Always Remove Your Eye Make-Up
The skin around your eyes is very thin and fragile. Makeup can clog the skin around your eyes and mascara can tend to be very heavy on your eyelashes.

It’s advisable that you remove your eye makeup, or any makeup for that matter, every night before you hit the covers.

Apart from this, it can thicken your eyebrows' hair and act as a great skin moisturizer. Take cold-pressed castor oil in a small bottle. Dip an eyeliner brush in the bottle. Apply on your lashes like mascara.
Aloe vera is another great home remedy to help you get those long, lustrous lashes. Use a mascara brush, dip it in aloe vera gel and leave it on overnight. Rinse with water the following morning.
