    Reason #1: Because Your Lashes Need A Breather

    We’re huge fans of anything that makes our eyes appear bigger, be it eyelash extensions or faux eyelashes, but just like nails,lashes need a breather from time to time. And, just like distressed tresses, bare lashes need conditioning too. Since we’re all about DIY beauty remedies, consider whipping up a natural eyelash conditioner that calls for hydrating ingredients such as coconut oil, vitamin E, and almond oil.

    Reason #2: To Nail The “No Makeup” Look

    To pull off “no makeup” makeup, you need healthy, supple lashes. Give your lashes a vacay from stress and make them longer with a conditioning lash treatment, like SmartLash Eyelash Enhancer ($30). That way, you can confidently leave the house sans-makeup.

    Reason #3: Because Your Lashes Need The Help

    Wearing mascara (and not to mention, curling) seven days a week can leave your lashes in desperate need of some moisture. Plus, with toxic ingredients lurking in makeup, your lashes can be left looking brittle and frail. But a hydrating treatment, like Urban Decay’s Lush Lash System ($42), makes the future look bright. The two-step system includes a serum that stimulates keratin—plus, it contains growth peptides and vitamin E for velvety smooth lashes.
