Hey ThisThatBeauty Babes –
Your girl has been in heavy deliberation over whether or not to broach a particular subject.
Yea yea, everyone loves my quick witted and light hearted beauty talk but will you stand with me when the ish gets real? Will y’all continue to ride with Ms ThisThatBeauty even when I have to dish out beauty tough love? When the fit hits the shan, will you still read my blog?
Well here goes...
For today’s installment of ThisThatBeauty: Beauty Observations, we must deal with the topic of false eye lashes in everyday life…*SMDH*
OK, how do I say this? How can I put this delicately? (Dear Lord, somebody’s feelings are gonna get hurt, I can just feel it.)
*Felicia, breathe. Wooo saaah!!!*
OK. I love false eye lashes as much as the next diva. When its time to gear up for major events like Fashion Week…
Or a crazy night out with the girls, dramatic lashes are practically a pre–req!
And the longer and more dramatic the betta! Everyone needs to see my fierceness from a mile away.
But lets say (true story) I’m heading to visit Lipstick Queen headquarters in Chinatown and need to take the subway. Uncertain of which train to take, I ask the MTA token booth attendant for guidance. WHY ARE HER EYE LASHES GREETING ME from through the plexiglass? Is this really necessary?…in broad daylight on a Wednesday???
Or lets say I’m in Target (true story) buying cleaning products, hangers, and sneaking in a cute lil Mossimo boyfriend tee for $5…should my check out girl’s eye lashes reach the hell out and tickle my chin?
The answer to both questions/scenarios is HELL to the NO!
LADIES – Why are we wearing extreme length lashes in normal everyday settings like the MTA token booth and the Target check out on route 22 in Union, New Jersey? Why?
I simply cannot take it. Can you not hear your mommas in the background nagging:
“Baby, there’s a time and a place for everything”
I’m sorry but the MTA token booth is not the appropriate place for extreme eye lashes. That is never OK. PERIOD!
Do I stand alone on this topic? How do you guys feel about extreme lashes outside of special occasions? Please leave a comment. I need some perspective.
And BTW, lace front wearers who ARE NOT on stage performers or A-list celebs – I’m coming for that a$$ next. This I promise!!!
PS: My opinion excludes those with medical conditions that leave the eye lashes bald. And honestly, I doubt these people are wearing over the top extreme lashes. They’re probably wearing very tasteful natural length extensions.
