    I’ve had loads of success with Ardell lashes, and I personally prefer the strips if I’m applying them myself 🙂

    I’m no expert, but Carmindy on WNTW always suggests snipping the strip lashes in half and just putting them on the outer part of the eyelid. Obviously that wouldn’t work for really extreme/over the top fake lashes, but if you’re going for a more natural look and the lashes blend in fairly well with your own it might be worth trying (it looks good when she does it, anyway!). From what I hear, the individual lashes can be tricky to use, and now there are so many styles of strip lashes that you can get a lot of the benefits of the individual ones with way less hassle.

    @mrssrm:  I do that too, I have a hard time wearing the full strip so half is just enough.


    OP when you put the glue on make sure to give it a few moments to start to dry (blow on it if necessary) so it isn’t super wet when you apply. It takes practice and I’m certainly not a pro yet.

    I prefer strip lashes, however, I do tend to mix and match my strip lashes… I usually put on one pair of really subtle ones then I cut other pairs into pieces and just layer them on top when I want a more dramatic look.

    Just remember like a pp said, wait a little bit so the glue is tacky before you try to put them on… also invest in a pair of really fine tweezers to help push the ends down more… and always put an extra coat of mascara on after to blend the lashes together.  and make sure you have mascara on first! 🙂

    I use false lashes quite often. I prefer the strips. My favorite is the ardel wispies. If you’re having trouble with the full strip try the 1/2 strip ardel #301. Also, Revlon Precision Lash glue is the best!

    This video might help too!

    @lunathea:  I’m really anal about how my lashes look, so I have a whole mascara routine (it involves multiple wands (different shapes) and two different kinds of mascara… lol) so I usually put on two coats of mascara, then my lashes and then a light run through again after the fake ones are on to make it blend good.  Remember to wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes to help separate and blend. 🙂

    ETA:  I hired a makeup artist to do my make up for the wedding, but I have already made it clear I will be taking care of my mascara, THATS how obsessive I am about them. lol

    I happened to be at Sephora earlier today having an hour-long consultation with a MUA and I asked her this very question!  She told me that the full strip looks better for wedding photos.  Just my two cents since I don’t have much experience with falsies myself (yet)!

    I did strip lashes on my wedding day. I find them easier to apply, as you just apply them all at once. The individual lashes look great if you’re going for an everyday sort of look, but I personally think they take longer to apply.

    It took some practice to apply strip lashes, but now I can apply them quickly and easily. The ones I wore on my wedding day looked very natural, infact when I told people I was wearing falsies they were like “No!… really!?” lol!

    The cheaper brands of falsies are great for parties and stuff, but I like the more expensive brands for repeated uses, as they actually hold up. The ones I wore on my wedding day I actually wore 4 times beforehand.

    Mrs. Rainbow has an excellent tutorial on applying false lashes. She’s my go to bee for beauty and I think her tutorial is pretty good!

    My make-up artist used individuals, longer towards the outside, short towards the center.  One thing she did was put the mascara on first, then the lashes. 

    I was able to apply the individuals myself as well. You definitely don’t want a gob of super wet glue!
