Specification of Letters latent.

Application filed February 10, 191 Serial No. 607,810.
To all whom it my concern;
Be it known that l, ANNA TAYLOR, of 135 Third avenue, in the cit of Ottawa, county of Carleton, Province 0 Ontario, Dominion of Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Artificial Eyelashes; and T do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same.
The invention relates to im rovements in artificial eyelashes, and the ob ects of the invention are to improve the personal appearance of the wearer, without adding discomfort, and. generally to provide in such articles the natural efi'ect at a minimum cost, and it consists essentially of the novel means used for projecting short lengths of hair outwardly from the eyelid, the particular form and arrangement being described in detail hereinafter and shown in the accordpanying drawings that form part with this specification.
lnthe drawings, Figure 1 is a side view of a "face, showing the application of this invention to the eyelid. Fig. 2 is an enlarged plan view of the eyelash. Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross sectional view on the line A-B in Fig. 2.
Like numerals of reference indicatecorresponding parts in each figure.
Referring to the drawings, 1 is the backing or eyelash support, formed of a piece of material referably transparent, though it may be e? a skin color and substantially of the shape of a crescent, having the ends clapped ed at 2, 3 being si e I shown as the upper and 4 as the under side. 5 are short lengths of hair, representing the eyelashes and preferably attached to the under side by a wax process, adjacent to the convex edge of the piece 1 and extending outwardly therefrom.
6 is an adhesive, covering of the piece of material 1.
In the use of this invention, the piece of material, which is shown of a shape to conform to the lower edge of the eyelid of the person, is fitted on said eyelid after the adhesive surface is brought to a condition to make the said material stick tightly on the skin, the hair will then extend outwardly from the back over the natural eyelashes of the person and rest thereon and thus produce the efi'ect of very thickeyelashes, as the artificial eyelash may be made any suitable way, that is, very long, very thick or the under side curled, as regards the hair.
The piece of material 1 on the eyelid will be practically invisible, though if there is any chance of it being seen with the naked eye, a little making up, by well known methods, will entirely hide it.
What I claim as my invention is:
In an artificial eyelash, a strip of material substantially crescent shaped with the ends clipped oil, short lengths of hair projecting outwardly from the convex side of the crescent shape in the form of eyelashes and fixedly secured adjacent to said edge on the under side of the strip, and an adhesive spread over the under side of said strip.
Signed at the city of Ottawa, this seventh day of February, 1911.
