    Default Trimming your eyelashes?

    Is it okay to trim your eyelashes? A few of mine are extra long and I can see them, they get in the way of my vision and sometimes are really annoying...
    Was just wondering.

    No! I mean-there is no actual reason I guess-apart from having scissors that close to your eye BUT just use a warmed under hot water eyelash curler & get the up and out of your way. This trim idea is a bit extreme!!

    Why? Does is damage them? I've done it before I was just wondering... I'm a guy, I don't want to curl my eyelashes! That's girls stuff! Besides it's only really one of two on each eye...
    Don't worry, I am very careful with the scissors.

    I'd either curl them or go get someone else to trim them for you at a salon.

    that's happened to me. it's not that they're too long but every once in a while i get a lash that grows downward and either gets in my eye or is right in my field of vision and annoys the hell out of me. i pluck them. (plucking upwards, i hear that helps them grow back in the right direction). seems safer than having pointy scissors that close to your eye.

    it's not too bad. your eyes just water a little but it doesn't really hurt.

    OH MY LORD! Do not pluck your eyelashes! For petes sake-do this:
    hold hot bathcloth over eyes few seconds. With one finger pointed towards the other side of your head press upward on eyelashes
    firmly for a few seconds, I just tried this to make sure-it works fine and is not so drastic! Point to consider: guys with long eyelashes are hot.

    I'm trimming mine once in a while. They're extremely long and curly and rub against my eyelids, it's very unpleasant.

    it only happens once in a blue moon. i have a lot of lashes, very long and curly, and every once in a while one will grow downwards and literally stab my eye. i tried the waschloth thing, i tried getting it to stay up with mascara, etc... nothing else works sometimes. so i pluck it upwards and every time it grows back in the right place.
    but i would never trim eyelashes just because they are long. the longer the better! and i agree, guys with long lashes are hot!

    I trim my lashes cuz I have longer lashes on my right eye than the left. And I also have more on the left so I also pluck the strays. I just want both sides to be uniform and symetrical.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I have one black eyelash that comes out of the inner corner of my eye, and I pluck that out whenever it appears, and like you I sometimes get one that is growing the wrong way and that has to go too. Can't see a problem as long as you are careful.

    Why would you trim them? STOP! Most of us don't have them to trim! I have to get fakes if I wanna look extra sexy. I agree with everyone who says to curl them.

    Trimming is generally better than tweezing for eyelashes.
