Your wedding is for one thing and one thing only: dress like a damn queen and own yourself. You have the best dress, the biggest, best hair, and an amazing face. But when you cry at the altar, your mascara runs down your face. Now that you’ve gone from princess to panda, there will be photos and Instagram stories to prove it.
Ladies, that’s why eyelash extensions have become the ultimate bridal accessory to know what’s good. DIOAT.com thinks they’re as important as manicures and tanning, and they’re totally right. For budding brides, friends of the bride or just eyelash aficionados, we’ve created a guide to what you need to know about eyelash extensions on your wedding day.
Why Should You Consider Eyelash Extensions For Four Big Day?
So why hang up your mascara and get your lashes fixed on your wedding day? In addition to making you look like Bambi, here are some other benefits:
1. The persistent
Eyelash extensions can last up to six weeks, so by the end of your wedding night, you’ll have long, thick lashes. Bring bedroom eyes on your honeymoon and enjoy a vacation without the morning eye makeup routine. (Warning: Your husband may be shocked when you get home and start spending hours in the bathroom again).
2. No mid-wedding maintenance
Your big day is already stressful and the last thing you want to think about is, ‘Is my mascara running? Do I have stripes on my eyeliner? Eyelash extensions provide you with perfect eye makeup that doesn’t need to be fixed every few hours, giving you one less thing to worry about and more time to get to the dance floor.
3. Surgery without surgery
It’s always the little things that make a big difference, and eyelashes are one of them. Grafting lashes will enhance your facial features, make your eyes bigger and bolder, and distract you from fine lines and other blemishes you don’t want to focus on when trying to look like a flawless princess.
We mentioned it at the beginning, but we must say it again. The last thing you want to wear in a beautiful wedding dress is to look like a panda or emo, and everyone knows that crying with mascara is likely to get you down that road. As long as you have eyelash grafts a few days before your wedding, you can cry as much as you want while maintaining your perfect appearance.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE GETTING WEDDING EYELASH EXTENSIONS
• Know your options
There are different types of lashes to choose from, from clumps to single lashes. Tufted lashes won’t last long, but will give you a gorgeous, doll-like Kendall Jenner look. Individual lashes last longer and provide a more natural, fuller eyelash effect.
Would you like a tint with that?
This option is almost a must for women with blonde or light lashes. Eyelash tones darken your lashes to ensure they match your extended shadows. This will make your eyes bolder and fuller.
• Half or full set
Eyelash extensions are available in half or full sets. If you want a glamorous look, a full set of lashes will give you thick, bold lashes. For women who want a more natural and soft look, half sets will do the job perfectly.
Like a fake tan, you really don’t want to walk into a salon the day before your wedding and hope for the best. The same goes for eyelash extensions. Get a wedding eyelash extension a month or two before your big day to try out the suit you will wear on your wedding day. This will give you the opportunity to ensure that things look exactly as you want them to.
• Rethink your makeup bag
After you’ve grafted your lashes, you can put mascara away (unless you want to apply it to your lower lashes). If you have any oily creams or eyeliner, you must also put them aside as they can shorten the life of your lashes. If there are any must-have cleansers or makeup removers, look for alternatives so you don’t panic!
