I think they look beautiful either way. I am a big fan of dramatic eyes, so if you were twisting my arm I would say wear the lashes. But if natural is your thing it deffintly doesn’t look like your natural lashes are sparse at all!

christoffels:  love the dress! Yes, the mascara makes a difference but also, you need to trim the eyelashes to fit your eye, at least make,them 3/4 if not half size. 

You will want waterproof mascara in case you cry. I don’t like to put a lot on, just enough so the lashes blend with the false lashes. My preference for most bridal make up is subtle glam unless it’s highly stylized or themed, so I would try the individual lashes on you with an emphasis of outer eye to give you a subtle cat eye. Some women prefer a more Kim K look with big fake lashes, which is also pretty. (I’m a MUA, but the individual lashes are easy to put on, just practice in advance, see if you like them. )

you have gorgeous skin and eyes, so,you can’t go wrong. It’s just about getting the look you prefer:-)

I am with @tinatiny1, individual lashes are likely your best bet. They give you a glam factor, but not overpowering if done correctly. Good luck!

christoffels:  I’m not sure if its in your budget, but have you given eyelash extensions a thought? My friend got them done for her wedding, went with a little longer than her normal lashes and they stay on for a month. They looked natural, but were long and dramatic enough with a good mascara. 

If you want to stick with the falsies, trying trimming the ones you currently have or doing individual lashes like the previous posters mentioned. If you got with individuals, definitely practice ahead of time, I have a hell of a time getting mine on…

If you’re going to buy new mascara I would recommend Benefit “Yes They’re Real” and I feel like I’ve tried them all. If cost is a factor and you don’t normally wear mascara, go to Ulta and ask if there is anything you can buy (that you use) for a sample.

Also, it sounds stupid but dab some baby powder in between coats.

I LOL’d at the panda comment… hahahahahaha

I think you should go with the more dramatic ones – photos wash people out a bit, so it will stand out.

christoffels:  your big fake lashes look GREAT! I can’t wait to have my falsies on. I used to get lash extensions all the time… it was so awesome!

I actually like your look with the lashes. If you wanted to try individual ones they tend to be more natural, but are more time consuming. Not too hard though. There are videos online, I would just use strip lash glue rather than individual lash glue so it comes off easier. If you want to try trimming your do it width-wise so they would only be on the outer 1/2 or so of your eye. Making the actualy lashes shorter would probably be too hard to keep even.

As for mascara I swear by waterproof Diorshow. I think regardless of ehether you think you’ll cry or not waterproof is a good way to go because it tends to hold a curl better.

christoffels:  I mean trim them so they don’t start so soon on the inner eye. Trim them width wise. This will make them look more natural and they won’t stick up in the inner eye, if that makes sense.
