Hi Brides & Brides to Be…. I know it is all the rage to have false eyelashes applied for your wedding. They’re long, they’re thick, they’re gorgeous and they’re also really heavy on your lids! It took me an inordinate amount of time to figure out why SO MANY of my brides were excessive blinkers this year. I’m chucking out over half my photos from some wedding simply because the bride either has her eyes closed or looks very, very sleepy. Turns out, in each of those cases, the brides are wearing fake eyelashes which are literally weighing their eye lids down and making them blink much more frequently. So a word of caution to all you would be doe eyed ladies out there. Try to get used to wearing them well before your wedding (can you really build up eye lid muscles I wonder?) or try several more coats of mascara before you plunge right into the extra layer of lashes! You’ll have 100% more photos to choose from and that’s a pretty good reason to lose the lashes!
