A young woman shared with internet users a moment in time when she used to rock long, false eyelashes — something she now deeply regrets.

Tsholofelo Michelle Mabote, who uses the handle @peppermint79 on TikTok, posted a video of herself with a text that read the following:

"I had fake friends. You can't convince me otherwise. What in the lash blindness?"

The video then cuts to Tsholofelo wearing thick eyelashes that reach her eyebrows. When she looked around, the woman's eyes became extra big, giving the illusion that the lashes were heavy as her eyes moved.
