I’ve worn my fair share of fake eyelashes in my day, but the new paper eyelashes by Paperself are a whole new genre of eye enhancement.
Inspired by the Chinese art of paper-cutting, these intricate beauties will definitely get you some attention. Very Lady Gaga, no?
My two favorites have to be the “Deer and Butterfly” and “Peacock” (above). I kind of love how the antlers mimic real lashes, with a touch of whimsy.
These one-of-a-kind faux lashes come in two sizes; the bigger one goes for a dramatic lash line takeover, while the smaller one, below, lets you get creative. Keep it classic(ish) with an outer corner application, or go bold with a full set on top and the smaller size on the bottom outer corner for über-drama.
Now, the Paperself site recommends using the little guys to “accentuate the corners of your eyes…for a subtle daytime look.” I would never choose subtlety as a descriptor here. Unless your day job is under the big top, let’s stick to costume parties.

I’ve got to ask, is this a trend with staying power, or just too bizarre for non-Fame Monsters?
