Some people are #blessed with naturally thick and luscious lashes. These girls go out with absolutely no mascara or falsies on, but still look absolutely glam-ready. While there's no doubt that a trusty mascara and a pair of falsies can make your lash game instantly dramatic, there are just days when you want to have dramatic peepers minus all the works. The good news is, it's totally possible, Candy Girls! You don't have to splurge on expensive lash serums because with these household items you probably already have at home, you can achieve the same results! So read up and be on your way to thicker and stronger lashes, STAT!

Olive oil

Olive oil has been around for ages and has been used for a myriad of different beauty recipes. Apart from its popular culinary significance, did you know that olive oil is also famous for enhancing hair growth? This multi-use product can moisturize and strengthens hair follicles to prevent breakage and brittleness. Nourish your lashes every night with a light coat of extra virgin olive oil using a Q-tip for healthier and fuller lashes.


Coconut oil

Like olive oil, coconut oil is another miracle product that you probably already have lying around the house. An all-natural coconut oil is safe to put around your eyes and won't irritate them like some mascaras or eye makeup does. So pour a few drops of coconut oil on a cotton ball and dab it gently on your lashes before hitting the sheets for extra shine.

Castor oil

Castor oil contains Vitamin E and tons of other nutrients, which help promote hair growth. A word of caution though, when it comes to using Castor oil, because of its thick consistency, less is always more. So make sure to apply it sparingly. Use it together with coconut oil for an effective concoction that'll get you thicker lashes in just a few weeks!
