We all want long, curly, and naturally dark eyelashes. It’s the dream, but unfortunately, we’re not all born with naturally long eyelashes. And that is why people use mascara, fake eyelashes, and get eyelash extensions and lash lifts. Eyelash extensions are an easy way to make it look like you have naturally long lashes and cut your makeup routine in half, but they definitely get pricey.

But luckily, If you want the appearance of eyelash extensions but don’t want to go through all the work to get them, there are other ways you can achieve it. Here’s how you can grow long and curly eyelashes at home:

Olive oil
Olive oil isn’t just useful in the kitchen; it can boost your eyelashes, too! Olive oil is rich in fatty acids that moisturize and soften your eyelashes. It can improve your lashes’ length and strength, and it’s best to apply on with a reusable mascara brush.

Vitamin E oil
Vitamin E oil is useful for many purposes: it’s excellent for your skin, hair, and even your lashes! Try mixing Vitamin E oil with Castor oil and coconut oil for a homemade eyelash serum. The combination will keep your lashes strong and healthy.

Eyelash growth serum
This is a more pricey option than the oil you might already have at home, but using an eyelash serum is a great way to grow your lashes. Find one that’s made with plant peptides and biotin that promote growth and will keep your lashes strong and healthy.

Coconut oil
Coconut oil is an oil with many uses, and it’s excellent for moisturizing your lashes. Gently rub your eyelashes with coconut oil and watch it work its magic, leaving your eyelashes soft and helping them grow. You can use coconut oil combined with other oils (like Vitamin E) or on its own.

Castor oil
Castor oil is actually used in many lash serums, so using it on its own will definitely help to grow your lashes. You want to make sure you use 100% Castor oil as that will work the best for promoting hair growth.
