      Guessing you are losing eyelash, correct?
      A couple of different ways...
      1) use fake eyelashes - sophara has fairly good selection and can order on line.
      2) my friend go to MAC cosmetics (I heard Nordstrom has one) to get that professionally done, so you can have them on for 3 weeks. I want to try this myself, just need to find time...

      For eye brow, I found an excellent sealer, so it can stay in place until I get back home! Let me know if you want to know the brand.
      Good luck!

      Thank you so much for your help. Do you know of anything I can use for lower lid lashes? I lost them all due to radiation treatment. Thank you.

      You can purchase them at Amazon, type in "lower False Eyelash". I like KOJI, it comes with many fun and cute styles. Since this is one more annoying thing we have to deal with, I decided to make it fun as much as I can.
      You can use the upper one, and cut it up or bend in a way. Some people use the individual one - more control, but it can be time-consuming.
      I am spending huge amount of time @ bathroom - just to get things in control, or, to transform myself from monk (or alien!) to a human.
      hang in there gal.

      I lost all my eyelashes chemo. Using eyeliner helped, also latisse really helped. I could not get the hang of false eyelashes. Good luck to you

      I lost my eyelashes during chemo but didn't realize it until I literally went to put on my mascara...my husband said they've been gone for about a week! So clearly I'm not usually a makeup person and I wear glasses. I did nothing! I did by brow powder from Bare Escentuals to fill in my eyebrow loss. Good luck!

      I also used eyeliner. You can stop in an eyebrow threading place and see if anyone would be willing to do semi permanent henna tattoo eyeliner. I actually tried that when I lost my eyebrows and it was only somewhat successful but I've met some people who think I just got the wrong person to do it.

      Thank you all - I feel better knowing there are options out there in case my eyelashes never grow back (which they don't seem to be)

      Good thing is, when they grow back in, it is really fast. All of a sudden they are back, and sometimes thicker than they were. But then about 4 months later, they fell out again, but then grew back in a couple weeks. I didn't realize they'd fall out a second time 6 months after chemo. But since they are so little, they came in fast. Never know we depend on something so little until it is gone! Hang in there. Wear bright lipstick and bright fingernail polish as a distraction!

      I bought some false ones but never used them...I am told I have gorgeous eyes, they are bright green and that most people don't even notice the lack of lashes as my eyes stand out more...but what do they know...lol
      I use eye shadow as a liner, it's softer and I do a full face of make up most days. I draw on brows and I wear wigs like my hair was, full and around my face.
      I thought it would be so terrible but like everything, you just get through it. Mine are growing in and I am just using my mascara like crazy! haha but may have to do chemo again and there they go...but live goes on...

      There are a few things that you can do to help your eyelashes grow longer and fuller. We tend to forget that eyelashes are hair and like the hair on your head you need to take care of them.

      Some things to consider are changing your diet, reducing stress and using an eyebrow enhancer that will help you lot. https://www.thebeautyinsiders.com/eyelash-enhancers
