Get Longer Eye Lashes
Eyelash envy. It’s the realization you were born without long, lush lashes—and it usually strikes in the company of those who were (your best friend, for instance). Luckily, there are plenty of ways to condition, extend and paint your way to perfection without prescription treatments like Latisse. Scoring long, fluttery eyelashes ought to be your beauty resolution for 2010. Get longer lashes instantly by trying on false eyelashes in our virtual makeup studio.

When applied twice a day, Talika’s Eyelash Lipocils yields noticeable results in four weeks since ingredients such as lecithin and pure plant extracts stimulate growth. This transparent gel comes with a mascara-like wand and leaves lashes feeling less brittle to the touch. Note: We don’t recommend using it under your regular mascara or before curling your lashes because the moisture will inhibit them from working to their full potential.

Revitalash’s Eyelash Conditioner also promotes fuller fringe. The application is similar to liquid eyeliner, and you only need one swipe a day— a very good thing considering a small tube costs $150. A portion of all proceeds benefit breast cancer research initiatives.

False lashes are a brilliant invention that’s right up there with push-up bras and leg-lengthening stilettos—but only if you know how to apply them and make them to stay put. Two to try: Ardell DuraLash individual lashes and Vincent Longo’s La Dolce Vita Lash Tips. Both are ideal for application on the outer corners of the eye. Reusable Flutter Self-Adhesive Lashes by ModelCo eliminate the need for messy glue, as do Sugar Cosmetic’s Flirt False Lashes.

For those who have difficultly mastering false eyelash application, there’s Japonesque's Soft Touch Lash Placement Kit. A soft, anti-bacterial applicator tip, shaped like the contour of your eyelid, grips false lashes in their package and helps you apply (and remove) them effortlessly.

Many women forgo falsies for professional extensions, which are amazingly natural and fluttery-looking. You’re not supposed to pair them with mascara, nor do you need it. A trained esthetician separates your natural eyelashes and attaches a synthetic hair to each lash with a medical-grade glue. The treatment can take up to two hours and cost a couple of hundred dollars, but they’ll stay put for four weeks or so.

To create that deliberately spiky rock ‘n’ kohl look, take a creamy onyx pencil to your lash line and pile on three coats of L’Oreal’s Double Extend Mascara. It offers the same doe-eyed impact as falsies and comes with one wand for primer, and another to coat lashes in lush color. Imju Fiberwig is a best seller in Japan since it’s engineered to create perfect lashes with clump-free, micro-fine fibers. Too Faced’s Lash Injections also coat the lashes by forming undetectable tubes around them to create a fuller effect. --Stephanie Simons
