Q: I love the look of false lashes, but I've never worn them myself. Should I try them for my wedding day? What advice do you have for me?
Gillian says: Aside from flawless skin, the priority of most brides is their eye make-up. The majority of brides want their eyes to pop and stand out without looking overly glam. For someone who's not wanting a heavy make-up look, often they'll believe a false lash will be too much for them, especially when they're not use to wearing them. If this sounds like you, my go-to lash is either a three-quarter-length lash or a cluster of individual lashes at the outer corner. With the latter, no strip is being placed across the length of the lash line, so they're much more comfortable to wear. I can guarantee that when wearing these, you'll hardly feel that they're there an no one will ever guess they are either. Whether you'd prefer a natural barely-there look or long and fluffy lashes on your wedding day, these beauties will do the job.
As bridal make-up artist, I'm a huge fan of a lash application and find that for photos and film, lashes really enhance my brides' eyes to make them shine though the lens. My advice is absolutely to be brave and try then out at your trial, and express how you feel with your make-up artist. It's our job to help you choose the style that's perfect for you. Try them, wear them in, get used to them. Keep checking yourself out in the mirror – I promise you'll love it. If you decide against them afterwards, then that's fine. But, trust me, when you have the complete look together, dress, hair and make-up, the lashes will look right at home.
