  • No. Fake lashes have nothing to do with your real lashes.

  • Let her do it. As long as her skin isn't sensitive to the glue. The false lashes actually attach to the eye lid, not her lashes.

  • It won't ruin her real lashes. Whether she is allowed is up to you. I don't see why she shouldn't be, but you're the mom.

  • Yes. It can cause damage to her lashes. Although the glue is applied to the lid, it can run (especially in inexperienced hands) and end up pulling lashes in the process of taking them off. I don't see the need for a 10 yo to have fake lashes for any occasion, but that's up to you.

  • Its your decision whether she gets the lashes and as was already mentioned, as long as she doesn't have a reaction to the glue then she should be fine.

  • It wont ruin her lashes unless you are talking about Lash Extensions. Extensions and Falsies are different. Extensions you go to a salon, falsies you use glue and they come right off.

  • No it won't ruin her lashes. They don't touch her lashes.
    Sounds like Mom needs to be a little more into fashion so she knows what daughters are asking for!

  • I wouldn't have a problem with that at all. After all it's only for dressing up :)
