In brief: Trichotillomania

Actually, pulling out eyelashes has a medical name (see above), and has been linked to anxiety disorders and stress.
It would be a great idea to discuss this with a counselor or therapist to discuss stress management tools and the underlying cause of anxiety.

In brief: Not usually

Many women -and some men-do so at times for cosmetic purposes.
