If you're looking to attract a man with your fluttery false eyelashes and your faux, flowing mane, it's time to take a different approach. We've uncovered the truth and discovered the things that women do that make men turn the other way. Generally, men love to see women in their natural state, so ditch the dramatic routine and go au naturel for once. Try using single false eyelashes and duo glue for a more subtle effect and make sure your mascara is less than 6 months old.
As someone who overanalyzes just about everything else about women, I only notice lashes when they're covered in mascara. The findings don't support the view that increasing eyelash length will always increase the attractiveness of female faces. Women have the right to be rude, to have hair, to be slow, to wear makeup, not to wear makeup, to wear false eyelashes, to smell good or bad and to be human beings. For female faces, long lashes are certainly more attractive than very short lashes (being the least attractive), but they are also somewhat more attractive than very long eyelashes.
Personally, I believe that the boldness of eyelashes is something that judges beauty. Never in my life would I reject someone simply because their eyelashes don't meet society's “expectations”. A previous study suggests that the main function of the eyelashes is related to the tear duct system, which “provides a thin layer composed of mucus, oil and water to lubricate the eyelid, moisturize the cornea and eliminate particles deposited in the eye. I have eyelash extensions (natural looking ones that don't last long) because then I literally get up and leave the house and it still feels like I've worked a little hard.
So maybe the link between eyelash length and facial attractiveness isn't just due to biological factors. A one-way ANOVA test was performed, which showed that the most attractive faces had eyelashes with proportions of 0.16 and 0.20. A unidirectional analysis of variance (ANOVA) was calculated and showed that the proportions between the length of the eyelashes and the width of the eyes of 0.20, 0.24, 0.30 and 0.36 were considered the most attractive. Just because you have false eyelashes doesn't mean you're totally fake, sometimes it just makes life easier. What seems special about this length of eyelashes is that it “reduces by a factor of two both the deposition of particles in the air and the evaporation of the tear film”.
