Did you know that when you flutter your eyelashes against your hand, it feels like real butterfly wings? Now you can wear butterfly-inspired fluttering eyelashes instead of running after the prettiest insects on Earth–and they’re Earth friendly!
Launched in 2010, Paperself merges fun with fashion by creating an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic falsies and chemical-laden mascaras, as each unique design is created using special paper and exquisite paper-cutting techniques. These wearable paper art eyelashes comes in two sizes: the regular size lashes can be worn in full for a dramatic look, whereas the individual smaller lashes can be worn on either the top or bottom corner of the eyes to create a subtle look.
Available in 20 designs so far, including the beautiful deer and butterfly duo, birds, roses, and peacock, the lashes are easier to apply than normal falsies, as they are lighter. The deer and butterfly design is part of The Wonderland Collection, one of the five themes in the series, where each design is assigned a symbolic meaning – this one means “Free, Beautiful, and Sensitive”. The lashes also come in chic eco-friendly paper-embossed boxes too.
Once your paper lashes are no longer lash-worthy, reuse the remains of the paper lashes by clipping off the design shaped to fit onto your fingernails, add one clear coat of a 4-free nail lacquer, et voilà – you have fabulous instant nail art.
After being seen on Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we think that paper eyelashes are going to become the hottest makeup trend of the season. So hot, I guess you could say it’s catching fire!
