Has anyone worn fake lashes for their wedding? Or other event? I had a makeup trial this weekend and I was told that if I cry they will most likely come off so its not reccomened because the picturse could obviously be bad if you have lashes all messed up. I am paying thia women a lot for makeup and I originally asked if they were included because I wanted them and now she is telling me they arent the way to go.I just want to make sure this is accurate information. Thanks!

I wore false lashes for my wedding and had no issues with them, plus I loved the way they looked in pictures. I’m not really a cryer though.

lashes, put on correctly, will only come off if while crying you rub your eyes a ton.

I would definetly recommend them. They look so much better in pics. They usually hold up pretty well.

mnt113: you could have semi permanent eye lash extensions done- they last about a week. No need for mascara & no worrying about any tears 🙂
alternatively, I am a massive false eyelash fan & wear them for all occassions. So id recommend practicing at home with them so if they do come off you can reapply them yourself! x

I wore lashes for my wedding and loved them! They make your eyes pop in the photos. I only cried a little so it wasn’t an issue. I imagine if you’re sobbing uncontrollably then they may fall off.

I had them done for my wedding and I loved them! They didn’t feel that weird once I got used to them, and they only came off when I went to take them off.

I used to wear fake eyelashes all the time. Like, 24/7. I used the individual ones and a glue that was meant to last for days (it came with another tube of stuff to rub on your lashes to unstick the glue). I got it all at Walmart, Ardell brand. Get the short or medium lashes for a more natural look.

I wore fake lashes for my wedding and they looked fantastic (and were very comfortable). I loved them. However the caveat to all this is that the first time I tried them on was in my trial, where they were really itchy and started peeling off after about an hour. My MUA adjusted them and used a different glue for my actual wedding since apparently the first type didn’t work so well for me.
So do a trial and see what you think!

I’m having semi permanent lashes and I’m so excited! I’m getting then done for my hen and then having in fills for my wedding day. I have short straight lashes that refuse to curl so lash extensions will make a HUGE difference

So I actually already did the trial and the women was really against doing them and she was insistant on me not wearing them due to the fact they may look bad if I cry. She said she could curl them to get the same effect and I just feel like that wont look as good. I am not a big crier personally and if I do it might be briefly during the ceremony but I definitly wont be sobbing. I had to pay her 125 for the trial and another 125 for the actual day and I just feel like I am getting completely over charged for not exactly what I want. And I am getting married up in maine so its not like its any expensive area or something. is it rude to just email her and say I know you dont recommend it but I still want it?

I wear falsies whenever I’m going out (dinner, parties, special events, etc). It def allows for make-up to pop and just completes the face. Not to mention it photographs so well! If you really want them, def demand it. Doesnt sound likes she’s confident in applying them…strip lashes are pretty easy to do. Perhaps one of your bridesmaids can help you apply them. Dont rub your eyes and you will be fine (you wouldnt be anyway, as to not mess up your eye make up 🙂 ) If you do cry, them them dry 😉 If they do start to lift, have some lash glue in your bridal suite for a touch up. Def a must IMHO

I wore them for my wedding, I bought a more expensive pair (from Mac) and had no issues at all. I think that your make up artist is overcharging you a bit, bucoif you arehappy with the rest of the look I would say that you want to wear them. It may be that, that make up artist is not comfortable with applying lashes that’s why she’s insistent on talking you out of them?

Truthfully if she is so against doing them I would consult another makeup artist. I would worry that the reason she doesn’t think they hold up well is because she cannot apply them properly. I had individual lashes applied (not lash extensions) for my wedding and they were absolutely fine – in fact they stuck to me overnight and through a shower before I finally pulled them off (its not a great idea but i was getting irritated)… I know you’ve spent a lot of money on the trial but it might be worth it to consider another person, learn to apply yourself, or go to a salon and have professional lash extensions done ahead of time…

I had individual fake lashes on for our day. My makeup artist also applied a light coat of waterprrof mascara and then false lashes. I usually am not a crier- but once I did my father daughter dance I broke down. My lashes did not budge. I was able to sleep in them and in the morning when I took a hot shower I was able to easily rub them off.
I also think you should consult another makeup artist. Like PPO’s said…if it is what you want they should be able to provide what you ask for.
