Thanks to the unavoidable bodily function coming at the wost possible time, a whole chunk of her lashes were torn out by the metal device.
“I really thought i ripped my eyelid in half,” she added in the comments, sharing a photo of the offending eyelash curlers and a better view of the damage (see her snaps in the gallery below).
But every cloud...
Within a day of the images being posted on Tuesday 19 July, more than 2,000 people shared their condolences and reassuring words.
“As a dude, what am I even supposed to be seeing here?,” one user wrote, before adding “I think women overestimate how much we notice them [eyelashes]”.
Others advised the best places to buy false eyelashes (Sephora fyi), and suggested using castor oil to encourage the re-growth.
