Curlicious Lashes!

Any professional makeup artist will tell you that one of the key factors to making eyes stand out is to curl your lashes! Using an eyelash curler can instantly add that extra va-va-voom and length to your lashes that will make your peepers pop! Many people are afraid to use the clunky, cosmetic contraption, but it really is easy to use. Here are a few tips:

1. Use on mascara-free eyes
2. Use a blow-dryer to heat the curler to ensure curling power
3. Open the curler and clamp lashes near the root...apply for 10-30 seconds
4. Apply mascara


Tarte Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler available at www.sephora.com for $15. I have this eyelash curler and it works well when I remember to curl my lashes!

Have you ever curled your lashes?

BGG, I have no need for teh lash curler. My lashes are so curly they almost form a perfect circle and no it's not cute. I'm constantly trying to figure out how to straighten them! If you find a contraption that will do this, let me know please!

BGG, thank you for the information on the lash curl.
Frankly I never have use one. I have seen my girlfriends use it but I'm a bit afraid of it.
I will pass your comment to my friends.
Thanks!

I didn't know about the blow dryer thing. I hope I don't poke my eye out. I do use a curler when I wear make-up, which is probably two or three days out of the week.

I do use an eyelash curler but have never thought of the idea of using a blow dryer to heat it. Thanks for the tip!

Rebee said...

I have one but I seldom use it. I never knew about the blow dryer trick. I'm going to definitely try it the next time. Thanks.

I curl my lashes even though I had a slight mishap and chopped off some of my lashes once.
