What men really think about... false eyelashes

Girls love big, bold false eyelashes, but what do the men in our lives really think? We got them to spill the beans

This month, Beauty Recommended polled ten men to find out what they really think about false eyelashes. Do they notice them? Do they like their bold, luscious effect or do they prefer a more natural look?

Well, the results are in: 60% of our panel love them! Read on to find out what our panel of men had to say for themselves.


“They really open up her eyes and make a statement of intent,” says Neil O’Brien, from Essex. “She looks beautiful and I’m captivated by her glance.”

“This eye look is quite striking. I can tell she is wearing false eyelashes, but only because they’re shaped and look a little too long for them to be real,” says Dimitri Sedashev, from London. “Personally, I like them if they’re not too obvious, and look somewhat natural on a woman. They can add real drama to an eye look.”

On the fence:

“Personally, I prefer an elegant look which for me is natural eyelashes and subtle make-up,” says Danny Shine, from London. “However, while I don’t think it’s a good look for every day, I do think it’s fun and glamorous for a night out. This model pulls off the false eyelash look very well and at a distance I probably wouldn’t notice they were fake. They look very professional.”

“You can tell she’s wearing false eyelashes but they don’t look unnaturally large or ostentatious,” says Tom Cornish, from Manchester. “I prefer a natural look, but the way she looks here is very striking and I can see how it would really make an impression.”
