If, like us on the Beautygeeks side of the screen, you missed the lush-lash buffet before you were born, one of the first things you likely notice about others is the sweep of their lashes. Take Jennifer Aniston, whose apparently natural eyelashes get our Best Red Carpet Lashes at the Oscars 2013 Award. Our Best Awards-Season 2013 Red Carpet Lashes Award goes to Lea Michele at the SAG Awards (below).
Yes, there are lash-enhancing serums (probably the source of Jennifer's length), but really, for most of us, falsies are the fastest route to a glamorous fringe. Below is a slide-show a round-up of the best recent red-carpet lashes, and which falsies will give you a similar effect.

There are so many fake-lash options for achieving each of these looks -- MAC and Shu Uemura have excellent selections, too, and I highly recommend Velour Lashes (gorgeous). We'd love to know what you'd use!
