It’s been more than hundred years since the false eyelashes came in to the scene. With many ups and downs false eyelashes have gained popularity again today. There are many interesting facts that will shock and awe you!
False eyelashes were invented in 1916 by D.W Griffith, a movie director as he wanted the leading lady of his movie to have eyelashes long enough to brush her cheeks while she blinks!
Mink along with synthetic filament and silk is used to create false eyelashes. Once Madonna wore eyelashes made of mink and 0.75 carats of diamonds created by Shu Uemura worth $10,000! These days pretty much everything else goes form synthetic mink, to custom hair blend, to horse hair to paper lashes. Interesting right!
Red Fox Furred Lashes
Jennifer Lopez in 2001 sported a pair of false lashes made of red fox furs made by Shu Uemura at the Academy Awards that caused a quite stir! This made luxe lashes the talk of the town to such an extent that Shu Uemura opened a top notch counter with seasonal collection of lashes called Tokyo Lash Bar in 2004! Today due to increase in demand and consumer awareness, faux animal hair such as faux mink lashes are preferred over animal hair ones. Go crulty-free with synthetic blend or real human hair is what we recommend.
Craziness for false lashes died down during 30s and 40s but then came back in the 60s when an English supermodel Twiggy painted on her lower lashes and a full top lash set, her iconic look drove women wild for false lashes again!
Jessica Harrison, an artist once took dead flies’ legs and attached them onto eyes! And she named it ‘flylashes’. Sounds weird but true!
