Last week I posted my first attempt at applying individual lashes (here). Here is the 2nd below. I had much more success, and I think I can do it myself, rather than going to a salon to have them applied or using strip lashes that look more obvious. I tried to make them thicker, and applied mascara to my lower lashes. This is the eye makeup I plan to use for the wedding. What do you think?

They look awesome! I wish I was that skilled:)

Your eyes are gorgeous! The lashes are a bit long towards the outter edge for my taste, but I think it will probably look really good in the wedding pictures. I wore very “natural” looking falsies for my wedding, and they barely showed up in photos.

Wow – those look great! Very realistic. I remember your earlier post and while I didn’t think the earlier ones looked bad, these are amazing!
Did you use tutorials online or something? What lashes did you use?

@MsBlackberry: They look great! What eyelash glue did you use?

Love! I can never apply them so I had to have them professionally applied and they charged me up the butt!

@MsBlackberry: These look SO SO good! I usually use falsies but not individual ones. How long did it take you to do?

@Jennlee: Thanks! I looked at some online tutorials, but honestly I did not really follow them One suggested putting the lashes UNDER your own, but I read that this could cause eye infections/get glue in your eyes.
The first time I tried them, I was using too much glue, and the lashes would not stay on/kept sliding out of position. I just put a tiny drop on the end of the lash, and then put it on top of my own lashes as close to my eyelid as possible without toucing.
I did not leave much space between the lashes, but did not have them touching at the base either. I think I used 8-9 lashes per eye.
These photos are also better because I have a better eyeliner on (Too Faced “Perfect Expresso), and I am wearing more eye makeup.

@mrswestcoast: Thanks, I thought I would have to resort to going in to my local Ulta and having them applied. There, they only charge the cost of the lashes plus $10 to apply them for you.
@TO_Cali: I think it took about a half hour, but this was only the second time I’ve done it. I’m sure I will be faster next time.
@MrsNewDay: The lashes and glue were by Ardell. It was the only brand of individual lashes at the store.
The glue comes in a tiny glass bottle, and it WILL NOT come out on its own. I had to use a toothpick to break the suction inside each time I needed some glue. You only need a tiny bit each time, though.
The last time I removed them, the remover didn’t work very well BUT I also has used WAAAAY too much adhesive, so I think this time they will come off easily.

Here is what they look like with a camera flash (just the one on my wimpy point-and-shoot camera, held about a foot or so from my face).
