I had a nasty accident when using my eyelash curler & it ripped out ALL of my lashes, I was horrified | The Sun

A BEAUTY fan has revealed her horror after ripping out her entire lash line after slipping while using a pair of eyelash curlers.

Merrick Bourgeois, who is from the US, took to TikTok and shared a video where she explained how she ripped out all of her eyelashes.

In the clip, she begins: "So, everyone who knows me knows I am a huge advocate for the eyelash curler. I keep one in my car, my purse, my makeup bag – the whole nine yards.

"So yesterday, I was curling my eyelashes like normal. I did the right eye, everything was fine, then I go to do my left eye and stop paying attention."

Demonstrating how she looked away, Merrick explains: "So I'm curling them like this not looking.

"Well, my hand slipped and when my hand slipped – gone!
She gone, she dead!

"I thought I got only one, two, maybe three out because it didn't hurt that bad but I definitely felt some of them disappear.

"And so I go to check the eyelash curler and I see my whole lash line stuck to it – hair follicles and everything.
