I’m in talks with my makeup artist about utilising fake eyelashes for the big day. Problem is, I know it’s gonna be a cryfest. I’m wondering if any of you have any experience with false eyelashes and did they survive the waterworks? I feel like I am going to be crying (tears of joy of course hahah) from start to finish, so am debating between false eyelashes or more permanent lash extensions! I don’t want my false eyelashes to fall off mid-ceremony, ha! Thanks in advance! 🙂

Lord, my falsies survive a soccer game in 35+ weather. Sweat is dripping from my nose and they stay on there. I don’t touch my face, though and will pat with a towel. If you have a quality MUA with quality products you’ll be fine. Just don’t rub. Patting is fine, but rubbing can weaken the glue quickly.

No you’re good. Bring a little extra glue in case the sides start to lift (I alwayssss have glue with me when I wear falsies or go somewhere I know others will too lol) but yeah, you should be fine as long as they are applied correctly. Also, don’t rub it!!

I sobbed at my last shower in fake eyelashes (cheapies that I applied myself and I’m an amateur) and they stayed wonderfully! Like PP said, with any sort of makeup, dab dont wipe the tears.

Because I didn’t have experience with fake eyelashes (of the temporary glue-on variety) I opted for lash extensions for my wedding, no hassle and worry about them coming off at some inopportune moment. As added bonus they lasted through the honeymoon too which was nice as I don’t tend to wear makeup to the beach and with my naturally pale lashes and eyebrows I look a bit weird with a tan and no makeup to frame my eyes, so the lash extensions were good for me.
If you want to do a winged eyeliner with lash extensions I recommend really practising as it will be more difficult (but fully possible) and you need to use a water soluble eye liner that will just dissolve and Not come off in bits (best one I found is Sensai liquid liner – super easy to use and it is refillable). I didn’t pay attention to that and used my usual Chanel liquid liner which comes off in rubbery bits which gets entangled in the roots of the extensions. I had to carefully drag the eyeliner bits out of my extensions with a pair of tweezers, luckily I managed to not pull any lashes out but I wouldn’t recommend making this mistake!

i wore false lashes for my wedding and did cry like a baby (well a little less than a baby, but more than i expected). the lashes held well, didn’t even twitch or moved. so you will be ok 🙂

What about investing in getting eyelash extensions for the occation?
I love mine. They can be as natural or dramatic as you want and your MUA can work with whatever makeup they want. Also no mascara is at all necessary. I dont feel mine at all. they shed with my natural eyelashes and i dont ever have to worry about raccon eyes.

I found that doing indiviudal lashes look and feel more natural than strip lashes. No line either.
If an idivual lifts, no big deal, if the edge of the strip lifts then you’re in trouble.
Ask your MUA if she can apply individual lashes, or if you are going for a makeup trial, ask her to do one strip lash and one eye individual lash and compare.

What kind of glue did you use? I’m going to a concert and staying 2 days before in line and I know I’m definitely going to cry.

have you considered eyelash extensions? I think they are supposed to give the same look but stay on through washing and stuff so crying shouldn’t bother them. I’ve never had them myself, but I’ve seen people on youtube talk about having them. Also if you keep a tissue or handkerchief handy you can try to catch the tears at the corner of your eye before they run, that’s basically my plan. Also it just occurred to me now as I’m typing, and I think I’ll try this myself, but if you really want to test it when you do your makeup test run, once your sure you’re in for the night, watch a video that you know will make you cry and just see how it holds up.

I did my makeup myself and I’m pretty comfortable putting on/wearing falsies. I felt like the ends of mine were slipping a few times, so I fixed mine throughout the day with clear eyelash glue and it was no big deal. Eyelash extensions would be good too as long as if you get extensions, you do research and get quality extensions. Lash extensions have come a long way since they first started popping up, but bad extensions or messing with them a lot can still be damaging to your natural lashes.

I have had extensions off and on for a year and I am obsessed! Am currently giving my lashes a break, but I miss them! Do the extensions, because then u will lcall ok fab for your honeymoon as well! I also think they will hold up better if you are crying.
