In addition to the impact it generates on your appearance, false eyelashes actually benefit your natural eyelashes. Unlike mascara, which can cause eyelashes to become brittle and weak, false eyelashes act as an alternative to reduce the impact on natural eyelashes, allowing them to grow thicker and healthier. Sometimes I see subtle but expensive eyelash extensions, small extensions individually glued to the top or below the lash line. But usually, the women I notice wear eyelashes in very obvious strips, glued with adhesive to the top of their natural lash line.
In essence, this obsession with longer eyelashes stems from the idea that eyelashes get shorter with age. In ancient Rome, the author Pliny the Elder helped make long eyelashes even more enviable when he posited that they were related to being chaste. As a result, women strived to have the longest eyelashes possible. Women have been wearing false eyelashes (extensions?) for special occasions for years, but now I see them everywhere.
I work from home and when I don't publish, I make transactions. CNBC works around the clock and right now I have the equivalent of an MBA. Last week I noticed that younger news anchors wear false eyelashes, even at 6 in the morning I feel like I missed the memo. Although Twiggy's most iconic images showed her with eyelashes painted directly on her face, she also wore a lot of false eyelashes.
In fact, a new type of false eyelashes has recently appeared on the market to meet the growing consumer demand for false eyelashes, magnetic false eyelashes that are attached to the eyelid with magnetic bands instead of glue. I prefer a natural, clean approach to beauty and I think false eyelashes look pretty fake most of the time. Everyone can flaunt false eyelashes, from simple strips of false eyelashes purchased at the pharmacy to voluminous eyelash extensions applied by an eyelash technician. False eyelashes are so popular because long, voluminous and full eyelashes are a symbol of femininity and help to open and accentuate the eye.
