The simple answer is - yes, you absolutely can wear false eyelashes with glasses. In fact, many glasses wearers find that their mascara rubs off on the lenses, and so false eyelashes help to eliminate this issue. Rather than applying multiple coats of mascara in the mornings and dealing with smudges all day long, consider investing in a beautiful set of false eyelashes.
However, it’s crucial that you choose the correct style and size of false eyelashes as the wrong pair of false eyelashes can drive you crazy if the lashes are too long/thick and are getting battered against the lenses or worse, getting crushed!
So what can you do? Well, you can pick the perfect set of lashes for your glasses. Here are some of our top tips when doing this:
Opt for shorter, less dramatic lashes
Our first recommendation and probably the most important is to opt for short falsies that are short enough to not come into contact with your glasses.
If you have chosen lashes that are a little too long and they are hitting your lenses, gently curl the lashes to naturally help them move back from your glasses.
Opt for less dense lashes
Secondly, you want to go for less dense lashes. Unless you’re getting ready for a glam night out or photo op, you don’t actually need a lash band that holds thousands of lash fibres. Remember, your goal is eyelash enhancement; you’ll still get a super noticeable look with a lash band that has less fibres.
Opt for curly lashes
The curlier the lashes, the less likely they are to hit your lenses, so it’s wise to go for dramatically curled falsies that point upward instead of outward.
As mentioned above, if the lashes are still too long, you can manually curl them with an eyelash curler.
We also recommend applying one coat of mascara to your natural lashes before applying your falsies. This will minimise the risk of creating pesky mascara stains on your lenses and will also help your falsies to last longer. If you do feel the urge to apply mascara to your false lashes, wait until they are completely dry before wearing your glasses.
Can I Wear Glasses While Applying False Eyelashes?
Another common question and although it may initially seem a bit tricky, the answer is yes! Simply perch your glasses on the end of your nose and apply your lashes using a mirror. You should be able to see the lash band and your lash line clearly and be able to apply your lashes easily.
