my glue, unfortunately, was in my SIL's room and i couldn't wear them for the TTD the next morning, so i don't know yet how they would hold up in water, but they were absolutely fantastic and i think they were the perfect choice!
i kind of want to wear them every day now...
i don't have my pictures from the photographer yet, but here's one that kind of shows the lashes.
(note that the suuuper long part isn't the lashes, but a crease in the fabric behind me or my hair or something. they weren't insanely long!)

Another tip is to use the pointed end of the wooden stick to apply more glue to the corner of applied lashes if they aren't sticking well (the inside corner never sticks well for me). You can carefully add more glue to the underside of the end sticking up without getting it everywhere.
If you get some black eyeshadow (looks better if matte) you should use that along the lash line after applying to cover any glue and small gaps you may have between your real lash line and fake lash line (it happens occassionally but can't even tell if you color in the gap). It just looks like eyeliner if applied in a thin line.
Eyelash extensions - I was told by a company here that you should not swim in them (pool or ocean) or where mascara with them or they will start falling out pretty quickly. You also have to be very careful about the cleanser you use on your face. I was in Mexico for a week before the wedding so this was not an option for me.

if applying with glue yourself at home kind, just 1) put contacts on first & don't rub & 2) don't get glue on the eye/contact these held up okay during some swimming but felt loose after a shower. (this was the strip kind)
with semi-permanent, be careful to not bend, tug or pull on the extensions when putting contacts in/taking out, other than that, nothing out of the ordinary. had them on a cruisie last year, snorkelled (carefully putting on mask), swam, sauna, steam room. they held up quite well. i think the sealant from the lash salon i purchased to put on them everyday helped. At first a couple lashes seemed to have shifted after swimming but i was told if that happened to just put them back and let it reset. was totally fine after.
hope that helps =)

My job as a performer entails full stage make up every day, great lashes that withstand the test of time (I often wear the same pair for about 3 weeks before they get destroyed!) are Ardell lashes, I wear 105's, but they have many different lengths, thickness and styles. My natural lashes are pretty long so these are about the same length as my naturals, but they add a nice amount of thickness, and add that extra 'pop' to my eyes! They are only about $5 i think, and you can get them at Walmart, CVS, Sallys, Target... basically everywhere! Even if you decide to go with more expensive lashes and just want to practise applying and wearing lashes, these are cheap enough to do that without having to feel the pull on your purse strings!
A tip for everyone if you are applying fake lashes yourself - glue along the edge and apply so the lashes are more ''upwards'' to give you that wide eye look!
And I use DUO glue from MAC to apply them. One tube lasts me about a year! It's great for people with sensitive skin and eyes as its hypoallergenic and very light. Easy to take off with a bit of oily eye make up remover.
