False eyelashes are a relatively inexpensive way to add impact and glamor to your look. Eyelashes are available in a range of prices, from the very expensive to the very cheap. When choosing the best cheap eyelashes, don't buy the cheapest you can find, and choose a color and style according to the look you want to achieve.
If you are looking to buy cheap eyelashes, then you want to buy them from a store rather than a salon. Salon lashes, although usually very good quality, are relatively expensive, and there is also a fee to have the lashes applied. Do not buy your lashes from very cheap stores, such as a dollar store, however, as these lashes are usually of an inferior quality. Lower-quality lashes, while they may seem like a good buy at first, are often cut in straight lines and result in a very obvious, cheap, fake look.
The cheapest lashes also often do not adhere very well to your eyelids. They tend to shed, leaving you with loose lashes all over your face. These lashes may also irritate the skin around your eye. Opt for lashes from retail or drug stores, which tend to be of a decent quality while still being relatively cheap. A number of well-known makeup brands have a range of cheap eyelashes, so choose one of these because the quality tends to be reliable.
Cheap eyelashes are available in different colors, so choose a set based on what effect you want to achieve. If you want the lashes to look natural, choose a color slightly darker than your own, or if you can't find a color that matches, black is a good all-round option. Many brands also sell more glamorous but still cheap versions with feathers, rhinestones, and glitter in numerous vibrant shades.
Decide on the length and fullness that you want to achieve. Cheap eyelashes come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses, and styles. If your lashes are quite thin and sparse, look for lashes that have crisscross patterns because they will make your eyelashes look much fuller. When you want your lashes to look natural, but more thick and full, choose a length that is similar to your own, or feathered, so that they will blend in well with your own lashes.
For a more dramatic look, choose longer lashes. Keep in mind that you can always trim the lashes, so don't worry if you get them home and they turn out to be too long. Cheap eyelashes are available in either full strips that you lay over your eyelids or inserts that you place separately along your lash line. If you do not wear false lashes often, it is best to choose a strip because it is much easier and quicker to apply.
