When I tried my first pair of magnetic lashes, I admit I struggled. The idea of using magnetization was genius, but lining up the two itty-bitty lash bands so the magnets clicked? Impossible. Fortunately, brands have evolved this technology, and there are a ton of amazing magnetic eyeliner lashes to choose from. You simply line your lids, pop on the lashes, and boom! They stay in place perfectly. If you're still looking for the perfect falsies approach, the magnetic liner and lash combo could be your saving grace.
How do magnetic eyeliner lashes work, you ask? Allow me to break it all down. To apply classic fake eyelashes, you line your falsies with glue and try your best to place them so the glue dries without making one big mess. In an attempt to ditch glue for good, many brands developed magnetic lashes, which featured two lash strips to be placed above and below your natural lashes, which would magnetize together and stay in place. Tricky to master, but hey! No glue! Last but not least, the latest and greatest innovation is the magnetic eyeliner and lash combo. Instead of lash glue, users simply line lids with a special black eyeliner. When it dries, the magnetism in the formula is activated, and the accompanying falsies will stick to the liner perfectly. No mess, no hassle. Beloved lash brands from KISS to Ardell to Eyelure all have affordable, easy-to-apply magnetic liner and lash options, so it's about darn time you gave them a go.
