These Falsies Are So Good You'll Forget How Much You Miss Your Lash Extensions

Even though I gave up my lash-extension habit years ago, I sometimes miss the extra-long, extra-fluttery results I'd get. And while I can't create the exact magic at home, there are some impressive, extension-esque options that can really hold their own. Mascara, of course, is one of our all-time-favorite ways to enhance our lashes, but if you're looking for a little extra oomph, false eyelashes can be an excellent way to go, too. That said, only the very best eyelashes truly mimic professional lash extensions, so it's important to be choosy while shopping. Luckily, many of the best brands offer tons of styles and lengths, so you can find a vibe that meshes with your beauty aesthetic.

We know there's a surplus of options on the market to choose from, so we lent a helping hand by spilling the beans on our favorite false eyelashes. Keep scrolling for the best options money can buy.

Beauty Director

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
