In the midst of our Wedding Season D’Shannon is back with great advice for our beautiful brides. Today’s subject? Eyelashes are for everyone!
As with every sort of makeup we’ve all seen it done wrong, but my little divas, do not dismay.
Whether you are a glamour goddess or a bare beauty, you can have the lovely lashes of your dreams with no drag queen drama if you follow these instructions. It will be more gorgeous than you can imagine, and the camera will LOVE you! Remember your face is the focus. Most of your photos will be captured from mid and full length. Do not let your dress steal the spotlight! There are three ways to do this right….
- Lash Extensions: This is a professional application and is bonded to your own lashes in a way that lets the lash fall out naturally over time. It’s amazing because it will last through the honeymoon and you will look extra hot on the beach because they are waterproof. Just remember all pros are not equal. Go in for a first set to make sure you get the style you love, and then have them refilled to perfect the look up to the big day.
- Temporary False Lash Strips: Contrary to popular belief these, if applied properly, are very pretty. All eye shadow should be applied prior to the lash strip so no dust gets on the lashes. It should in most cases be applied using a latex adhesive which dries invisibly. This lash literally comes in 1000’s of styles and sizes; the trick is in having an artist who is talented in choosing the proper fit and style for you. Economical and relatively tear resistant one-day wear with easy painless removal.
- Semi-permanent individual lashes: These are also a favorite and can be applied in any style you prefer. They are designed to be worn for a few days, and applied with an adhesive that must be removed using an oil based makeup remover. Application is a little more time consuming, but you can expect these to last a couple days at least. The only drawback is that many people are sensitive to the adhesive which can cause them to tear up during application, but once they are on you can cry your eyes out and they won’t budge!
