How To Make Your Lashes Grow Longer

It seems like the older I get, the less long and full my lashes feel. Anyone else? I wish I could rewind the time and listen to my mom when she’d say, “Wash off your eye makeup before bed!” Alas, I’d imbibed too many drinks by that point and could only think about my “smokey” eyes getting some shut-eye on the pillow.

Keeping your lashes long means taking care of them. Eyeliners and mascaras, no matter the ingredients – organic or not – should be washed off before bed every night. Understandably, there might be the occasional evening of such debauchery that all you can think of later is whether that cute boy you gave your number to will call you. Naturally, such thoughts can impair your better judgments and you just might forget to wash your makeup off. That’s okay. We’re saying to get in the habit of doing it most nights.

There are also products to help make the look you like become more natural (and we don’t mean the kind where you have to go into the doctor’s office for treatments!): Grande Natural and its new GrandLASH Enhancer Boosting System includes GrandLINER. This double-duty liner also claims to enhance lashes in 4-6 weeks. Their mascara claims to do the same – and here’s how:

  • Hyaluronic acid: This water-binding ingredient helps naturally promote long lashes.

  • Peptides: An effective combination of amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.

  • Pantethine: This active form of pantothenic acid helps soothe the lash base and gives it that healthy balance.

  • Hydrolyzed glycosaminoglycans: Sure, that sounds like a mouthful, but this highly effective moisturizing and hydrating agent has conditioning properties that helps moisture and add sheen to lashes.

A three monthly supply costs $65 and can be purchased at

CITY LASH is another product on the market that’s been receiving a lot of praise. The product claims to increase your lash line by up to 72% with no side effects by using clinically proven ingredients (SymPeptide™) and the newest lash treatment technology. What’s more, you’ll start seeing those results within two weeks! CITY LASH is safe, natural, fragrance free, and contains no prostaglandin or paraben, which can damage eyes and skin. You can even apply it to your brows for a more thickening effect!

CITY LASH should be used twice daily on clean, dry skin before you put on any makeup. You can purchase it here and one tube costs $80.

Enjoy your luscious lashes, darlings!
