YAY times 10!!

I wear fake lashes at all important occasions and they make me feel so much more beautiful. I trim them or have my makeup artist trim them a bit so they don’t look too unnatural.

They really make my eyes pop, and I have such short stubby lashes :-/

They take a few minutes to get used to, but then you forget that they’re there.

I just wore them for my friends bachelorette party and I LOVED them! I never wear them, but our friend had some extra pairs she had bought and she put a pair on me and it makes such a difference!!

Yes, I love them if they are the right ones.  There are SO many, so be careful. Some are much more heavier than others.  You can go for more natural ones if you’d like or half ones or have the lashes individually added for softness.

If you are doing it  yourself they take a little time to get it right so make sure you experiment first…lol. I ended up with one eye perfect and the other one way out there. I ended up taking them off and figure I will try a different day.

I wore false lashes for my wedding. My makeup artist chose a set of really natural looking ones and cut off the inside 1/4 of the strip so they wouldn’t be overwhelming. They took a little while to get used to after my makeup trial, but on my wedding day I barely noticed they were there, and they made my eyes look incredible in our photos.

You can also try individual lashes or lash extensions if you want a more subtle look.

I tried them and liked them, but my mom said I looked like a hooker… so… I nixed them.  I felt sexy though, so I may try them again for special nights… πŸ˜‰

YAY!

i looooved having fake lashes on and it made my eyes stand out much more than normal and they show up really really well in pictures

you dont notice them once they are on and they dont hurt to take off.

i would HIGHLY reccommend fake eyelashes for any big occassion -especially if you are having your picture taken

I agree with @linguo42.  When I went for my trial my makeup artist used the same technique.  I didn’t want to take the lashed off when I got home.  I felt like me only more glamorous!  I wish I could wear them every day!

I wore fake lashes in a friend’s wedding!  They feel weird at first, but get adjusted.  I don’t like a lot of makeup, but I really liked the lashes.

To be honest, though, I didn’t like the fake lashes they put on the bride.  They were wayyy too long.  Mine was great though!

Experiment.  Find some that look natural and you’ll be great!  πŸ™‚

I am a newly converted YAY! I’d never worn them before–my mom scared me with horror stories of glue clogging up her eyelash pores–but I gave them a shot for my makeup trial, and I loved them! They were a little long and full for my taste, so we’ll be going smaller and more subtle on the big day. But they seriously felt so comfortable and made my eyes look amazing. I love them! My sister also ran out and bought her first pair after she saw mine. πŸ™‚

I love the individual fake lashes and will be wearing those for my wedding.  I had the strip lashes for my boudoir photos and while they looked great, they made my eyes water a lot and felt too feathery/long.  I would definitely experiment with different lashes and different looks so you get exactly what you want.

I love fake lashes! We used to wear them all the time when I was on the dance team. They feel kinda heavy at first but you get used to them pretty quickly.

My BIGGEST recommendation is to try them out first. It turned out I was allergic to the glue that I got to wear them with and it made my eyes red and puffy, so I switched to a hypo-allergenic and didn’t have another problem.

Wear fake lashes!!! It took a long time to convince me, and it took me a long time to convince my bridesmaids, but in the end we all did it and were extremely happy with it.  So you can try to resist now, but in the end you will end up doing it anyway and you will love it πŸ˜‰

I cant stand fake lashes I can never get used to them. I have been told that i dont need them anyways. So in my case nay on the fake lashes… just rock some really good mascara..
