About fifteen years ago, FOF Judy McGill had a bug bite that turned into a scab above her eye. The scab had a lifting effect, pulling taut the loose skin on her eyelids. She wondered if there was a way she could recreate the look, this time on both of her eyes, after her scab healed. Judy, who worked at a grocery store at the time, perused the aisles and experimented with different materials until she found what she was looking for — surgical grade medical adhesive. She cut it to size and began wearing it in the contour of her eye lid.
“The effect was instant,” says her daughter, Victoria. “It tucked the loose skin into its natural crease and gave her such a youthful look.”
Judy spent the next few years making modifications to the strips such as adding “makeup-gripping” material to the top to hold liner and eyeshadow. She finally patented the product in 2001. Victoria began marketing and selling it when her mother fell ill with leukemia. “I knew how happy my mother had been when she wore the strips,” says Victoria. “I said to her, ‘what if we bring this to everyone?’ And we did.”
Today, celeb makeup artists including Patrick Eichler and Jennifer Snowdon swear by the crescent-shaped adhesive when they want to create a lifted, more defined eyelid–instantly. Be one of 20 FOFs who put them to the test…
