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!

I have tried the semi-perm eyelash extensions, but not in California. They are pretty awesome if you can get them done by the right person and keep up with the maintenance. The semi-perm are supposed to stay on throughout the duration of your actual eyelash life cycle. So when ur eyelash naturally falls out, that’s when the extension will fall off, with it. Its amazing how you can add them and they make my straight lashes curl.
My biggest issue with them was that i have oily skin and oily eyelids. So they seemed to come off quicker than they should have. Also, I live in DC so maintenance was hard.
HOWEVER, my aunt did them in CA. she had them down from a vietnamese lady in/near rowland heights. I believe its like 150-200 and 50/maintenance. Just be weary, b/c the first time my aunt did it, the lady used cheap glue or something and burned off ALL her eyelashes… after that, she still got them done elsewhere and had long eyelashes until she got tired of the maintenance.
I think for a one time deal – for a month or so, special occasion like a wedding – its worth the 200-300 to get it done right. I plan to so that i can have beautiful eyelashes on my honeymoon without even trying 🙂
Hope this helps!

PLEASE READ..Yes any Asian store is a good idea, also Little Tokyo has a shiseido store that sells eyelashes from Japan. Your make-up artist should bend them a bit before sticking them on sort of roll them to loosen up but it is possible you might be irritated by anything. Mac cosmetics sells 2 kinds of eyelash glue at the actual Mac Storefronts. As for the semi-permanent…my best friend had them done by someone fabulous in Beverly Hills (she does all the stars) my dear friend had a reaction and by her wedding day…had lost many of her own lashes and was slightly pink-ish. I say despite the cost you have to do a trial run…I cant reccommend trying anything new for the wedding…including hairspray, lipstick, mascara…-you just never know

Try MAC. Their lashes are pretty good and affordable. They even carry lower eyelashes!!! However, you can only find them at a MAC store, not a counter in a department store.
I have heard bad things about the lashes implent. Some said they do not last a very long time, and it looks very weird when they start coming off. I would say fake eyelashes are probably gonna be safer! You really can’t tell they are fake anyway if you do a good job putting them on.

I debated lash extensions before my wedding too, but they were too pricey and took too much up-keep. Definitely check out Shu Uemura lashes. They have incredible fake eyelashes (some crazy fun ones with glitter and feathers, but also reasonable ones that are natural looking and curled nicely. You just have to trim them to the length of your eyes.) They are a bit pricey but you can re-use the lashes if kept clean.
My Make-up artist ended up using my Shu Uemura ones (# 501) just because they worked much better on my asian eyes. Looked natural but really long 🙂

I ditto justjules. It’s all about cutting the lashes to make them fit your eyes.
I’ve heard great things about Shu Umera, but I usually just use the cheap ones I find at the grocery store.
If you’re willing to spend the $$, I’ve heard great things about semi-permanent eyelash extensions, as well as things like RevitaLash that lengthen your eyelashes noticeably (my mom and sister both got great results from RevitaLash).

My friend is having her makeup done by the lovely Mrs. Caramel and her team! My sister (friend’s MOH) loved the makeup and had me search for the very same fake lashes she used. She used a brand called "SHISM." It’s a Korean brand and they have a gazillion types. I say use the fake lashes if you think lash extensions will not work – fake ones are also a hell of a lot cheaper!
