Honestly, I couldn’t bother with the fakes… fake anything for that matter. 

I’m going as simple as possible this time round… mascara for me.

Benefit has a great mascara called “they’re real.” One of the best I’ve used.

Benefit “They’re real” REALLY is good! I am currently rocking some awesome extensions though, and while I will probably be done with them as soon as wedding stuff is over I am really enjoying them for now! Also, I don’t feel like I have to wear ANY makeup (except maybe a touch of base) anymore, unless I want to be fancy! 🙂

It prob depends on what you have to start with. My lashes are so fine and short I can probably count the # I have on each lid in <10 seconds.  I went with falsies and am was pleased with the result. 

Less than $2. Ardell Fashion Lash – 120 Black Demi

I think it really depends. If you have fairly long lashes to start with mascara and curling them is probably enough.  I attempted falsies at my trial but I felt like they were too much. But I’m the type that has to be very selective when choosing sunglasses because my eyelashes touch most and make it hard to blink. Haha.

@lboatnerscott:  I think a great mascara is all you need.  I was wondering the samething and I talked to a lady at Bobby Brown, she showed me some fake lashes and then asked if i would be putting them on myself, i said yes and she said it can be hard to do and they can feel uncomfortable, she recomended going with a good mascara, so thats what I did and I am really happy.  Didnt want to be uncomfortable on my big day!

I’d say mascara.  But I hear really good things about lash tinting and lash extentions.  Always wanted to give them a try.

And on that note I’ve booked myself for a eyelash tint.  Will let you know what I think (it’s in a couple of weeks when I can free up more time!)

I will probably just be using mascara. I’ve been told I have a lot of lashes, so I am hoping that will be good enough! And now I want to try that mascara too! 😛

I actually recommend fake lashes.  I don’t think all fake lashes necessarily look fake.  Instead of getting a super thick line of lashes, pick a sort of lighter, sparser set that will emphasize your natural lashline.  Maybe something like this set: http://www.ardelllashes.com/product/12.

Just because you see notice other people’s fake lashes doesn’t mean they all look bad.  For example, my husband told me once that fake boobs, fake tans, and colored contacts all look really obviously fake and super gross.  And I was like, “But, see, you can only tell that they’re fake when they’re really bad.  You don’t notice the natural looking ones.  There are probably tons of people with GREAT breast implants, spray tans, and colored contacts.  You just don’t know because you think those are their natural breasts, skin and eye colors.”

Same with fake lashes.  I think you would really appreciate the extra oomph you get from some falsies–especially in photos.  I have fairly thick lashes, and I’m still REALLY glad I went with false lashes for my wedding.  Just remember to bring an extra tube of lash glue with you (or one of your BMs!) just in case.

My lashes are already thick and very long so just mascara for me. Plus with the fake eyelashes I worry they will remove all your real eyelashes so you will have no other choice but to continue getting fake eyelashes… Unless you want to be seen with BALD eyelids until your eyelashes grow back!

I would stay away from extensions to be honest. I worked at a spa and a lot of people came out with lashes that looked like spider legs – not attractive!

If you want more drama, I recommend adding false lashes – specifically the Ardell Demi Whispies. They’re not too long or fake looking but add just that right amount of oomph to your eyes!

I would go with fake lashes- but the individual lashes.  That is what my make up artist used and they looked full and natural.  The glue doesn’t take off your own lashes, it just washes off.  Sometimes you will have a little residue, but mine has always come off very easily.
