After so much planning, the big day has finally arrived. And we have yet to meet a bride (or a groom) that has not turned into a pile of nerves on their wedding day.

On his wedding day, a groom friend of ours was running a fever and sweating so profusely, he had to change his shirt 5 times through the ceremony and reception!

You are probably wondering how on earth you can be stress-free on your wedding day… you really can’t. But with the help and collaboration of BWedding and this fab styled shoot, we’ll share a few ways to help you relax the morning of your wedding.

How to Destress Before your Wedding

Here are a few ideas to help you calm your nerves before your wedding.

Get some personal space. You have been surrounded with people up until now — and you will be surrounded by even more people later. So, enjoy some alone time to destress and become present to the beauty and uniqueness of this day.

Mentally chant this mantra (or do it out loud – totally your choice): “The Universe is in control, the Universe loves me, and only good and fun things will happen today”

Want an instant trick to destress? Grab a sachet of lavender or even an apple. Smell it. It’s ah-mah-zing, isn’t it?

Call room service and eat a snack — but, mindfully! Savor every bite of these tempting pastries. Do you prefer some mood food to help you relax even more? Go for dark chocolate,

If you are anything like me, you will want a healthy and delicious breakfast. A balance of proteins, carbs and fats is a fab way to start the day. Err on the side of more protein — think eggs Benedict or scrambled or a yummy cheese omelette with heirloom tomato slices over ricotta and toast. Plus, a nutrient-rich diet is best for beating stress.

4. Most couples have already been intimate before getting married and many live together. They could be a bit disillusioned with the wedding night. Don’t despair! Choose something you’ve never tried before – tender-sweet lovemaking under a starry sky, making a long-time fantasy come true – or withhold from being intimate for the whole week before the wedding. You want this night to be scintillating!

Have you tried to wear falsies and failed? We reveal the secret to pick the best false eyelashes for your eye shape! Read on!

Stunning fake eyelashes. Bold and thick.

Stunning fake eyelashes. Bold and thick.

Wearing false eyelashes is one of the fastest and simplest ways to make your eyes stand out. But, have you tried to flaunt long false eyelashes and failed? You may not have picked the perfect falsies for your eye shape. Don’t let these small details ruin your perfect makeup!

False eyelashes can make your eyes look sunken, smaller or even bigger. You should consider which ones are a good fit for you, and it all depends on the shape of your eye. Check out these tips and pick your best pair of false eyelashes!



But first, a few tips for Fake Eyelashes

For a natural look, enhance your lashes by adding a subtle length and volume. This is best for beginners and those brides who do not want people to notice their falsies.

And:

  • If this is your first time wearing falsies, don’t go for a dramatic look
  • Always trim your false eyelashes before applying them.
  • Don’t go overboard with the glue or pick magnetic eyelashes instead.
  • Don’t ever sleep with you false eyelashes on.
  • For lash extensions, your stylist should take into consideration the shape of both your face and eyes. And suit the styling of the lash extensions to how you would like your eyes to look.
All eyes can benefit from false eyelashes, be it with a cat eye or a more dramatic yet wispy vibe.

False Eyelashes on Fleek for Small Eyes

For small eyes, false eyelashes are highly recommended. For a cute vibe go for longer lashes on the center of the eyes, it will make your eyes look bigger, more round and open. Avoid them if you already have round eyes. You should also choose falsies that combine long and short lashes, to get a more open look.

Picking Falsies for Almond Eyes

It’s super easy to identify almond shaped eyes. They look like two perfect almonds! Any look will look good with this eye. With lots of lid space, these eyes will look super fab with a dramatic eye. The glam look is perfect for those who want high volume, length and curl in their lashes. Volume, volume and more volume!

How to Choose False Eyelashes for Close-Set Eyes

If you have been super concerned with your close set eyes and want to make them pop, falsies are a must. Choose false eyelashes with more volume on the outer corner. This will give the impression of wider set eyes. For this sultry and exotic look, pick fake eyelashes with longer outer corners. They will emphasize the width of the eyes. Nifty little secret, right?

Lashes for Wide Set Eyes that are Fire

On the opposite side of the spectrum, we have eyes that are set far apart from each other. Call attention away from the outer corners, so avoid angled lashes. Choose false eyelashes with the same length from the middle to the outer corner. Work the eyeliner extending it towards the bridge of your nose.

Picking the Most Fab Eyelashes for Deep Set Eyes

How do you know if your eyes are deep set? Place your index finger upwards over your eye. If you cannot touch it, then you have amazing deep set eyes. The doll look, also recommended for round eyes, and with long and very wispy lashes are a great choice. Any false eyelashes that are very long and very voluminous will give the illusion of less depth. False eyelashes that are very long in the middle will help draw the eye forward as well.

Perfect Fake Lashes for Prominent Eyes

Prominent eyes are expressive, so the natural look is the most fitting both for day or night. For an instant smoldering vibe, add longer lashes at the outer end to create a cat eye. Or try long and curly lashes in the middle for a flirty look. It is best to opt for falsies with separate lashes and not much volume so they don’t overwhelm your eyes.

False lashes are the quickest, easiest way to open up your eyes and make them appear infinitely larger.

False Eyelashes for Hooded Eyes (or Heavy Lided)

The secret with hooded eyes is to cover the eyelid. Opt for curlier lashes, lashes that are longer in the outer corner on in the middle. A nice cat eye with long and curled lashes will look divine. Avoid straight lashes at all costs. Go thin with your eyeliner or pick a sparkly one to brighten the look.

A great tip? Apply individual false eyelashes to the outer part of your lash line! Use a tweezer to apply individual false eyelashes for extra precision.

Get Flirty Looks for Round Eyes!

If you have round eyes, avoid voluminous false eyelashes as they round up the eye even more. It is best to opt for long, thin and separate falsies. Or some with a short-long pattern, that gives a bit of a doll-like effect that opens up the eye. You may also choose winged and wispy lashes that go along the lash line well to help create a cat eye shape.

Best False Eyelashes for Monolids

Monolids lack that natural double crease plus the lids cover most of the eyelashes making them look shorter.
Longer lashes definitely help draw attention to your eyes. So, a less dense pair of fake and curly eyelashes can add more volume and create a believable, lush look. Pick some with natural length bur lots or curl, preferably elongated ones for a cat eye effect. Go ahead and flaunt your peepers!
