Ever wonder how some women get such long, beautiful eyelashes? Long lashes brighten their eyes and complement their makeup. Even if you were born with short, sparse eyelashes, you can create a similar effect by using makeup and mascara that can make your eyes appear to be bigger and wider.

Eyeshadow-Once you apply your makeup, add a champagne or pearl irridecent eyeshadow like Laura Mercier's Caviar Eye Stick that will make your eyes appear to be brighter.

Mascara- Add a lengthening mascara like L'Oreal Definicils to your eyes. Start by putting the mascara wand with where the roots of your eyelashes and wiggle the wand outward to the tip of your eyelashes. Repeat this about \2-3 times.

Eyeliner-Many women add an eyeliner to enhance the lash area. You can try a black irridecent eyeliner, or even a white eyeliner over the eye for the full effect of long lashes.
