There's a lot to consider when it comes to wedding beauty, but a bride's makeup and hair are usually seen as most important since they will be preserved forever in photos. When it comes to making sure your makeup stands out, most brides and their artists will focus on the eyes, particularly the eyelashes, which helps the entire beauty look pop. If you love the look of full, volumized lashes, know that you have multiple options to achieve them. Find the option that's right for you here.

Fake Eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are one of the easiest, most foolproof options for achieving volumized lashes. Choose the falsies that work best for your desired look: Individual lashes can be added to your lash line to create a fuller look without too much drama, while a full band of fake lashes are a better choice if you're after more intense eyes. There are tons of options within these two categories, so work with your makeup artist to find the fake eyelashes you like best during your trial.


Lash Serums

Another option is to start applying a lash-building serum in the months leading up to the wedding. Depending on the treatment you choose, you may notice thicker, longer lashes in just a few months. But this option can be pricey, as one treatment can run up to $100.


Eyelash Extension

If there's one trend ruling the beauty world right now, it's eyelash extensions, which are applied to your existing lashes by a professional. The beauty of this method is that you'll have statement-making eyes at all of your pre-wedding events without the assistance of a makeup artist or fake lashes. The downside is that the cost of eyelash extensions can add up as you generally need a monthly appointment to maintain the look—the lashes often become sparse in between visits.


Double or Triple Mascara

If you don't typically wear much makeup, you'll be surprised to see what just a few coats of a very good mascara will do for your eyes. Mascara options are endless, and volumizing mascara alone (especially on someone who doesn't wear it daily) will change your beauty look.
