The Eyes Have It



My what big, beautiful eyes you have! After speaking with several real brides and make up artists, they've all agreed that big beautiful eyelashes provide instant glamor on the day of.

To achieve the perfect mega watt glam look, I recommend using false eyelashes, and no, not your mom's 80's style pageant ones. You can find many a natural faux lash fix that will be the perfect fit for you. Not only that, the effect is temporary and you can decide on the look without having to make a large financial investment (like eyelash extensions or lash growth product).

For brides planning to have a make up artist with you on your wedding day, make sure to include false eye lashes in your trial runs. Going solo? The experts all agree, to make the look natural, practice, practice, practice - before the big day of course! Though individual lashes can require a bit more time and finesse to apply, the effect is more natural. If patience is not your forte, use a strip of false eyelashes and make sure to trim the piece to fit your own unique eyes. You can also trim the strip into halves or thirds for a subtle effect. Once your lashes are applied, don't forget to apply a coat of mascara and a little eyeliner to blend everything together.

I agree, that lashes can do so much for an eye-catching effect. As a make up artist I agree, a trial is the best thing to assure a flawless look. Sometimes just a few individual lashes give just what is needed at the ends when ladies are lucky enough to have some long, lush lashes, like my bride yesterday! Great post!

I am a HUGE fan of false eyelashes. I model and would never ever do a photo shoot without them (ok I did once). So on my big day for the photographs I would not think of not wearing them. In fact, I am on a bridal quest to find the Christian Dior eyelashes that I wore the night I got engaged :)

False lashes mean that hey show up really well in photos, when normally they hardly do at all. They add real ooomph to all but the most boho of looks...

I don't know what to do for my wedding. I already have big eyes and long, dark lashes. I can't possibly put on eyeliner or mascara. I look like I am getting ready for halloween. This has always been a problem for me when it comes to formal events. I never thought my make-up matched the event. I looked like 'me in a dress'. I want to look like 'FANCY me in a dress'! :D I have had my make up professionally done and it looked alright, but it was not worth the price of the Dior make up artist. I look silly in lipstick because I have thin lips and a wide jaw. Lipstick draws attention to my wide chin that I hate.

I figure I will throw on my shimmery eyeshadow and smile a lot.
