Rub a bit of coconut oil around your eyes and on your lashes while in the shower. Keep it on for five minutes before rinsing off. This helps to get rid of under eye darkness and circles as well as to make lashes longer and thicker.
I like using French braids like this, in front or in back to "trap" shorter hair that won't quite make it into a puffball ponytail. My hair's still too short for a bun :( Anyway. this has totally saved me while growing my hair out. The braid.
