How To Curl Your Eyelashes

Learning to curl your eyelashes is the quickest and easiest way to make your lashes look fuller and thicker. Some of us were born with a natural curl to our lashes, but for those of us who were born with straight or limp eyelashes, reaching for an eyelash curler is a necessity. A good eyelash curler instantly lifts the eyes and makes them appear more open. If you’ve never used an eyelash curler before don’t let it intimidate you. We’re going to give you the tips and tricks you need to create a perfect curl in seconds.

What you’ll need:

  • An eyelash curler
  • A spoolie

Let’s get started:

Step 1: Start at the base of your lashes. Make sure to get all of your lashes in the curler, making sure not to get any skin in the eyelash curler. Hold down for 3 seconds, then release..

Step 2: Curl your lashes in 3 segments–at the base, middle of the lash, then the tip of the lash to get that natural curl.

Step 3: Use a spoolie to separate your lashes. Voila!

Curling your lashes, regardless of whether you plan on wearing a lot of makeup or not, can make a dramatic difference in the way your eyes appear. Try out these tips and perfect your lash game!
