Eyelashes can be a key feature to enhance your eyes and overall appearance, regardless of age. However, as we age, eyelashes may become thinner or more brittle. Here are some tips for mature women to maintain and enhance your eyelashes to ensure they are looking fabulous... or should I say fabulash!

Moisturise and Condition

Use a lash conditioner or a gentle, hydrating eyelash serum to keep your lashes healthy. These products can help prevent breakage and promote lash growth, and some can even be used underneath your mascara as a primer to help create some volume such as the Jane Iredale Pure Lash Extender and Conditioner. Simply layer on a thin coat. Don't let it dry completely before applying your mascara. It should still be tacky. One coat of mascara afterwards should be enough for lash perfection!

Gentle Makeup Removal

Be gentle when removing eye makeup to avoid damaging your lashes. Use a mild, oil-based makeup remover, and soak a cotton pad on your eyelids for a few seconds to dissolve the mascara and eyeliner before gently wiping it away. You can either use a specific eye makeup remover, or a gentle cleansing balm on the eyes first before cleansing the rest of your face. We love the Tribe Gentle Cleansing Balm. Made with all-natural ingredients, this balm cleanser effortlessly removes makeup and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils, and is gentle enough to be used on the eyes.


Choose a mascara that provides both length and volume without clumping. Many mascaras are available that are specifically designed for mature lashes. Look for ones with nourishing ingredients like biotin or keratin to give your lashes a little extra love throughout the day. Choosing a mineral mascara is a great option for even the most sensitive eyes. Inika Organic has a wide selection of mascaras to choose from depending if you are looking for length, volume or even a little curl. The Inika Purity Lash Mascara is a length-enhancing mascara that is gentle on even the most sensitive eyes making it ideal for contact lense wearers. 

Curl Your Lashes

Using an eyelash curler can make your lashes appear longer and more lifted. Just be sure to use it carefully, and before you apply your mascara to avoid any damage to your lashes.

Eyelash Extensions

Eyelash extensions can be a good option if you want a semi-permanent solution for longer and thicker lashes. They can last several weeks, and you can customize the length and volume.

Lash Lift

A lash lift is a semi-permanent treatment that curls your natural lashes, providing a lifted and more open-eyed look. It's a good option if you don't want to use an eyelash curler daily.

Avoid Overusing Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara can be harsh on lashes. Use it sparingly and opt for a non-waterproof mascara most of the time. If using a waterproof mascara be sure to take extra care when removing it, as leaving this on the lashes can lead to breakage.

Protect Your Lashes

Be cautious when applying or removing false lashes, and don't pull on your lashes. Also, avoid rubbing your eyes to prevent damage.

Use a lash growth serum

This is a great way to encourage your lashes to be the best that they can be! We love the CanGro Long Lashes Eyelash Enhancer. This eyelash serum contains vitamins, peptides and antioxidants that help to stimulate growth, strengthen and condition the eyelashes. Just apply the product to your upper lash line (where the roots of your lashes meet your eyelid) once a day and allow it to seep into your lash follicles. It really is that simple!

Remember, everyone's lashes are unique, and it may take some experimentation to find the best products and techniques that work for you. Patience and consistent care are essential for maintaining and enhancing your eyelashes, regardless of your age.
