text size A A A

Your eyes are the most striking part of your face, so it definitely makes sense to play up your eyelashes for the ultimate enhancement. No matter the shape or color your eyes are, having long and thick lashes will add a ton of mystery and make your eyes appeal attractively. We all know using false eyelash extensions will certainly do the trick for temporary results, but why not use natural ways to get smooth and longer lashes?

Here are some tips to help you get longer and thicker eyelashes:
Olive Oil
Olive Oil is considered to be one of the best natural treatments to achieve longer lashes.

Castor Oil
Castor oil is known to work wonders to help grow out lashes. It not only increases hair growth but also contains amazing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that are combined with a rich source of nutrients to aid in growth encouragement. Make sure to use an all-natural brand and apply a cotton swab dipped in castor oil to the roots of your eyelashes. Always work your way up from the roots down to the ends of the lashes. Remember that a little goes a long way so for one drop to cover the lashes per eye.

Mix Olive Oil & Castor Oil Together
Both oils provide great benefits, so why not mix them together for ultimate results? Mix both oils together with equal parts. Apply the mixed oil onto your lashes as this will promote growth and strengthen your eyelashes.

Petroleum Jelly
Apply pure petroleum like Vaseline to your eye lashes every night to promote thick hair regrowth. This will make them longer and thicker overnight. Just be sure to wash it off in the morning before you apply makeup as the residue will become greasy.

Green Tea
Green Tea helps promote healthy growth for your eyelashes to help make them stronger, thicker, and longer. Add pure green tea leaves to warm water and cautiously apply it to your eye lashes.

Lemon Peels
Use Lemon peels and soak them in castor oil or olive oil for at least a few days. Make sure not to get them directly in the eyes

Trim Eyelashes
Cutting your eyelashes may seem cliché but trimming your lashes once every 2-3 months will stimulate the hair follicle of your eyelashes to make eyelash enhancement faster. Make sure to just trim 1/4th of your lashes.

Healthy Diet
Without a healthy diet; your hair, lashes, and nails won’t properly grow. Eating super foods are great for boosting your health and enhancing growth of you eye lashes. Add fresh fruits like apples, guavas; consume green veggies; and include lean sources of protein like eggs, fish and meat. Always make sure to never skip on breakfast and include good sources of fat into your daily diet.

Massage Your Eyelids
Massaging your eyelids along the lash line will help to increase the blood flow and circulation. This will help encourage your eye lashes to grow faster. Make sure to use clean hands before you gently massage the eyelid area.

Sprinkle Baby Powder over Eyelashes
Sprinkling baby powder or translucent power creates a strong grip to make your lashes stick on each coat of mascara. This will make your eyelashes become more voluminous and well-defined.

Always Coat Both Sides of Your Lashes
Coat both sides of your eye lashes and alternate in between each coat. This will make the hairs of the lashes fully covered, resulting in a thicker and much longer in appearance.

Use a Spoon
Grab a spoon places it underneath your eye every time you apply mascara on the lower lashes. This will help avoid mistakes and unwanted marks on your skin, with a more defined result. Make sure to have the curved side facing face and apply mascara like you usually would. You can also do this on the upper eye lashes for more definition and coverage.

Bend the Mascara Brush
Gently bend the brush tip of the mascara to make it perpendicular towards the handle. This angle will help make the brush easier to control as well as reach those harder-to-reach areas, especially when applying a few coats of mascara to your upper and lower eye lashes.

Always Remove Eye Makeup
Makeup, especially mascara can clog the skin around your eyes and make it thinner than it already is. Mascara is already too heavy for the lashes, meaning it will begin to thin out and ultimately fall off. It is important to always wash off make up and be very gentle when removing your mascara. When you become too rough, your lashes will become very sparse and may not grow back. Eye lashes take a lot longer to grow when compared to your hair.

Remember that the safety and easiest way to get longer and thicker eyelashes is to follow a healthy diet and go for all natural treatments that will help keep your lashes healthy and even enhance growth. Try our tips out and let us know what has helped you.
