These Natural-Looking False Lashes Are the Perfect Way to Hide Patchy Extensions

As someone who has dead-straight, relatively stumpy eyelashes, I have tried just about every single lash treatment and product under the sun. And as much as I love the look of long, fluttery lashes, I also really appreciate the beauty of more natural-looking lashes. It is because of my love for natural-looking lashes that I often find myself in an eyelash rut.

The minute I start to embrace my natural lashes with little more than a coating of mascara, I swear that I will never again opt for costly extensions or lifts. However, as soon as I do have a perm or extensions, I'm so struck by how put-together and wide-eyed I look with minimal effort and I insist that my natural lashes needn't be seen by another soul for the rest of my life. However, the fact that lash treatments are just so good does have its downfalls. The issues arise mainly when the treatments start to wear.

In usual circumstances, the minute that lash extensions start to fall out and become patchy, it makes sense to book straight back in for either a removal or infills. However, right now, with salons far and wide closed, lash aficionados across the country are at a bit of a loss about what to do with their patchy lashes. And trust me—I know exactly how you feel.

Luckily, as lash treatments have come on leaps and bounds in the last few years, so too have the designs of false lashes. Whereas falsies of yesteryear were big, bold and dramatic, nowadays, easy-to-apply, natural-looking designs make false lashes a very real everyday option. Still not convinced? Keep scrolling for all of the natural-looking designs to make your lashes look like yours, just a little better.
