Ever since the days of ancient Egypt men and women have utilized different cosmetic enhancements to improve the appearance of their lashes. In those days people turned to substances such as soot to accentuate their lashes, and the bolder lashes were viewed as a sign of beauty. Luckily time has evolved cosmetic formulas, but the desire for longer and thicker lashes has remained the same.
If you examined the beauty routines of people from all over the world you’d find that millions strive to make their lashes more noticeable, and they often choose mascara to achieve this goal. Mascara is somewhat of an inexpensive way to make your lashes look more beautiful, but the formulas often affect negatively the health of the real lashes.
