hi everyone. it’s been a while since i posted. i have been considering my “eyelash” options for my wedding. i am a pale, strawberry blonde with very short, minimalist eyelashes.
i posted on here before about eyelash extensions. i know some people love them, but i can’t decide between extensions and just using individual false eyelashes on the day. i don’t care too much about having the eyelashes for the 4-6 week time period, but want them to look as natural as possible.
will the extensions look more natural than the falsies? anyone have opinions to help me decide? thanks

Anything you wear is going to seem a little funky to you since you have light colored lashes- but give a false set a trial run during the day and see if they work for you. The extensions are actually the better way to go IMO because it’s so individualized. Expensive, but nice.

I too have very blonde eyelashes. I like to get mine dyed/tinted black. Really makes a difference but doesn’t last as long as I’d like. I like them best the day after the tinting.

Miss Rainbow has an excellent tutorial on false lashes. Since it’s fairly cheap, i’m going to try them & see how it looks. And, did I read somewhere that you aren’t supposed to use mascara with extensions? I wonder how that would look with your light colored lashes. Good luck! I’d love to see pics since I’m in the same situation.

I would test out a couple options now with the false eyelashes. If you are using a makeup artist, they should be able to help you have amaing lashes and not look out of place on your face. Try googling for pictures to get an idea of how dramatic you would like.

I bet the false lashes can look natural if you do them right, and they’d be less expensive as the previous posters said.
I have to add… that picture of LiLo is depressing. She used to be so pretty and normal looking!
