How to Get The Thick Long Eyelash Effect without Using Fake Eyelashes

Updated on January 31, 2013

Tired of Using Fake Eyelashes?

I personally am not too fond of using fake eyelashes maybe because well.. they look fake! They also have a damaging effect on your natural eyelashes which is why many girls out there are looking for alternative ways to get longer, thicker eyelashes. Another reason why some women are not preferring fake eyelashes is because of how their skin reacts to the adhesive material. Is your skin sensitive? Do you get skin irritations and infections pretty fast? Then fake eyelashes are not for you!

On this page, you will get to read some other means by which you can get those long, thick eyelashes you are coveting for. Say bye bye to fake eyelashes forever!

Use the Right Mascara!

There are several mascaras out there that can help you in achieving long, thick eyelashes. I simply love the Maybelline's Great Lash. You will have to apply several coats of this mascara and then use a bit of eyeliner (on the upper and lower rims of your eye) to create those perfect, lustrous eyelashes. Also use the curler after application to get the super thick eyelash effect.

Another method is to combine a number of mascaras together. For example, you can use one for length extension and another one which gives the volume you are looking for to give the desired lustrous eyelash look.

Vaseline Just Might Be The Answer for You!

I have heard miracle stories of vaseline. Personally I haven't tried this but some of my friends swear by this technique. All you have to do is apply a bit of vaseline on your lashes. This helps your eyelashes from breakage and allows them to grow. You can apply and sleep overnight if it's going to be a hurdle during day time.

Fibrelash Brush on Lashes

This is a bit different from the usual mascara which is why I have mentioned it separately. Modelco FibreLash Brush-on Lashes has received many awards and has even been mentioned in the 2011 Harpers Bazaar UK's hot 100 list. I have tried this out and it did give my eyelashes a long, thick effect.

First you coat your eyelashes with the extension mascara. The other tube contains a brush which is similar to that of the mascara and it is lined with fibres. You apply this onto your lashes as you would apply mascara (one coat would be enough). These fibres then stick on to your natural lashes and make them appear longer. After application, you need to coat your lashes again with the extension mascara to complete the look.

      Dear Diva - An interesting Hub. I don't usually use mascara. Please tell me about washing off the mascara and what happens when you rub your eyes? Vaseline is petroleum based, and you probably don't want to use if have health concerns, or a "natural" freak, like me. Blessings, Debby

      You have some great advice here. I use Great Lash because my father got that for my very first ever mascara when he decided I was old enough to wear makeup. It used to work well but I think my lashes have become more sparse since I have grown older. It takes more and more. I could not use the fiber stuff because I think it would irritate my eyes. I will try Vaseline though. Thanks for the tips.

      Hmm, very interesting. :) This caught my attention because genetically speaking, I think my eyelashes were an oversight in my genetic code. I barely have them! :)

      I'm also really sensitive to mascara, but I might try the vaseline idea. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for the article. I'm going to try the vaseline. I just can't seem to get the knack of putting on lashes!
