   Eyelashes History

     False eyelashes were invented by movie director D.W. Griffith, who created false eyelashes in order to make the eyes of actresses stand out more while he was filming the nineteen-sixteen epic movie "Intolerance." To create this effect, a wigmaker took human hair and wove it through a fine gauze material. This creation was then gummed to the actresses lash line. Ever since then, eyelashes have been a staple not only in Hollywood, but in regular society as well. In the nineteen thirties and forties, during the time of black and white movies, actresses like Betty Davis, Joan Crawford, and Marlene Dietrich wore eyelashes to make their own eyelashes more prominent.

     During the nineteen sixties, the model Twiggy made false eyelashes part of the Mod look and soon many housewives were wearing them. Soon afterwards, the trend became less main stream and eyelashes were mainly worn by Las Vegas showgirls and drag queens.
