I highly recommend a conditioning mascara with almond oil. It's a little hard to come but absolutely worth it.
Using almond oil in eye makeup is actually a very old tradition. Most of the traditional Middle Eastern and Asian eye make up called "kajal" is made using almond oil. It is a mixture of ash and almond oil. It is made into a paste.
Almond oil is great for eyelashes. It promotes eyelash growth and it's safe to use around the eye. For the same reason, a conditioning mascara with almond oil is also beneficial. I even use almond oil as an eye makeup remover. It works even better than expensive store makeup removers.
