LATISSE®

One of the first things people notice about each other is their eyes. If you search for makeup and beauty tips, a majority of the information and YouTube tutorials will be about how to enhance the natural look of your eyelashes. How to achieve the perfect cat-eye, the right clump-free mascara, or which eyeshadow is best for your complexion, there are endless pages on how to make your eyes stand out. When women search for makeup tips, many of them just want to know how to get fuller, longer, and darker eyelashes. If you struggle with finding the right products to enhance the color or thickness of your eyelashes, conventional makeup might not be enough.

Facts About Eyelashes

Just like our hair, eyelashes will fall out naturally over time. Eyelashes take a month to six weeks to grow back after one has fallen out. In addition, as we age, our lashes can also begin to fade and won’t grow in as thick, dark, or as long as they once had. If aging didn’t cause enough problems, there is also a medical condition called hypotrichosis, which is when people don’t have enough eyelashes. It can be caused by genetics or it can develop because of disease, nervous habits, or aging.
