Fake Eyelashes in Sterile Compounding Area

We are reviewing our sterile compounding policies and are curious how other hospitals are handling fake eyelashes.

Do you specifically identify and prohibit the use of fake eyelashes in your Sterile Compounding Policies?

If no, do you consider fake eyelashes a "cosmetic" and require that they are removed prior to entering sterile compounding area?
