horsebee :  I don’t have loads of photos on my phone but here are 2 pro shots and one candid by a friend – I experimented with lashes but it was just one fiddly thing too many former to worry about on the day. I don’t’  wear them in real life so felt it would be too “much” for me. I am very happy with my photos!

I don’t have any close ups on my phone, but I didnt wear false lashes. If you have naturally long lashes I wouldnt worry about it. I used a primer that really plumped up the volume and length and then used my regular mascara. My lashes were plenty long and you could see them in pics without me feeling like I had caterpillars on my eyes. I would try some primers first (they have drugstore brands that work well) and see how you like it.

I love false lashes, but they’re not for everyone. I worked for MAC for quite a long time (~6 years I think?) and I have done my fair share of bridal. I have two suggestions. 

Have you thought of doing only corner lashes? They’re half the size, they give you some volume & length on the corners of your eyes without being over the top, as if you have amazing mascara on. Ardell makes corners or you could cut a regular pair to a size that suites your style. A lot of times when I would cut the lashes in half I would use the part that was orginially meant for the inner corner of your eye, closest to your nose (I hope that makes sense). Since some lashes are made to gradually flare out, the inner portion would look more sutble on the corners of your lashes but still provide volume and length. They are also much easier to apply because you’re not dealing with a whole strip, this may be useful on a joyously stressful day like your wedding. 

Also, I’ve had some really great success with a lash serum. I have thick blonde lashes but they’re not long at all. I started using Organys lash serum and I have noticed alot of increased length especailly when I wear mascara, you have to be consistant with it though. It might give you alittle extra you want without worrying about lashes. https://www.amazon.com/Organys-Eyelashes-Eyebrows-Conditioner-Appearance/dp/B019EXWVQY/ref=sr_1_4_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1535025967&sr=8-4&keywords=organyc+lash+and+brow+serum

frenchtoastvegan :  Please don’t use Organys lash serum!!! I used it for almost three months and it gave me a really bad eye infection that I’m still dealing with over two months later. I originally bought it because it had over 10,000 5-star reviews on Amazon, but once I started realizing that it might be the serum that was giving me trouble I looked further into the reviews and discovered that there were a LOT of people going through the same problem. Since then, the company has deleted all of their reviews on Amazon.

atlonglast :  Oh that’s terrible, I am so sorry to hear! I have been using it since April but haven’t had any issues. Although, I find it really unnerving that they’ve deleted reviews, that’s never a good sign! 

OP, my suggestion of the lash serum is only a suggestion. Please use caution!

horsebee :  I don’t wear mascara, it irritates my eyes. I had a lash lift and tint about a week before the wedding and was super happy with the results.

If you’re concerned about your application day of, try lash extensions. I got them for my wedding and honeymoon right after and they looked great. I asked for natural volume and I was so happy with them – they also lasted all through my honeymoon without ever having to worry about mascara. I don’t have any close up photos to show unfortunately.

No fake lashes for me… my little sister did my make up and I’m happy with my decision:) Just a small amount of waterproof mascara.

horsebee :  I didn’t maintain them really, washed them when I washed my face, brushed them with a clean spoolie – they were a one time thing for me so I just let them grow out after all the wedding events were over. It took about a month for them to come off completely. The grow out process didn’t look too bad as I wear mascara on a daily basis anyways so that helped cover up the sparseness near the end.

I just wanted to avoid racoon eyes in the ocean and have beautiful lashes for the wedding. The lash extensions did both of those things for me.

It was pouring rain on our wedding day and I was concerned about strip lash adhesive so I skipped them. I had been using a serum to promote growth/length but I was totally happy with having a more natural lash look!

horsebee :  the lash lift, lasted a little over a month. Optimum results were in the first few weeks. If you decide to get it done, do your research on technicians, they are not all equal. I loved it so much I got it done again a few months after the wedding. The second time I didn’t really notice a difference (different tech)
