I've been a huge fan of the Ardell false lashes for years now. When it comes to my professional work, this is the brand that I reach for over and over. The majority of the styles that I've seen are still more natural looking than those with the big thick black plastic bands, because even if they are a thick crazy-ish style of lash the bands on the Ardell lashes are for the most part clear and easily hidden at the base of the real lashes. While it would be apparent that someone was wearing falsies due to the length, color, or thickness of the lashes themselves, they are still pretty naked to the eye at the base and blend beautifully with the person's real lashes.
I've put together a video showing you my favorite Ardell false lash styles that I use for my headshots and bridal work. These are also going to be the lash styles that I use on myself for the majority of my videos, unless I'm going for a more dramatic character makeup. Which honestly, I don't see myself filming until around Halloween time anyway. I'm more of an "everyday" type makeup YouTube-r. There are tons of videos out there demonstrating how to blend 18 colors of neon eyeshadow if you want to know how to do the really out there dramatic looks. But for the most part I make videos for women who come to me and say "I never learned how to do my makeup. Please help me!"
So if you're interested in wearing false lashes and want a brand that not only looks great but is also easy to find and super affordable, check out my recommendations for my favorite styles from Ardell. You can find them at Target, Walmart, Ulta, and Sally Beauty as well as many websites such as Madamemadeline.com. (Madamemadeline.com is where I prefer to buy mine, since there are tons of ways to get free pairs, free shipping, etc. Plus, when I buy them in bulk, they are cheaper than anywhere else I've found combined with the coupon codes. I think the code "Falsies" still gives you 8% off. I've been using it for years.)
Here's the styles that I recommend: #109, #110, #122, Demi Wispies, Demi Luvies, Demures. I'll also show you in the video what to look for in a good false lash, in case you can't get your hands on the Ardell brand.
