Gold Eyelashes Are Better

Not all false lashes are meant to simply enhance! These ones, for example, are extremely fun and show you have no intention whatsoever of looking au naturel. Read on to discover some pairs you might be up for, even if you think they're not for you.

Most false eyelashes are meant to inspire a level of admiration bordering on disbelief. They intend to provoke the exclamation, "My, what thick eyelashes you have!" followed closely by the hushed follow-up question, "But are they real...?" These, however, are not those lashes. These lashes are designed to announce your presence the second you enter the room—perhaps even before you get through the doorway, if they're long enough.

So apply a metallic, colored, textured, or feathered pair on occasions when you fully intend on capturing people's attention—say, a friend's housewarming barbecue or front row at your favorite band's next show. Our point is: You don't have to wait for Halloween or a costume party to try statment falsies, you just need a healthy dose of confidence—and maybe an emergency tube of lash glue in your purse, just in case.
