If you’re asking where you can get Red Cherry lashes, you’ve come to the right place. I’m going to tell you where to find them at fantastic prices.

Not only that, I’m going to help you sort through the overwhelming variety of Red Cherry eyelashes so that you can find your right style. To assist you I’ve compiled a comparison chart and lists of Red Cherry lashes sorted by type and style number. I’ll also give you my review and recommendations from each category.

Kim Kardashian, with her trademark glam eyelashes, is the most famous person known for wearing Red Cherry lashes. Beyond that, you may not know Red Cherry lashes are made from human hair and are inexpensive. So let’s take a look at what Red Cherry has to offer.

Choosing the right Red Cherry lashes for you

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect eyelash and in my quest I’ve tried several different styles of Red Cherry lashes. I couldn’t find them in any stores in my area, but they’re readily available online at Amazon and eBay.

But before you go shopping, you need to figure out what you’re looking for. Unless you see them side by side, it’s kind of hard to tell the difference between styles and also get perspective on how long and full they really are. The following comparison chart will help you with the selection process.

Below that are lists of Red Cherry lashes sorted by category: natural, day and evening glamour, ultimate drama. These lists are in numerical order by style number.

Once you have the style numbers of the Red Cherry lashes you like, you can check them out on Amazon and eBay.

My review of Red Cherry eyelashes

Choosing false eyelashes is a very personal thing, but here’s my opinion of Red Cherry lashes. I like the fact that they’re made from human hair, they’re well made, durable and cheaper than most other brands.

I’ve tried styles from every category, natural, day/evening glamour and drama, and here are my thoughts on each:

  1. Natural. (Subtle to moderate length and volume.) Lashes described as subtle are too subtle for me. Since my own lashes are barely there, adding subtle false eyelashes does not make much difference. I end up having to build them up with mascara and then they just look okay. But they would be good to try for someone who’s new to false eyelashes.I much prefer the ones categorized as moderate and my favorite one is Red Cherry #28.
  2. Day or evening glamour. (Moderate to full length and volume.) There are several that I like from this category because they have a little bit of drama but you can still wear them during the day. My favorite from this category is Red Cherry #DW because of the way they crisscross at the base. I also like Red Cherry #110 and Red Cherry #415 which remind me of my beloved Ardell Wispies.
  3. Ultimate drama. (Extreme length or volume.) Okay, these are really out there. Most of them would only be appropriate for a club, performing on stage or walking the red carpet like Kim Kardashian. And these lashes being so long and thick means that the bands are also thicker and, therefore, not as comfortable to wear. For example, Red Cherry #138 were too long, too straight and the band was constantly poking my eyelid. I did not like these at all. My favorite from this category is Red Cherry #523. They’re a little long but the volume is just about right. They seem fairly comfortable as well. Check out Aileen’s Beauty/Fashion blog to see beautiful pictures of Red Cherry #523 being worn, as well as #117, #79, #203, #43 and #101.

Red Cherry “natural” lashes on Amazon

If you’re not sure what style will look flattering on you, it’s a good idea to try a few different styles. You can find a lot of variety on Amazon and usually for lower prices than you can find at your local beauty supply store.

The following is a small sampling of lashes that are suitable for daytime wear. They give your eyes a little more emphasis but no one will know you’re wearing falsies. You’ll be able to wear these every day. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll find it quicker to apply false eyelashes than to mess around with layers of mascara.

My favorite style from this category is #28.

Red Cherry “day/evening” lashes on Amazon

If you like a little more drama but still want your lashes to look believable, choose some styles from this section. Some of these looks are spiky, some are wispy and some are the same thickness straight across. I think the ones with a little texture are more natural looking. These are the lashes where the individual hairs are not all the same length.

My favorites from this category are the Red Cherry #DW for their wispy texture.

More styles are available than are shown here.

Red Cherry “dramatic” lashes on Amazon

If you really want to stand out in a crowd, choose from these dramatic looks. Ladies, if your style is bold and flamboyant, you’ll be drawn to these ultra glamorous eyelashes. These are great for clubbing and parties. But the trade off here for the extra drama is a little less comfort due to the weight and the thickness of the bands.

My favorite style from this category is #523.

Five false eyelash tips for women over 50

These five tips will help women over 50 get the most flattering look with false eyelashes

false eyelashes for women over 50They say 50 is the new 30 and in many ways that may be true, except when it comes to your eyelashes. After 50, they’re just not what they used to be. False eyelashes are the best solution to thin, skimpy lashes if you know what you’re doing.

False eyelashes open up your eyes and make them look bigger, giving you a more youthful appearance. They enhance your beauty and make you feel feminine. Just like every work of art needs a focal point, your eyes will be the focal point with expertly-applied false lashes.

But where do you start? There are so many styles and brands to choose from. So I’m going to point you in the right direction and give you five tips for choosing false eyelashes and adhesive, applying them, removing them, and getting the most flattering, realistic look.

Five false eyelash tips for women over 50

  1. Choose realistic looking eyelashes
  2. Use a waterproof, flexible eyelash adhesive
  3. Apply eyelashes with tweezers and a 10x magnifying mirror
  4. Use eyeliner before and after applying eyelashes
  5. Use mascara and an eyelash curler to blend real and fake lashes together

Tip 1: Choose realistic looking eyelashes

The most realistic lashes are ones with the same rounded shape as real lashes and the same feathery texture. Eyelashes that are too thick will not only look fake, they’ll have the effect of closing a middle-aged eye, rather than opening it up. Also, the bands should be as thin as possible for looking more realistic and for being more comfortable to wear.

Eyelashes that are winged out on the end can make your eye look droopy. I prefer false eyelashes that are tapered on both ends, with the inner edge being the same length as my own lashes and the outer edge being slightly longer.

I’ve tried many different brands and styles of false eyelashes, both human hair and synthetic. I think human hair lashes look the most real because they are real hair. And my favorite brand is Ardell. Here are my recommendations for realistic looking eyelashes for both daytime and nighttime.

Best Ardell eyelashes for the natural look

False eyelashes come in strips or individuals. While individual lashes look very realistic, they take so much longer to put on, take off and clean, just the thought of it drives me crazy. So I use and recommend the strip lashes. With care, they can last for up to three weeks.

This assortment of Ardell eyelashes are all good choices for the natural look.

Ardell Wispies, my favorite false eyelashes for the glamour look

I love my Wispies so much, I want to wear them all the time!

Wispies are practically “the” perfect eyelash. I just love how feathery they are! They’re the right length for evening but can be a little long for daytime. Sometimes I just can’t resist and wear them in the daytime anyway.

They’re slightly thicker and longer than Ardell 122, and they’re not as tapered on the inner and outer edges.

Compared to the 105s, Wispies are more feathered and spiky while the 105s are only slightly feathered with the volume being even all the way across.

Tip 2: Use a waterproof, flexible eyelash adhesive

No matter how pretty your false eyelashes are, the look will be ruined if your eyelash adhesive doesn’t hold them in place. A waterproof, flexible glue will withstand a little moisture and will move with your eyelid. Duo and LashGrip are the two top eyelash glues. Some people think that Duo holds better, but having tried both I can’t tell the difference between the two. LashGrip is a little cheaper so I’m recommending that here.

These adhesives come in clear and dark. I’ve tried both and they each have pros and cons.The dark one has the advantage of blending in faster while it’s still drying. What I don’t like about it is if you accidentally get some on your eyeshadow, it leaves a black mark that has to be touched up. The clear adhesive will not ruin your eyeshadow, but it takes about ten minutes to dry clear. Currently, I’m using the clear and I think I prefer it overall.

Eyelash removal tip: Some people use eye makeup remover to remove lashes, but I just use water or a drop of coconut oil. I put a drop along the lash line and let it sit for a minute, then I pull off the lashes starting from the outer corner. Even though the glue is waterproof, it will soften up and the eyelash will come off easily without pulling your own eyelashes out. Then I hold the eyelash close to the band while I pull off the glue. I just use water to rinse off water-resistant mascara and eyeliner from the lashes.

Tip 3: Apply eyelashes with tweezers and a 10x magnifying mirror

Another fact of life over 50 is that our eyesight is not quite as good as it used to be. That makes putting on any makeup a difficult task, and mission impossible for applying false eyelashes.

I don’t wear prescription glasses or contacts, but I do wear readers for close work like beading, sewing, painting and putting on false eyelashes. And here’s how I do it.

First, if the eyelashes are new I remove them from the container by holding the outer edge and gently pulling them off. Then I put adhesive on the eyelash strip while wearing my reading glasses, applying just a small amount directly from the tube with a little extra dot on each end.

After allowing the glue to set up for 30 seconds (or using the blow dryer for five seconds), I grab the strip with tweezers. I take off my glasses and look into the 10x mirror. I hold both ends of the eyelash strip (using the tweezers and my fingers of the other hand) and put it on my eyelid starting at the outer corner. Then I use the tweezers to push the eyelash strip into place along my lash line.

I only use the 10x mirror for applying eyelashes, eyeliner and mascara. It sits in front of a regular mirror that I use for the rest of my makeup application.

Here’s a selection of 10x magnifying mirrors from Amazon. There are some freestanding mirrors, as well as one that mounts on the wall. And don’t forget to get a 10x compact mirror for your purse. It’s great for touch ups during the day.

It’s indispensable for expertly applying false eyelashes and eyeliner, plucking your eyebrows and cleaning up eyeshadow fallout. This mirror is so versatile because it’s double-sided, 10x on one side and 1x on the other, and you can fold it up and travel with it.

Tip 4: Use eyeliner before and after applying eyelashes

Use eyeliner before putting on false eyelashes to camouflage any gaps there may be between the real and fake lashes. So why do you need to put eyeliner on twice? I do this to cover up the eyelash glue. Whether you use clear or dark eyelash glue, they both look shiny when dried. So I go over the edge of the band with black liquid liner. It’s also important to fill in the line from the inner corner of your eye up to the eyelash strip.

Tip 5: Use mascara and an eyelash curler to blend real and fake lashes together

A lot of people put mascara on before the false lashes, but I like to do it afterwards. I start at the base of my lashes and wiggle the wand up while pushing into the fake lashes. Then I carefully curl my eyelashes. I think this helps bind the real lashes with the fake ones, and it makes your eyes look more open.

I like to use water-resistant mascara, not waterproof, because it’s easier to remove with just water.
