Don’t poke your eye out!!
No (knock on wood!), I haven’t, but I’ve come dangerously close a few times…
The worst time by far was a couple years ago. I was applying false lashes using a pair of very sharp, pointy tweezers to place them on top of my natural lashes.
I don’t know what happened, but I misjudged the distance between the tweezers and my eyeball, and it was like one of those scary scenes from a movie where you see the shiny drill or the alien probe coming at the person’s eye in slow motion, gah!
I blinked my eye shut right in the nick of time.
Needless to say, I never did that again. Now I just use my fingers or this really handy tool I found at Sephora called the Bulls Eye Lash Applicator. It’s plastic and slightly rounded, so I can place my false lashes without the whole poking-my-eye-out thing. It’s also only $12. I use it all the time. If you wear false lashes often, I highly recommend it!
Which leads me to ask, have you ever poked your eye with a makeup brush or liner (or with any makeup accoutrement)?
