oops, sorry this got posted to the wrong board and i don’t know how to delete it from the other one. let me try again.
hi everyone, i was wondering if any of you knew any good brands or places to get fake eyelashes for asian eyes? i had my hair and makeup trial done, and my makeup person put fake eyelashes on, and they were wildly uncomfortable and very straight, and i am wondering if it’s just b/c i have asian eyes, or if they are always like that, as that was the first time i’ve ever had fake eyelashes put on me before. i’m hoping to find a good brand and maybe give it to her to put on me, but the wedding is in less than 3 weeks, so i need easy access! i read in the posts about japonesque and thi. anyone have experience with those brands or can recommend any other ones? thanks!

Ask if she can do individual lashes instead. I hate the band lashes, I’m a make up artist and I try to use the individual ones or the half bands (they go on the outer edges) Although I’ll take individual over anything else. You can place them where ever you want more lashes and they is usually 3-4 hairs per group of lashes.

I agree with MissStargazerLily – you can opt to put the individual ones.
It will take more time but shouldn’t be a problem 🙂
For mine, I will put the fake one and add the invidiaul ones as well coz I love the dramatic effect 🙂
Not sure which brand my MUA put on my trial, but it’s surprisingly very comfortable. I heard SHU UEMURA has a good one too.

Individual lashes are preferred. Check out Thi Cosmetics (www.thicosmetics.com) for the best ones.

I used MAC strip lashes and they looked very natural. They definitely take some getting used to, when they are first applied, it feels lit there’s spiderwebs on your eyes. But that feeling goes away after about 15 minutes when you get used to them.
Word of caution…after a few tears during the ceremony, one of them started falling off during our toasts. It’s difficult to get strip lashes to stay on when there’s crying, dabbing, etc., so pay the extra money to have your make-up artist avail at least until dinner starts to re-apply.
I now have the lash extensions that get reapplied lash by lash at monthly visits, I wish I had them during the wedding…

Have you though about getting eyeash extentions instead? A co-worker of mine gets these and they look soooo natural. They are a bit more expensive but she assures me they are super comfortable and feel like her own.

thanks for your comments girls! one of my co workers got eyelash extensions and i was very intrigued. but i heard that they can ruin your real eyelashes because they can pull out your real ones or somehow wreck the tips of them. is that true? i also heard something about allergic reactions. anyone hear of anything like that?

A friend of mine was told by her doctor to stop wearing eyelash extensions because they were irritating her eyes, but this was after extensive use. I can’t image they would cause long term damage after one or two uses, but don’t really know.

I had the strip lashes for my wedding and they felt fine. The length was just trimmed to fit my eye, but they looked and felt just great! I had Mrs Caramel help me, though…no way I could have done that myself!
