I am trying to create eyelashes for my character and have tried a few tutorials, yet most are hard to follow, are there any ways to do this with minimal use of the particle system.

    $\begingroup$ There are many ways to make eyelashes, however some require more manual work than others. Particles are a quick way of making "a bunch" of an object, with easy settings to make each "duplicate" slightly different if desired (ex: varying hair length). Given that an entire category of the particle system is dedicated to hair, you might want to reconsider using it for eyelashes, as it's probably the easiest way. Is there something specific that's giving you trouble? I can walk you through the process if necessary. $\endgroup$ Aug 15 '20 at 0:54
  • $\begingroup$ I get stuck when trying to mirror changes over from one side to another. A video I tried says to delete one side of the particles and mirror it, yet on my file it won't mirror. $\endgroup$ Aug 15 '20 at 4:20
  • $\begingroup$ Do you mind sharing a link to the video? I could probably assist better if I knew the process they're using. $\endgroup$ Aug 15 '20 at 4:32
