Posted by Ellen on Fri, 05/02/2014 - 12:00 AM

We’ve all mastered at least one trick that astonishingly transforms thin, wiry lashes into the lushest things our eyelids have ever endured. However holding up fake lashes can get tiring, because really, is there any other lengthening and thickening trick more magnificent?  


Actually, there is and we’ve got 8 of them.


Mascaras & Primers

Yes, we know, of course you can create thicker, fuller lashes with just a few coats of mascara. After all, that’s why the cosmetic industry created the beauty essential. But we’ve got to admit some mascara’s do the trick better than others, not to mention there’s a hidden helper, lash primer, that can deliver an extended boost.



Growth Products

While mascara does a great job of masking your lack of lashes, sometimes you just really want more actual lashes. The following products have been formulated to increase lash growth.





DIY Serum

 Sometimes the best trick of all can be the simplest. If whipping up a serum made from a few basic ingredients appeals to your beauty sensibilities then you may want to give this DIY concoction a try.


  • Essential Lash Serum:  You’ll need Vitamin E capsules, Almond Oil and Castor Oil. In a 2 ounce container mix equal parts Almond Oil and Castor Oil. Then puncture the Vitamin E capsule and squeeze its contents into the oil mixture. Once all three ingredients are stirred together spread this antioxidant-rich serum along your lash line with a q-tip. It’s best to apply the serum at night, washing it away in the morning. The antioxidants in the oil and capsule will help moisturize and strengthen the lash follicles, promoting growth in about four to five weeks.
