But while most people simply attach them to the top of your natural lashes, TikTok account Beauty trends shared a video earlier this month that left viewers stunned.

The viral clip shows the woman trimming her eyelashes with a nail clipper and then clamping the false lashes onto her own.

Talking to Tyla, eyelash expert Liarna Jessica Yearwood urges people not to try this at home.

Because if you don’t love your natural lashes, they serve a VERY important purpose.

She explains: “Your lashes protect your eyes [from] debris in the air. Without eyelashes, your eyes are at risk of serious infections or corneal abrasions.”

“Secondly, your lashes take about 90 days to grow. If you cut them, you’ll have to wait almost three months for them to grow back! Not a great look.”

“Trimping your lashes will strip away the natural tapered edges of your lashes, which will leave your lashes with sharp edges that, as they grow out, can irritate or damage your lashes. scratch your eyes.”

But you know where we draw the line? Slide our faces in the LUBE.

Social media star Rady went viral last September when she filmed a tutorial where she dabs her face in Durex’s Aloe Vera lube before applying her foundation.

When questioned by fans, the beauty vlogger confirmed that it brought dew-like skin.

“One of its key ingredients is propylene glycol,” she asserts

“It binds with water and pulls hydration to the outer layer of skin. It helps give skin a dewy look.”

However, chemist Bruce Green – who founded the skincare brand SOS Serum – warns this trend can actually cause breakouts or dry out your skin.

“It’s an interesting idea, and I can see why a silicone-based lubricant could smooth the application of color cosmetics,” he said.

“BUT because many lubricants are oil-based or water-based with high levels of glycerin, these formulations can clog pores, attract surface bacteria and atmospheric debris, which can lead to Acne.

“Many lubricants have a Melt Flow Index to be compatible with the skin – which is good – just not underneath your makeup.

“As you heat up, your soles and things can slide around.

“Formulas with a high silicone content can also reduce the skin’s absorption of moisture, leading to dryness and flaking.

After the trend exploded online, the expert said: “It’s never a good idea to apply baby oil and then go out in the sun. You’ll be doing great for your skin.

“This greatly increases the risk of burns as well as the risk of skin cancer.”

“Melanoma skin cancer – less common but even more deadly than other types of skin cancer – is related to how often and how badly you get melasma.

“Non-melanoma skin cancers are more closely related to your lifetime sun exposure.

“Applying baby oil increases the amount of contact with your skin equally.”

“Even tanning causes your skin to age and can increase your risk of skin cancer,” warns Dr. Sarah.

The Tiktok tanning hack has raked in hundreds of thousands of views, and commenters hastened to warn Tiktok users how dangerous the technique can be.

“Worst thing I have ever done using baby oil once! Ruined my skin and it’s never been the same since. Please don’t do this,” one viewer begged.

Another wrote: “This is what we did in the 80s. Don’t do it. I’m paying for it right now. “
