Quoth the wiki:

It is often commented that Carbonell's eyelashes appear rather dark, as if one had applied too much eyeliner or mascara. Interviews with both Carbonell and the producers of Lost have stated that his eyes are one of his physical traits, and completely unaided by any form of makeup. A short skit during the Lost panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2009 featured Carbonell allegedly applying eyeliner before throwing a Christian Bale-esque rant upon receiving the wrong color makeup from an assistant

In the DVD version, in season 4 or 5, there's a bonus feature where Nestor Carbonell, the actor who plays Richard, specifically addresses the eye mystery, and showed that in fact he didn't where makeup, except occasionally when they wanted to make his eyelashes less dark

He's always had them. He was in Suddenly Susan and I seem to remember they made some jokes about his eyelashes in that series.
