A Lil’ Beauty DIY: Bat For Lashes

I can’t think of one girl I know who doesn’t want longer lashes! I mean, who wouldn’t? Long lashes = sexy, flirty, and make your eyes POP! My friends and I have literally tried it all from Latisse to lash extensions… with some definite success. HOWEVER, these methods aren’t exactly budget-friendly and can be super time consuming. Not to mention some not-so-pleasant side effects.

As always… if there is a natural alternative, that is definitely my preference! Sooooo, when I happened upon a little 3 ingredient recipe for DIY lash serum I was allllll over it!! Luckily, I’m a bit of an oil-hoarder… so I already had all of the ingreds. I immediately whipped up a batch and have been hooked ever since.

I wanted to give it a solid month before I gave you all the low-down. So, here it is… My lashes are longer, thicker, and honestly I feel like they are darker too! I used to NEVER leave the house without a couple coats of mascara, but now… no need! Don’t get me wrong, I still totally layer on the mascara for a night out… but on a day to day basis I no longer find it necessary.

Another bonus? My whole eye area just feels younger and healthier due to the oils. I have also been using this little concoction on my brows and they have filled in A LOT!!

I haven’t noticed any negative effects whatsoever. The only thing I will say is that I recommend applying this right before bed each night as the oil can get a little runny. **Sidenote: if your mixture hardens as coconut oil tends to do… just run under warm water until you reach the desired consistency.

So… what are your fave DIY at-home beauty remedies?!?
