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

1 Olive Oil:

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:

It contains caffeine and flavonoids which help in strengthening your eye lashes.They also boost new growth too. Soak a cotton ball in freshly steeped green tea and gently swipe it on your lashes.4 Lemon peels soaked in olive oil:

Soak dried lemon peels in olive oil for 4-5 days. Applying this oil infused with the goodness of vitamin-C makes lashes long and strong.5 Wipe away makeup:

Wash it off or use a mild wet wipe. Soaked in toners, they come in variants like aloe vera, rose and eucalyptus.
