When the novelty of mascara wore off aged 13, we looked to find alternatives. Solutions came in the form of lash gems, neon wing-tips and even feather falsies.
Unfortunately, now that it’s no longer 1999 and we can’t deem diamante decoration acceptable, we’re having to find new ways to accessorize. Whilst mascara seems to have gone full circle – we went from barely there, to overdone, and back to the simple slick coat, false lashes are going back to basics too. Well, basic in the terms of maintaining a conventional black, and originating from more a basic time at any rate. Yes, the latest lashes to hit the scene have taken inspiration from Ancient Chinese paper cutting. Bringing back the art of intricately cut paper crafts, Paperself offer a variety of delicate and decorative lashes, all made from paper. Yes, paper.
