You might think that false eyelashes are only for special occasions like galas, weddings, or parties. But what if we told you that you could actually wear fake eyelashes every day? It’s true – you really can wear fake eyelashes every day without looking too over-the-top. Thankfully, there are tons of different lash styles out there that can help you achieve your perfect low-key lash look without being too much. And thanks to reusable fake eyelashes, it’s no longer a financial burden for you to actually wear false lashes every day of the week because you can reuse the same pair for up to two weeks!  

Can You Wear Fake Eyelashes Every Day?

In the old days, fake eyelashes were only reserved for events or nights out on the town. In 2020, however, it’s totally possible for you to wear fake eyelashes every single day no matter if you’re heading out to run some errands, going to brunch with a friend, or getting drinks with a business associate. If you are worried about any effect that frequent use of fake eyelashes might have on your actual eye – there’s no reason to fret. When used and removed properly, fake eyelashes are totally gentle and safe enough to be worn every day – even if you are wearing contacts!

What Types of Eyelashes Can Be Worn Every Day?

There are many different types of fake eyelashes that you might want to wear. By far the most popular type of fake eyelashes is strip lashes. These lashes are all attached to a single strip that extends across the entire length of your eye. In fact, you might have to trim the lashes to fit your eye size before you wear them for the first time. Strip lashes can be made out of a variety of different materials ranging from cheap plastic to luxury silk and faux-mink fibers. The lash material that you choose is totally up to you, but if you are looking for a high-quality product that will look good and last for multiple wears, then you definitely need to go with silk or mink instead of the cheap plastic stuff. Both of these varieties are still very affordable and actually might be more worthwhile financially since you can get more uses out of them than you can with the cheap plastic ones that fall apart after just one use.

How Can You Make Fake Eyelashes Last Longer?

That being said, even the highest quality fake eyelashes will not last very long if you do not take care of them properly! You may have to put in a bit more maintenance for these lashes but it will totally be worth it if you are able to extend their use and wear them for up to two weeks. Here are some general tips that you should follow if you are looking to make your silk or mink fake lashes last as long as possible:

  • Remove them gently, starting with the corners
  • Remove any leftover adhesive from the lash strip
  • Don’t apply makeup directly on or near the lashes
  • Avoid waterproof makeup near your lashes
  • If necessary, clean your fake lashes in a mixture of gentle soap and warm water
  • Store your lashes in the original case to keep them clean and dry.

The Best Fake Eyelashes for Everyday Use

It might take some trial and error for you to find the perfect pair of fake lashes that are subtle enough to wear every day but are still enough to actually enhance your look. For everyday use, we recommend going with shorter everyday lashes that are no longer than 7 millimeters long. You will want a pair that not only looks natural but also feels natural since you will be wearing them for hours at a time. We recommend going with a pair of fake lashes that have a cotton band since it’s super light, comfortable, and flexible enough to fit every eye shape. When it comes to material, we are totally obsessed with Korean silk fibers that are soft, fluffy, and realistic. When considering a pair of lashes, make sure to not only check out the model before-and-after pictures but also look at the reviews to see real-life results from people who aren’t models being made over by a makeup artist. Reviews are a really good indication of the quality of the lashes, the durability, and the customer service of the company.

Overall, if you want to wear fake lashes every day – then go for it! It’s totally doable once you find the right pair that fits your look and won’t break the bank. This simple change in your daily makeup routine can really make a big difference in your look and help you feel confident every day with amazing lashes.
