Even if you weren’t born with luscious lashes, there are ways you can amp yours up. Sure, experimenting with mascaras and falsies works, but you can also try serums and natural remedies that could give you the long lashes you’ve only wished for.
Latisse—originally Lumigan, a glaucoma eye-drop medication—is an FDA-approved drug used to facilitate lash growth. To apply it, you use an eye dropper to plop the substance onto your lash line every night before bed. Use it consistently and you may have longer lashes within a month.
You can also use olive oil, which contains vitamin E and antioxidants that promote hair growth. Infuse a cotton swab with some olive oil, then apply the oil to the base of your lash line where the eyelash meets your eyelid. Do this every night for two to three months.
Coconut oil can also help moisturize and strengthen your lashes. Take a clean lash brush and dip it into some melted coconut oil. Brush your lashes with this oil daily. You may see longer lashes within five weeks.
