With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and romantic city breaks no doubt booked, we thought it would be a fab idea to create a false eyelash essentials list, ensuring your lashes are on point and your makeup bag crammed with those all-important beauty necessities. Whether it is a cheeky first date you’re attending, or a celebratory milestone for a long-lasting relationship, there’s no doubt about it, you need to look incredible - and we have just the products for you!
First date vibes
Going on a first date can be daunting to say the least, trying to figure out what to wear and what look to go for can be challenging. Whether it is a formal dinner, or you have a casual, fun date planned; we say on this occasion less is definitely more. Don’t overdo your makeup, of course you want to look your best but you also don’t want to appear as though you are trying too hard. Ardell’s hugely popular ‘Wispies’ are the perfect choice for a first date. With a natural, yet elongating and eye opening appearance, these lashes look lovely and are ideal for all occasions. Simply style alone without eye makeup, or opt for soft nudes and browns for a subtle yet stunning look. Team with a pink lip, and you are good to go!

When in a more serious relationship, Valentine’s Day is often the perfect time to jet away for a romantic city break. It’s hard to know where to begin when it comes to packing your suitcase and creating a stash of your ultimate favourite falsies. We thought we would put together a little mini list of beauty essentials to take with you:
Our top choice of lash for a flirty weekend away, is the stunning Velour lashes in style See Through. These ultra-fluffy, lengthening and lightweight lashes look gorgeous once applied and are a bestseller from Velour's impressive collection.
The House of Lashes Rose Quartz case is a gorgeous compact that allows you to store three pairs of falsies in, along with glue and tweezers. Great for when you’re on the go; this guarantees that your lashes are kept in fabulous condition at all times.
To ensure all lash applications are a breeze, we recommend using a lash applicator such as the Lilly Lashes FAB-U Lash Rose Gold Applicator. This allows you to precisely position your lashes as close to your lash line as possible, and apply them neatly and hassle free!
Of course with fab lashes, you need fantastic glue to make sure they remain firmly in place all day (or night). Our bestselling DUO strip lash adhesive is a perfect match for any lash, it comes in different forms and tones, giving you the option to choose which suits you best. All formulas are long lasting and provide a strong hold. For an effortless lash application, we suggest you opt for the brush on tube.
Last but not least, you need somewhere super stylish to put all of these products, what better option than the ‘Flutter Lashes’ ‘Keep your hands off my lash stash’ makeup bag. With enough room to fit an array of makeup products in, this handy zip bag is great for travelling.
As well as having flawless lashes, it is not a complete look without gorgeously defined eyebrows. The Ardell Brow Building Fiber Gel is an incredible all-rounder in this category! It consists of a fiber rich formula that thickens the brows, while adding colour and definition. This water and smudge proof product works wonders on all eyebrows, and is super long lasting. Available in four different colours, find your match today on FalseEyelashes.co.uk at our Brow Bar.
Sophisticated dinner date
Lilly Lashes in Style Luxe are the perfect fit for an extra special occasion where you have the excuse to dress up to your hearts content. Their incredibly tasteful design features criss-crossed lash strands and a graduated length that accentuates your eyes beautifully providing an elongated appearance. Team with a stroke of eyeliner for a tasteful yet stand out finish.
All the single ladies!
Although it is predominantly a time for love, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be solely for couples. Why not practise some self-love and treat number one; yourself! Nothing is stopping you from getting all dolled up, and heading for a girl’s night out. A night out calls for one thing, glamorous makeup and of course – lashes. We are currently loving the Unicorn Cosmetics Lashes in style Lemon Meringue for a full, fluffy and textured look, you’re sure to be the centre of attention wearing these lovely lashes!
Which lashes will you be reaching for this Valentine’s Day?
