So I am getting my makeup professionally done for the wedding. I think the makeup will be bare minerals. Should i buy fake eyelashes for the day? If so, where? I am not looking to spend a whole lot of money on eyelashes as i think i already have somewhat full eyelashes. what do you think? any suggestions?

Do you have any pictures for make-up inspiration? I think lashes give a more dramatic look so it totally depends on what you are hoping to achieve.

If you aren’t sure, you might want to just buy the fakies and bring them to your trial (if you are having one) to test out. If you’re not having a trial, you could still bring some fake eyelashes along and get the advice of your makeup artist – they’ll know if your lashes are full enough to not need the fakes, or if it’ll add a nice “pop.”
As for where to get them – I got mine just in the makeup aisle at Target. My makeup artist suggested getting the individual lashes instead of the ones that are all attached – that way, they can decide exactly where to place them and how many to use. Don’t forget to buy the adhesive too – it should be right next to the lashes. Mine weren’t expensive at all (less than $10 I think) and turned out great.

I went for a make-up trial because I’m getting my make-up done for the wedding. My make-up artist swears by the drug store brand Ardell. They have lots of variety. I think they are good as well.I went to Ulta Cosmetics-not sure if you have one, but they offered to put them on for me…for free.
Not sure if you live near a MAC, but they sell them and apply them on you for $13.
You just need to decide between single lashes and a whole set. I love both and strongly rec. some kind of fake eyelashes!!!! Worth the practice and the $15 or less money

When I had my makeup done at my wedding she put them on me. Have you checked to see if your make up artist uses them routinely?

If you’re getting it done professionally, I would just call up your MUA and ask about it. My MUA had them on hand.

I bought some at Sephora for like 8 bucks for my wedding. I had always heard to just do the half ones and they were great. It took a few minutes to get used to them, but after that I couldn’t tell they were there. I cried a lot and they stayed on. I would highly recommend it.

Whatever you choose, make sure you try it ahead of time. Some mascaras (like Dior) can make your lashes look very full and dramatic on their own.

Thanks for all of the advice ladies! i guess i was just expecting them to be more expensive… it sounds like the majority think to definitely use them!
