Human eyelashes do so much more than just make your eyes look prettier; they provide the eyes with vital protection against dust, ultraviolet light, sweat, and other debris in the air. Eyelashes also play a role in giving sensory information to the brain, alerting it to objects that come too close to the eyeball. In fact, eyelashes are the driving force behind your blink response when something gets in the danger zone.

Of course, eyelashes are better known for their aesthetic importance, since they are also designed to provide a frame around the eyes. Subconsciously, they can even act as a cue to potential suitors that a particular woman is in good health. Typically, the fuller, thicker, and denser the lashes, the healthier the woman is perceived to be. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with gorgeous, naturally thick lashes.

Sparse, thin eyelashes may be caused by many factors, including allergies, nutritional deficiencies, and overall poor health. In some cases, even lashes that are quite thick can look thinner if they are light in colour. For example, women with blonde hair tend to have to work much harder to play up their lashes than those with dark hair, even though they may have perfectly luscious lashes.


Mascara is the most common way to achieve the illusion of thick lashes, with a whopping 65 percent of all women claiming to use it on at least a somewhat regular basis. The reason for its popularity is easy to understand: it's fairly inexpensive depending on the brand, and takes less than a few seconds to swipe across the lashes. It comes in three forms, with liquid being the most common, followed by cream and cake. While most women rely on black mascara, there are many other colors for those who enjoy experimenting a bit.

After mascara, false eyelashes are also a popular choice for those looking to plump up their lashes. Women can get them in both temporary and semi-permanent forms, which are similar to hair extensions. False eyelashes are applied using special glue, and are attached close to the natural lash line so that they look more natural. While false lashes are effective, they can fall off at the most inopportune time, and should not be worn overnight or in the shower.

Those who want to go a more natural and enduring route can opt for eyelash growth serums. While these do not provide immediate results, over time they can actually increase the overall thickness and plushness of lashes. The serums have an interesting history: they were developed after people who used special eye-drops to treat glaucoma notices that the drops were making their lashes grow thicker. Unfortunately, those first serums caused unwanted side effects, including hair growth in areas that came into contact with the solution, irritation around the eyes, and in some cases, even complete changes to the colors of the irises. Imagine having your entire eye color altered simply because you were trying to achieve prettier lashes!
