What a difference a set of falsies can make! When I say falsies , I am referring to false lashes!

They are a dream come true for those of us who are not blessed with long luscious lashes, and a way to turn up the volume for some of us who need more volume or curl. As a bridal makeup artist, I have seen brides and their bridal parties transform after falsies are applied.

I personally prefer the strip lashes opposed to the individuals, but offer both.

One of the most important parts of a good set of falsies , is ofcourse the application of them.

Not every client of mine has been able to withstand the eyelash application proccess , due to eye sensitivity, nerves , contacts or the idea of having a lash in their line of vision makes them feel uneasy. So this is not ideal for everyone. But worth a try!

This requires a steady hand on the makeup artist's part and  the right type of adhesive, something waterproof and a surgical type of adhesive that is safe and not painful when going to remove lashes. Last but not least. the ever so patient bride or client who can remain still and hold her eyelids in place for a good 10 min to let the lashes set properly..otherwise drum roll....  Because if not...
Lifting may occur or a shifting of the lashes to the wrong area , causing glue to stick in places on the eyelid  ect. The proccess of removing excess glue or resetting a lash can take more time and every makeup artist can agree that occassionaly you come across a lash that is truly a "lemon" and requires a replacement.

The impact lashes have in photographs is tremendous especially for those profile shots. Very glam and for aging women, takes 10 years off, a much more youthful look.
