How to Curl Your Eyelashes?

If you were born with straight or limp lashes, grab an eyelash curler! This rather odd-looking beauty tool lifts lashes and opens up the eyes.

  • Apply eye shadow and eyeliner, allowing it to dry before curling your lashes. Mascara is always applied after curling the lashes to avoid lash breakage and smearing.
  • Ensure that your lashes are clean and dry.
  • Open the curler and place your upper lashes inside its mouth. Close your eye slightly, then open it; all of the lashes should move into the curler's mouth. Always hold the eyelash curler so that the mouth is parallel to your lashes.
  • Move the curler closer to the eye until the tool comes to the base of the lashes, but not over the skin of the eyelid.
  • Keep the eye open and slowly close the curler. Your eyelashes should fan out evenly across the upper bar. If at any time you feel pinching, readjust the curler.
  • Hold the closed curler for a slow count of five, keeping your hand and face steady. Repeat for additional volume.

Repeat with the other eye.

Tips:

  • Practice. This beauty enhancer takes a little getting used to.
  • Clean any eye makeup off of the curler regularly and replace the curler pad every few months.

Warnings:

Never pull the curler away from your face when it's clamped onto your lashes, as this may pull your lashes out of your lid.
