Anyone who's ever tried wearing false eyelashes with glasses knows that the wrong pair can lead to the lashes batting up against your lenses — and that is one combination that
definitely doesn't work. However, that doesn't mean that you have give up on wearing glamorous falsies altogether. The best false eyelashes for glasses have the right shape to still work with your spectacles, so you get the best of both worlds — look-at-me lashes and clear vision. What To Look For In Falsies For Glasses
The most important thing is that you find
short falsies that aren't long enough to come in contact with your glasses, or dramatically curled ones that point upward instead of outward, so that they're also less likely to hit your lenses.
Another approach is to opt for individual false lashes, or "singles," since you can add longer lashes to the corner edge of your eye, where the lashes tend to point outward. Singles are great at adding natural-looking volume where you need it. That being said, applying individual lashes requires both time and skill, so if you're new to falsies, you might want to steer clear of singles until you get more accustomed to the rather tedious
With that in mind, it's time to find the best eyelashes for you. All of the products below come highly rated on Amazon and have glasses wearers raving.

If you want big, voluminous false lashes while wearing glasses, you need ones with a good amount of upward curl to prevent lens batting— like these
Demi Wispies from ARDELL. ARDELL is one of the most well-known brands in faux lashes and these demi wispies offer the perfect amount of flutter, feathering, and curl. They feature a flared lash style, meaning they're shorter at the inner corner and longer at the outer corner, making them perfect for glasses wearers. And thanks to their Invisiband technology, the lash band is really unnoticeable. One reviewer wrote: "These eyelashes are amazing. I love that they have the clear band and that they're a realistic length and thickness....they are so light on my lids I don't even notice them. BIG PLUS: they do NOT brush against my glasses!” 3 The Best Short, Thick False Eyelashes
For short lashes that still add some luscious thickness, you can't go wrong with these
Scala 3-D False Eyelashes. They make eyes pop but won't brush against your lenses thanks to their shorter length. They've racked up quite a few rave reviews from glasses wearers on Amazon. Plus, they're a welcomingly affordable choice since you get five pairs for less than $10. One reviewer wrote: "I got these mainly because I was looking for eyelashes that looked like the typical cute cosplayer lashes but I wanted them short enough that if I had to wear my glasses they wouldn't hit my lenses.They are SUPER light weight and give just enough volume. I wore these for over 8 hours in the heat at a cosplay beach party and had no issues!” 4 The Best Single False Eyelashes
If you're a falsie newbie, you probably don't want to start with singles, but if you have some experience under you belt, this
Ardell Individuals Duralash Combo Pack Starter Kit is a great option, especially for glasses wearers. You can apply the kit's short lashes to the inner corner, but go for the more dramatic knotted flares or long black lashes for the outer lashes that point away from your glasses.
Speaking about the kit, makeup artist Katie Mellinger told
Allure, "I can customize the lash style according to the client's individual eye shape and natural lashes. Sometimes a person may need just the short lashes, but sometimes they need the long ones. Or I can combine short, medium, and/or long flares to create my own shapes and desired lash intensity." What's more, the pack comes with a salon-style tweezers to help with precise application. One reviewer wrote: "This was my first attempt at ever applying individual lashes. It takes time and patience but honestly I expected it to be harder! I used only the medium and short as I felt the long was too long for me but now all my friends want them too!” 5 The Best Magnetic Lashes For Glasses
