This pretty young woman has ripped out the lashes above her left eye with a curler after an unfortunate slip of the hand as these pictures show.
The incident was shared on Facebook by netizen ‘Bobibo Non’, who hails from the central Thai capital Bangkok, where she wrote: “Unexpected events happen… a slip of the hand!”
According to local media, the young woman ripped out the lashes above her left eye while preparing them with a curler and accidentally jolting her hand.
It is unclear whether she was sitting down at the time and her elbow slipped off the dressing table or whether it was an involuntarily reaction while standing in front of a mirror.
The pretty Thai woman shared a photo of the curler with a neat row of eyelashes stuck to the top while posting a snap of her face.
The lashes appear to be coated in mascara which may have contributed to how easily they were ripped out.
In the photo, the woman’s left eye is seen completely bereft of lashes.
Eyelashes protect the eye from debris, dust and small particles and perform many of the same functions as whiskers on a cat.
Lashes are sensitive to touch and can work as a warning that an object is too close to the eyeball.
