Bridal Must Have for 2011 and Beyond...

Over the last few years, the emphasis for bridal make up has shifted its focus to…eyelashes!  Whether they be your own, or enhanced, this is your moment to shine like the movie stars on the red carpet at your wedding!  There are many ways to achieve the full luxurious lash, so let’s take a look at your options, bride to be!

False Lashes
If you opt for a false lash you have a couple of different options.  For example, if you want a more heightened natural look, you may opt for individual lash application.  This is where your make up artist will attach small clumps of lashes to the baseline of your own eyelash to fill in where nature didn’t.
A demi-lash is a strip lash, which is half the length of the lash line, and meant to be applied to the outer half of the eye to create a more cat- like effect.  Used on runway models and rock stars, this has a more edgy feeling and is perfect for the bride that wants a more stylized appearance.

False eyelashes that will run the entire length of the lash line for a heavy lidded movie star look are called strip lashes.  This would be for the bride that wants to have an “old Hollywood” look.  Easy on and easy off, this look can’t be beat for fluttery and playful eyes.

Each of these types of applications will give you, temporarily for that day, a glamorous, modern bridal look, while enhancing the shape and depth of your eyes in all your wedding photo’s!

Permanent Lashes
Permanent lashes are attached individually to mimic your natural lashes with a special adhesive that allows you to wear them for long periods of time even in the shower etc.  These are great for the bride that wants her glam look to last all the way through the honeymoon and beyond.  I would suggest booking your appointment with a permanent lash specialist like Rebecca at Beauty at least a week or so before your bridal party’s hair and make up appointments.  They look so natural, even your best friends may not know your secret!

Growing your own lashes with a product like Latisse or others on the market may require a prescription from a doctor, so ask about the possibility of side effects.  They would also require you to start using the product daily at least 6 months prior to your wedding.    The downside here is length of time to get the result you want, and then if you like it, continual use of the product to maintain length and coloration of lashes.  The upside is that they are truly your own lashes, and won’t diminish until you discontinue use of the product.

With all the available choices for this hot trend, call us at Beauty today to see which of these services we can provide for you,  so you can have a red hot, red carpet look of your own, on your big day!
