Should the Mothers of the Bride and Groom Wear Fake Eyelashes on the Wedding Day?
The answer might surprise you!
As far as wedding-day beauty goes, the fears and anxieties associated with getting the look right aren't reserved for the bride alone. The mothers of the bride and groom often worry about how they'll look in photos and therefore struggle to come up with a makeup style that feels special enough for such an important day, but still timeless. The number one question makeup artists always hear from these women is, "Should I wear fake eyelashes?" The answer? Almost always yes, at least if you feel comfortable with them. Here, three reasons why the moms should consider wearing fake eyelashes on their son or daughter's big day.
They don't have to look fake.
If you associate fake eyelashes with the long, spidery options of your youth, it's time to get reacquainted with the beauty must-have. Since there are countless different options on the market-with lashes now available in every shape, size, and color-it's easier than ever to find something that looks really natural. If you want to fill out your lash line but still look understated, try the Ardell Natural Lashes in #110 or the Eylure Lengthening Lashes in #115. Both of these options offer barely-there volume and length, and most guests will have no idea you're even wearing fake eyelashes.
Individual lashes will give you the perfect amount of volume.
If you're still on the fence about wearing a full set of fake eyelashes, ask your makeup artist cut them down for a more natural look, or else see if they can apply individual lashes. Although they take a little more time, individual lashes can be carefully placed so that they fill out your natural ones and give you a really subtle boost. Ask for them to be applied just at the outer edge of the lash line, which will give you the perfect amount of eye-opening volume.
They'll make your eyes look brighter.
As we age, eyes tend to close. Whether it is a hooded lid or a natural loss of lashes due to age, it's harder to make your eyes look open and bright. But with carefully applied fake eyelashes, you'll be giving your eye makeup a little boost, and your eyes will look brighter and more youthful in person and in photographs.
