Want Big Eyes? Consider an Eyelash Curler

I’m obsessed with eyelashes. They can really make a face. I like my own,they are curly and quite full. But what I gain in curl I lack in length. Hence the lengthening mascara addiction. For those if you that don’t have overly curly lashes you should give an eyelash curlers a try.

People are always shocked at the difference curled lashes makes to their eyes and face. Nearly all women would benefit from using one, especially ladies with straight lashes. It really opens up, lengthens and widens the eye.

The most important thing is to remember to curl your lashes before you apply mascara. If  you try it reverse it could damage the lashes. Also remember to clean your eyelash curler regularly to avoid eye infections.

Another tip I picked up is to blast your eyelash curlers with your hairdryer for a few seconds before using it. The heat will help curl the lashes and ensure hold.  Apply the tool the base of the lashes and press together for about 10 seconds. Be careful no the pinch the skin on your eyelids. If you have very straight lashes move the tool half way up the lashes and repeat.

The Bobbi Brown eyelash curler is a cult product but my favourite is one I picked up from Avon which self heats. If your unsure it’s best to stick to a metal curler.
