Why are men attracted to eyelashes?

Studies have shown that large eyes are more desirable in women. Because long eyelashes accentuate your eyes making them look bigger, which is a symbol of youth that is often associated with greater attractiveness. Which leads us to say that long eyelashes are more attractive to both girls and boys. Long eyelashes in men are one of the rare traits that make men more attractive to women.

These eyelashes are caused by a condition called trichomegaly. The condition is rare, but it can cause very long eyelashes without any other symptoms. Although they may look sexy, long eyelashes can cause dryness and deposit dirt on the eye. Yes, long eyelashes are an attractive facial feature for both men and women.

Long eyelashes tend to make the eyes look bold, shiny and accentuate the eyes. Long eyelashes are also an indicator of health, an extremely important factor in terms of biological attraction. Men, on the other hand, have smaller eyes than women, and they combine these smaller eyes with thick, fleshy eyelashes as a result of testosterone, which stimulates increased body hair growth, men's eyelashes appear longer, prettier and more attractive than women's eyelashes. Pazhoohi and Kingstone asked a sample of 132 university students to rank a series of images of faces in order of attractiveness.

On the one hand, the eyes and mouth are more reliable “attraction magnets” on a woman's face than on a man's face, says Marianne LaFrance, professor of psychology and gender and sexuality studies at Yale. An experiment published in Evolutionary Behavioral Sciences suggests that the most attractive eyelash length is approximately one-third of the width of the eye. The truth is that men all over the world find long eyelashes very attractive, it's just a matter of which direction they lean in. A study was recently conducted in which men were asked to rate the attractiveness of different women based on their eyelashes, and the results were quite interesting.

Many men assume that women find long eyelashes attractive because they add an illusion of sensuality to their face. A hot topic that many women wonder with men is whether or not they think women are attractive with false eyelashes or with natural eyelashes. Interestingly, participants rated the most attractive eyelash length differently for men's and women's faces, suggesting the interference of a cultural gender norm.
