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’ve been using covergirl “plumplify” “50X” mascara. This seems to enhance my lashes even though they are short enough that I can’t use a curler effectively.
Thank you so much for being here for us girls.
I have done the eyelash extensions twice. The first time, foolishly, choose the second to longest c curl I could get. It makes a HUGE difference, and I ended up rubbing them off within a week. VERY noticeable, and extremely hard to hide when in male mode. The second time, much shorter, C and L curl, and absolutely loved them. Expensive tho, so I did not keep them.
Since I live and work fulltime as a woman I have no problems with my lovely extensions… I can’t imagine having them while in drab..
hi i am using lakme mascara which is available in india
i don wear false eyelashes ilike looking natrual
I have been using Careprost. Which is the third of the cost of Lattice. Careprost is the generic version of Lattice and my lashes have never been so long and beautiful. I got mine at WWW. Lashes4lesa.net.Been using it for 8 months.
this link no longer works
not Lashes4lesa…. I think Sara made a typo
I suggest using a natural vegetable oil like ricinus communis oil. It’s also good for the hair
I have been using Latisse, actually sneaking my wives bottle for the past year and it is amazing. I always have had long lashes but now they are both longer and fuller. Now I can bat my pretty lashes and you can really see them. A MAC makeup consultant recently told me I don’t need to bother with false lashes. Now I just curl them and apply mascara and I am ready to go!
