Luscious long lashes are a beauty must have for your big day.
If only to get a beautiful shot like this...sigh.
Whether you choose to go down the mascara (waterproof of course!), eyelash extensions or false eyelash route is a matter of personal preference.
I went for eyelash extensions and I was super happy with them on the day but within a week of married life, I was left with stumpy lashes. Not cool. Since then I've had a fabulous eyelash extension experience with London based beautician, Asma of Boudoir Lashes*
False Eyelashes For Your Wedding Day
False eyelashes are a great option for brides who want to add a little va va voom to their lashes on their big day but don't want to commit to 3-4 weeks and the expense of eyelash extensions.
With false eyelashes, there's no need to worry about losing/damaging your precious natural lashes as they attach to your eyelid as opposed to your individual lashes.
Thankfully false eyelashes have evolved so much from the thick, spider lashes of the 60s, that looked so heavy it's amazing anyone managed to keep their eyes open! There are lots of light, barely there options which enhance your natural lashes as well as more dramatic, glamourous options.
