Dashing Lashes

Allow me to begin to express my utter bewilderment and wonder of these gorgeous false eyelashes. When I see these pictures, they are so much more than that. They're a statement, a persona (your gateway to your alter-ego). It's kind of hard to tell from the picture, but that isn't make up below here eyes, its the light shining through the plastic eyelashes and casting an orange glow on her cheeks. It looks like magic.
The make-up artist who designs these, Kakuyasi Uchiide, was interviewed by PingMag, and both parties had interesting statements to make about this new fad.

Such a small accessory like feather lashes seem to give a woman’s face a kind of creature-like aura - transform her into a bird…

Of course! The feather lashes would make you change dramatically. Our lash collection can be applied to any situation - from natural to dramatic.

Interesting what that might also imply about our perception of beauty - are we drawn to an image of beauty that resembles us of archaic nature, possibly?

I like more the idea that cosmetics or make-up is an art of daily life. And there are many things we get impressed of in everyday life - everything surrounding me can be inspiration.
