Just wondering what everyone’s thoughts were on fake eyelashes. I have really sparse, short lashes and am debating on wearing them on the big day. I have never really worn falsies out…have tried them on before and always feel so fake wearing them. Any recommendations on very natural looking false eyelashes? Or should i not even bother wearing them?

I think a lot of Bees had great experiences with them and would highly recommend them.
I had them for my boudoir photo shoot and because I have very sensitive eyes, I was miserable with them on (eyes watering and itching). I had the MAC lashes, profesionally put on.
I think if you get them done professionally, you’ll be more happy than putting htem on yourself. I would definitely do a trial run though, to make sure you like the length and that you can wear them comfortably.

Lashes are a tough one. Sometimes they can look perfectly natural and very pretty, often they can look crazy, scary, drag queen. I’d say only wear them on the outer half or quarter and don’t go overboard, keep them pretty short. Generally the ones that are in small clusters look more natural (rather than the full eyelash line). Go to a mac counter or somewhere similar and have them put them on for you. You’ll have to pay for it, but it will give you a better idea. And make sure you ask someone who’s personal makeup isn’t crazy over the top herself 🙂

I would go for individual lashes OR half lashes that you can put on the outer corners instead of a whole strip. It’ll feel lighter and look more natural because you won’t have a big band going across your lids. Definitely trim them a bit so they’re only a tiny bit longer than your natural lashes otherwise they won’t blend as well. Good luck, practice makes perfect! 🙂

@OKbride2b:I did the individual ones and they were AWESOME. I wish I had known about them earlier. Fairly easy to do, too. I would have done them for prom, parties… anything if I knew before how easy they were! I got a cheap kit at Walgreens and used liquid liner to hide the glue. Looked amazing.

I LOVED my eyelash extensions. I had them professionally done by a lady that did them for Lavish Lashes. They were very expensive, I didn’t mind too much shelling out that for the special occassion, but I wouldn’t have them done on a regular basis. One plus is that my eyes and skin tend to be extremely sensitive but the glue she used didn’t bother them at all. I did do a trial run just in case!

I am a big fan of fake eyelashes. I plan on using them on my big day, and I have used them many times before. I think that the ones that are most natural looking are the individual ones.They take some more time to apply but they look awesome.

Hi, I am a beauty therapist and would definately recommend a professional applying the semi-permenant indiidual lashes, thy are far more natural looking because they are attatched to each eyelash and they vary in curls and length to suit each client. I think it’s worth the money, there’s some things which are better left to the professionals IMO.
