False eyelashes were developed by movie director D.W. Griffith, who invented them in order to cause the eyes of actresses to be more prominent as he was filming the nineteen-sixteen epic movie “Intolerance”. To create this effect, a wigmaker took human hair and wove it through a fine gauze material. This false eyelash was then attached to the actresses’ lash line. Ever since then, eyelashes have been a staple not just in Hollywood, but in traditional society also.
In the 1930’s and 40’s, in the time of black and white movies, actresses such as Betty Davis, Joan Crawford, and Marlene Dietrich wore false eyelashes to make their own eyelashes stand out. Around the nineteen sixties, the model Twiggy made false eyelashes part of the Mod appearance and immediately many housewives started using them. Although, this did not last very long and it was worn mainly by drag queens and showgirls.
False Eyelashes Today
Nowadays, there are a lot of unique choices when it comes to selecting false eyelashes that it is difficult to decide which ones to settle for. There are many varieties in assorted colors, thickness and lengths. The finest false eyelash for you is that which is nearest to your natural eyelash.
This means not getting false eyelashes that are too thick, or too dark. Dark brown eyelashes are the most advised for color. Nonetheless, dark eyelashes are also a great choice if you have dark colored skin. If you have blonde hair, it is best to go with lighter-colored fake eyelashes.
If you make a mistake and purchase false eyelashes that are either too long or too wide, there are steps to help you get them to the desired length or width.
If the eyelashes you selected are too long, you should trim them so that they are just slightly shorter. This demands a lot of caution since once you trim off you can’t restore while on the other hand you can trim more off later.
In the event that the fake eyelashes you picked are too wide, then you should hold up the eyelashes to your eye and guess how much to resize. Gently trim off a few hairs on one edge of the eyelashes, and then test it again. Continue this for as many times as it requires to get the required width. Eyelashes are usually too wide so it is not an absurd practice to trim them.
False eyelashes are readily available in most beauty shops or salons and come in different shapes and sizes. If you are looking to temporarily change your look and are not after a more permanent look like permanent eyelash extensions or semi permanent eyelash extension than false eyelashes are the ones for you.
