Does an eyelash trim make your lashes appear fuller?
Yes it does!
I actually ran into this by accident, I trimmed my eyelashes and then noticed they appeared fuller and neater after the trimming.
"What made you trim your eye lashes?" most will ask, well here is why I did it.
I was running into problem with my eyelashes rubbing on my sun glasses each time I blinked, I kept having to adjust my sunglasses, but then the glasses felt too far from my eyes, so did not seem natural to keep having to move them away from my eyes.
My eyelashes are not that long to begin with, it was probably just the style of the sunglasses I was wearing, but I really liked those sunglasses... so started to think, "What if I trim my eyelashes just a little bit?" I got home that one day, removed my mascara, analyzed the situation and decided to move forward with trimming my lashes just a little bit. I know, you are probably wondering, "Why not just ditch the mascara?" after all, mascara does elongate lashes- well, here is the answer to that, when I take my sunglasses off, I do want the mascara to show, and besides I love mascara! It doesn't just add length, adds definition, brings out the eye-shadow and other eye makeup and lot's of other reasons.
After the trimming
It was just like when I get a haircut to remove the damaged ends and my hair appears healthier and fuller, the same happened with my lashes and the mascara looks even neater after a trim and in my opinion, my lashes look fuller.
I trim them regularly now, whenever I notice the ends need a trim.
I used the same make-up in both of the following before and after pictures to make it as accurate as possible, only difference is the trimming.

Tips and Tricks
I do not recommend you do this if you do not have a steady hand or do not feel confident enough to trim only the very ends.
Please trim at your own risk or have someone help you with the trimming.
