[[ Hello, huge gap and tiny, thin layer of lashes...]]
Look at the state of that. Yes, I'm back into the habit of pulling my eyelashes out. It's a little 'twitch' I've had since primary school which always reappears when I'm stressed. I used to pull out my eyebrows and chunks from the back of my head when I was younger, too, but luckily that passed as I grew up. It has been suggested that I suffer from trichotillomania, but I don't think I do...I can't really explain it. It's never really bothered me and it's become something I know I will compulsively do when I'm under pressure - so when it happens it's no real surprise or concern.
[[ The most natural looking lashes in my collection - sorry, I don't know the make!]]
Mascara looks a bit daft on me at the minute. It looks like I've got about three randomly placed insect legs on each eye so I decided today that I would try some fake eyelashes instead. Nothing dramatic, nothing huge...just whispy and natural looking. The result?
[[ Oh falsies, how I love thee ]]
Well, I don't look like I've been yanking at my eyelashes, do I? Plus, because I know they're not 'mine' or actually a part of me I'm not tempted to pull at them. Winner!
[[ Happy happy happy! Believe it or not ahaha ]]
Luckily, I always know the causes when I'm stressed and stop pulling my eyelashes out shortly after the cause is dealt with. This time around it's down to preparing for uni interviews and the future in general. However, once the interviews are over it will be time to party, relax, have fun and lashes (real and otherwise) will be rock 'n' roll once more :D
