Want those fluttery, Barbie-like lashes? Why rely on troublesome extension or harmful chemicals when you can go natural? Here are easy ways:

It is rich in the required vitamins and minerals. Dip a cotton swab in some olive oil and apply it gently on the eyelashes every night before hitting the bed.

2 Castor Oil and Vitamin E potion:

Castor oil is thick in density, so mix it with a light oil like Vitamin-E, and then apply for a smoother application. It boosts blood circulation within the hair follicles and helps in growth.

3 Green Tea:
