I’ve decided that I want lush, beautiful eyelashes for my wedding day (who doesn’t!). But, being a falsie virgin, I have no idea what lashes to buy. Word is, the ones that are separate little chunks of lashes look more natural than the strip of lashes. I’m also assuming I should give them a couple trial runs before the big day so they don’t feel so . . . weird.
And Madonna apparently uses ones made of mink that are ridiculously expensive.
Anyone have any recommendations for a Target-sized budget?

I just went the beauty aisle picked a mid-range price…and I have no idea what brand it was.
I would recommend the separate lashes vs. a strip though!
After applying, letting them dry and then brushing mascara over it all…they looked pretty legit, and didn’t feel nearly as heavy as a strip would!

I would go with the M.A.C ones. They are usually around $15 and are really good quality. You can have the people at the stands help you out with them too!

I”m in Canada – not sure if have them..
I use the Ardene brand (about $4 from the drugstore) I’ve used MAC as well and there was no difference, other than the price.
Sidenote: a funny story about false eyelashes…I was a bridesmaid last spring; I did my own makeup, including false eyelashes.
Now I’ve worn false eyelashes a hundred tmes, but i don’t know what it was about that day, I just couldn’t get them to sit right. I think I ended up with too much glue from my numerous attempts and they felt kind of heavy and awkward. I wore them to for the girl pictures and to the ceremony, but after the ceremony I was still very concious of them and didn’t want to look like Miss Piggy in the pictures (IDK, they just felt big) so while they were arranging to the wedding party for some pictures in the church I turn my back to the everyone and made like i was fixing my shoe; I peeled them off and set them on the organ to pop back over in the picture. I totally forgot them, so likely the next morning the organist likely thought there was a strange looking spider on the organ. hehe, it makes me laugh when i think about it.
Luckily, the pictures taken with them on still looked great so there was nothing to worry about.
Sorry this got off topic, but i thought I would share
Good luck with the falsies!

Thanks ladies! One thing I forgot . . . how do I take them off?

They’ll come off easily once you pull, just gently peel them off 🙂
