Cynthia Bailey from The Atlanta Housewives lost her eyelashes this week - her REAL eyelashes.

The reality star beauty accidentally pulled out her real eyelashes when she pulled off her false sets. The Atlanta housewife broke the news on Instagram yesterday, and she shared a pic of herself - completely lash-free.

Cynthia explained in the post, “one of my rare days off. no make up. quick mani/pedi. wait! where are my dang eyelashes? yanking off my lashes in the car after work finally caught up to me. heard this would happen. crap!” 

Ouch. This photo is so painful to look at, minus her obvious beauty, of course. It had to be even more painful to yank out your own eyelashes.

Cynthia continued with, “now i gotta add growing my lashes back to my list of everything else i gotta do. any recommendations y’all?” Seriously, does anyone have some suggestions? This is rough.

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, if the eyelashes get pulled but the hair follicles are still intact, the lashes will usually grow back in 6 weeks. However, if the hair follicles were also damaged, the eyelashes might not grow back.
