You may find a brand that works perfectly for you and you’ll have the application time down, stat.
