Although eyelashes provide a barrier function, keeping out dust and debris, most women feel they serve a greater purpose. And we agree. Adding definition to the eye and camouflaging the signs of aging, long, voluminous lashes are the ultimate sign of femininity. Time causes the lashes to appear thin and short, but you can make a statement with lust-worthy lash treatments, tools and techniques.

Just ask celebrity makeup artist Taylor Chang-Babaian, who shares her secrets for awe-inspiring, eye-enhancing lashes in her book Style Eyes (dedicated entirely to eye makeup!). For a voluminous gamine look, she recommends applying black cream eyeliner along the lower lashline and white pencil eyeliner in the lower rim of the eye. For the extra pop seen in the bottom-left photo, apply chunks of long individual eyelashes along the lower lashline after applying your mascara.

Eyelash Extensions

A celebrity favorite, lash extensions are a good option for instantly thicker and longer lashes for an extended period of time. And if you want to shave off time from your daily routine, yet achieve natural-looking lashes with more curve and darkness than what mascara provides, NovaLash Curly Curl lashes in .25 thickness and varying lengths are perfect for a natural, voluminous look.

Mink Eyelashes

Goddess Signature Mink Lash Strips ($170) are made from 100 percent Siberian mink and provide serious length, volume and luxury. The lightweight, hypo-allergenic and easy-to-apply strips are also available with golden studs—you know, if you're feeling extra fancy.

Growth Enhancers

For women dissatisfied with their length, thickness or darkness of their eyelashes, RevitaLash Advanced ($98), an eyelash growth stimulator, is a beauty blogger favorite.

The Eye Popper

Dramatic, jet-black lashes are easily attained with Trish McEvoy Lash Thickening Mascara ($31). The hourglass brush separates and lifts as the buildable formula thickens lashes while resisting clumping, smudging and flaking all day long.

The Ultimate Makeup Remover

In one swipe Kate Somerville True Lash Lash Enhancing Eye Makeup Remover ($35) gently removes eye makeup, reduces the appearance of puffiness and fine lines, and also works to strengthen and promote more voluminous, healthy lashes.

Eco-Friendly Falsies

Housed within this Winks by Georgie L’Avant-Gardiste Lash Compact ($28) lies a botanically-infused adhesive and reusable, easy-to-apply false lashes for instant glamour.

The Foolproof Applicator

Applying false lashes has never been easier with this professional tool. The curved tip of the Kre-At Beauty Lash Applicator Tool ($42) helps provide perfect placement of your favorite false lashes and the velvet case allows for safekeeping.

    Latisse is the only FDA approved medication for the treatment of hypotrichosis (thinning lashes.) I prescribe it for my patients seeking longer, thicker and darker lashes, particularly those who have recently undergone blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery.) Latisse is applied topically at night before bedtime and the full benefits of treatment are observed after 16 weeks of use. Patients overwhelmingly like the product and I find it enhances their surgical results.

    I've been using eye products from Measurable Difference for some time now, and I've definitely seen a lot of improvement. I would recommend to anyone their products, after a couple uses your eyelashes really do feel a lot healthier and softer, which of course is the base of a good look.
