Designer Creates Natural Fake Eyelashes Using Foliage Found in a Local Forest
As part of her Design course at London's Kingston University, UK-based designer Mary Graham created a series of fake eyelashes using only organic materials found in a local forest. Everything she used was created by nature. Eggs and snow formed the glue to attach the eyelashes to the eyelid. Scavenged foliage like pine needles, grass and evergreen tree leaves, was used to create the lashes. Speaking about the project Graham says: "The topical debate as to what constitutes as natural beauty caught my attention. Could cosmetics ever be made convincingly enough to be sold on the market as a truly natural product? My aim was to give myself tough restrictions in an attempt to craft a truly natural product."
