Dear Brides….An Open Letter
Dear Brides: Please get the false lashes.
I’ve been a bridal makeup artist for several years now. I like special occasion makeup and I am absolutely fascinated by special effects but bridal beauty is my home. I love helping someone look and feel her most beautiful on a day where that goal is so important. When I recommend the lashes to you and your party, it’s not because I want to make you look like someone you’re not or get a few extra bucks out of you. This is really in your best interest.
My best example of the power of false lashes is a story that’s close to my heart…my own wedding. Let’s go back to June 7, 2014. I had hired an artist from Silver Immersion to help my bridesmaids get ready so I wouldn’t have to. I did end up doing my own makeup that day since getting ready for anything is my favorite time of the day and really helps to relieve anxiety for me. I had four bridesmaids; three got false lashes. I’m inserting a picture of my own wedding party below. See if you can pick out the one girl who’s not wearing them?
You don’t see the false lashes of the girl wearing them; you see her eyes. They really help to open up your eyes and provide a little extra definition. Here’s the same woman, one year earlier at her own wedding.
Yes, they feel a little funny at first. You have extra hairs right above your eye. The sensation goes away after 5 minutes and don’t feel any different than mascara. We won’t choose a lash that is too much for the look you’re going for. Again, it is not our goal to make you look like someone you’re not. If you want a natural look, we have just the lashes to enhance that. Something more dramatic, we have the perfect pair for you too! Worried about false lashes with contact lenses, don’t be. The glue we use is safe for your eyes and I recently found a fantastic latex free formula that can be used on anyone. Remember, this isn’t just any other day. You want to look like you but just a little more special? False lashes are the answer.
