Shu uemura makes excellent false lashes. My makeup artist used them on me for my wedding. His tips were to cut small amounts and place them only where needed (especially on the outside corner of the eye which really opens the eye up). He also used liquid liner to color over the glue that did not dry completely clear.

Also, make sure to practice before the big day.

Before you spend money, go to your neighborhood drugstore and buy a couple of pairs in different styles, along with a tube of glue.  Practice with them, have a friend help you, and just get comfortable with them.  I agre with chicagoseattle the shu uemura makes a great line of eyelashes that won’t break the bank, but i would buy some cheapies first just to experiment.  From personal experience, you’re going to ruin a pair or 5 before you get the hang of it. (or maybe it was just me!)

i use ardell short flares (lash clusters) from the drugstore.  they’re cheap and natural looking.  i’ve never really tried the big strip myself (only have had makeup artists do them on me), but they’re easier to apply.  the flares just take a little bit of practice though — i’m a pro now and can put them on other people.

I’ve always loved MACs – and they’ll apply them for you right when you buy them.

I usually get mine at the local daiso (japanese store that sells inexpensive trinkets. Almost like an american dollar store.) Only $1.50! If you want to learn how to apply the eyelashes, you could find tutorials on Youtube.com. Just do a search on "apply false eyelashes." There are tons of video on how to do it!

I have only tried MAC falsies and liked them pretty well.  Try not to fall asleep in them, they may get bent out of shape and they’ll never go back!  I have never had success applying false lashes on my own, so I second or third (or whatever) others’ advice to practice!  If you find yourself giving up, you should try using Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effect Faux Cils, which is mascara, and is the best I have ever tried for getting long, full lashes.  It even smells nice.  I am currently obsessed with it.

Admittedly I’m horrible at applying fakelashes!  I purchased a couple packs of Ardell #110 from my local CVS for practice.  I haven’t mastered it yet, but it’s easy on the wallet while you learn.
