I personally like the heated eyelash curlers, like curling irons that curl your hair, they curl your eyelashes and help them stay curled for hours. It doesn’t get hot, just warm, so fear not! If you use the old-fashion traditional clamping eyelash curler, heat it up a bit with a blowdryer so that it is warm. (see “how-to” below) Also, replace curler pads every 2 months.
Again, im trying to get the best deals on stuff for you gals to purchase, my whole point of this blog is to show you how you can still achieve the look you want without burning your wallet. So I will have budget deals, and splurges, so you can choose what works for you, I know there are times we don’t mind spending a bit more on certain items, but if there is another product that does the same job, for cheap- then I am going with that one!
This eyelash curler from Shu Uemura ($18) is almost like the one you are used to, except it is designed so that your vision isn’t obstructed as well as curl lashes UP, if you notice on the old ones, you gotta hold it down, hence bringing your lashes down rather than its full curling potential.
They have a heated eyelash curler at Wal-Mart for like $9, I don’t remember the brand, but it’s fairly cheap.
Or if you want to splurge, you can buy this one at Sephora, $25: CLICK HERE
This one is perfect for you gals on the go! Sephora’s eyelash curler and comb duo, $5.
1. Eyelash curlers work best on clean eyelashes. Make sure eyelashes are free of mascara. If necessary, use eye makeup remover to remove old mascara.
2. With your blowdryer on low heat, blow air on the curler for no more than 5 seconds. Touch the metal. If it’s hot, let it cool for a few seconds. You don’t want to burn your eyelid.
3. Open the curler, clamp lashes near the roots. Hold for 10-30 seconds. Never curl lashes after you apply mascara — as the mascara dries, lashes can stick to the curler & be torn from the roots. Don’t bother curling bottom lashes.
4. Repeat on the other eye.
