How to Grow Eyelashes Naturally at Home

Every makeup addict loves to do eye makeup. I am no different even I love to try different colors and patterns of makeup on my eyes. For party makeup I prefer glittery eye shades and for casual outings I pick up funky bright colored kohls. However any eye makeup from minimal to party looks best on full lash eyes. Eyelashes can add that extra oomph factor to the whole face. This is why for print shoots models wear lashes so that the eyes appear bigger and expressive. Fuller lashes are mostly achieved using the artificial lashes available in the market but why depend on artificial things when growing fuller lashes are so simple and completely natural. In fact wearing artificial lashes are not that easy, it needs practice to wear and especially to take off plus it feels bulky if worn for a long period. So here are some simple tips to add body to your lashes naturally.
