So, take a look at these tips for getting longer and pretty eyelashes..

Note: While applying anything on your eyelashes, you should maintain extra caution to prevent any ingredient from getting into your eyes. Also, be gentle in your approach to prevent the breaking of your precious eyelashes.


1. Apply Castor Oil

Castor oil is a super-effective natural oil that is often used for the purpose of stimulating growth of hair follicles. Just dip a clean mascara stick in some castor oil and then carefully apply it onto your lashes. You are free to leave it overnight or just keep it on for 30 minutes before wiping the oil off from your lashes.


2. Massage With Petroleum Jelly

A lot of women vouch by this particular tip for making your eyelashes appear lush and pretty. Before going to bed, massage your precious lashes with petroleum jelly. Also, be very careful while doing it, to avoid any harm to your eyes. So, give this incredible and super-effective tip a shot to get naturally glamorous eyelashes. It is ideal to try this at least 3-4 times in a week for best results.


3. Apply Vitamin E Oil

Scoop out the oil from a vitamin E capsule and gently apply it onto your lashes with the help of a clean mascara stick. The amazing properties of vitamin E oil can promote the growth of your lashes and also make them appear thick and lush. It is best to apply a thin coat of this oil to prevent your lashes from feeling too sticky. Also, this tip can be used on a daily basis to get the desired results.


4. Never Sleep With Mascara On

This tip may seem more like a golden rule that every woman who applies mascara should follow without fail. Sleeping with makeup, especially mascara on your lashes, can adversely affect the health and appearance of your eyelashes. To prevent your lashes from getting harmed, you should always remove the mascara before going to bed. This goes for all makeup items.


5. Apply Olive Oil

Like castor oil, olive oil too is a miraculous ingredient that can help your lashes get long and become lusher. In the similar manner, use a clean mascara stick to properly apply extra virgin olive oil on your lashes. Try this superbly effective tip at least 3-4 times in a week to get the kind of lashes that you desire.


6. Try An Eyelashes Growth Serum

There are a lot of eyelashes growth serums that are available in the stores these days. Pick the ones that are loaded with natural ingredients and try to promote the growth of your lashes. Many women have started using these types of serums to get gorgeous lashes that don't require fake extensions to look pretty and long.


7. Brush Your Eyelashes

This tip might sound a bit strange, but it can prove to be highly beneficial in improving the overall state of your eyelashes. You can use an eyebrow brush to brush your precious lashes. Doing this simple thing can make a world of difference to the health of your lashes. Try this on a weekly basis to enjoy long lashes.


8. Apply Aloe Vera Gel

This is one of the best tips that you can try to get long, lush and pretty-looking eyelashes. Take fresh gel from an aloe vera plant and apply it on your lashes.
