Ardell Lashes have been around for half a century now, and the company has successfully built a solid reputation since its original conception. Ardell's mission statement is simple and straight to the point - 'Give women a way to make their eyes beautiful and unforgettable'. The company has quickly become one of the most popular false eyelash brands on the market to date. Their mission is to provide affordable yet alluring eyewear, designed in a Cruelty-Free manner that never slacks or lacks on style or elegance!
Ardell was founded in 1971 by Arnold and Sydell Miller, a loving couple who first met in Arnold's beauty salon. The pair then moved on to design their first pair of false lashes in the very same salon. At the time, one set of false eyelashes took around two hours to make, as each lash was individually fashioned and feathered with natural hairs! Arnold recalls losing money before developing a faster method to create them, but he knew the product was a hit from the get-go because his customers instantly adored them. The daring duo was influenced and inspired by false eyelashes at the beginning of the 20th century.
Anna Taylor is the lady to be thanked for gracing us with the wonderful invention of false eyelashes, which for many of us, have become an everyday essential. Since the invention on the 6th June 1911, it is fair to state that eyelashes have become quite the industry, with so many different brands and types being able to be purchased, just look on our site!
People have been lengthening their eyelashes since the 18th century, but what made them popular was film director, D. W. Griffiths in 1916. A pair of false eyelashes were made for Griffiths' leading lady, Seena, for the film Intolerance. The original method involved a professional wig-maker sewing individual human hairs onto a fine mesh before applying to the actress's eyelids. Arnold and Sydell decided to do their homework and quickly discovered a more effective method that mirrored those of the wig-makers to create their false/faux lashes.
In 1980, Ardell was recognised by beauty giants American International Industries. Their goal was simple - to enable women to enhance their beauty and make their eyes look incredible with Ardell Lashes. Ardell quickly became recognised as being the very best supplier for realistic and high-class false eyelashes. Whilst the company has been well-known in the United States for half a century, the news has quickly spread across the pond in recent years too. Ardell Lashes are now prominent in both the UK and Australia and several other countries across the globe. FalseEyelashes.co.uk is proud to offer such a wide range of collections for you to choose from.
The Ardell range is superb and can provide for any look required. Whatever you need, Ardell will have it. Day or night, lowkey or highkey, you can choose from so many different styles - wispy, dramatic, natural, volumising, glamorous, lengthening, fluffy or petite. The power is well and truly in your hands.
Are Ardell Lashes Ethical?
According to The Cut (New York Beauty Magazine), Ardell offers the very best false eyelashes at the most affordable prices. Whilst consumers continue to strive for high-class and well-priced items, searching for ethical and Cruelty-Free products has become the norm for many of us too! Several make-up artists swear by Ardell’s line, and their dedication to creating Cruelty-Free products is highly praised within the fashion industry.
Peta Australia (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) has reported Ardell as the very best supplier for Cruelty-Free lashes. They have also remarked upon the company’s compassion for creating Cruelty-Free products. Ardell is passionate and dedicated to creating products that change trends and make bold statements. Still, they are also invested in doing so most ethically and efficiently way possible!
This is excellent news for the changing world we like in, and we wholeheartedly support Ardell's values and mission statement.

Wispy Lashes – What’s All The Hype About?
Wispy Lashes have been placed firmly in the limelight for quite some time now. They seem to be taking the beauty world by storm, and you’ve likely seen several celebrities sporting them in recent years too. Wispy Lashes are by far the best selling line Ardell has. If you are new to the eyelash world, you may be feeling overwhelmed with the amount of choices available. Don't worry, FalseEyelashes.co.uk are here to help! I've done my research, and falsie fans are loving the Ardell Wispy Lashes - so this may be a good place to start.
The top 3 best selling lines are (with added reviews from our falsie fans) -
Ardell Lashes Demi Wispies Multipack (5 Pairs) - these lashes are, as hinted in the name, a 5 pack multipack, valuing at £13.99. The band provides a seamless finish, and the lash provides plenty of volume, with subtle winged-out edges. Perfect!
Amazing lashes I buy all the time. Gemma
I love these lashes. They are soft and simple to use. They look very natural. As a makeup artist these lashes are always with me. Apolonija

But what exactly are Wispy Lashes?
The Wispy Eyelash design takes after its name, and it has been carefully curated to provide a feathery and elegant look for the wearer. The individual lashes themselves criss-cross together, creating an elongated frame for the eye with an added fluttery effect. Wispies can create eye-opening looks and a level of comfort that can not be rivalled.
Each lash contains a lightweight band that's knotted to the individual hair strands to form a complete and secure lash. Additionally, Wispy Lashes are knotted and hand-feathered to create the perfect look and an unified feel that brings comfort to the wearer. Some falsies fans like to wear Wispies every day, and we get it! While Ardell stock a whole range of exciting products, their Wispies selection is by far the most popular. The long feathery, elegant look is currently in fashion, and adding some Ardell Wispies can be a fantastic way to bring a bit of definition to your eye-line.
Celebrities such as Jade from Little Mix have been known to wear Ardell’s Wispies and some of their other well-known items and products. Additionally, Lady Gaga also famously wore Ardell's Faux Mink Demi Wispies at the Grammy Awards, and this range has really gained in popularity since then. Considering how big a fashion icon Lady Gaga is, we're not surprised!
Some other celebrities known to have used Ardell's Wispies for red-carpet events and premieres include:
- Gabrielle Union
- Demi Lovato
- Uzo Aduba
- Greta Gerwig
- Kaley Cuoco
And the list goes on! Wispy lashes are the go-to for most false-eyelash users and make-up artists alike, but Ardell Wispy Lashes are probably the most prominent players out of the bunch.
How To Apply – Ardell Wispy Lashes
We know that Wispies are popular, so we thought we’d create a step-by-step guide so that you can apply yours quickly and properly. Just take a look at our simple 5 step guide below:
Step 1 – Choose Your Palette
Before applying your Ardell Wispies, you might want to soften your eyes or define them with a complimentary shadow and eyeliner. Due to false eyelashes’ delicate nature, applying them is often the very last step in a make-over.
Step 2 – Trim Those Ardell Lashes
If you’ve ever applied false eyelashes before, then you’ll know that you need to cut them to size. It is essential to get this step right - as this is often where people tend to make mistakes. Cut too little, and you’ll have a lot of excess lashes. Cut too much, and the lash won’t fully frame your eyes.
Top tip: When trimming lashes, cut from the outer-side edge, and do so sparingly. As you continue to trim the lashes, be sure to measure them against your own to identify when they are just right.
Step 3 – The Glue Line
Once you have trimmed your Ardell Wispies to the appropriate length, you can begin to apply your adhesive. To use the glue correctly, hold the semi-circular lash between your fingers, gently facing upwards. You can then take the glue and neatly apply one line in a semi-circular motion.
Step 4 – Centre Your Lashes
Now it’s time to get the lashes on. With confidence, place your eyelash (ideally with applicator tweezers or a lash applicator tool) on the centre of your eyelid and press down. You’ll want to stick your lashes on as closely as possible to your eye line and natural lashes for the best effect and a seamless look. Once you have pressed down, you can use your applicator to pull and shape the eyelash to sit in the most desired position.
Step 5 – The Finishing Touches
Once you have finished following the above steps, you can repeat the process on your other lash. Now that you have successfully applied your Ardell Lashes, you should take a spoolie to clean through your lashes, fluff them up - or adjust them in any way to suit your preference, and that’s about it!
All you’ll need to do now is admire your gorgeous, feathery eyes - it is as simple as that to apply Ardell Wispies.
Top tip: Like with your skin, you will need to make sure that your natural lashes are clean before applying Wispy Lashes. You can do this easily using a small cotton pad dampened with a cleanser (micellar water is also a great option too).
Gently wipe the cotton pad across your eyes and lashes to remove any excess make-up, and pat dry with a clean flannel. After this, we would recommend that you apply a fine coat of mascara to your natural lashes. By doing so, you will allow your falsies to stick better to your natural lashes. In turn, this creates a more natural, seamless, and elegant blend for a pronounced and defined effect.
If you need further help, tips and tricks, I recommend heading over to Ardell's page, where you can visit their 'How To Videos'. They provide videos of MUA's applying all sorts of lashes. Need help putting on magnetic lashes? They have you covered. We are so proud to stock Ardell's range, they are seriously an iconic lash brand and we couldn't recommend them enough.
More top tips for Ardell Lashes
- Apply makeup first, then apply your lashes!
- Never (and I mean never) pull your Ardell false eyelash out of its case - the fibres may break off, decreasing the number of uses or even making them unwearable - be gentle!
- Make sure you measure the lash - don't just risk it.
- Only apply a thin line of glue/adhesive to your lash and wait for it to set a little!
- Tweezers will be your best friend!
- Remove the adhesive after use to enhance the number or wears you get from Ardell Lashes.

Fab - exactly the right amount of lash for me! Naomi
These lashes are great for length and for giving the eyes that perfect winged look! Love them! Anna
This is an excellent product. I would highly recommend them. They stay on for ages and are a perfect length. I used them with medium lashes as well to get a perfect set of amazing lashes. The glue is also great and lasts for a long time. Ellen
These were the first accent lashes I tried after years of failed attempts with strip lashes. I have always used individuals which are fine but time consuming. I wanted some simple accents to add something to my daily office look and they did not disappoint. Very easy to apply and lightweight, they are perfect for day to day wear. I have worn mine on 4 separate days - all day - and they have never come loose or bothered me. I have noticed that the lashes on the very outside are starting to drop down so I will have to retire the pair I have and replace them but for the price I think 4 full days of wear is good value! Hazel
I will always love Wispies from Ardell, they can do no wrong!! Francesca
