LED light eyelashes

Strange yet very unique! That’s how I would describe LED eyelashes.

What exactly are LED eyelashes?

I asked myself that same question when I was forwarded the idea to write a blog on it. LED ( light emitting diode) eyelashes are pretty much artificial lashes that light up! Their purpose is to emphasize the eyes and make them appear bigger. They’re equipped with a sensor that allows you to turn the lights on or off simply by tilting your head and were created by an artist, Soomi Park from Seoul.

Personally I wouldn’t mind wearing some flashy lashes for Halloween or some kind of crazy dress up event. Daily wear? I don’t think so. Don’t get me wrong the design and idea behind them is great, it just seems a little too drastic for my taste. It would be cool to try on a pair of these lashes, do your daily routine and check out the reactions from people around you. I also watched a video on them and they looked very cute on the model, though i’m unsure how safe it is having those lights flashing so close to your eyes.

I doubt an LED eyelash invasion will happen, but it’s always nice to be informed on different beauty inspired trends out there. Many women worldwide go to great extremes to correct flaws they see or emphasize beauty assets, so in reality who are we to judge what others perceive as beautification methods. Speak for yourself and post your response towards LED eyelashes!
