Getting married in June - I'm doing my own make up but some years ago I had my make up done professionally and I really liked the fake eyelashes.
Are they possible to buy and put on yourself without looking like a drag queen/candidate for Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Any brands to recommend or avoid?

You've got to try the new 'Cherry Bloom' brush on fibre lashes, they are amazing! No need for glue and all that worry, you coat with the Mascara first and then just before it dries you brush over the fibre and then put another coat of the mascara on and voila, your eyelashes are extended. I have long lashes to begin with, but once these are on, I look like I have put on falsies without that OTT drag Queen look and you can control the thickness of the amount you put on.
When you want t wash it off you just use warm soap and water, so easy. Only downside, a little pricey, but well worth it, especially for day as special as your wedding day.

I use the Ardell lashes, style depending on what I want them for.
I find the one piece easier to apply than individual lashes and make sure you trim them to size so they're not sticking out the side of your eyes.
Not everyone does it this way, but I prefer to put mascara on, apply lashes, then another quick coat of mascara.

Get the ones with pre applied glue so it's less fiddly, tweezers are your friend and PRACTICE! I love fake eye lashes! I use revlon ones from Kmart-bout $10. Have you thought about eye lash extensions-not cheap but they are gorgeous. Last about 2 weeks, I would get them a day or two before the big day

I am addicted to false lashes, I have used the brush on ones and wasn't a fan. I grab whatever lashes I like the look of at priceline, and get my hairdresser to put them on. She charges $5 and it's well worth it coz it takes me about half an hour to do it myself! If you have a Napolean store near you they can also out them on for you.

I prefer doing a few individual lashes rather than a whole strip, just looks better on me. Buy some different sets and have a few practises.

I would definitely practice first! I'm not a big makeup wearer but I love false lashes. They take a bit of skill to get on- well above my pay grade
For such a special occasion I would consider professional make up unless you are super awesome at it- mainly because a makeup artist will use stuff that works well with photography. And even though I know you're having an intimate wedding, I'm sure you'll have photos at some point and an artist will take that into account. JMO of course

They take a bit of practice I started off with cheapies from the $2 shop and practiced with them. For a special occaision I now prefer the look of a half lash applied from the middle to the outer corner.I find they are also easier to apply. Check out the intructional vids on youtube too! All the best
