National Lash Day | February 19
(Last Updated On: February 15, 2023)


National Lash Day on February 19th each year promotes the love and need for true and false eyelashes. The day offers an opportunity to explore the benefits and fashion of lashes. 


Eyelashes are a staple item to every makeup look and beauty enthusiast. Lashes have always been known to make your eyes pop and stand out from the crowd. As important as how they make us look, they also help keep dirt or substances from entering the eye and aid in preventing infections. Another important benefit eyelashes provide is preventing eye moisture from evaporating. Lashes shade our eyes in a variety of lengths and colors, too. Needless to say, eyelashes are a true necessity for every person at any age. 


  • Show off your lashes.
  • Explore information on lash care.
  • Dress up your lashes with your favorite products.
  • Celebrate your lashes in every shape and style by using #NationalLashDay to post on social media.
