"Why should I care about my Eyelashes?"
Eyelashes serve two purposes in your Eye area.
1. They help disguise upper eyelid exposure
2. They make your face more expressive
"Won't I look like a chick?"
I'll cite the picture above, along with a metric fuck ton of male models. The reason why you associate them with girls is because of the heavy duty makeup they use to make their lashes look dark and thick. You won't be doing that, so you'll look nothing like them.
"How can I improve them?"
-Castor Oil is one of the most well known treatments for short/thin Eyelashes
-Avoid excessively rubbing your eyes whenever possible
-Drinking plenty of water (1 gal/day) has been shown to improve hair quality
-Eyebrow Growth Serum appears to have many of the ingredients that Castor Oil does, at a much higher cost. Use as a last resort
-Latisse (brand name, actual ingredient is known as Bimatoprost) has been shown to increase Eyelash growth. It's not purchasable in the US without a prescription, so you can either do your homework and purchase it illegally, or live in a country that doesn't regulate it.
