FACT 1

Approximately three in four* Japanese women have downward growing eyelashes.

<The average angle of eyelash growth of Japanese people -11.1°>*

According to our survey, the average angle of  eyelash growth for Japanese women was -11.1º.
Approximately three in four* Japanese women had downward growing eyelashes.
This means that most Japanese women start their eyelash makeup routine by curling their lashes upwards.

*Study by Kanebo (March 2010 on 193 Japanese women between 20 and 26 years old)

FACT 2

The angle of the eyelashes determines the brightness of the eye. 

An eye looks sparkling when 
light cast on it is reflected.
The angle of the eyelashes determines the amount of light cast on the eye. 
When eyelashes are curled upwards,more light is reflected on the eye, which makes the eye look brighter.

〜 Will sparkling eyes affect one‘s features?! 〜 

When individuals were presented with pictures of two people with a sparkle in the eye at different levels of brightness and were asked what they thought of their skin and features…

Most respondents thought 

“a person with a brighter sparkle had”
“Brighter skin”
“A more dimensional feature” 

“More depth”

The survey therefore indicated that sparkling eyes can change people’s impression of skin and features!

About the study on a sparkle in the eye

Experiment<Will sparkling eyes change the impression of skin and features?>
A psychological study was conducted by preparing photos of several women's faces with Low, Middle and High levels of sparking in their eyes to compare people’s changes in impression of the skin and features.
*12 Japanese men and women between 25 and 41 years old (Study by Kanebo on January 2018)

〜KATE has discovered the new standard for beautiful eyelashes!〜

The ideal eyelash curve has 
a 34 degree angle and a 3.4 mm rise.

We discovered that it is important for eyelashes to curve at 34 degrees and take in light in order to have eyes with more sparkle.
Furthermore, a 3.4 mm rise from the upper eyelid was defined as the most attractive-looking eyelashes.
