A woman has warned people of the dangers of using an eyelash curler after applying mascara as she revealed she accidentally yanked half of them out.
The woman revealed the disastrous results of the fail on TikTok, where she’s known as @roomeyroo.
In the video that’s been viewed more than 2.4 million times, the woman urged people not to make the same mistake she did as she explained where she went wrong.
She said she’d been crimping her lashes with an eyelash curler after she’d applied mascara when she noticed that nearly all of her lashes had come away with it.
She warned: “And THIS is why you NEVER rush your make-up… I’m done.
“They better grow back!! The pain. Someone, please help me,” she captioned her video, before adding: “Advice welcome!”
Since being posted, the video has racked up almost 300,000 likes and 12,700 comments from horrified viewers.
One person said: “I’ve done this before. It grows back slowly but surely.”
Another commented: “I don’t claim any negative energy from this video.”
“When I tell you my jaw dropped!! My worst nightmare,” put a third.
A few people pointed out that you should only curl your lashes before you apply mascara to ensure this doesn’t happen.
And others suggested that she use castor oil to help them grow faster.
