I really love the look of well done faux lashes, especially how nicely they show up in wedding photos but I am incapable of doing them myself and don’t really have the budget for a makeup artist at the moment…
Can anyone give any tips on how to ge this look without using fake lashes? Or any tips or recommendations for using falsies? What brands, types, techniques, anything you can recommend for getting this look, either with mascara or fake lashes?

i would see if one of our girls can put on false lashes, or if you cant pay for the makeup being done professional just go in and get the lashes put on, i work at a salon and i know we charge like 10 dollars for false lash application, you want them to look naturally and secure esp on the day of your wedding

@Kellylovesanthony: Thanks! I didn’t know salons would do just lash application. I definitely do want them to look natural and be secure so that is a great option!

@hlayers: Another bee told me a while back about the brand red cherry lashes and they are awesome and really cheap! You can order them on ebay or I think amazon might have them as well!

@hlayers: I’d never had them before but watched my MUA so that I could do them again on my own!
She put them up to my lashes to see if they need to be cut, if so do that.
Then to get them to blend in with your lashes she used a heated curler (MAGICAL!) 🙂

@hlayers: I always find the strips too difficult to use so I buy Quo or Ardene (I think) ones that are like little V’s with 3-4 lashes per V (does that make sense?). All you have to do with those is put a tiny bit of glue on the end and put it right at your lash line. I use 3-5 Vs for each eye and it’s very natural. You have to put them on very last, after mascara.

Thanks for the suggestions! I bought a few cheap sets and have been messing around trying to get better at it. The first pair were wayyyy too long and I looked like I was waiting for my turn on the casting couch. I have a set of the little V’s with 3-4 lashes each to try next. Here’s hoping I don’t rip out my existing lashes in the process!

@hlayers: Do you have these where you are? I’m in Australia and these WASP eyelashes havetaken off here. I never used to wear falsies, but since this has come in, I’m addicted! It has an applicator which after a few times makes it fool proof. If cost is an issue, they sell knock off type applicators on ebay for $1 including postage or something. Check out the youtube vids as well to see how it works! But I love the Wasp products and the glue. Just google it to see. Best of luck!

Youtube make up gurus are excellent resources for all your beauty tips and tricks. One of my favorites is Jen from frmheadtotoe. She pretty much has a tutorial for everything – how to apply blush, how to contour, how to apply highlighter, etc.
I actually picked up Sephora’s yearly lash stash in October 2012 and it had a set of fake lashes in them. I decided to use these, but have not actually looked at them until a few days ago. They’re the half lashes that go on the outter part and look great! I would recommend using half lashes instead of the whole ones just for a more natural effect.
