Eyelashes! Thick, thin, long, short, black, brown, feathered, curled, bedazzled beautiful eyelashes! No matter how you wear them and if you were born with them or glue them on every morning (a lady never tells ;) ), it's no surprise that women have been obsessed with making their eyelashes stand out since the Egyptian Empire!
This week, I have posted two brand new articles for your reading enjoyment. The first is an article giving you a brief history of where our obsession with eye lash cosmetics came from (it's not boring, I promise!). The second is a follow up to that article breaking down the most common tools and products used to enhance your peepers. You can find both articles here:
