The Eyelash Curler.
If you don’t have one, get one. The curler pictured above ($16 Sephora) has the pleasure of hugging my lashes every day.
Here are a few tips to get the best results:
1. Curl right after your mascara dries a bit. Too soon and you’ll take too much mascara off, too late and they won’t hold a curl.
2. Curl in two places, first close to the base of your lashes for length and then in the middle of your lashes for curl. Hold firmly for 20 seconds each. Too tight and you’ll see a kink, too loose and you won’t maintain the curl.
3. Same concept as curling your hair, heat helps set the curl. Use your hair dryer to heat the (metal) curler for a few seconds. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF. Test with your hand and start with lower tempts until you get the hang of it. We’re talking about a sensitive area here, so this can be tricky until you get used to it, but the results are the difference between night and day. *If you don’t have a hair dryer, you can also run the curler under hot water and dry before using.
