If two coats of mascara and a set of false eyelashes can't achieve the kind of fringe you'd like, maybe an eyelash transplant is the way to go.

Using a procedure similar to the hair plug treatment for men, eyelash transplants take 30 to 40 hair follicles from the back of your scalp. One by one, your doctor will sew the hairs into your eyelids. (YIKES!) Once sewn into your eyelids, the new lashes behave much like any other human hair in that the transplants need to be occasionally trimmed or curled to achieve the full sweeping look of thick lashes.

Eyelash transplants cost around $4000 an eye. A good mascara costs about $9.

You do the math.
