Yes you read that right! There is an apparent, national lash day 🦋
Hey my little Brushaflies and welcome back to my blog, Brushafly Mua 🦋 and today’s blog post is in celebration of national lash day! Yay! So according to nationaldaycalendar.com https://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-lash-day/… National lash day happens annually in February, this year it is February 19th 2021 to bring people, makeup artists, makeup lovers, makeup enthusiasts, and makeup companies together to celebrate the false and natural eye lash! Ask any makeup artist or expert and they will tell you the eye lash is a staple in any makeup look, not only does it finish a makeup look, but it can enhance a makeup look. If like me you have blonde, short and stubby lashes then the whip of a mascara wand comes in super handy. My favourite mascara at the moment is the Revolution 5D lash mascara… Link to my video here – Brushafly Mua – Revolution 5D lash mascara review
But that is not the only mascara I enjoy using, I also live for:
- Revolution 5D lash mascara – Revolution beauty website
- Nars Climax extreme mascara – Nars Cosmetics website
- No 7 lash impact Ultra mascara – Boots No 7 website
- Fenty Beauty Full Frontal mascara – Boots website
But lashes are not only defined with mascara, oh no, many lovelies love to use false lashes to create awesome and beautiful eye looks. I am sad to say I am not one of those people, I can apply false lashes to other peoples eyes just fine, I was taught how to in my makeup artist courses, but applying them to myself can literally bring about a full on, adult strop and meltdown. I most of the time end up gluing my tweezers, my makeup brushes and even my fingers to my eyes… But lashes just ping off and don’t stick! So personally I am very much a mascara girl at heart. I love playing around with different mascara formulas, wands and colours and building them up to look either as natural or as false lash as I want.
But why do we even have lashes in the first place? What is their purpose in life?
Well lashes actually have an important job to do, not just to look pretty:
- Help to prevent eye moisture loss from evaporation
- Help to prevent dirt, grime and any nasties from entering our eyes and potentially damaging them
- Help to prevent eye infections
- Help to shade our eyes from some light
- They can also function somewhat like a cats whiskers because they are sensitive to the touch, and can warn us if something is near our eye, such as a fly or bug
And just like the hair on your head, lashes have a ‘hair life cycle’. The average person can loose as much as 20% of their lashes every few weeks. Lashes tend to grow in 60 – 90 day cycles where the lash grows, and then shed. Obviously not all at once, but usually around 1-5 lashes a day.
There is a superstition kind of thing that me and my family like to do when ever an eye lash falls out on someone’s or on our own cheeks and we catch it. You take the lash between your fingers, close your eyes and make a wish, then blow it into the world and wait for your wish to come true.
So to join in with National lash day why not take a picture of your made up lashes or even just your natural ones and upload it to social media with the hashtag – #nationallashday – the hashtag is from nationaldaycalendar.com
Ultimately let’s have fun with National lash day.
