Why, when living in a culture that praises and prizes long eyelashes, do you feel the need to try this at all? Setting aside the occasional lash that grows towards the eye, I’ve never heard of anyone doing this, and Google results are all devoted to debunking the myth that cutting lashes makes them grow back longer/thicker.
I started wearing glasses about a year ago and discovered that my lashes (mostly my left eye, oddly) were rubbing the lenses and annoying me. I use a small nose-hair scissors to snip off the ends about every other month.
I am a guy with fairly long lashes. As noted, it is generally considered to be a good thing. I tried this experiment as a kid. Don’t do it! Eyelashes don’t trim well at all. They are meant to be presented at their natural length with a slight curl at the end. Trimming them looks retarded to be kind about it. You can’t shape them to look natural at all. It will just look like you enlisted your eyeballs in the military.
Why in the name of all that is holy do dudes ALWAYS have the type of eyelashes that some women would commit murder for? Every single boyfriend I’ve ever had has had better eyelashes than me. It’s just not fair!
Yeah, I’m going to go with “don’t do it, it’ll look stupid” crowd. I also may or may not have to pout in a corner.
It’s bad enough, guys are fucking up their eyebrows (I love heavy brows, even mono’s) . . . and body hair. Now they’re performing a sacrilege of cutting their lashes? Are we to become a totally hairless species?
