Thanks to the new and improved lash serums on the market today, that’s not just a pipe dream. We run through our favourite lash-lengthening serums.

Hi Brow Growth & Conditioning Serum for Lashes and Brows is a great multitasker which, as the name suggests, can be used on eyebrows as well as lashes if you want that Cara Delevingne look. Featuring a mascara wand applicator, it’s easy to use and is formulated with keratin and caffeine, which help enhance and stimulate healthy hair growth. For luscious lashes apply before bed as an overnight beauty treatment.

Or give XXtralash a try; a powerful and clinically proven nutrient rich eyelash serum that bestows long, luscious and natural lashes. It’s formulated with vitamins, botanical extracts and Prob-Biozyme TriPeptides that enrich eyelashes and enhance their appearance, as well as keeping them in optimum health. Suitable for all skin types, the gel serum is fragrance free and works by being brushed onto the base of the eyelashes at night. In just four weeks, 100 per cent of users reported having the appearance of thicker, fuller, longer and darker lashes.

If you want something slightly stronger, then Viva Skin Clinics’ Eyelash Serum is a good way to go. Dr Rupert Critchley provides the “prescription only” serum, which has a higher percentage ingredient content than some of the high street alternatives.

Dr Rupert explained: “We all have our feel-good essentials and mascara is classed as a must-have for many women – some refuse to even leave the house without it! With an eyelash serum that really helps to boost lashes in length and condition, like Viva Lash, you really don’t have to worry – without any make up at all you will have knock-out eyes. Plus, when people compliment you on your lashes, you have the chance to say, ‘yes, they are actually all mine’. The results we’ve seen have been truly astonishing, it’s been a real hit with brides and those wanting to look amazing for a big event.”

It’s also incredibly popular with older woman, with Dr Rupert adding the product works well on women who have lost or have thinned eyelashes due to ageing.
