Most natural redheads understand the battle with having very light eyelashes, sometimes almost white. While they are beautiful, finding products to enhance your natural lashes can truly define the eye and make your red hair pop even more. Eyelash extensions are a great way to give your lashes length and volume but can be costly and require a lot of upkeep. That’s where eyelash serums come into play.
Eyelash serums enhance your natural lashes over time with very little effort. Most serums require a quick application before bed. Be patient, as some serums take weeks, even months, to notice a difference in length and volume. It’s also important to check the ingredients in each serum since the product will be applied right near your lash line, close to your eye.

2. RevitaLash ADVANCED Eyelash Conditioner, $98
Created by a doctor, RevitaLash was developed to help his wife reclaim the appearance of her once lush lashes that had become brittle and sparse after she endured chemotherapy to treat breast cancer. This resulted in the formulation of an eyelash conditioner that claims to regain the look of long and full lashes. The makers of RevitaLash claim that a once-daily application of the eyelash conditioner will help to provide its users with eyelashes that appear longer, fuller, and thicker in as little as 3 weeks. This product is available without a prescription and though not considered as effective as Latisse, it keeps lashes healthy and moisturized which certainly helps in healthy growth.
Much the way that Botox was found to work for wrinkles, the same story is true for Latisse. Botox was discovered by an eye doctor treating patients for eye tics. The doctor noticed not only did Botox stop the twitching, but the patients also had fewer wrinkles around their eyes. The active ingredient in Latisse was originally used to treat glaucoma patients. Just as with Botox, ophthalmologists just happened to notice that when their patients started using this medication like eye drops that their glaucoma got better and their eyelashes grew longer, darker, and fuller– talk about a lucky side effect! Now, Latisse is available by prescription from a doctor and considered the “gold standard” in eyelash enhancement with fantastic results in darkening and lengthening!
*Prices vary regionally, but the average cost of a 30-day supply is between $120 and $140

They advise finishing the entire tube (3-month supply) to see full results. It is ophthalmologist-tested and approved, and cruelty-free.
