5 Easy Steps To Using An Eyelash Curler

Using an eyelash curler is, for many, a very daunting prospect. If you are finding yourself nodding and agreeing with me, then you are not dissimilar to myself a couple of months ago. But don't let this unfamiliar piece of equipment intimidate you, it truly can instantly enhance the shape of your eyes.

I naturally have a slight curl to my lashes, but I am still able to see the effects after using an eyelash curler! However, if you have straighter lashes then this will most definitely have a huge impact on you.

MAC Cosmetics Full Lash Curler (£16.00) is amazing, it is very gentle on the lashes but still achieves a beautiful, soft curl! Click HERE to view this product.

All you have to do is follow these five easy steps to achieve beautifully curled lashes.

1. It's important that you begin curling your lashes BEFORE you have applied any mascara. Many people do it differently and apply one coat and then use the curler, however I find that it can be more damaging to the lashes when using it with mascara as well as being more painful because the curler tends to stick to the lashes. 

2. Tilt your head upwards so that you are looking down into the mirror, this makes your lashes angular. This will make it much easier to curl them and will have a much greater outcome because if you are looking directly at a mirror your lashes are touching the crease of your eye, making it difficult to access them properly.

3. After making sure your curler is clean, place it onto your cheek and position it at the base of your lashes, making sure that you have gathered all of your eyelashes into the curler. (But be very careful not to pinch your lid!)

4. Once you are sure that you have positioned the curler correctly, squeeze down on the handle slowly until your eyelashes are between the two pads and hold it down. Pump the eyelash curler gently for ten seconds. 

5. Finish by applying your favourite mascara from the bases of your lashes right through to the tip! 

And there you have it, it really is a piece of cake! So next time you come across this funny looking device, go for it!

Lots of love, Kenzie xxx
