You've got day-to-day beauty down pat, but your wedding is the perfect excuse to try some beauty treatments that have always felt just a bit too indulgent. These five are worth all the fuss:
We suggest skipping mascara-laden spider lashes and one-day-only falsies, and springing for eyelash extensions instead.
The process: Individual synthetic lashes are applied to your natural lashes with a waterproof bonding agent. The pain-free process takes about two hours; results can last for two to six weeks.
Limitations: Oil-based products and mascaras will be off-limits, but the good news is that you won't need mascara with extensions--a definite plus if you're looking to avoid smudges at the wedding, or poolside during the honeymoon.
Worth it? Yes; if your natural lashes are sparse and you don't want to deal with the hassle of gummy, hard-to-apply adhesive lashes (or risk having them fall off on the dance floor).
