Eyelash Curling for Beginners.

Curling lashes is the best way to open up your eyes and emphasise them. Curling your lashes with an eyelash curler makes your eyes look wider, brighter and longer and doesn't make your lashes look fake.

The lash curler must be positioned very gently on the tip lashes and the movement may be repeated until you achieve the desired look. One important thing that many women forgot is that mascara should always be applied after the lashes are curled otherwise you can seriously cause damage. There are three types of eyelash curlers, metal curler, plastic curler and heated eyelash curler. They all are available in every drugstore and cosmetic section.

Step One Clean the eyelash curler An eyelashes curler should always be cleaned and disinfected before use because any dirt may easily enter the eye and cause irritation.

Step Two Heat the curler If you heat the eyelash curler it will be easier for you to curl your lashes and your lashes will stay curl longer – until the next day. You can heat the curler by two ways – using a hair dryer or with hot water. Blow air on the curler for about 10 seconds and make sure it isn't too hot. If it’s hot let it cool for a few seconds. If you don’t want to use a hair dryer you can put the eyelash curler in hot water for 10 seconds and again make sure it isn’t too hot.

Step Three Position the lash curler Position your eyelash curler around your eyelashes – the upper lashes must be between the edges of the curler.

Step Four Squeeze the curler Carefully squeeze the edges of the eyelash curler together and hold for a few seconds.

Step Five Release the curler Gently release the curler from the lashes and repeat again if necessarily. Always make sure that the curler is fully open before removing it.

Step Six Apply mascara Look down into a mirror and stroke lashes upwards with just the tip of the brush. Make sure that the wand isn’t overloaded with mascara, if it is – take some off with a tissue before applying. Let the first coat dry and then apply the second coat.

Step Seven Comb the lashes After you have curled your lashes and have applied mascara you should comb the lashes using a lash comb to separate each lash. Combing the lashes also makes your lashes look more natural and remove any excess mascara.

  1. Thanks for the tips! I only started using an eyelash curler within the past two years. Never knew about the warming it up bit. BTW Kosta Boda (the Swedish glass company) has a limited edition line called 'Makeup' you should check it out.
