Lashes are a very small feature that can completely transform your look in an instant. From mascara to false lashes, there are a few ways for you to enhance your lashes from the comfort of your own home. However, if you’re looking for a lash boost that’s more permanent, it’s time to put the mascaras down and try out some of our favorite ways to grow (and regrow), long, luscious lashes:

Add a lash serum to your daily routine

Similarly to the facial serums out there designed to give your skin all the TLC it needs, there are many lash serums that you can use to bring your lashes from drab to fab. The eyes and the skin around the eyes can be very sensitive, so make sure you read reviews on serums before deciding which one to add into your lash routine for fuller, thicker lashes.

Our Pick: Milk Makeup Kush Growhouse Lash + Brow Serum, $50

Apply castor oil on your lashes regularly

If lash serums are too much for your delicate eyes or you prefer something derived from natural ingredients, you can’t go wrong with castor oil. This simple and readily available ingredient contains ricinoleic acid which helps reduce hair loss. Additionally, castor oil seals in the lashes to prevent dehydration which can lead to breakage. No matter the type of castor oil you go for, with continued use it can dramatically enhance your lashes.

Our Pick: Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Black Castor Oil, $6.99

Take vitamins regularly, especially Biotin

Much like the hair on your head, healthy lashes require a balanced diet and daily supplements to thrive and remain healthy. If you’re taking daily multivitamins already, you're on the right track to getting the lashes of your dreams. If you really want to boost your lashes - try adding biotin, the key ingredient in many hair, skin and nail vitamins. Biotin, a supplement a part of the vitamin B family, helps to improve keratin production, a key protein that makes up your hair skin and nails. Adding this to your daily routine will do wonders for your lashes!

Our Pick: Nature's Bounty Biotin Supplement, Supports Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nails, $8.99
