Caring for your beautiful eyelashes

Every woman wishes to have her eyes framed by long, thick lashes. It is more practical and convenient to maintain your own natural eyelashes than to invest time and money in fake ones. Even if Mother Nature has neglected them, you can still achieve the effect of long, curled lashes if you give them some proper care.
If you have forgotten about the eyelash brush laying at the bottom of your cosmetics bag, now is the time to bring it out and find its uses. It is recommended that the eyelashes be brushed twice a day from root to tip.
Eyelashes also love castor oil, so it will be wise to keep a flask in your medicine cabinet. At night before you go to sleep, ask a member of your family to rub some castor oil on your lashes, while you keep your eyes closed. Remove it after 10 minutes with a cotton ball or pad.
There is another homemade recipe that will make you proud of your eyelashes. Mix 10 grams of Vaseline, 7 grams of castor oil and 0.25 grams of tannin. Apply mixture daily to make your eyelashes grow and become silky soft.
Never cut your eyelashes, even if their tips are sun burnt. This will not make them grow longer.
A few advices for makeup
If you wish to avoid your eyelashes clinging together while applying mascara, keep the brush vertical instead of horizontal. This way you can almost cover each lash individually.
To make your lashes look optically thicker, trace their base with dark-brown pencil eyeliner.
It is often thought that putting makeup on the lower lashes makes the eyes look smaller. This is possible in some cases. The best way to find out is to try it on yourself and see how you like the result. It is quite possible that putting makeup on your lower lashes will be the touch that gives your gaze depth and a hint of mystery.
