Beautiful, long eyelashes can instantly draw attention to the eye and add dramatise and glamourise your look. Since we're not all blessed with naturally fabulous lashes, the fake alternative is often the way to go.
Whether you're after a seriously glamorous party style, or are just desperate to fill out your own sparse lashes, here are some of the best false ones on the market.
These lash kits are great for those times when you need to glam up or change your look whilst out and about. Each kit comes in a handy box, with a pair of tweezers, adhesive and two pairs of lashes, as well as step-by-step instructions. Mister Mascara supply everything from full lashes and spiky lashes for nights out, to individual lash sets for those who prefer a more natural look. And there are coloured, and bedazzled sets for when you want to make a statement. Plus the website has useful videos for novices on how to apply. Prices start from £9.86.
With a vast range of false lashes, including celebrity offerings, Eyelure lashes are not only great value, but they're widely available. There are lashes to lengthen, texture, volumise and define, and an excellent range of dramatic and bold lash kits for party girls. Check out the Party Perfect range for lashes with added sparkle, or the bold Hed Kandi range for a night out. Prices start from as little as £3.50.
We Are Faux
Stocking everything from subtle to statement lashes, We Are Faux's products have featured in Vogue, no less. Delicate, criss-cross lashes, dense 1960s styles, and dramatic, angled spikes lashes are among the options, and you're almost guaranteed to find the perfect accompaniment to your party outfit. Even better, they'll last for several wears. Prices start at £9.
With prices starting from £12, Illamasqua's false eyelash range isn't the cheapest, but it is top quality. Whether you are looking to add a little or a lot of volume, want a sexy cat-eye flick style, or even a bat-shaped lash, you'll find them here.

Cosmetic giant MAC's false lashes are great for adding natural-looking length and volume, with everything from wispy lashes and half lashes to lush and dramatic or striking winged-corner styles. Prices start from around £10 and sadly don't include the glue, but you can adorn or reshape them as long as you look after them.
