I know you want to bat your eyelashes again.
But they’re either too short, too sparse, too thin or too meager.
Whoever said you can’t be too rich or too thin clearly didn’t figure eyelashes into the equation.
So, what can you do?
I’m glad you asked.
Spoiler Alert: This post contains a surprise giveaway. Read all the way through and you’ll see what I mean. (Although if you cheat and go right to the bottom, I’ll never know. But you’ll miss some useful things.)
Mascaras can create a so-called trompe-l’oeil effect (Always wondered how to pronounce that French word for “deceive the eye?”)
Sure, mascara is temporary. But so is fame…and it’s nice while it lasts.
I remember trying false eyelashes as a teenager. I’d venture to say I was somewhat clueless… and always ended up looking like I was
trying too hard wearing false eyelashes.
I haven’t gotten up the courage to try again. Because sometimes the past is best left at just that.
But…there are tons on the market and they do look tempting and much more user-friendly than before.
Some things do get better with age.
Eyelashes are applied for you. Individually. One. By. One.
I’d say it’s a painstakingly slooow process. Other people would say it’s so worth it.
The eyelashes can last up to two months. They come in silk, mink or natural hair.
Haven’t done it (yet) but I don’t think I will. (I have enough trouble sitting still for my twice-montly gel manis).
But I have seen people with eyelash extensions and they do look mighty good.
That’s what you want to ask your doctor if you choose to use Latisse, a prescription treatment to grow eyelashes.
lt was actually discovered by accident. When people with glaucoma started using the prescription eyedrop Lumigan, they noticed an unexpected side effect: their eyelashes were growing longer, thicker and darker.
Apply it daily along the last line of your upper eyelid. Tick tock..in about four weeks your eyelashes will be amazing.
Rapidlash is one of those magic serums on the market that helps enhance, condition and strengthen eyelashes, no prescription necessary.
A single brush stroke. Nightly. On lashes or on brows.
This really works – I know, because I’m using it. (And all this time you thought I was naturally blessed with thick eyelashes. Fooled you.) You can see results in as little as 30 days.
What it’s got: “A unique proprietary mix of six highly effective ingredients including essential proteins, vitamins and other moisturizing and rejuvenating ingredients.” The brand has trademarked the name “Hexatein 1 Complex.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
The Giveaway! One reader will be randomly selected to win their very own tube of Rapidlash, valued at $49.95.
However, I know some of my friends have been using different serums that seem to have really enhanced their natural lashes. A few of them are currently using the Xlash serum and they’ve all given pretty good reviews. Sometimes, it’s down to trial and error with serums. What works for some people’s eyelashes, might not work for yours. It’s all about finding the products that impact your lashes the most. Have a look around before purchasing the first one you see!
Stick with it.
Rapidlash and Latisse require dedication. You not only have to remember to use them, but you have to keep using them. If you don’t, your eyelashes will be like Cinderella’s coach and turn back into
a pumpkin what they were before they were long and luscious.
Dedication, as always, pays dividends.

Make sure to include a niggling BeautyQ – that stands for “beauty question” – in your comment. (Because I want to write about what you wonder about. There must be something you wonder about, no? If not, ask a friend.)
Sit back and wait for an email from me telling you that Friday the 13th actually brought you good luck.
Respond within 24 hours or else someone else will be batting their eyelashes (and thanking both you and me).
