Did chemo eat your eyelashes? There’s a lot of talk about what to do when chemo steals the hair on your head: wigs, hats, rocking the smooth look—but what about your lovely lashes? Don’t they deserve some love? How can you flutter those lovely lids if chemo has ransacked your lash line?

You might worry you’ll make a mess, glue them to your eyeball, or end up looking like prom night gone wrong.
