Flirtation through eyelashes

There is a maneuver that I absolutely love in romance novels. “She looked up at him through her eyelashes.” It tends to portray a coyness, flirtation, or a covert observation. It’s a lovely thing to read in novels, but it’s a hell of a feat to accomplish in reality. At least for me.

First of all I can’t see my eyelashes because they are so short and curl upwards. When I do try to look through them I look like I’m scowling and trying to look up into my brain. Not a pretty sight.

So be warned before you try to look through your eyelashes at someone. Unless you are wearing eye lash extensions, loads of lengthening mascara, or have naturally long eyelashes, I would not recommend this coy move. If you want laughter to ensue, then please be my guest.

Have you ever tried to look at someone through your eyelashes?

  5. LOL. It works if you're lying back, or have your eyelids half-closed as if you're drifting off to sleep. :)
