From mascara to false eyelashes plus every beauty enhancement in between, women will go to great lengths for full, fluttery lashes.
Eyelashes are not just aesthetically alluring, they also have an important physiological function: to protect the eye. Eyelashes keep out debris and dust and since they are highly sensitive, they serve as a warning when an object, like an insect, is too near the eye (which then closes reflexively).
If you were not naturally endowed with a lush lash line, sigh, there are a number of products and strategies to spruce up the sparseness. There are mascaras designed for every lash trial and tribulation: volumizing, lengthening and thickening; devices for curling; and options such as lash-growing serums, extensions, and falsies.
Curling your lashes before applying mascara is a real eye-opener. The iconic tool found in most makeup artists kits is by Shu Uemura. This little marvel of engineering provides an ergonomic pressure squeeze that lifts lashes to perfection.
