Faking it

I have so many blessings to count in my life. Unfortunately, long "baby doll" eyelashes are not included. Certainly, I don't want to look like a completely different person on my wedding day but I would like to have a little but more in the eyelash department if I can pull it off. I've known this from the beginning of my wedding planning but since yesterday when I mentioned this to someone, they told me that I should actually start getting accustomed to wearing false lashes because of how heavy they can make your eyelids feel. Makes complete sense but I NEVER would have thought about such a thing had it not been mentioned to me.

So now I'm researching false lashes. From what I understand of my eyes (I'm Asian), I should get individual lashes instead of full strips. I also understand that when you wear them you still wear a little bit of mascara. *Please correct me if I'm wrong on this stuff!*

I'm planning on getting my make-up (like my hair) done for the wedding and I'm sure the make-up artist that I hire will have their own preferences/suggestions for false lashes but for my own "practicing" I have found "Make up for ever Individual lashes" from Sephora. There's also "ModelCo Lash Out: False Single Lashes."

Has anyone ever used these before? I'm curious how they would be for me to apply with my very novice abilities.

I have worn false lashes many times. Your makeup artist will be able to show you different types that will look more natural. When using a strip, I like to use MAC #3's because they're not too long or too thick.

You can use different types to make your eyes look different shapes. If you wear them longer in the middle, they'll make your eyes look more open. If you wear them longest in the outer corner, you'll get a "cat" kind of look.

Either way, you always start with a coat of mascara on your natural lashes, then add the false ones, and then use a lash curler to make sure they are all together and not in 2 separate rows as they extend out!
