Cursed with short lashes! No worries! Check out these tips now to lengthen and strengthen your lashes!
1. Use Castor Oil
Castor oil is packed with fatty acids that help nourish your hair and skin, but just a little drop can also help make your eyelashes grow. Just apply a little oil onto a cotton swap and gently swipe your lashes and lash line.
2. Use Vaseline
A small glob of Vaseline can do wonders to your lashes. Use a disposable eyelash brush to coat and condition your lashes before bed and wash off in the morning.
3. Use Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E oil helps combats scars and dry skin. It also can make your lashes grow. Kourtney Kardashian wrote on her website that she and her long-lashed sisters use vitamin e oil on their lashes every night; something they have religiously been doing since high school!
4. Use Coconut Oil
Like castor oil, vitamin e oil, and vaseline, there are countless uses for coconut oil and one of them is making your lashes grow.
5. Use a Lash Serum
Out of everything listed, this is probably the most obvious tip to make your lashes grow. We are so lucky to live in the day and age where eyelash serums are a thing. And there are so many serums, from high-end to drugstore ones, that help make your lashes grow. Pick up a serum such as RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum during your next trip to Ulta.
6. Brush Your Eyelashes At Least Once Day
If you cannot invest in eyelash serum, no worries! There are plenty of other (and more affordable) tips to make your eyelashes grow such as brushing your lashes with a disposable eyelash brush at least once a day. By brushing your lashes, you naturally promote growth.
7. Take Biotin
Biotin is known as that one vitamin that makes your hair grow. As a lovely bonus, biotin also helps make your eyelashes grow as well as help improve your skin and complexion. Like they say, beauty from the outside always starts from the inside.
8. Use Micellar Water
Many of us are guilty of pulling and tugging at our lashes when we remove makeup. To avoid your lashes landing in your makeup remover wipe, try a more gentler solution such as using micellar water to get rid of any mascara residue.
9. Use a Conditioning Lash Primer
Lash primer is probably the most underrated makeup product of all time. We are so concerned about priming our skin that we forget about our lashes. The beauty of eyelash primer is that they help keep your mascara on all day without it flaking underneath your eyes. And while eyelash primer conditions and strengthens your lashes, some of them double as an eyelash enhancing serum such as Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume plumping Lash Primer. Yeah, that name is a mouthful but this grandiosely named product also gives you grandiose lashes
10. Avoid Fake Lashes and Mascara
Fake lashes, especially the cheap ones, are no good for your lashes. If applied incorrectly or worn too frequently, they can leave some serious damage to your lashes. And like how you are suppose to give your skin a break from foundation and concealer, you should also give your lashes a break from mascara as well. It is hard because most of us feel naked without mascara. However, some mascaras can be very drying and leave your lashes brittle so it always good to give yourself a temporary break.
