Learning How To Get Longer Eyelashes: What Causes Short Eyelashes?

Before we share how to get longer eyelashes at Chanel Frances, let’s talk about the cause of short and sparse eyelashes. 


Those luscious lashes you see on some lucky individuals who don’t have eyelash extensions are often a gift from their genetic makeup. If you didn’t hit the genetic jackpot in the lash department, don’t worry! We’ve got plenty of treatments to help.

Rough Makeup Routine

If you’re a fierce makeup lover, beware of the pitfalls of a rough makeup removal routine. Scrubbing your lashes aggressively (especially when wearing waterproof makeup) can lead to breakage and, you guessed it, shorter lashes. Time to treat your lashes with the TLC they deserve!

Curling Lashes After Applying Mascara

Curling your lashes after applying mascara might seem like a way to achieve extra lift, but it can damage your lashes. When you curl your lashes with a lash curler after mascara application, the lashes can stick to the curler and become pulled out, leading to shorter lashes over time. It’s recommended to curl your lashes before applying mascara or use a heated lash curler to minimize potential damage.

Store Bought False Lashes

While store-bought false lashes can instantly create the appearance of long lashes, improper application and removal can weaken your natural lashes (especially if they are low quality). The adhesive used to attach false lashes can cause breakage if not applied correctly or removed gently. It’s essential to follow the instructions carefully and seek professional assistance if you need clarification on applying or removing store-bought false lashes.


As we age, the natural aging process affects our lashes as well. The growth cycle of our lashes slows down, resulting in thinner and shorter lashes. Hormonal changes and a decrease in the production of proteins that contribute to lash growth can also play a role in lash thinning.

Psychological Factors

Psychological conditions like trichotillomania can cause individuals to have an irresistible urge to pull out their own hair, including eyelashes. This can result in short or sparse lash growth. Seeking professional help and implementing coping mechanisms are essential for managing trichotillomania and protecting your lashes.

Eye Disease

Certain eye conditions or infections can contribute to lash thinning and loss. Conditions like blepharitis, which is characterized by inflammation of the eyelids, can affect lash growth. Similarly, alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss, can also impact eyelash growth.

Apply An Eyelash Growth Serum

Eyelash Extensions

Lash extensions are a fantastic option if you’re exploring how to get longer eyelashes. They involve applying individual synthetic lashes onto your natural lashes, creating a stunning, customized look. Our highly skilled technicians will work with you to select the perfect length, curl, and volume for your desired outcome.

Eyelash extensions typically last between 4-6 weeks, depending on the rate of growth of your natural lashes. Touch-ups are recommended every 2-3 weeks to maintain their full and lush appearance.

Eyelash Lifting

An eyelash lift is a gentle and low-maintenance way to enhance the natural curl of your lashes. This treatment uses a specially formulated solution to curl and set your lashes, resulting in beautifully enhanced lashes. Eyelash lifting typically lasts between 4-6 weeks, depending on your individual lash growth cycle.

Eyelash Tinting

For a darker and more defined look, consider eyelash tinting. This semi-permanent dyeing process adds color to your lashes, providing a striking and polished appearance. Eyelash tinting is perfect for individuals with lighter or more transparent lashes, as it adds depth and intensity to your eyes. The results typically last for a few weeks, giving you the freedom to wake up to beautifully tinted lashes.

Eyelash Lift And Tint Combo

For the ultimate lash transformation, we offer the option of combining a lash lift and a lash tint! This combination treatment not only provides the benefits of both procedures but also offers convenience and savings. Achieve incredible-looking lashes while saving time and money with the lash lift and tint combo at Chanel Frances & Co.
