These actually work! I can’t believe how much darker, thicker and longer my lashes are after trying these tricks.

Here are a few natural remedies to give you your longest lashes ever. Careful though, you might stop traffic. All you need is a few household items and a disposable mascara brush (or clean fingers).

Petroleum Jelly

This stuff will make your eyelashes grow faster and thicker in just a few days. It will moisturize your lashes to prevent them from falling out or breaking. Here’s a tip, petroleum jelly will also get off the stubborn residue makeup that your makeup remover doesn’t. It’s perfect to use before bed, and it works best with time to soak in overnight.

Olive Oil and Castor Oil

Use a disposable mascara brush to mix the oils together and coat your lashes with both before you go to bed. This seriously works miracles for your eyelashes while you sleep. Hello, length!


Not as messy as you would think. Take off your makeup then try rubbing a little honey on your lashes before you hop in the shower. Rinse them off after. The honey coats your eyelashes (even after you take it off) to make them stronger and prevent breakage.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil grows your lashes with lightning speed. Plus, it’s also great for taking off makeup. Focus on the base of your eyelashes to aid in growth, but coat the tips to prevent breakage.

Any of these natural remedies or a combination of them will give your eyelashes incredible length that everyone will notice. If you apply them consistently, you could start to see results in a few days.

In the meantime, here are a couple makeup hacks to make your eyelashes look super long and thick.

Heat up your eyelash curler

Run your curler under some warm water or under a blow-dryer. Test it to make sure it isn’t too hot, then curl away and voila – your eyelashes look curlier and longer than they ever have before.

Loose powder

Start with your bare, curled lashes. Use a disposable mascara brush and brush some loose powder through your eyelashes before you coat them with mascara. This trick will make your eyelashes look effortlessly thick. Graze the tips of your lashes with mascara above the curling crease to avoid uncurling them.
