Of all the details that go into your feminine look, eyelashes just might have the biggest bang.
Long lashes make your eyes look bigger and brighter – downplaying facial flaws and making you look much more feminine.
In other words, lashes are a girl’s best friend!
Beyond the basics of mascara and false lashes, there are some unique ways to give your eyelashes serious sex appeal.
Read on for 4 eyelash innovations that will transform your face:
1. Eyelash Extensions
Eyelash extensions are a huge beauty trend right now. And why not? Who wouldn’t want long, gorgeous lashes for up to 8 weeks?
Eyelash extensions cost an average of $100-$300, with touchups averaging $25-$75. While the treatment is pricy and time consuming (the lashes must be applied one-by-one), most lash lovers will tell you it’s worth the investment.

Want long lashes without the hassle of extensions or false eyelashes? Latisse might be the option you’re looking for.
Latisse is an FDA-approved treatment for growing eyelashes. It increases the growth phase of your eyelashes, causing them to grow thicker, longer, and darker. Most people see dramatic results within 12 weeks. (Read reviews here.)
The Latisse kit costs around $120, but since it must be dispensed by a doctor, you also have to factor in the cost of the office visit.
3. Lash Growth Serum
Another option for enhancing your natural lashes is to use a non-prescription lash growth serum. These products contain ingredients that stimulate eyelash growth.
While the results might not be as dramatic as Latisse, the price is right. Here are some products to try:
- Rimmel Lash Accelerator Serum ($10)
- L’Oreal Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum ($15)
- Givenchy Mister Lash Booster ($30)
- Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to Die for Turbo ($80)
- Revitalash Advanced ($98)
4. Fiber Mascara
Finally, if you just want a quick and easy way to get big, sexy lashes, try a fiber mascara. These are mascaras that contain special fibers that bind together to build out the lashes. It’s the best way to get that false eyelash look using only mascara.
Popular fiber mascaras include:
- Covergirl Super Sizer Fibers
- Ulta Fabulous Fiber Mascara
- Physician’s Formula Instant Lash Extension Kit
- Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes
- D.J.V. MIARAY Fiberwig Mascara
Don’t forget your lashes!
Eyelashes might be a small detail, but as you can see, they can have a dramatic impact on your looks.

I am very new to TG girl “stuff” so I would love to put mascara on, but I do not know how….
you tube is your friend for things such as this. Oh, and you can purchase almost anything you need on ebay or Amazon if you’re not comfortable shopping in retail stores. And don’t expect glamorous results on the first try but with a little practice you’ll amaze yourself!
Latisse is amazing. I have got to try.
I bought some Fiberwig Mascara and it looks great…I haven’t went out yet but I am trying to find the courage to do so. And this helps a lot. Thank you.
I use mascara more often and and my eyelashes look really wonderful. My friends are jelous of my long eye lashe as I am T.G male. With my amble breasts and long eye lashes I can easily mix with girls.
Thanks for the great article Lucille which has given eveyone the chance to comment. Just love this site !!!!!
I use revitalash and have had no problems with irritation like others, as fir mascara, I wouldn’t be seen without it – think it’s an essential !!! My gave is l’oreal
I’m pretty fortunate in the eyelash department. They are very long naturally. So, with a little mascara, they are more noticeable and look very feminine.
I am blessed with very beautiful eyes and eye lashes, but the tips of my eye lashes are blonde. So just putting regular mascera on makes them look almost twice as long as without. Besides, I wouldn’t want to use anything that would change my eye color.
