Many women desire long eyelashes, but are not blessed with them, leaving mascara companies to reap the rewards. However, it doesn't stop there. Following behind the tubes of globby mascara, are containers of mascara removers, eyelash curlers and brushes. Women have tried the popular tactic of using a blow dryer on the eyelash curler before curling the eyelashes, dreaming of longer lasting curled lashes. After all of the years of tubes, containers and curlers, eyelashes around the world are still falling out and falling short of women's expectations. The lashes need to receive healthy conditioning.

    Pour a dab of Vitamin E into a clean, small bowl. If you have capsules instead of oil, place a capsule in a bowl and use the end of a spoon to crush or crack the capsule open. Press with the spoon to squeeze the oil out into the bowl. Trying not to touch the oil with your fingertip, remove the shell of the capsule and discard.

    Dab a cotton swab in the oil. Sweep the swab across the eyelashes, as if you were applying mascara. Begin at the root and sweep to the tip. Cover both sides of the eyelashes. Apply in the morning and the evening. Conditioning will promote softer, thicker, healthier lashes. Growth may be promoted in as little as two weeks.
