This short 3D animation for Revlon takes the viewer behind the science of eyelashes and how products are made to suit this very delicate environment.
Why do we have eyelashes?
Your eyelashes are meant to serve as a protective barrier to seal off your eyes from foreign objects or moisture and prevent irritation or infection. When you close your eyes, the curled lashes connect to form a seal and keep unwanted particles out. If your eyes are open, the curved shape of your lashes will help move water away from the eye.
Eyelashes also help us to detect foreign objects that get too close. For example, if a gnat is buzzing by your eyes and your lashes sense that movement they will trigger your eye to blink for protection.
