The majority of women have heard of the benefits of using an eyelash curler, but have been too nervous to give it a try. This little beauty tool might look like a torture device, but if used correctly, it doesn’t put you in any danger whatsoever! It puts a curl and a lift in your top lashes, which in turn opens your eyes and makes you look wide awake. It’s also the perfect tool for anyone who doesn’t like wearing a lot of make-up, as it makes a significant difference to your look without requiring much time or effort.
Follow these simple steps and put your fears of the eyelash curler behind you!
Make sure your lashes are clean (this means no mascara or eyelash gel / serum) and completely dry. Open your eyelash curler and position it so that your upper lashes fit in between the two sides of the curler. Be sure to keep both your eyes open while doing this.
Bring the curler as close as possible to your lash line, but be careful not to pinch your eyelid! Gently clamp down so that the opening closes and your lashes are tucked in firmly.
Hold it down for ten seconds. If you want extra volume, you can repeat the process.
It’s easier to start at the inner corner of your eye and move outwards.
A deep black mascara will show off the effects of the curler the best.
