Houston, We Have An Eyelash Situation

As you all know, PeaceBang thinks that the world needs a li'l bit of glamour, and believes that even clergypeople can partake in that. A red lipstick, a pair of flowing velvet trousers on an elegant lady reverend, a distinguished, well-manscaped beard on elder gentlman pastors... you know what I mean.

As PeaceBang is fond of saying, she was in the theatre long before she was in the church, and she retains an old fondness for false eyelashes -- but never for church events. She procured a lovely pair of eyelashes from the Shu Uemura boutique in downtown Boston after a particularly odious professional engagement, and she likes to wear them to dinner parties and things of that nature. They are not potluck-friendly,

For those who would never dream of wearing false eyelashes, there are little eyelashes pieces one can easily add to the outer edges of the eye to open the eye, make them more visible from a distance (not a bad idea if you're preaching at a big conference).

I do believe that our young friend Brandy in the photo is wearing a few individual falsies there, and PeaceBang is sorry to have to say that this is Not Going Well. Individual false lashes should look very natural, not as though a winged creature has just splatted onto one's eyelid in an unfortunate accident.

If you have very short eyelashes and would like to see what an easy and dramatic difference falsies can make, darlings, just call me. Don't call Brandy. She's being charged with vehicular manslaughter anyway and won't be able to get back to you. I, on the other hand, would be happy to help.
