Everyone loves having long eyelashes. But some people spend tons of money on products that assist in eyelash growth, when just a few simple steps will help them achieve the long and voluminous eyelashes that they desire.
Tip #1: Invest in an eyelash curler (I use the Motives curler shown below) that has curved rubber edges instead of square ones. This will give you a smoothly curved eyelash rather than a square edge that will make your eyelashes kink in the middle of them (super annoying).
Tip #2: Heating up the curler and then curling your eyelashes will actually make them curl better than without heating it up. I have heard of some people using a blow-dryer to get this affect, however using a blow-dryer can be extremely dangerous [to your eyelashes, eyeball, or even the skin around your eye], if the curler is not cooled down properly before hand.
So let me tell you what I do. Before you curl your eyelashes, rub the rubber back and forth for 30-45 seconds; this is doing the same thing as a blow-dryer would, just much, much safer. Then continue to curl your eyelashes – gently squeezing the curler for 10 seconds. Top with a coat of lustrafy mascara to your top and bottom lashes (if desired) and vuala! Gorgeous, long, voluminous eyelashes!!!
Below I demonstrated what my eyelashes look like before I curled them, after I curled them, and after mascara is added:
Enjoy the rest of your day… with perfectly curled eyelashes.
