Ok, when Tammy Faye Bakker Messner was still with us, she was the butt of many a joke by the press and comedians. Her over-the-top eye make-up and ridiculous lashes made for lots of late night laughs.
So why is it then, that Kim Kardashian and other celebrities are rocking the same look and no one says anything? The look? Spider lashes. I blame it on Latisse, hawked in commercials by Brooke Shields and Claire Dane.
More and more it appears celebrities are leaving the lush and full fake eyelashes behind and growing their own and then coating them to spiky points with mascara. But there’s nothing natural looking about them in my opinion. Eyelashes that touch your eyebrows seem out of proportion to me.
Kim reigns as the worst looking, but there are other celebrity offenders. They include Natalie Portman, Ashanti, and Ashlee Simpson Wentz. I will say that since Natalie Portman has become pregnant, her lashes have gotten shorter. That also leads me to think it’s Latisse at work and it’s been discontinued. I prefer her current and more natural look.
I’m hoping this is a passing fad, there are so few women who can pull it off and I don’t think that Kim is one of them. Are you a fan?
