In my last post I talked about mascara. I love mascara, it has changed my life. No joke. But the difference between me versus other people, my eyes and eyelashes are huge. I never had to use these voluminous mascara or need to wear false eyelashes.
But for those who have trouble with their lashes, whether it be they’re not long enough of thick enough I have the tips for you. I’ve been noticing my eyelashes have been not on their A game recently, mainly because I’ve been over working them with mascara, so I’ve found ways to help grow them out and get them looking full and long.
1. Olive Oil, yes Olive Oil
Olive Oil isn’t just good for cooking, it’s actually good for growing out your eyelashes. Olive oil is actually very good to use on your hair and eyebrows, a lot of the ingredients in olive oil help with rapid hair growth. I searched up online one day how I could grow my eyelashes, and I came across this. I thought to myself great, I already have olive oil let’s give this a try.
You can use a cotton ball or an old mascara wand you’ve cleaned off for this or even your fingers. Get a little bit of olive oil on whatever you’re using and comb through your lashes. Make sure you rub the olive oil onto your lash line so it can help grow out every individual hair. You can either leave it on over night and then wash it off, or wait 5-10 minutes and then wash it off.
Do this for about a month, and you’ll notice a big change. It does take a while, but the benefits and results are totally worth it.
2. Makeup that helps Eyelashes grow???
Believe it or not, there is makeup out there that help eyelashes grow. I was in need of a new eyeliner because the eyeliner I was using previously was not cutting it for me anymore. I was in Walmart and went to the makeup section, and like magic I found an eyeliner that has serum to help your eyelashes grow.
This eyeliner has saved my life, literally, Just kidding BUT it did save my eyelashes. This is a great dupe for the Kat Von D tattoo liner, way more affordable and pigmented. I love how it does wear for 24 hours, I wear it to school and to work and by the end of the day it still looked good. And yes I do notice the difference now with my eyelashes, they look thicker and longer so I definitely recommend this eyeliner in case if you want to get some extra help. It’s about $8 at Walmart and they have it at Ulta.
3. Give your eyes a break
The only way you can really let your eyelashes grow, is if you give your eyes a break. Limit yourself on mascara, try to only wear it 1 or 2 times a week. I stopped wearing mascara and makeup altogether to give my face a break, and it really does help you. Giving your eyes a break helps your eyelashes repair themselves on their own without having damaging products on them. Giving them a break while doing the olive oil treatment will help you a lot in noticing the difference and seeing your eyelashes grow thick and long.
