Remember when you were young, eyeing all of those “when you’re older” products in the beauty aisle? That tweezer! Those $1 eyelash curlers and colored mascaras! But why?? To perhaps permanently alter an integral part of our face at such a young, impressionable, irresponsible age was a crime some of us are still paying for.
Perhaps you were a Teenage Tweezer who couldn’t wait to attack that unibrow and those strays, or a Lazy Remover, sleeping in waterproof mascara that wreaked havoc on your lashes over time. Let’s be honest - who hasn’t over-plucked at one point? Or maybe you were extra unlucky, your teenage years coinciding with the era of pencil-thin brows. We feel for you.
While we can’t turn back time, we can bring back brows and lashes. Yes, really! Follow these easy steps and you’ll soon have regrown the virgin brows and plentiful eyelashes you haven’t seen in years:
1. Toss the Tweezer
The experts we know and love recommend leaving brows be for at least two months before reshaping whatsoever. So yes, toss the tweezer, or at least set it aside. Not even that one annoying hair that seems way off-course. Let them be!
Prep for maximum growth and healthy follicles with our Pure Marula Oil. Just apply a few drops in your palm, then use your fingertips to massage all over your face. With high oleic acid content, this super-oil penetrates deeper than any other, sealing in moisture and repairing past damage. For lashes, swipe on the Multi-Tasking Primer each night for extra conditioning while you sleep. We also recommend getting 64 ounces of water in per day, to hydrate from inside-out.

3. A Little Boost
Enter our signature vegaBROW Volumizing Serum and vegaLASH Volumizing Serum. There’s a reason this is the fastest-growing brow and lash line in the world! It’s time to adopt our easy routine for brows and lashes: just swipe along the brow line and lash line once in the morning and once in the evening and you should see visible growth around 30 days! You can feel good using these products every day, knowing they are completely safe - plant-based, hormone-free, and toxin-free.
4. Use a Lash Primer
Makeup primers are designed to smooth out your skin’s surface and make your makeup last longer. But primers are not just for your foundation. Just like makeup primers, lash primers are designed to coat your natural lashes, allowing your mascara to glide smoother and making your lashes appear thicker and fuller. They also keep your mascara from flaking and smudging, even in humid conditions. Some primers also boast nourishing ingredients that make your lashes stronger and prevent them from falling out, so keep an eye out for those!
5. Don’t Just Use ANY Mascara
Mascara’s are great for accentuating your eyes and making them appear bigger and more awake, but not all mascaras are created equal. The best ones out there have short, comb-like bristles and highly pigmented formulas that add lash-lengthening nutrients. To apply, glide your mascara evenly on freshly curled lashes from root to tip—and don’t wiggle!
4. Extra Pop
Next, it’s time to take those lashes to the next level. Start by priming your lashes with our vegaLASH Multi-Tasking Primer to add extra lift and curl, while extending wear of our vegaLASH Volumizing Mascara and ensuring a truly smudge-proof application. This super-pigmented formula will lift and curl your lashes while continuing to infuse your lashes with our signature serum for continued growth.

5. Take Vitamins—for Your Lashes
For something that’s more long term, elevate your daily lash regimen with a volumizing lash serum. Just as you would use a serum for your face, you can use a serum on your eyelash to ensure you are nourishing and stimulating your hair follicles to encourage growth, as well as strengthening the lash strands to prevent breakage and fallout.
6. Take Care
Committing to your new lash and brow routines takes a little effort. Set aside a few minutes each day to ensure you stay on plan. But the pampering doesn’t stop there! We love a satin or organic bamboo cotton pillowcase for skin and hair, and always use a gentle, oil-free makeup remover to further nourish and protect.

If there’s one thing that can make you look like a million bucks almost instantly, it’s having long, lush and perfectly curled eyelashes. Unfortunately for some, this isn’t always easy to achieve. The good news: there are a few tried-and-true ways tomake your eyelashes appear longer and fuller—and it doesn’t involve eyelash extensions that can make your lashes fall out in the long run!
As these three lash-enhancing products need to be applied every day to achieve faster and consistent results, make sure the formulas you use don’t contain potentially harmful ingredients that could irritate your eyes, or hormones that could cause long-term side effects.
