I have two words for you: magnetic eyelashes. I love big dramatic lashes, whether I get them from mascara or falsies. But when it comes to convenience, magnetic eyelashes are the way to go. Let’s talk about why magnetic lashes are a great option, then watch me apply and remove my magnetic eyelashes in real-time in the video below!

Mascara vs. Falsies vs. Magnetic Eyelashes
Of course, mascara is the go-to, fairly easy option when brightening your eyes by accentuating your eyelashes. Although, even with a steady hand, applying mascara can get a little messy. Have you ever sneezed right after brushing on a fresh coat of mascara? Yeah, that’ll make you look like you tried to use mascara as an undereye concealer. Mascara can volumize and lengthen your lashes, but it can’t give you the drama fake lashes can.
False lashes that are applied with glue take some getting used to and usually a few attempts to get them just right. I’ve been applying my own false lashes for years, and still mess them up once in a while. Prior to that, I insisted that my mom did them, I didn’t even want to attempt to do them myself! The downsides are obvious, you can get glue where you don’t want it and even accidentally glue your eyes shut. I’ve done that more times than I’d like to admit!
Then there is the removal of false lashes, it isn’t supposed to be painful but it can sting just a little bit. Speaking of removal, taking off plain old mascara can be quite a chore too. Using a gentle makeup remover or oil is key and will make it easier, but it will still take some time.
Application and Removal of Magnetic Eyelashes
Magnetic eyelashes give you the look of false eyelashes or a really great mascara without all of the fuss. Like false lashes or even winged eyeliner, applying magnetic lashes takes some practice. The first time I attempted to apply these it was a disaster! With very little practice though, I was able to get these on easily and pretty quickly. In the video below, I show myself applying them in real-time. I have the magnetic eyelashes applied to both of my eyes in under 2 minutes.
Taking them off is a cinch too. Gently slide them off your lashes and that’s it! No tugging, pulling or wiping. Once you slide them off, they can be put in their case for safekeeping until you’re ready to apply them again.
