I can’t believe it, my wedding is THIS Saturday! I am so excited! Quick question for those who know about make up and stuff (which is definately not me!). I would like to get fake eyelashes for the wedding, because mine are very blonde and thin (almost non existant!). Can anyone recommend a good brand/kind to get? I’ve never worn them before.
Also, I have my make-up trial on Thursday. I can’t decide if I want airbrush or regular. I’m afraid that airbrush will make me look plastic? My skin is very nice, aside from a few freckles, which I actually like! Please let me know what you suggest!
Thanks so much!

I would check with your makeup stylist – they should be able to provide these. They may charge $10-20 more for the lashes and application. But it’s better to trust the professional’s judgement then picking a set that you’ve never used before.

I would buy lashes and try to put them on yourself today. Eyes are so sensitive and not used to having glue stuck up near them. If you have a negative reaction, trying them out for the first time on Thursday may not give you enough time till Saturday to get over it. I used cheapo individual lashes from Wal*Mart and they looked great. A lot of bees swear by the strips from MAC.

If you haven’t worn them before, I just want to point out that they can weigh your eyes down. I tried them out during my make up trial and in about an hour, I felt a considerable weight on my eyes.
I would also suggest that instead of wearing the whole set, why not try them in strands placed strategically? That will DEFINITELY look more natural! And also won’t feel like anything’s really there. I am planning to do that.

I honestly would buy lashes from Target, they are great and light on the eyes. Airbrushing is tricky. You have to wash your face REALLY good because the particles are so fine they “stick” to the pores. I have always been a fan of traditional makeup and setting it with an invisible setting powder, ie: Makeup Forever has a great one. Good luck!
