The eyelash curler is a safe tool if you know how to use it properly. If not, you can do more harm than good to your lashes. Below you will find some advices to help you safely turn your lashes into a lovely frame for your eyes.

– Use a makeup removal product to remove all traces of makeup (mainly mascara) from your lashes and eyes.

– Use an eyelash curler with a heating feature. If you only have a plain curler, heat it up with the help of a blow-dryer. The tool should be warm, but not hot.

– Place the rubbery part at the base of the lashes.

– Press and hold for anywhere between 10 to 30 seconds. The longer you hold, the bigger the bend will be, just do not press too hard or hold for too long.

– Never pull on the eyelash curler before you have freed your lashes from its grip or you will pull them out.

– Many people are of the opinion that it is better to apply mascara before curling the lashes for a stronger effect. However this is not a good idea. This facilitates the crumbing of the mascara and makes the lashes stick together.

– Give your lashes a few moments to cool down (you are using a warm tool, remember?) and then you can apply the mascara.

Now you have as pretty eyelashes as any celebrity.
