How Pop Culture Has Influenced Eyelashes

A simple definition of pop culture is modern popular culture, which is conveyed through mass media and is aimed in particular at young people. Pop Culture, also called mass culture or “pop culture,” is generally recognized by members of society as the practice, belief, or object that is predominant or predominant in society at a given time. It manifests itself in everything from fast food to music, fashion, movies, television, books, music and movies.

Slowly people are coming of age and developing a taste for pop culture, which is why fashion designers in New York have been influenced to incorporate more and more of it into their collections. Back in 2013, it seemed pop culture was invading the fashion industry, nurturing a whole new generation of young people, especially those in their early 20s.

Most of the 1980s as fashion was related to famous musicians and pop music; Madonna, for example, had a major influence on a particular group of women. Twiggy wore plenty of false lashes, with the most iconic image showing her with lashes painted directly onto her face. Nevertheless, fake eyelashes have been everywhere since the 1930s, and many women love false lashes. Vogue ads marketed  “confusing eyelash lengths” and “the most beautiful lashes in the world.”

Wig tape was used to keep the lashes on for the entire eight hours, and the trend of “magic lashes” continued into the 1990s, when Sarah Tanno created a top gold foil eyelash that sat on four false lashes.

In the 1970s, make-up was much more muted and natural, and until the 1980s, things like blush and dark lipstick were more popular than solid lashes. More than ever, eyelash styles were geared towards taking out and framing the eye, for example by painting the upper lash line. Horus, a frequently used symbol in the Gothic subculture, provided inspiration for new interpretations of makeup for celebrities, musicians and movie characters alike. Madonna – avid fans of eyelashes became the next big thing when Madonna’s “Eyelashes of Horus” appeared in 1990, the first in a series of “Hercules” eyelashes.

In an era when individuality with stylish lashes was a priority, the majority of women opted for long, curly lashes. The long-lash mania was revived in the 1990s, with upper and lower lashes heavily coated with black mascara.

To understand why false eyelashes were created in the first place, we need to break down why long eyelashes are considered a seductive feature in the first place. Given that men naturally have longer lashes, it is a synonym for femininity – perhaps a little odd – but lush lashes were a desirable feature for women and men alike. Since the ancient Egyptians, eyelashes have not been assigned to a gender specific category and, unlike modern cultures, they have not been grouped.

The pressure to conform to these standards was compounded by the country’s own pop culture, which depicted heterosexual romances in K-dramas and even K-pop. Many would say that the new juggernaut of “American industry” is driving them around the world at a frantic pace. Merchandise based on this fan fandom has seen a sales boom as pop culture has conquered both the big and the small screens.

It is interesting to note that foreign media companies have also contributed to the spread of “American popular culture,” but it is worth noting that they are not the only ones.

There is also a pop-cultural landmark in God is a Woman and the accompanying sweetener tour documentary that inspired her. Ariana Grande paid homage to the iconic Gaultier cone bra Madonna wore on her tour, as well as  Marilyn Monroe cone bras of the same style in her video “God is a Woman,” so the influence is everywhere. Eyelashes are an important part of achieving some sort of retro-bomb 50s glamour, but they’re not the only ones.

On a more personal level, pop culture has helped people grow up and accept themselves more by looking at themselves as more than just “pop culture icons” or “pop stars.” In the 1920s, false eyelashes were a popular choice among actresses and fashionistas, and improved manufacturing techniques meant they were soon made for the masses. In this decade, the plastic eyelash was also introduced, putting an end to the practice of making eyelashes from fabric and real human hair. Anyone can be a fan of individually placed, long-lasting lashes.

Lashes has been influencing pop culture since the 1930’s and until now we have been able to master how to wear them comfortably. There are some lashes that are just as lite as a feather and you do not feel anything. Comfortable eyelashes have changed the game for this year 2020. You can use them daily or on a special occasion, there is a lash out there for every occasion.
