On myself, I will almost always skip the false lashes. Only on the rarest of occasions will I apply the individual lashes, but I'm normally too impatient to do that on myself. Sometimes I'll even wear the half-lashes if I'm feeling dangerous enough. I don't like wearing full strip lashes because I wear contacts and they irritate my eyes too much.
And to be completely honest, I am floating on cloud nine when a bridal client tells me they want to skip the falsies for their wedding. I do a little Irish jig which then segways into the Beyonce "Single Ladies" dance because that saves me a ton of time (I only use individual false lashes on bridal clients because they look the most natural). But then I look at professional photos of brides with the falsies and I think to myself "Damn. Her lashes look good." I'm so torn!
So in the end, I believe there are pros and cons when it comes to false lashes. For me, the cons tend to outweigh the pros, but I know a lot of people who couldn't live without their falsies. What is your stance on false lashes?
