Is it permissible to apply fake eyelashes?

Some women like to put false eyelashes such that they are individually fastened between their natural eyelashes, which may remain for several days. What is the ruling on using these eyelashes in terms of the validity of ablution (wudu) and ritual wash (ghusl)?

This hinders the validity of ablution (wudu) and ritual washing (ghusl), therefore it is not permissible to use based on obligatory precaution unless, for example, it is necessary to lift an unbearable hardship. Moreover, if it is considered an ornament it must be covered [in front of a non-mahram male] based on obligatory precaution.
