  1. 1

    Dip a clean mascara brush into a tablespoon of olive oil.

  2. 2

    Tap the excess oil from the brush onto a paper towel. This will prevent oil from seeping into your eye.

  3. 3

    Place the mascara brush at the base of the top eyelashes and apply the oil by using a gentle sawing motion. Reapply the oil to the brush and repeat the step on the other top lash.

  4. 4

    Apply the oil to the bottom lashes by touching the tip of the wand to your lashes.

Tips and warnings

  • You can substitute the olive oil with castor oil.
  • Another method for darkening lashes is to dab petroleum jelly on your fingers and rub it lightly on your eyelashes.
  • Do not get oils or petroleum jelly in your eyes.
