How to Get Longer, Thicker, Healthier Lashes!


Hey!

It has been a long long time since I’ve made a video or a blog post!

As most of you know, I’m getting married! Little did I know that it would be happening sooner than I thought.. in October! So I’ve been scrambling trying to plan the wedding and organize things, dress shopping, colors, center pieces, dj’s etc etc. I haveta admit, the cake tasting is the best part! ha ha ha! So thats the reason why I’ve been away for so long! I’m gonna try my best to update my blog and my channel as much as I can, and maybe film my journey of wedding planning! Would you guys be interested in seeing something like that?

Anyone wanna plan my wedding for me? .. Ill jus do the cake tasting! muuahaha

Anyways, let me get back to what this blog post is really about! LASHES!

I always get asked, how are your lashes so long? How do you keep them thick? How do you keep them healthy and keep them from falling out? Well..I was blessed with long lashes, BUT I also have a trick that my mom taught me when I was younger to maintain them, keep em healthy, long and strong! … VASELINE! aka Petroleum Jelly!

At night, before I go to bed, I take some Vaseline and I rub it at the base of my lashline, as well as on my lashes and lower lashes. For some extra goodness, it’s good to apply some in the outer corners of your eyes as well (As we age, we start to get crows feet there, and vaseline is a great way to keep the skin soft and moisturized, and in the long run, prevent nasty crows feet!)

I also like to take whats left over and go around the orbital bone to keep my eye area nice and moisturized.. trust me.. vaseline is way better than those really expensive eye creams that we spend so much money on.

Also, if you feel like you’ve over plucked your eyebrows and want them to grow in, rub the extra vaseline in your eyebrow area and that’ll help stimulate the growth there as well :)

NOW YOU MAY BE WONDERING.. VASELINE? DOES IT REALLY WORK?

It depends on each individual. For some, you might see thicker, longer lashes, overnight. For others, it might take a month.. and for some it might not grow your lashes at all. HOWEVER.. even if it doesnt GROW your lashes, itll keep them healthy, strong and moisturized.. so its a win, win!

All these lash growth serums that are on the market and jam packed with chemicals and nutrients to moisturize your lashes anyways, so why spend so much money on those when Vaseline provides the same moisture and care?

Try it out for yourself! I can honestly say that I have been using this trick since I was a kid and I will NEVER stop! I notice a lot less fallout of my lashes as well!

PS. Try not to get it in your eyes.. You will blur ur vision and it gets annoying!

ENJOY!

    • Moni says

      Does it really have to be Vaseline??????? I mean.. I don’t have it at home at the moment. And we just went shopping. But I really really wanna try it to see if it works for me… Anybody help???? Thnx a bunch :D

      • Mataya says

        No is doesn’t have to be Vaseline. You can use castor oil, almond oil, and coconut oil. Really any oil known to grow the hair on your head. Remember, lashes are hair, too. What applies to hair, can apply to lashes, too. Hope this helps. I know I’m about 2 years later. Sorry.

    i would really like to see a wedding planning tour! im a bit interested in it right now aswell lol what is your fiance’s name? i’ll try the Vaseline tonight and we’ll see what happens! tahnks for sharing!

    • FARAH says

      wedding planning is insane!! ill try and film some bits and pieces here and there especially of the parties so it feels like you’re all with me! :D

    I actually use vaseline as an eye make up remover. It’s inexpensive, gentle, and it works better than most commercial eye make up removers – at least, it does for me. But I’ve never tried any of this! I’ve put vaseline on the ends of my eyelashes to catch the light and make them appear longer, and I’ve used it on my brows. I’ll have to add this to my beauty regimen. (:

    Thanks once again Farah!

  4. aakanksha says

    HEY Farah…thanks for the amazing trick.i have long lashes on upper eyelid but not on lower eyelid..i hav tried ur trick n guess wat it worked..i can c the diffrence in jst 2 days…jst loved it..thanks again..love u…god bless u…

  5. Palona says

    Hi, I love your lashes and will use this trick, soon enough ( i have to buy vaseline first :Đ )
    but still, I was wondering, how often do you do this, every night, every week ..? :) Thanks!

  6. says

    Hey Farah, sweet tip! :) I always use olive oil to remove my make up (works awesome) and I wonder if that can have the same effect as the vaseline? I like to use natural products :)
    Btw, I tried your turmeric mask yesterday, and I can already feel a change on my skin, thank you! :D

    Hi Farah!

    Today is the first time that I have come upon you & your tutorials…they are great. I’m writing to you because about 5 hours ago, I watched the tutorial on growing your eyelashes. I took an hour long bath @ 6:47, then did what you suggested on your video….it’s now 11:34 & my lashes have grown! I am not kidding around, it’s a little freaky…btw only my right side eyelashes are growing @ this fast rate…this is crazy! Thank you so much, and please continue to be “naturally informative” it is appreciated. Be Blessed.

THANKS A LOT U DOING A GREAT JOB .

    I think it’s amazing that you’re a makeup artist, because you’re so naturally gorgeous without makeup.

  15. Mrs. Khan says

    Aww Mubarak on your shaadi! I do not personally know you but from your videos you appear to be a wonderful person, May GOD shower you with lots of his blessings, love, guidance, and happiness.. and of course bless you with a wonderful marriage and a successful life. I must say you ARE changing peoples lives with your natural ingredients, in my opinion that is. IAlso to answer your answer YES! do film your wedding journey, I would love to see how it goes :). But I do have a question, I am 21 years old.. Would the vaseline still have any effect on me? Would it still work? Will I see any improvement?

  16. ucii fidela says

    Please check into Un-petroleum products!!! vasaline/petroleum jelly can be harmful to your health. Gasoline is derived from Petroleum Jelly. Gasoline is just the liquid form!!! I know it may not seem like it, so please do research !!!!!! Alba has an Un-petroleum jelly that we all can use and accomplish what Farah has so kindly shared with us. No need to make any unnecessary burdens on ourselves with putting poison on our skin. people are sick enough and we dont need to visit the hospital more than whats necessary!!! Take care and educated yourselves with what little information we do have available about whats in what. :)

  19. delCarmen13 says

    Farah, I just recently discovered you. And wow, my world has changed! Love all you’re about and do for us ladies and beauty. It’s been a week now that I’ve doing this vaseline application and sadly (which I was worried about once I started doing this) I got a STYE! it hurts so bad :(

    I’m wondering, have you had this happen to you better, and if so how have you prevented it from happening again or is it just something that might time and time again happen? Anything else that could moisturize and got give styes?

    Thank yo u for your time!

    much love and hugs from MN,

  21. Crystal says

    Woooooow! I’ve never seen such long natural eyelashes before (*^*)… i envy you > <
    Like how many mm are they? they look like they're at least 20 mm/2 cm
    Did you have short lashes before you started applying vasaline, and then saw much improvement later on? or did you already have really long eyelashes when you first applied it, and then noticed that you just had less lash fallout?

  22. Hajera says

    Hey girl just wanted to say which one you think is the best product to put on your eyelashes and make them grow more. is it petroleum jelly or castor oil ?

  24. Najeeba says

    Hey Farah!! :-) omw! I just found your blog and I’m in LOVE with it.. <3 . I've learned so so much thank you for sharing all your secrets with us.. I have an insane question that's kind of a problem for about 7 years now :-((.. I have these kinda pimple under my arms.. I wax and shave and sometimes just trim but its never went away.. Its like ingrown hair, but its left marks with it that I hate! I'm extremely conscious about it, so I don't pick my arms up, nor do I wear anything sleeveless or cap sleeve either.. Its ruining my life :-(. Please help me.

    • Vanessa says

      najeeba, more than likely you’re sensitive/allergic to antiperspirant deodorants. try using a deordorant without aluminum…that’s what usual cause abnormal lumps and darker skin in under the armpits.
      aluminum is a neurotoxin is not meant to be absorbed by the body. you can try going to a health food store and buy one or go hunting for a DIY recipe that fits you. i use 1 part baking soda 1 part cornstarch with a few drops of tea tree oil.
      plus you should exfoliate with a body scrub, it will help alot.

    Hi. Is vaseline good for acne prone skin? I heard on The Doctors that you need to be careful with it especially if you apply it on your lips.

  27. AMA says

    Hi Farah. I just wanted to say that u r soo pretty. And I also wanted to ask how long do u use it for. And how many times. And ur realllly pretty.

  28. Rhea says

    Hi Farah,

    I am so greatful to say thank you to your wonderful tips regarding vaseline. It really works to my eyelashes, it was a week only i noticed already the difference from lenght before and after i’ve been used the vaseline. It really works. Thanks a lot and God bless you!

  29. Claudia says

    I tried this and although it did not make my eyelashes grow that much, it definitely made them thick and strong like Farah said. Thank you, Farah, I really dont say this often, but I really like your videos. You are very sweet and you give off really good energy. Keep posting videos, I’ve tried other remedies that you have posted and they really work.

  30. nancy says

    Hey just wanted to tell you I have used every remedy on your list and now im addicted to your channel and whole foods lol Thank you its changed my skin completely!!!!

  31. anonymous says

    I tried using Vaseline on my lashes and my eyes became very itchy. I would be cautious about this but if it works for you use it. :) try vitamin e oil or almond oil works amazing. Vaseline does work for many though. however Vaseline is like waterproof so it is hard to wash off if it gets in your eyes and vaseline has a warning in the back that says don’t put near eyes. Be careful.
