Along with a great complexion, long lashes are top of most brides’ wish lists when it comes to make-up.
Recently there’s been an explosion in the mascara market so you really can achieve length and curves without any fuss. We rate Benefit’s BAD gal and MAC’s False Lashes Mascara for amazing results, visibly making eyelashes longer.

To further increase the wow factor, invest in an eyelash curler. We couldn’t do without Shu Uemura’s eyelash curler, the secret weapon of many celebrity make-up artists who use it for 20 seconds on each set of upper lashes before applying one coat of mascara, allowing to dry, then applying again. Place a piece of tissue below lower lashes before coating them once.
If you still feel you want more of a flutter, you might want to consider false eyelashes or eyelash extensions. If you’re buying a full set make sure you have a few practice trials putting them on before the big day, preferably with a friend. Eyelash extensions require professional application to ensure the best result but with a little bit of maintenance they can last up to 12 weeks!
By blending the lash extensions with your natural lashes your eyelashes will look instantly fuller and more visible.
