The curvature of our lashes is an undeniable beauty asset for an intense and sublimated look. Unfortunately, we are not all lucky enough to have long, naturally curled lashes. That’s why we can give nature a little help by using an eyelash curler.
This easy-to-use beauty tool can help you boost the curl of your lashes in just a few seconds, without the need to opt for a lash enhancement. Discover 5 practical tips on how to best use your eyelash curler.
CHOOSE YOUR EYELASH CURLER ACCORDING TO THE SIZE OF YOUR EYES
There are several types and sizes of eyelash curlers. If you have small eyes, choose eyelash curlers with flat tips. However, if you have large eyes, eyelash curlers with curved tips are more appropriate. For optimal effectiveness, you can also opt for a heated eyelash curler. This one is usually battery operated and will curl your lashes more easily with the help of heat.
Also remember to clean the rubber tip after each use and change it if it has any irregularities, as this can interfere with the proper functioning of this beauty tool. On the other hand, an uncleaned eyelash curler can leave unsightly traces of black eyeliner on your eyelids.
Finally, the price of this beauty tool is not very high (between 5 and 40 $). It is therefore advisable to opt for at least an intermediate range to be sure to use a quality product.
USE YOUR EYELASH CURLER ON CLEAN LASHES
An eyelash curler is not a dangerous tool. Nevertheless, it is essential that it is properly cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis, and that it does not show any trace of abnormality. Otherwise, the eyelash curler could damage your lashes. However, never use an eyelash curler if you have already applied your mascara, as mascara tends to harden the hairs on your lashes. This could then break them under the action of your device. So always keep in mind that it is important to have clean, makeup-free lashes before using your beauty tool.
EYELASH CURLER: INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
After cleaning your lashes, stand up straight in front of a mirror. For best results, look down. Grab your eyelash curler and place it as close to the root of your lashes as possible, without touching the skin of your eyelids. Press down on the curler for 5-10 seconds. Then, repeat this process two more times, in the middle of the length of your lashes and finally at the end. This will allow you to maximize the curl of your lashes.
BEAUTY TIPS TO FINISH YOUR MAKE-UP
Once your lashes are perfectly curled, finish your makeup by applying a black mascara. The best way to do this is to apply it in a Z-shape so that you don’t make any unsightly clumps. You can also perfect your makeup by drawing a line of eyeliner and adding an eye shadow that will illuminate your eyes, for a sublime look in all circumstances. Don’t forget to use our Lash Revitalash to care for and strengthen your lashes!
ARE THERE ANY OTHER BEAUTY ALTERNATIVES TO ENHANCE THE CURL OF YOUR LASHES?
The problem with eyelash curlers and makeup is that their effects are short-lived and you have to start over the next morning. But, fortunately, there are other solutions to quickly boost the size of your lashes.
USE FALSE EYELASHES
False eyelashes are a very practical alternative for an evening or a day. Very easy to apply and very inexpensive. It is applied in no time. Just put glue on your false eyelashes and place them over your natural lashes for an immediate intense volume effect. They are also easily removed with a little water or makeup remover. This alternative is very practical for occasional use. However, if you want a long-term solution, the technique of eyelash extensions will be more suitable.
EYELASH EXTENSIONS FOR A LONG-LASTING EFFECT
Eyelash extensions must be done in a beauty salon by professionals. Indeed, the glue used if it is badly applied can be dangerous and cause unpleasant skin reactions. This treatment can be a little long, because it consists of gluing artificial eyelash extensions one by one to the root of your eyelashes, in order to intensify their volume. The effect of an eyelash extension can last between 3 to 4 weeks. In general, after this period, touch-ups are necessary. Despite certain contraindications that may seem restrictive, the extension of natural lashes allows you to obtain a flattering volume and to keep it intact for several weeks.
