I say fake eyelashes all the way. But nothing too heavy. Also do not suggest attempting yourself

I have long eyelashes as well, and I wore falsies the day of.  I used the individual ones.

If you are comfortable doing it yourself, go for it.  Every once in a while I play dress up and do my own with no problem.

I would ask the MUA for another trial and try them!  I had them (individual ones) for my trial and my wedding and loved them.  Funny related story actually – my dad can be somewhat oblivious, in terms of beauty makeovers.  However, when I came home from my trial he stared at me for a long time, said he like it and then said “your lashes look….lashier!” I laughed for a long time over that.

I have long eyelashes and was planning on having fake eyelashes but by the time the makeup artist (MAC) finished it looked like i already had them on! so i didn’t need them.

I was thinking about falsies too… I have no idea how to put them on! Anyone have a nice step by step?

I was thinking I didn’t want them because I thought they would look too dramatic or fake. But my friend who got married last year recommended them, and she had some really natural looking ones from MAC! They added some length and fullness to her lashes and the MAC ones come in so many different styles that you can get any look you want! I went to MAC a few months back and had them recommend me a set. They also taught me how to put them on and I’ve been practicing. I sucked so much at first but I think I’m finally getting the hang of it and will be putting on my own for the wedding!

i wear fake eyelashes all the time! definitely do it for the wedding. MAC makes some great ones that are dramatic but not too intense.

People wear fake lashes not just for length but also for fullness. So if you want fuller lashes then yes you can add fake lashes but just be sure to use to ones that come seperated rather than a full lash cos the full ones usually look too obvious.

@SweetRose2011:From what I’ve heard, I think they will do your make up for you as long as you buy $50 of product. They’ll also put the fake lashes on you if they’re new and unopened. The lashes are about $15 a pair (might be cheaper in the US) but that can count towards your product total.

like you, i have really long lashes and they are a PAIN sometimes! i want to do fake lashes since it’s supposed to make them all KA-BAM!, but i’ll been failing so far. i just now tried to put them (in 2 parts since when i try and do the whole strip i just can’t) and i STILL don’t like it! i’m not wearing any of my normal eye makeup in these either. so, pic 1 is normal eye, pics 2-4 are stages of failing at putting them on, and pic 5 is back to normal with some mascara. womp wooooomp. maybe i need to try individual lashes (will that help with the volume i want?) or have a pro do them. blarrrrrrg.

I like fake lashes because they help your eyes pop in pictures. Plus they stay curled better than real lashes.

Do a trial run with and with out them – take a photo from further away (3/4 to full lenght). I guarantee that regardless of how awesome your real lashes look up close they’ll disappear in photos that are further away.

And while you’ll have a few close shots most will be from further away. Plus if lashes are done correctly you can’t tell they’re there (have them use individual lashes NOT strips).

@SweetRose2011: my suggestion is two-fold and i hope it doesn’t come across as offensive:

1. you might want to just try having your eyebrows arched (waxed). it will be a dramatic change and might add to the look of your current lashes thus negating the need to wear falsies.

2. skip advice #1 and go get fakes. they will brighten your entire look. i wear them all the time.
