Is mascara cancelled for 2024? Celebrities like Maya Jama, Kylie Jenner and Molly-Mae Hague are certainly proving that we're collectively entering more of a natural lash era – aka the 'naked lash' era, as TikTok has dubbed it. It's good news for anyone with naturally dark and defined lashes, but not such great news for those of us who have sparse or straight eyelashes.

It's also not ideal for anyone who is weaning themselves off false or semi-permanent lashes, and who may be experiencing some level of damage after long-term wear. So what's the solution? Get involved in the trend and ditch your heavy eye make-up by investing in a good lash growth serum.

The problem is that lash serums have had a bit of backlash as of late, with some users reporting the formulas as too harsh for sensitive eyes and lids, causing puffy skin and watery vision. If you've experienced this, you might want to try a formula that's specifically for sensitive eyes. OK! head of beauty Zoe, who rarely finds a serum that doesn't cause her lids to itch, recommends Revitalash's Advanced Sensitive Eyelash Conditioner, £109 here – which, she says, has proved to be a godsend for helping regrow her brittle lashes after a long-term lash extension habit.

However, if your budget doesn't stretch to £100, we have plenty of other options for you.
