Ladies have the advantage of tweaking the eyelashes to have different looks that they might desire.

At other times one might pull out the eyelashes by accident most likely when applying makeup or removing it from the eyelashes. They are plenty of makeup that is applied to the eyelashes like mascara which sometimes cakes the eyelashes and makes it difficult to remove at night resulting in some lashes being pulled out, make sure that you use reputable brands of mascara which will have less effects of caking the eyelashes.
